Oh angry bird
look at you there
staring fiercely at me,
but you bring so much joy
to so many kids, including my own.
You’re even inspiring.
Beckoning me to take a photograph of you
with your beady little eyes,
furrowed eyebrows and pointy beak.
Who knew you were such a model?
You definitely have that je ne sais quoi.
– Angelica Mercado
I hope you guys are well.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, less writing these past few
months days. Just going through the motions and preparing for Christmas. The tree and decorations are up at the Mercado household, the online wish list has been emailed and the gift shopping is very SLOWLY getting checked off. As for my angry bird inspiration above, my kids are always taking their toys, whether they’re bath toys or not, to the bathroom and while taking a shower the other day, I spotted the angry bird on the dollhouse table. It beckoned to be photographed. So I did. And then gave it some words.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
