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.
So terrible, I can't even bear to go to the link, it would bum me out way too much.ReplyDelete
Capuchine monkeys freak me out ...ReplyDelete
It is sad and I don't understand why this country (USA) still allows creatures to be imported into this country.ReplyDelete
Sad, but it happens.ReplyDelete
Loved both of your Magpies!!! Your little four year old's comment reminded me a a day long ago when my then four year old while playing on wet grass with no shoes, swinging around an old light post .... got a shock and when he roused simply asked me 'mom, am I in heaven?'ReplyDelete
I went to the link and couldn't believe my eyes. Importing ivory into the UK is illegal so I have no idea how the importation of these monkeys can possibly be allowed. It doesn't make sense. What an incredible cruelty.ReplyDelete
Children have a gift for making us see things differently. Nice post
A wise little chap indeed. Nice poem.ReplyDelete
wow, you are so capable.
love your cute imaginations here.
I realized quite early on, that I set the tone of the household, and tried to give my kids a sunny day, every day.ReplyDelete
