A Prayer for Good Health

April 24, 2020 – All but one of these images are from my little corner of the world.

No better news than this I think

To hear that you are in the pink

The pink of health a rosy glow

Is what we all would like to know

Pink azalea in the spring

Blooming, fresh as anything

Climbing Lily 005.jpg

Glory lily on the vine

Glowing bright and feeling fine

Pink caladium by the door

Smiling, cheerful evermore

Pink curcuma in the ground

Hale and hearty, safe and sound

Like a grandma with her first

Tickled pink, and fit to burst

Roseate spoonbill in fine feather

In the pink, whatever the weather

And when to slumber down we sink

What better friend than a friend who’s pink

  2. This makes me smile. I love pink. Donald’s grandmother asked me one time if I liked pink. I said yes. She said she had these old pink dishes she received when she got married. It was so special to receive her beautiful crystal glasses and plates. 💗
