Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Growing pains

A vegetable
a vegetable
a vegetable I grew.

I thought it was
I thought it was
A favorite of yours too.

But you said 'red'?
and I heard 'green'?
Will be the strangest
will be the strangest
will be the strangest vegetable I've seen.

Two vegetables
two vegetables
two vegetables I grew.

A nice green one for me
a nice green one for me
and a nice red one for you!

  1. Hi Dixie!
    I'm smiling away here, because I think that the little bunny rabbit that visits our garden is wishing for the green veggies! I do love fresh vegetables from the garden ~nothing like them~ so sweet and delicious! any color!
    Have a happy, happy week*

  2. Hi Maria,
    Always good to hear from you! I've been loving your blog all spring and now into summer.
    We have a chocolate brown bunny who sits by the hedge and watches the yard. I have a feeling he likes veggies too!!
    Thank you, and I hope you have a happy week too.

  3. What a delightful poem, Dixie. You make me smile like a child enjoying a favorite story!:)

    I'll take those fresh veggies - green or red!

    Did I tell you how much I enjoy your pictures on the sidebar - I do!

    Smiles & blessings,

  4. Thank you, M. Sometimes I get these silly thoughts running through the brain, and before I know it, there's a silly song. So glad you came along!

    How about okra & tomatoes???
