Another Star

first I see your face
deep inside my mind
pencil goes to the page
spirit starts to shine
who are you
I wonder
feeling who you are
colors then adhere
you are a brightness from another star

I have recently returned from Italia, jet lag still in tact.
I had a lovely visit with my sister and family. 
My niece, Sofia and I would draw at times. This elf man came to life in Italy.
