Black eyes

Black eyes where staring at me.
Black eyes surrounded in red!


 almost blood red!
encompassing that bright black eye

2 black eyes,
 wearing bright yellow eye liner

faded and shattered

wrinkled and shattered black eye,
wearing whats left of its pretty yellow liner

Fallen and spent she now lays on the ground.
Storing energy to stand tall again next year.

(I hope you enjoyed my black eyes today. These pretty tulips were photographed last year. This year they grew long and leggy in the early warm spring and fell over once the cooler temperatures came back to town. Last week I did my first attempt at cleaning up the mess, that my planting beds are this year. This one featured is the only one I was able to get done before fatigue and pain zapped me. My physical therapy continues along my road to recovery. Day by day I fight to get stronger, keep up a good attitude and when possible stop here and share a smile, colors, a new discovery or just a surprise for you! Thanks so much for stopping in again. You are a big part of my recovery process!)

Have you found any eyes,
black or otherwise, in your yard?


  1. I found a cat the other day, but that was it. There are lots and lots of weeds too.

    I hope you start feeling better soon. Such a long road to full recovery.

    Have a terrific day Faythe. :)

    Hey I wondered what you were talking about on the black eyes and now I know :) Nice to see your flowers making an early rise, shame about the cooler weather spoiling things but they will return my great friend and when they do the colours will be amazing :) Hey I hope that you are enjoying your afternoon and looking forwards to a nice and wicked, perhaps even naughty evening also? :) Well I only said :)
