Lately I have been trying to learn how to draw. I have always wanted to but never really took the time to see if I could. So, last month I decided I would.

I bought a Sketch Book and some drawing pencils, found a daily drawing prompt site on Instagram and began my journey!

It has been a delightful, rewarding time each day. I am learning so much, finding hidden talent I didn’t know I had and meeting new friends.

I usually search for “How to Draw” sites or on You Tube that have drawing tutorials.

Today was especially exciting as the Prompt was to draw “Numbers”.

I decided to create something from the Numbers 25 as today is the 25th.

The drawing you see posted above is what resulted! It just amazed me to see where creativity led me today! From the numbers 25 to a Snoopy Top Dog drawing! 😊 I just had to share my excitement!

Sound in the City

Music, performers, singing
For a handful of humanity

Scattered in the big city 

Working hard to reach their goals

The invisible, the unknown

Hearts came together

Dreams came true

Those unheard voices

Tonight 

Spoke

Things of the Heart

curly red hearts

I like red hearts, pink flowers, and chocolate candy.
Lace doilies, cupcakes, and frilly valentines are dandy.
 
But the things I love best are smiles, hugs, and words that inspire.
These are my heart’s true desire.
 
Things said and done that money can’t buy.
A shoulder that’s there when I need to cry,

Or a helping hand to pick me up from a fall,
These are the things I love most of all.
 
Things that are bought can be very nice.
I like little wrapped gifts, and I don’t think twice

About accepting them from family and friends,
For I like the message of love that a little gift sends.
 
Yet, give me your time, talent, and heart’s treasure,
For those are the things I value without measure.
 
Time spent listening to my joys, dreams, or sorrows,
Talent given to make me better tomorrows;

Treasures of your heart, like compassion and care,
Give me any of these, and nothing will compare.
 
For when those things are given, they are most precious you see,
Because they are a bit of you being deposited into me!

  Happy Valentine’s Day!
