Eight Photos of Happiness


Move Into a Brand New Light!

I noticed Mr. C molting recently, his magnificent red plumage looking grey and scruffy as the feathers prepare to fall out. Soon he will grow a whole new set of feathers for winter so he will look his best in my winter photos against the snow.
Sometimes I wish I could shed my feathers and grow a new set, too. Or I wish I could be like a snake and shed my old skin and emerge with a fresh new one. Younger and slimmer might be nice, too. Oh well, can't  have everything!

A cardinal does a feather purge As summer comes to a close, Soon new feathers will emerge Mr. C will be ready to pose,
How I wish that I could molt like birds To become a brand new me, But maybe I can shed some words In that way I’ll be free,
Words like I can’t or I’m too old I’m too stupid and slow, Words like these just leave me cold These words have got to go!
Shed the words and do a purge Move into a brand new light, Allow the new me to emerge Positive, happy and bright!
