A Goose On The Roof

Happy Friday, everyone. Have a silly goose, fun weekend.

A Goose On the Roof

Woke up this morning
And what did I see?
A Goose on the roof!
He was looking at me.

This is no spoof!
He was there on that roof,
Just standing, aloof
I swear to you all --
And here is the proof

I Learned Everything I Need to Know About Attachment from Flowers

Flowers can teach us all we need to know about how to enjoy life without attachment. 

These tulips arrived on my birthday, tightly closed. 

My friend and I enjoyed them at breakfast. Then we 
brought them in. They turned toward the sun.

Today, their heads droop. They will not last long. 

Tomorrow they will begin to wilt and die. 

Shall we enjoy life, like tulips, so beautiful, 
such a gift -- just for now?
