I find that everytime I sit in this room, the green of the wall just mesmerizes me. The chair I sit in is cozy and I almost start to doze but I need to look at those luscious pears so that when I fall asleep,the memories of those pears will be real when I open my mouth and bite down on those pears.

Have a great weekend.

Little Kimmy Applegate
was sitting in her chair
when she saw a couple tasty fruits
that made her stop and stare
She looked into a mirror
and said to the person there
I know that I just met you, dear
But don't we make pear?

A painting which tugs hard at the imagination. Lovely.

Two Boscs, a chair, a peaceful pair.
What else you suppose, Is lurking there?

Behind the art, is a hidden vault,
A prying thief it's meant to halt.

The floorboard cracks, conceal a cent
For years to come, will stay unspent

But what's alarming, I might add
Is the 3 inch roach on the cushion pad

When Momma comes to sit a while,
You'll hear her screams for a country mile.

Yes the picture is very bittersweeet.

How was you day.

Love Renee

(poem by Therese L. Broderick of Albany, NY, USA)


More than a million and a half
claims of having
"a perfect pear" --

jellies and chutneys,
cocktails and chocolate-
covered fruits,

fashions and wedding favors,
boutiques, caterers
and upscale marketplaces.

An earring. Or two.
And the perfect female figure
for sitting in a plump chair

searching on a laptop
for the most perfect ever
pair of pears.
