Bunnyfest - Magpie

A Magpie Tale

Pass The Bread Please

Easter is To Me

Memories of eating
real bread squares 
and cold grape juice
and singing.

Enhancing the perfect white egg.

and yellow daffodils.



Sunsets arriving later.

Animals in our lives.

open meadows
green grasses
fresh air
through fields
of springtime fair!

Bringing out our trusty old golf cart.
Accepting the years 
as little ones 

Decorating the table!
Twinkle lights.

Fixing everyone's favorite dishes
joke telling

funny happy faces.

Did I mention peeps?

Reflecting on those not with us.


Big hats
fancy bows
Easter Egg Hunts
The Golden Egg

a giddy up
in everyone's step
that's about it!

"In the oddity or maybe the miracle of life,
the roots of something new
frequently lie in the decaying husks
of something old."
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Enjoy your week and take good care of you!

Hello, Karen good to see pictures of your family at Easter. This is the first time I've written with Mag in some time although I've been writing just with other groups. I hope your Easter was a good one.
