Rainman’s Visit

Red rose in bloom with raindrops on petals

Morning reveals an

Overnite visitor

Teardrops on petals

Haven of Rest

Garden bench under the pine trees

Come sit awhile

On the comfy garden bench,

Neath’ the tall pine trees.

Let the sun melt away your cares.

Close your eyes and rest.

Nature’s tranquility

Will refresh your soul,

And you will leave renewed

To face another day of life.

Fill the universe with love

Wherever we wander

Where Am I?

Abstract art

Sometimes wonder

Where I do reside.

Living life daily

In different worlds,

Virtual and real.

Social Media,

News, Televison,

Websites,and books.

Asleep and awake,

I am a sojourner.

Syllabic Verse

Everyday Life

Mixed Media art, flowers, by Leona J. Atkinson

While the world is falling apart

My neighbors and I are building

Relationships, gardens, and ideas

In our little corner of the world

We are making the most of each day

That we have to build friendships and

Create beauty while we can

No not burying our heads in the sand

But focusing on the positive

And ignoring negativity

We live sensibly in unity

Praying, trusting in theLord and doing good

Artist’s Coping Technique

USPS Art Project info

Covered in paper and paste

I walk through a forest of canvas

As I ponder my next step

Lost in the world of art

Deep in pools of paint

I use a brush

To blot out

The daily

News

Nonet

I and many other artists around the USA are getting involved in a creative movement to help support the US Post Office as well as exhibit our creativity through art collaboration.
