Our Creator would never have made such lovely days, and have given us the deep hearts to enjoy them, above and beyond all thought, unless we were meant to be immortal.

heirloom Delaware chicks
heirloom tomato plants
with names like Mr Stripey, Pink Ox Heart,
Black Krim, Crimson Currant, red and yellow Brandywine
it seems to me, at least in my experience,
that early breeds of chicks are much livelier,
bright eyed and bushy tailed...
or these little women were just so pleased
to be out of their mailing box.
It was all I could do to keep them in the basket to have
their likeness taken.
~We're ready for warm days in the gardens
and soft evenings on the porch ~
I hope this finds you all enjoying the same
