Just Ponderin’... on being in it together

About this blog:

  • Just Ponderin’ will celebrate its tenth anniversary in August of 2022 and now (pinch us!) has thousands of followers from all around the world, including many who love and/or have connections to Maine. JoHn and I made a small island off of Boothbay Harbor our full-time home in 2017 and still can’t believe we get to live here. We now share our nearly 200 year-old home with a German ShepHerd harboring a royalty complex (HRH The Princess Bunny Blaze), and a new-to-us Second Hand Dog all the way from Oklahoma (Belle/Belle-ah). I’m thrilled to have Just Ponderin’ included in the Boothbay Register and Wiscasset Newspapers. Just Ponderin’ is chock full of observations on - and celebrations of - the ordinary and extraordinary bits of everyday life.  If you want to get in touch, give me a shout at lisadingle@justponderin.com. And feel free to visit justponderin.com. I’d love that. Thanks for readin’. - Lisa 

The greys, the blacks, the blues, the reds
They land amongst my flower beds
All covered now, with mounds of white
A singing songing hue'd delight

Three walk the paths, and now three more
Just outside my garden door
And several come, and several go
Hung feeders rocking to and fro

The storm is clearly tired now
About to take its final bow
The birds have come in search of food
So grateful for this interlude

I note the birds who often fight
O'er food and space and who is right
Whilst flocking with like-colored tribes
And giving off 'you're different' vibes

Now they gather all together
Color blind birds of allfeather
In tough times I see... an understanding.
And smile at Nature's slight of handing.

Thanks for readin'.
