Muttering birds

My first posting ever for Hedgewitch’s Friday 55. I am spreading my wings a bit.  Friday 55 December 15 2017

Birds mutter among themselves
The angel that tops the tree
always has a serene and mindless
look upon her face –
she holds a candle in each hand
pure white wings boldly spread.
The birds that peck on the sill
look in at her in wonder –
How can she look like that
with the tree sticking out of her ass?

    Bwahaha. I’m thinking of spreading wings, too. I feel like I’m stuck a bit though I will keep dVerse. I just need to get out of the insanity of busyness as the hubby gets better.

      That insanity will make one crazy. brad broke a pair of his glasses and needed his spare pair. He begged me to bring them to him…all the way in the other side of town, 45 minutes with good traffic. I took them but I wasn’t happy. He didn’t think that I was busy making a ton of chicken salad for his family get together tomorrow, just that I was home. It sounds as if David is getting restless.

    If I laugh any harder, my head might explode. I’m with the bird. All that flora should sprout at least an outrageous grimace.

    Thank you for this. Hysterical.

    I’ve often felt a bird would be far more appropriate on the top of the tree, but I’m sure they highly prefer to be on the outside looking in, and making skewering observations (as it were.) This is a 55 the originator of the meme, Galen Hayes, would have loved–I hope he can hear the echoes wherever he has passed. I really really enjoyed this and am so glad you added it to the 55 mix. Thank you.

      Thank you. I was afraid to add it. You all are so very talented. I am glad you told me who originated the 55. My maiden name was Hayes. Not a common surname. I’d like to think for myself, that Galen was reading all these 55’s in total amazement at what he had wrought, and that he had a good hearty laugh at this one.

    Ha.. I actually winced a bit thinking about a spruce coming out of my ass… but I know for sure I’m not an angel.

    Maybe she read 50 Shades of Gray one too many times? This was adorably funny.
