Beauty Day 47

Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.


Beauty Day 47 Friend in a Ditch

Beauty is…the friend

who crouches

in a cold, wet ditch

listening for the leak

that still plagues

my main water line

He knows nothing about buying

a romantic gift

nor even one that’s original

except maybe

the time he bought me

the unabridged dictionary

for my birthday

we weren’t getting along by then

I still use it all the time

the gardening tools for Christmas

I could have done without

but enough

you get the idea


it’s simple chocolate

albeit the best in town

This is the guy

who thoroughly enjoys McDonald’s

for Thursday breakfast

then spends the next four hours

looking for that baffling leak

action as gift

that benefits

only me not him

Should I still be pushing for changes

or simply take him as he is
