Open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things...Psalm 119: 18
We have mosquitoes
Peskier than a fly
That bite worse
Than a bee...
One got me in the eye
Miracles of miracles
I can still see...
And I didn't die...
Poetry by me AJP
This self portrait definitely was not posed...A mosquito did indeed get me in the eye just before the shutter released and to top it off, it was on the day of my birthday ...(Not a nice greeting!) .The good news is that it didn't draw blood and I didn't go blind:) All the same it is one of lifes awkward moments totally unplanned and not expected.
