Craicin’ Good Fun by Kimberly O’Neill
Stepping into a pub on our nightly adventures,
wall to wall conversations and World Cup on the screen.
A young gent tells his tales of music, song and dance,
craic’ everywhere to be seen.
Guinness and hard cider flow in harmony with the music,
feet tapping, loud laughing from locals and their stories.
A brilliant reel on the fiddle plays in this busy corner pub…
You can feel it in the walls, the history of a town and its’ glories.
A craic: the combination of gossip, information, artistic performance and,
of course, booze that go to make a good night out.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Close Up.”
A sunflower in the garden
growing taller everyday
reaching upward toward the sun
in anticipation of blossoming
becoming a ray of sunshine
for all to admire.
Carousel” by Johnny Wheeler
Brightly painted horses prance on poles made out of brass
The jumpers and the standers with their eyes made out of glass
A blur of colored horses as the carousel gains speed
As little girls and boys sit tall Upon their wooden steed.

I am excited looking for those first signs of spring, but with such a brutal winter I guess it may show a little later this year. Here are my photos from spring last year. – Kim
The first day of spring is one thing,
and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them
is sometimes as great as a month.
