With a smile helping someone
Open your eyes
To our beautiful planet

How many dollars per tail?
Ripped from their mothers hearts
How could anyone take part?
After I posted the above- I wanted to write something a lot more posisitve-so here's a second try for Magpie Tales and also for Jingle's Potluck Poetry:
Magpie 40.5 and Jingles Potluck Poetry- this week's theme is Moods, Feelings and Emotions
My children are little monkeys-
hanging from trees and swinging with ease-
life is so simple wanting only to please-
their thoughts are wise under those blond curls
much more valuable than a string of pearls
When my youngest son was only 4 years old he said to me-
"Are you happy because it's a sunny day?"
With a start I heard those words and realized that I was allowing the weather to affect how I behaved. From then on I viewed each day as a gift and not a bother if it wasn't a sunny day. He helped me see how ridiculous I was to let myself get into such a bad habit. A wise child indeed.

Later after we were back our hotel the baby turtles
