Q: In Need of Inspiration in Tampa and Surrounding Areas

A: Do you know?

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalms 94: 19

She closes her eye to blink
and maybe to think
The sweet nectar is yummy
Better than a root beer float
To comfort her tummy...
As it slides down her throat.
Poetry by me AJP

This is a morning shot taken at 10:22 AM and I caught her between a blink.
