Ready and Waiting
Yet, the chair sits empty
The Art Studio
This year I took up learning to draw and started with a draw-a-day challenge on Instagram. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot and was getting better day by day(I thought) but I wanted a dedicated space to draw and paint where I could leave my supplies out and handy. ( I had been using my dining room table and shuffling supplies back and forth which was inconvenient. So, I was able to turn a spare bedroom into my Art Studio and I was so happy and excited! But since that time life happenings have somehow kept me away from having time to draw, hence the poem…. I do hope to get back at it soon though 😊
Cabbages and Kale
Wear Ruffles and Pearls
In the land of kings
They dance til dawn
While sparrows watch
And nightingale sings
Their splendor soon fades
As warm breezes kiss
And sunshine brings
The end of Winter’s ball
And thus herald in
Sights which are Spring’s

Mr. Gray Squirrel is back today
Eating from the feeder like it’s okay
“You’re a funny looking bird” I say
My comment causes him no dismay
“Mighty fine sunflower seeds” says he
“Quite worth my trip down the tree”
“Ah yes, but not meant for you” says me
With a smile and nod, away he does flee
To Be Continued….I imagine
A foraging army boldly flew
Into my area of wet green,
Peaking the interest of one
Gray squirrel long and lean,
Who romped about
And in between.
I happened to be in the right place at the right time today as a flock of Chickadees flew into my yard at the same time the gray squirrel was visiting! Camera in hand, I was fortunate to be able to video the complete show!
Like a river
Days swiftly flowing
Into cold, damp, dark nights
Causing man and beast a chill
As they wish for the breath of Spring
To blow across the land once again
Bringing with it longer days and new life.
Seven years of being a Teen.
I’ve seen the changes,
Been part of many dramas
Teen years often bring.
Prayed that she would find herself.
Been there through all the
Tears, smiles, anger and hugs.
Glad to have played a part.
My oldest grand-daughter turned 19 today!
She is a such sweet, loving girl who is growing up to be a fine young women. I am very proud of her!
