CLOUD WATCHING............

These tall grasses in shades of green. 
A light breeze, whispers in my ear. 
I want to lay my head and watch the clouds roll by,
and let go of every fear.
It is a metaphor of sorts, these clouds.
They change with every hour, 
Shrinking, growing, changing shape, 
as the elements use their power.
Breathe in, breathe out and let the change begin. 
All that really happens here is a painting of the beauty held within.

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? ..........

I see.....
paintings - watercolors and oil paintings, with rich, ornate frames.
I see.....
quilt pieces - a patchwork blend of many colors and textures.
I see.....
sculptures - parts and pieces of things that separately and together, create original pieces within pieces.
I see.....
poetry - visions of colorful words dance through my mind.
I see.....
the simple and ordinary, and the profound complexity of it all. 
I see.....
beauty and art and things I sometimes can't describe.
With eyes wide open, 
I see, really see.
