Friend - A Gift to Self



A friend I'd like - someone like me
Fun and cheeky, full of integrity.
Gardening lover, nature attuned
of life's useless baggage pruned
perhaps also a crafter of words
Enjoying too, the flight of birds
A hawk winding a spiral on the wing
is a particularly magical thing.

So here be a quirky, crazy, active sort
Uses gift of the gab in glowing retort.
Nature guardian and explorer of seaside pools
Crafty proponent for reading the rules!

This is wonderful - and sounds like a bit of my bio, lol! Wonderfully whimsical and substantive write, and I can tell you enjoy the truly beautiful things, not beauty itself. Excellent write, Virginia - enjoyed every syllable! :-)

Cool must read your bio! High praise from one who crafts beauty so effortlessly it seems. Beauty must be inter-woven with one's life force to be truly known. Not what is seen but what is valuable intrinsically to the whole.
