No Time for Art

Art Studio in my home

Ready and Waiting

Yet, the chair sits empty

The Art Studio

Word Lune

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 😊

A Winter’s Delight

Ornamental Cabbage and Kale In Winter coved by raindrops

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

Squirrel Saga Continues

Squirrel in bird feeder eating seeds

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

Narrative/Rhyme

To Be Continued….I imagine

Nature’s Live Performance

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.

A nature

Convene

Live!

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!

Hibernation Thoughts

Sky sunset, dark clouds

Quickly

Moving

Like a river

January

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.

Been part of many dramas
