many weaklings standing together

Except yours is much better. Nice!

I the picture goes so well with your words. Beautifully expressed.

M. Shahin said...

How very true and in such simple words!

I like these little short poems with the photos. Lots of wisdom in a nutshell.

That squirrel one is cute and funny :-)

I've been busy with college and studies, so I wasn't able to visit for a while, but I'm glad I did today.

Smiling finally after being in a bad mood about math.

Thank you M. Shahin, Natalia, and Julie. Sometimes fewer words are much better. It's that time of year in Ohio, when the cornstalks come to life.

"We certainly do!" said HE in a deep 'husky' voice.

Yes we do, life alone is no life I think

Imemine said...

Of course, but aloneness is not loneliness. And of course, you're never alone.

Beautiful, Don. As always. So often this notion that to need someone is somehow something of weakness is termed "independence". We are born to need each other. Thank you for these wonderful words.

I like to decorate the many columns on my porch with cornstalks that still contain husks of corn. It provides a celebratory feel to the season and provides the many animals with a meal.
Great picture.....as always
