A little Snowball Wish (to you)…

A little happy Snowball Wish
around the corner’s edge of time
past spring and summer
though glidingly bringing rhyme

 

 

This is a photo of some of my pet Snowball Shrimp.  The females carry white, round eggs that look like snowballs.   The shrimp in the foreground is carrying fertilized eggs.  The shrimp in the background is carrying eggs that have not been fertilized and are positioned higher up in her body (looking like a saddle); such females are called “Saddled” females.   Happy Holidays!

I will likely not have time, the next few days, to be corresponding with people and/or visiting peoples’ blogs.  My wife, Marla, is (again) having complicated reconstructive shoulder surgery and i’ll be too preoccupied with that; my blogs will continue, as they have been prescheduled (as they usually are).  Marla requires extra help, nutritionally, with enteral tube feedings to her stomach, which she must always have due to complications from a prior neck surgery; most of the nurses in hospitals, believe it or not, are inexperienced with proper enteral tube feeding. 


 

[Eternity is all around us.]

 

Together we
made a smiling snowman
who
(in magic, and he is we)
danced around

And when he melts
to those very last
drops

(of who we are)
he’ll be back again some day
