WHAT IT IS

with sunflower seed


What It Is 
by

It is madness
says reason 
It is what it is
says love

It is unhappiness
says calculation 
It is nothing but pain
says fear
It has no future 
says insight
It is what it is 
says love  

It is ridiculous
says pride
It is foolish 
says caution
It is impossible
says experience
It is what it is
says love

  4. I really do love this! It's perfect for the chaos that our world is in. I just said to Bob this morning that I really need to find a way to say it is what it is and mean it and stop fretting over our world

    1. Thank you GGGrandma :) A lot of these kind of photos are a matter of good luck :) Our little bird was gone a split second after I took this photo and off to another tree he flew, to find one of the holes he had made for that sunflower seed. I hear their ratatat-tatting early in the morning. It is sometimes our wake up call, lol!
