I Am -Self Portrait

Leona-name Art
Alphabet Art by Leona J. Atkinson

I am my mother’s face in the mirror,

As I speak her favorite quotes

To myself, that “This Too Shall Pass”.

I am dad’s voice echoing,

“Don’t Forget, Smell The Flowers”.

I am God’s Spirit,

Reflecting Him

To the world,

At this

Time.

Inspired to Inspire

Hand Painted Inspirational Rocks

Just a few small stones

And a little bit of time

Can brighten the day,

Create some happiness

For me to share with others

Tanka

I enjoyed painting some more inspirational rocks today to share near the path.

Many that I’d created last week were taken by those that passed by so I needed to replenish the area.

I am happy to see they are brightening people’s day.

My Goal

Chipmunk gathering acorns in the Fall
Original art by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Gathering

My mind

Always open

As I go about my day

To gather information for

Sharing

With others

Sifting out the negative it

Stores tidbits to encourage

Help and inspire

Your day

Butterfly Cinquain

It is my goal and hope that I can do this daily, and that is why I write poetry and create art.

Thank you for following my blog.

I hope my daily posts accomplish my goal and that in some way you are uplifted them.

Trash to Treasure

Trash to me

Treasure to her

Just made neighbor’s day

And mine so much better by

Sharing

Cinquain

Spring cleaning reveals un-wanted items in my closet that become just the thing my neighbor needs.

One Step at a Time

Steps, feet climbing steps

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true

Life is taking on different tone

Stepping out of my comfort zone

I’m out sharing, not sitting alone

Lots to see, lots to do

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true
