When shall I awake?...Proverbs 23:35


A rude awakening

Dreaming it was spring..

How could there be snow

When I saw flowers grow?

Poetry by me, AJP


The previous SP done in April 2009, could be a forerunner before I awoke from the dream re-enactment that I shot Feb 5th, 2011 and they actually tie in together as a skit... The trees were frosted here and yes, it was COLD leaning my back against the snow bank....But you either have to grin and bear winter or go completely crazy:) However, I might have had some explaining to do if anyone drove through our driveway just then and saw me wrapped in a black blanket wearing pajamas outside in the winter time:)

See where I was before the awakening:) (A Rip Van Winkle time warp)
