Sampler

Peanut butter is the preferred food of saints;
Devils are keen on cranberries.

Fives and sevens denote disaster;
The ace of spades, mystery.

If I could organize each beat of my heart
Like spools in a drawer,
Then I could mend love
Then I could darn devotion.

Red is always passion;
Keep yellow close for hope.

But remember, rain starts on the rooftop,
And two strands twined make rope.

I like the play on words with "darn devotion." This is very cool, Shay!

To me this is all about choices and making decisions; I've been on that rooftop.

Fireblossom said...

LOL Jannie, It may well be "nibmle" too. I wouldn't be a bit surprised. *rolleyes*

Glad you liked that, Mama Zen. Hehe.

I'll see what the Magic 8 Ball says about that, Pouty. ;-)

Hi, thanks for your kind comment on my blog (the cat&dog). Love the picture in your banner, just give me a cup of coffee and I would like to sit there for hours *sigh*
Ah well, back to reality...bye and you're welcome to visit anytime of course (like the background music too, which is a first, I usually find it annoying)

I love this, Shay, always a delightful surprise to be found in your word garden. Lovely.

Fireblossom said...

LOL, but I still don 't think you are quite saintly, RK! ;-)

Hello, Carolina, and welcome! That's a lovely place to sit and relax, I can attest. And you know, you're the third person to say the exact same thing about the music, which really pleases me. I hope you will visit again!
