☀Sunlit Sunday: Season 2, Week #2

I was surprised and delighted with the turn-out at last week's ☀Sunlit Sunday. It seems many of us are ready to seek out something sunny at the beginning of this year.

Sunlight was at a premium in my area, but I did take a few photos while it swung by for a quick visit. Eggs, the start of something new, seemed like an appropriate subject.

Looking at these photos reminded me of a poem I first read decades ago. I pulled the book off the shelf to find it and share it with you.


Reader, in your hand you hold 
A silver case, a box of gold
I have no door, however small,
Unless you pierce my tender wall,
And there's no skill in healing then
Shall ever make me whole again.
Show pity, Reader, for my plight:
Let be, or else consume me quite.

        -Jay Macpherson

  7. Good Afternoon Karen, I read the egg poem a couple of times....loved it. I'm sorry but I cannot participate in Sunlit Sunday as we have not had any sun at all, just grey days I'm afraid and the forecast for the next few days is snow....maybe we will get some sunshine after the snow....fingers crossed.

    Best Wishes
