My daughter had time off from work-we ran around gathering and purchasing more college supplies. My potential art room is filled with Rubbermaid bins, bedding, towels and supplies. I feel like I am on a marathon of feelings. They circle me daily and remind me of what is to come. I bend, fold and tuck away my ideas for later, except for one idea I am working on. It is reflective of the 'birds of a feather' idea.
Okay, here is my Happy update. I can't imagine how odd my photos will be when my daughter is gone and I have one foot in the past and the other in the future.
-July 4th was about family, but seeing my Orange Nasturtiums bloom in a sea of red-made me smile.
(This could inspire a poem)
Two years ago, we planted some grapes, I love seeing these clusters of sweetness gather-I bet they are sour.
One cluster has a blush of purple and mauve-soon, I will try one soon. -July 5th
I gathered these finds for my daughter to take to college. I am smitten with the baby Honey bear and the idea of Novel Tea. "Read 'em and steep!"
I love seeing these tiny Hens and Chickens growing in my Strawberry pot. -July 7th
Over in the Garden, Michael aka Grapeling inspired us with a Get Listed poem. We are asked to write a poem using three words from his list.
fresh, burst, defy, chain, struck, forward, exchange, customary, prefer, close
***Grapeling's gorgeous photo***
art in heaven whispers
planted in dreams
writhing n' rippling
air squeezed out
why am I chained?
fresh eyed Susan waves
her open arms remind me
my stubby walk-once a skinny pig
her eyes swaying among
Soon, my orange sails will
as silver fluff nears
I make a wish:
hover above fair Susan
her golden dress sways
as we dance in our
mysterious square of blue.
Tomorrow I will share three more photos-then I will be back on track!
I love the idea of searching for happy.
