Strange Things

Of the most unusual things I have seen, are flowers in bloom in Fall, not spring; dogs catching popcorn between their teeth, a parakeet eating a bite of roast beef. A horse, wearing polka dots, a skunk riding upon a fox, a dolphin fin-walking, on a dock, snow on a spring equinox. Last night when I looked up at the moon, I nearly fell into a swoon; a fairy on an owl, there flew, it’s like being in a cartoon. She smiled at me and gently waved, I stood there watching, oh so brave; like an enchanted idiot, I caved, and right back at her, I did wave.

Very imaginative. Seems to make me remember a film with the same title.

Hello M.L. ... interesting indeed. It reminds of a few quirky things I've seen in nature and from pets around the home - thank you M. L. - Lindsay

Pride the LORD for His creation, that still surprises, as do our imagination & human creativity. Enjoyed rhymes too.
