If I were...

If I were a month I’d be June

If I were a day I’d be Sunday

If I were a time of day I’d be dawn

If I were a planet I’d be earth

If I were a sea animal I’d be a lobster

If I were a direction I’d be east

If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a Windsor chair

If I were a liquid I’d be water

If I were a gem stone I’d be a diamond

If I were a tree I’d be a sugar maple

If I were a tool I’d be a swiss army knife

If I were a flower I’d be a peony

If I were an element of weather I’d be sunshine

If I were a musical instrument I’d be a piano

If I were a color I'd be white

If I were an emotion I’d be empathy

If I were a fruit I’d be a strawberry

If I were a sound I’d be a whisper

If I were an element I'd be rich, fresh soil

If I were a car I’d be a Beetle

If I were a food I’d be a chocolate chip cookie

If I were a place I’d be a seaside beach

If I were a material I'd be Egyptian cotton

If I were a taste I’d be sweet

If I were a scent I’d be cinnamon

If I were a body part I’d be a hand

If I were a song I’d be a hymn

If I were a bird I'd be a dove

If I were a gift I'd be a bunch of flowers

If I were a city I'd be Nantucket

If I were a door I'd be an old screen door

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be black patent pumps

If I were a poem I would be a haiku

What would you be?  Join in!

  8. MARCY. This is so lovely and just the kind of exercise I need to stretch my writing muscles. I wasn't surprised to see such a beautiful blog when I decided to stroll over and visit, as you'd left such extraordinarily kind words about my last post on dear Sasha. Thank you for leaving a comment even though it was a sad topic......Please come visit again, as I promise happier days {and posts!} ahead. xx P&H

  9. Marcy,
    Good morning. This paints such a lovely picture of the most delightful YOU! I love it.
    I am so glad that you got to meet Frances Palmer.
    Oh I bet she is just wonderful in person. Anyone who loves to garden and create beautiful pottery with her hands has got to be.
    Thank you so much for telling me. This is one of the many things that I love about blogging, is connecting people. It absolutely made my day to know that little ole me was responsible for introducing wonderful YOU to wonderful Frances Palmer!
    Have a great day.
    xo Lisa
