When everything is
Ordinary then boredom
Will develop

Whilst lots of different
Originality can
Wear you out completely

What I love are
Opportunities for
Whimsical moments

Which I look back on
Often with a smile and think


Wow was the prompt by the lovely Ella for her last challenge at real toads.  Rachel loved the pattern of the poem and wrote her own wow poem.

Wow has its place in the mundane of daily living.

Ella said...

I love how you were clever with you
so fun! YES, we need wows to take our breath away and remind us of the world's beauty!

Finding that in between can be hard, but it is the birthplace of the very moments you are talking about. I think you just gave us one of them. Loved it.

Kim Nelson said...

Yes... a balance between routine and wonder is just right.

Helen said...

... and a big WOW from me!!

Loredana Donovan said...

Whimsical moments can definitely bring a smile :)

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I love the whimsy of this - and I LOVE that your daughter writes poems too!

Laurie Kolp said...

Sometimes it is in the looking back that we see the wow.

Mary said...

I too like whimsical moments. It is nice when the ordinary times of life make one say "Wow."

Peggy said...

Yes we take our ordinary so for granted when for most people over the human history it would be Wow indeed. And fun that by stepping aside and looking back we can see the amazing in our everyday life.

I agree with Laurie...looking back we can see the wow we missed. Also there is the wow in everyday...we just don't look. I too like whimsical moments.
