pensive faces
sun warms earth and flowers
smiles begin to glow

  1. A lovely poem Gabrielle. I love pansies but I don’t think I can ever think of them being just flowers anymore. I will see their little faces and wonder what they are thinking about.

    1. They may be talking about us behind our backs Helen – haha – ‘what’s that silly woman smiling about!’ grumble, grumble ‘and why is this dirt so gritty’ ‘ooh, I think I can feel a nasty worm tickling my roots’ 😉

    1. Thanks Ben – I love the Captain Haddock avatar too (it’s actually a photo of a cake/biscuit that someone made – I nicked it off the internet – will have to change it soon before I get sued by Herge incorporated – hehehe). Pansies are right up there with sunflowers for making me smile.

    1. Thanks Kate – I took that photo a while ago (can’t remember what month) – it’s winter here now, but probably you would think it feels more like an English spring.

    1. They do look like cranky little buggers Stafford (but that was too many syllables – hahahaha) Thanks Stafford – my Captain Haddock face is making up for the cranky face stuff 😉 – blistering barnacles!

      1. Cloistered oysters! I reckon if you ever thought pansies were pansies, see how Disney used the pansy face as a model when he created the very un-pansy character of Yosemite Sam!

  2. I’ve thought that about pansies too – sometimes they seem a little pensive. But the sun has such power to cheer us. I loved this, Gabe!
