Shadow Shot Sunday...An Ode to a Friend...



what lies beneath
a new fallen snow
a heart full
of love
for a friend of the soul


my funny lil' Valentine
full of life and of thrill
you bring to my heart
a laugh
and a dream and a will


to be kind to the all
a wish eas'ly given
if only the all
would accept
'tis a gift from the Heav'n


you spread love
from a heart that bursts free
with antics n mischief I laugh
till I...cry
and you force me to see


the love that is pulled
from a half buried heart
from a season
of sorrow
full love takes a start


my wee lil' companion
my love and my friend
I give smooches
and butt kicks
my BFF to the end!




Tis Sunday in Australia and we send you the love in this time of sadness, as your beloved country burns, yes me and my wee lil' terrorist, Scratchy, the love of my life, helps me usher in Valentines Day and Shadow Shot Sunday. Rush on over with your very best shadow shots, you can never have too much fun...right Tracy... HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

This is so lovely as always.

Your shadow has a delicate magic as it seems to lightly wander over the snow!

And your comments on our fires are just received with grateful thanks. Yesterday morning (Saturday) I wandered onto my verandah and the sun seemed like a ball of fire. The sky was awash in pink and the white cockatoos seemed bathed in a pink haze.

It seemed a terrible beauty.

I am just so grateful to be here on the Mornington Peninsula, safely away from the heart of the fires. But each day I drive to school, I drive toward smoke. At times, it can be difficult to breathe. Yet that seems such a small problem when others have lost everything.

Big hugs to you and Scratchy for Valentine's Day.
