Doodling Day

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 )

Save the Coral

Oh so far away

A precious gift is dying

Bleaching is taking

It’s beautiful color

As sediments smother

And chemicals cause harm

Coral Reefs need help

What can we possibly do

To help save the Coral?

YOU MATTER

Original drawing by Leona J. Atkinson 2019

Yes, you are unique! There’s

Only one you in this whole

Universe! Imagine that!

Many might make

Attempts to be like you, but

Try though they might,

They’ll never be you,

Ever! Because you are special!

Remember that!

Acrostic

“You are God’s masterpiece”

Ephesians 2:10

Evicted from the Garden

Victim of beguilement

Embodiment of all living

Acrostic

And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Genesis 3:13

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

CNN Groundhog Day 2019

“Faithful followers, there is no shadow of me and a beautiful spring it shall be,” a member of Phil’s Inner Circle read from the groundhog’s prediction scroll to the cheers and applause from the crowd.

Thousands of people gathered Saturday at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to watch a famous groundhog deliver his highly anticipated forecast.
