Magic beans, that grow into a message. What a clever idea and a delightful, sentimental way to express, the growth of your love. There are several sites that sell these. I found them on Amazon.
They even have a Happy Birthday one! I want to wish Yvonne, from Welcome to My World of Poetry Blog, Happy Birthday! I feel honored to share this day with you and your granddaughter.
What else do we have in common? Birthdays, poetry and today I mentioned a squirrel on my Poets United prompt?! I know you love slides, I'm the swing girl. ;D I hope you have a wonderful day!
Best Wishes @>----------

I have to get one for my Mom. I didn't have time, but she is moving into a bigger apartment and I know what I am going to buy her.
For the prompt#96 News, I decided to use my horoscope, from Freewill Astrology. Rob Brezsny writes some zany, insightful and colorful scopes. I thought it would make an interesting poem.
I did my poem Austin Kleon style.
I will try to get back and write another poem. I have to go pick up daughter from school and run her to the college. They are having a performance there tonight. She apologized for having it on my birthday. I said, "Are you kidding? How wonderful to see a colorful performance on my day!" She is a Colorguard.
Our minds harbor pockets of imprints
They rise up and render us to psychic versions
You know the drill:
give and receive love
Put yourself in the path of beautiful art
Exercise your imagination
your mind's eye
with wonder and vitality.
Eliminate junk words
saying things you don't mean
Stop scornful assertions
Before you sleep
review your day
Sit in front of a turned-off TV
make up story that
this tale aloud
Take on job title
do something everyday
to cultivate grace and intrigue
if you're an artist
your aesthetic into public places
memorize poems and slip them
program your cell phone
Vivaldi's Stabat Mater in C Minor
Scrawl passages onto walls at
If you are curious; I was!
