A calendar can make time stand still.
I kept the apple blossom from May
for months and then  it was
impossible to turn over the kingfisher
which gladdens September.

    I always look to see what my birth months has as a photo..usually the daffodil…I’ll take apple blossoms all year long…”turning the pages of the calendar” is a smart phrase here..

  3. Something is just good it lingers.. appleblossom would be so good to have. Long time since I have this type of calander, and I would certainly let the applcblossom stay…

    this made me smile… we have an art calendar this year…and some of the pics were just too good to have them only for a month, so we kinda let them and did big jumps to the next one we liked much… glad you joined us viv

    oh good thinking, keeping the apple blossoms of May… & the kingfisher (so that’s how to make time stand still) – lovely poem


  8. So happy you made it. I would relish the scent of apple blossoms, now. I’m such a sunshine, person…California born and bred.

    I always buy my mother a calendar with beautiful photos of Sussex. She sent me one with monthly bread recipes. 🙂

    Viv, sometimes I forget to turn the pages of the calendar too. Months pass WAY too fast.

    I smiled when I read your words, Viv. And now I wonder whether, in a few days, you will turn the pages until you reach December.
