Just Ponderin’... on yawns from screams

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 

Small round snowflakes float on air
Bouncing, Seuss-like, here... and there.
All the while the blue sky beams
And I dream of yawns replacing screams.

A snowy owl gazes down
From rooftops, outcrops east of town
O'er fields and streets and coves and streams
As I dream of yawns replacing screams.

Open ears and hearts (and mouths at pause)
Replacing cacophonies of cause
When we tire of casualties, extremes
And seize the moments when yawns...
Replace our screams.

Thanks for readin'
