My Mosiac

Me in a mosaic

God has put broken

Bits and pieces of my life

Into a grand mosaic

We shine so bright

His peculiar treasures

Bought by His Son’s sacrifice

Senryu

And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Malachi 3:17 KJV

Doodling Day

Hand drawing with doodling
Hand Doodle Art @LeonasDesigns 2019

Monotone message

Conquering the boredom

Doodling on my hand

Senryu

I joined an art challenge this month on #Instagram called #Sketchtember and today’s prompt was to sketch a hand so I decided to try sketching a 3D hand plus do some doodling on it while I was listening to a lecture on writing poetry for a poetry class I am in.

Thus, the result was this poem and art I am posting today 😊.

?–Have you ever tried #doodling or #sketching as a challenge, or as a way to overcome boredom?

(And…if you are on Instagram–follow me @LeonasDesigns or @LeonasLines )

Just Fiddling Around

Original “Poodle Doodle” by Leona J. Atkinson

Life has surprises

Sometimes we just need

To Doodle a Poodle

Senryu

Today was one of those lazy days for me. It was chilly, windy, rainy outside and that just made me want to stay inside, sit on the couch and draw or read.

I ended up doodling, on my phone, which I don’t often do, but found it quite enjoyable today.

Years ago when my grand-kids were all littles and the four of them we’re having breakfast at my house I invented a game to keep them focused while eating. We all loved to eat toast with jelly in the mornings so I asked them to each come up with a name for the shape of their toast after they took a bite or two out of it. We all came up with some amazing shapes of dogs, cats, people, etc that caused many laughs and memories. It got to be a fun tradition which they remember to this day even though they are all grown up.

So today as I was eating my toast and jelly for breakfast I tried it again just for fun and got a shape which I thought looked like a dog’s head.😊 I snapped a picture and ended up doodling it into a poodle, which I will be sharing with the grand-kids via phone message later today. 😊

You just never know what life will bring you each day!

Today even though it was stormy outside and I was disappointed with the weather because I had wanted to go to Free senior day at the local zoo but didn’t because of the rain, wind and cold, I had a fun day inside creating memories.

Hope you did also! 😊

Thoughts rolling around wildly

Chaos replaces status quo

Apple cart upset

Senryu

“upset the apple cart” meaning: wreck an advantageous project or disturb the status quo.

The use of a cart piled high with apples as a metaphor for a satisfactory but possibly precarious state of affairs is recorded in various expressions from the late 18th century onwards.
