Croissants, Poem and Dust

29 May

1   We love croissants and usually keep them for special occasions. Every Birthday Breakfast has croissants! We have recently taken to having them, just now and then, for our breakfast and what a treat they are!



2  This delightful little poem came my way the other day and I saved it until we had croissants for breakfast!

Petit Dejeuner – Linda Pastan
I sing a song
of the croissant
and of the wily French
who trick themselves daily
back to the world
for its sweet ceremony.

Ah to be reeled 
up into morning 
on that crisp,

3   I was delighted to find this cobweb today – I love the way it seems to be the lead between the woman and her dog as they both look for his ball in the hole. Copper sculpture by Jeremy Beswick.

      I think you are right – we both look for the positive and the lovely in our lives. Thank you for calling in. Your comments are always much appreciated. 🙂

    Croissants, oh so tasty; cobwebs and abseiling spiders, fascinating possibilities.

    The cobweb looks like it belongs to the sculpture.
