Inspiring Imagination

Butterflies flying

Minutes flew by

Busy hands and minds collab

Creating art with grand-daughter

Senryu

Even though outside it was another cloudy, chilly, rainy day, inside my craft room it was sunny, warm and cheerful!

My grand-daughter came over this afternoon to participate in another art collaboration project with me and we had so much fun sharing ideas, chatting and creating. She inspired me, as I did her and we both ended up with projects we were really happy with!

Fun day!

Day Brightener

In art or in life,

I want to be a day brightener,

Make people smile.

Even if I don’t succeed,

I do have fun trying.

Today I enjoyed myself as I created this art piece which I titled “Happy Mail”.

It is an art collaboration project that I and another artist did as part of the USPS Art Project, which is a project many artists across the USA are doing to help fund the struggling US Postal Service.

I think it turned out quite cheerful looking and is something I actually try to live out daily in my life as I interact with people I meet.

March’s Marquee

Yellow and White Crocus blooming

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

As I walk the dreary way

Coming soon” the signs say

Birds sing of a brighter day

Spring color will soon be here

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

Morning Thoughts

What will this day bring?

Birds begin to sing,

What a cheerful sound!

Signs of Spring abound.

Daffodils in bloom,

Chase winter’s gloom.

Winter’s letting go,

My heart’s all aglow!

Garden Graces

Tiny yellow flowers blooming in garden

Cheerful tiny blooms

A scattering of yellow

Birds plant flower seeds

Haiku

Not sure how these pretty little yellow blooms came to be here in my garden, as I didn’t plant them, perhaps the birds carried some seeds and dropped them here. I am not sure if they are weeds or flowers, but I am enjoying the sight of them as they add a bit of color to my otherwise non blooming garden area right now.
