Dreams

Wandering thru space and time
Distant sunset red

Dreams--Oil Painting--Sunset--Haiku
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson and Bruce L. Reed ©2015

I had an opportunity to write a poem on a canvas that many people had been painting on all day at the “Christmas in Carlton” Festival. The painting was in the booth of Bruce L. Reed, Artist who was displaying his art at the Festival.  He had set up a blank canvas on an easel for people to take a try at painting while visiting his booth.  All were welcome to participate as he said “There are no mistakes in art”.  I declined to paint as I told him I was a writer, not a painter.  He suggested I write a Haiku to put on the painting.  He offered to collaborate and together we came up with the Haiku—his daughter suggested the title to be “Dreams”.  Such a fun day!  Thanks to Bruce L. Reed and Christmas in Carlton for this experience! 🙂
