Today's prompt was to use a reference book as random inspiration. Took my ideas from A Butterfly Encyclopaedia and 'The Awemanac' an almanac of daily inspiration, to come up with a random mix.
On This Day
A blue butterfly will land on a flower
in your path. Lycaenidae, the wish-granter.
Polyommatus Icarus, our common blue.
The Lyrid meteor shower will peak
and you will discover an unruly truth.
Barbara Streisand was born, Shirley Mac Laine too.
(We are into Taurus season now.)
The leaves on the trees are a bright lime green.
Did you know there is a type of lettuce called tango?
Eat like a queen and then dance!
Shakespeare's birthday and death day have gone
and here we are,
under a waning pink moon.
Thought for the day:
Somewhere, a song is begun.
amidst the humdrum.
