Fall’s First Frost

Frost on ground and on a flower

Ground is frosty white

Squirrel scurrying for acorns

Hither, thither, yon

God’s Tear Bottle and Book

Teardrop

He catches each tear

Not one escapes His sight

Rest assured saints

He’s kept every teardrop

That you have ever shed

And listed each one

Counted every sorrow

They’re all in His record book

Choka

You keep track of all my sorrows.

    You have collected all my tears in your bottle.

    You have recorded each one in your book.

Psalm 56:8

A Seen Scene

Starry Night

Delights the eye

Was it real

Or just seen

By Van Gogh’s

Artist mind

Syllabic Verse

I have always admired “The Starry Sky” painting by Van Gogh and the interesting history behind it.

Therefore, when I was given the opportunity to try to paint it as a gift for my grand-daughter, I jumped at the chance,however as a beginner in art, and a newby with acrylics, I was challenged indeed!

However, as Van Gogh said: “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. So I gave it a try!

The result was of course no where near as beautiful as Van Gogh’s but I had fun trying and my grand-daughter loved it!
