I found this sweet poem by seven year old Sarah. I am guessing she was a patient at Texas Children's Hospital. It caught my eye because I use to write a lot of poetry when I was young and into my teens and early twenties. I think she must have loved pink and this was her sharing it with everyone:

The color pink!
It makes me wink!
I think about it all the time
It's not a lime.
It's pink of course.
Not a horse!
Just pink!

Any writers or poets out there? Come over and share your favorite pink poem. Then check out Beverly and our fabulous pink parade each Saturday. I am grateful Beverly hosts this affair each weekend and I am grateful too for each and everyone of you that shares your pink and the love of it!

Some pink that I love:
Easter peeps and bunnies
Pink bubble gum
Pink flowers
Pink newborn babes with silky sweet soft skin
Pink and rosy cheeks after running in from the cold
Pink puppy noses, cold on your nose!
Pretty pink lip gloss
Sparkling pink drinks!

As a kid during the Easter season stores like F.W. Woolworth sold baby chicks that were dyed pink and other assortment colors of the Easter parade. I longed for one and purchased one with a friend. She betrayed me when my mother caught me with that baby chick and marched me back to Woolworth's to return it for a full refund! I was sad but even as a youngster I realized my mother was right. Whatever would I have done with a live chicken when it was full grown? The moral of my story is Mother knows best!

Come join Pink Saturday today. It is such a fun meme and we enjoy each other's company and you will be able to make some wonderful friends here.

I tip my pink hat and my toasting flute full of pinkness to Beverly and the entire participating Pinkies! I love you each and everyone!
