ABC Wednesday - U!



And, yes, U is for Unicycle!



And after riding that for awhile you might be ready to play with a Unicorn!



By now you're probably be ready to relax on a comfy, newly Upholstered chair!


And the perfect words written by Ugich Konitari just for today!
Beautifully beige,
the fibers
stretched
to the full
in accomodation,
taking a deep breath,
Ms Chair nudges
the cushion,
itself
just recovered
from a Sylvian clutch,
as the lady sat,
feet on the
beige stool
tapping in beat
to
the Symphony.

"I thought
she'd never get up"
said Ms Chair
as she
looked piteously
at the stool
half hidden
by the shawl.
"The new fibres
are young,
and I need to
breathe a bit"

They
didnt notice
Mojo,
quietly listening,
behind the chair,
waiting for Sylvia
to return
with her
cup of coffee....

Glad you got Mclinky to work; I wonder if it was an extra space in the code.

My daughter has three unicorns (stuffed - upholstered?)
i don't DO unicycles, but I DO do upholstered chairs.

YES!

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team (of which you are a valued part), THANK YOU!

Yes, that WAS fun! I haven't even started my post yet, but do check later!

Reader Wil said...

I love unicorns and cycling too, but on a unicycle?? That is too much for a bicyclist. Your chair looks very inviting!

Your header is really a piece of art!

photowannabe said...

Me on a unicycle would be the ultimate in catastrophy!!
Delightful post and your friend made an awesome header for you.

Jayne said...

Oh that chair looks inviting! :)

Hi Sylvia la foto n.1 e la 3 mi sono piaciute tantissimo !!!
Buona giornata in completo relax !!
Ciao Myriam

Amy said...

YES Sylvia, YES! The poem offering was spectacular, as is the chair!

Quilly said...

My step-brother used to ride a unicycle just about everywhere he went. I tried and tried and finally got tired of bouncing off the lawn. I guess I am not well-balanced. ;)

I love that chair and the poem you wrote to go with!

Manang Kim said...

Beautiful chair!!


ABC Wednesday~U

Mara said...

Yes! That upholstered chair looks so comfy, especially with that footstool in front of it. I could sit in it with a glass of wine (I promise I won't spill) and read a good book.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Yes, yes, yes - brilliant poem, could imagine it all. Love the unicycle and the unicorn. A x

Thom said...

I tried to ride a unicycle once...NEVER AGAIN LOL These are all wonderful. That's a beautiful chair my friend. And the poem is excellent. Have a wonderful day :)

EG Wow said...

YES!

marginalia said...

That chair looks so inviting and the unicycle is a lure, but I expect I'd simply fall to the right or left.

Enjoyed your words.

Jay said...

Oh, that was great fun!

We saw a man with a unicycle in our park in January. He'd had it for Christmas and was practising, in the snow and ice!!! We've never seen him again! LOL!

Jama said...

That is a very lovely chair, looks so comfy!

Rinkly Rimes said...

The bike? Too exhausting! The unicorn? Too unreal! But the sofa plus the poetry, exactly right!

SandyCarlson said...

I enjoyed the poem, and I sure do like that chair. The perfect spot for a lovely lady like you!

Melissa B. said...

My nephew is an avid uni-cyclist. Love this!

magiceye said...

yes!

lovely takes on the theme!

Life with Kaishon said...

Your posts are always so fun! I saw a unicycle rider the other day in the city and I couldn't work up the nerve to ask for a picture. I wish I would have!

Tumblewords: said...

Yes and Yes! Terrific header - and the poem is perfect - as always, the photos are delightful.

Hildred and Charles said...

Wonderful header and I loved your choices for U - fascinated with Unicycles, but think I am past the best shelf date for riding one! Nice poem, too.

Linda Reeder said...

Yes! Utterly!

Stan Ski said...

What a coincidence - two of my favourite pastimes:
Sitting down in a comfy chair;
Watching TV... :)

Paula Scott said...

YES! And, utterly relaxing!

Is that really YOUR chair? And, I love the header that your friend from India made for you. I'll have to go it out.

Gayle said...

Why is it that riding a unicycle only LOOKS easy. Wish I could do it!

Gattina said...

I wished I once could ride on such a bike, lol ! Fortunately we don't have horses with horns yet :)!

me ra said...

Wow its a lovely read....I enjoyed your writings...

jabblog said...

When my son was at school one of his friends used regularly to ride a unicycle. Such wonderful balance . . .
I'd love to believe that Unicorns exist, like mermaids and fairies - Unfortunately they are Unlikely to be Unearthed other than in story books ;-/

♣☆♥Willa♥☆♣ said...

UNICYCLE will be fun to ride for sure.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Unbelievable!
Great header, very unique.
Riding a unicycle has always been one of life's amazing things to me.

*♥Shydub♥* said...

Wow you are good to ride that Unicycle. I like unicorn.

I've been sitting for two months on a painful couch because I have a broken leg- if someone would just buy me that chair, I'd never grump again (about the couch that is) *grin. and I know another blogger who has a cat named Mojo! how fabulous.
I like your Unobtrusive (yay me) background music.

Lisa said...

Absolutely YES! If I tried to ride a unicycle, I'd need more than a comfy chair...probably a hospital bed! The poem is a lovely end to the post, coffee or no coffee!

Anna said...

Yes, yes, yes!!! That was fun! Great choice of U-words!
Best wishes,
Anna
