Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope your day is fine!
Sometimes I look, but I don’t see.
Is it the same, for you, like me?
This world that God did make for all…
For each of us…the small and tall…
Is wondrous, beautiful, and fun…
Adventure-full for everyone!
Each day when I wake up and see,
The sun rise up to look at me,
The daytime shows so much to sight…
Because dark’s gone and now there’s light.
I’m able to look all around,
To see the things my eyes have found.
But there are things not plain to sight…
Not even in the bright daylight!
I like to look, so hard, to see,
Small things not seen so easily!
The things my eyes can’t see from far…
Like gentle lines of green there are
In this small flower’s inside part…
‘Tis an instance with which to start!
Or how about seein’ a stone?
Or a black crow standin’ alone!
Can you see what is on this tree?
Those pretty pine cones…can you see?
These maple leaves…a work of art!
Just like the flower…”Bleeding Heart!”
Sometimes I’ll glance…not “see” so well,
But then I SEE and want to tell,
I’m lookin’ at something so grand,
I want to tell all in the land!
Not everyday a dragonfly
Is not too high up in the sky…
And close enough to really see,
Without bein’ afraid of me!
And who would know a big snowball,
Is just a bunch of flowers…small!
Or that a shamrock’s flower white,
Would have amazing petals bright!
Or even to find shamrocks where
You do not know they’re even there!
And do watch for the gentle puffs
That breeze does bring with such soft “hhhufffs!”
Sometimes the big pink catches eyes!
To look around…would be so wise…
Little daisies are hidin’ where,
The brush will show just big pink there!
The fuzzy brush won’t try to hide
Spider’s web, hard to see, outside!
The grand white queen’s buds are beauties,
Must look close to see these cuties!
With pink queen’s princess buds…the same…
Lovely! To not “see”…’tis a shame!
How about when you think you see
Just a flower…BUT THERE’S A BEE!
To watch water’s always a treat…
God’s artwork…an amazing feat!
Amazing, huh?! Indeed ’tis so!
One more fun thing, I want to show…
Sometimes I watch and then I see…
Someone is lookin’ back at me!
I am so glad we talked today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #41)

I really liked this installment. And you held your “theme” of ‘looking but not always seeing’ throughout. I think this might be one of the best Finney Adventures. And the pictures and supporting commentary were great!

To my dear Friend Poppie from your dear Friend Finney!
Thank you, Poppie, thank you so much!
Isn’t that such a grand kind touch,
For you to write to me today,
And to have these nice things to say!
Isn’t it true that we don’t see
All that’s before us…you and me?
Sometimes it’s hard to focus in
On everything that we’re seein’…
I want to try to do this, though,
Because I like to learn and know
All that I can about this life
And all about your lovely wife!
I know that she is very blessed,
and, that you, too, are very blessed! 😉
I am so glad you took the time,
To read and comment on my rhyme!
I thank you for your note today!
God bless you is what I do say!
