A Daily Challenge to myself: a photograph and poetry. As we left for our walk today, I noticed the reflection in our window of the hill across the river– and the hidden cat watching us leave.
I’m hoping in my overwhelmed soul
Like sun sets in a window
With brilliant reflections of the outer world,
So bright the indoors is hidden—
Christmas lights still glowing
Cat watching the world,
Fairy guarding the transparent path—
That the loudness of the horrific chaos
Hides love and caring inside;
That the loving humanity of us
Is still there, within, awaiting gentler times
After the loudness ends.
Poetry / Photography
For my doodle a day with my friends at CLmooc, #jandoodle, with prompts for Spoonflower, a site I share my art to at times, I created an illustration in a pattern for the prompt, “House Plants.” I started with a single idea of three house plants.
Then, I created a pattern with the lavender and some “dots”–
It’s not perfect, but I like it. Perhaps a tea towel for the kitchen.
The Daily Create #tdc3290 today asked us to use Shakespearean insults in a story. But some in CLmooc did not want the insults, but rather compliments— helped by Sarah Honeychurch who found a way to create them. So, I created my “Daily Create 3290” for both using an image in Public Domain. I hope they make sense.
