Rictameter of the Day: Orange Appreciation


Orange Appreciation

O
range.
Cheerful color,
Tasty fruit to eat while
Dreaming winter dreams of places
Where the trees are dotted with these orange
Orbs designed to bring us joy. Your
Fruit and color join to
Make us love you,
Orange.

This is Barbara again. I love your writing and will continue to be a reader. I am a senior citizen and have recently started my own blog writings about life at my age. I have added your site to my permanent links and will recommend it to my friends. Thanks again for your insights into senior life.

Thanks again. I love to write. I hope you've checked out my other blog, too (there are several links between the two). I love writing about senior life, since I'm living it.

Sorry. Of course you've checked out my other blog, since you've left comments on both. I'm happy to have you as a reader.

I welcome you to my blog also and hope you will comment from time to time. Several months ago I decided to share my experiences, thoughts, readings, etc. as I created my Serenity Room. Blogging is a new experience for me and I just love it even though it causes me to feel more vulnerable. I have always written privately, but putting my thoughts out where all can view them is very different. Barbara www.theserenityroom.blogspot.com

I do love orange! The color and the fruit, both. What a cheerful rictameter.
I will visit barbara's blog after reading her comments; love the name of it and her discussion about vulnerability. Which reminds me, I got up the nerve to put a poem of mine on my blog a few days ago. In the post I mentioned your book & encouragement to write!
