Tears and Love

from the depths of his being

he cried into the palms of her hands

washing his face back and forth

purifying his pain in the light she contained

when his spirit quieted

with the utmost care

he placed kisses in each palm

made of love


recently, I won the gift of an original piece of art
an acorn, the nut/seed of an oak tree and I love oak trees.

this is the art of Ces

  7. Hello Yarrow,

    Thank you for taking to heart this post.


  8. Lovely illustration, beautifully matched to the story you've told. So glad you took this turn in the road...

  9. A loving, tender, beautiful poem. So good with the artwork, as well.

  10. Lovely sketch and beautiful words.

  11. Hello miss Anno,

    Thanks for taking a look. It is really fun to have a new form of expression. Plus I share things here that I don't feel suit my Spirithelpers blog. Fun and freeing. This illustration did not come easily. And my lady has a much smaller head than the man- whoa is me, ha. So much to learn. But I went with it anyway. I felt the tale was enough to carry it through. Yes, a good road to take, my sense as it will be a long road to travel, which is good in many ways.


    Hi Sandy,

    Thank you for taking this post in!

    Hello Marlene,

    Thank you~

  12. Tammie, this is like a fairy tale! I love seeing your art, you are developing your own style. And thank you for the link to Ces, her art is amazing! blessings...

  13. I want to know more about this moment that you captured incredibly both with words and lines & colors.

    Thank you very much for the kind words but most of all thank you for making me scream yesterday!!!

    Yes! I screamed and it made my husband very nervous. He thought something was wrong. He should know by now that AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! followed by a WHOAAAAAAAAAA!!! is delightful.

    I cannot believe what I saw. OMG! OMG! Naturally, I had to tell Bella. Thank you for the most incredible photographs. I am framing them for my office!

    Tsup! Tsup!!!

  14. Ack! I was number 13. Next time I should leave a comment as Paper Ces! HAHAHAHA!

  15. Rosa,

    my own style, now that is a fun thought. sometimes others can see more clearly than someone looking at their own art.

    these words rose so naturally, powerfully and with so much feeling, then the art came, not as easily!

  16. Dear Ces,
    I am so happy to hear that ice crystals made you scream, they completely have my heart and attention!I thought I remembered you loving them.

    As for this moment I captured... it is inspired by a moment in my life... The poem rose days later and then the art I struggled with... not that talented yet. I was hoping that the words would carry the art through.

    It is something to have ideas... and then to try to express them. I suppose these ideas and vision will encourage me to learn learn learn.

  17. I love this story that goes with the piece, it gives it such meaning. That acorn is really incredible - lucky you!

  18. Brilliant !
    Yes and ces is brilliant too and fun

    Have a great Sunday!

  41. Your poetry, as always touches me. I love watching your progress as an artist. Beauty, beautiful.

  42. Oh Tammie! Tammie! What an incredibly moving poem. The imagery! Wow! It makes my imagination soar as to the who's and why's and what next.

    Your artwork is truly beautiful. There's a lot of serenity emanating from them. I love seeing the beginning sketch and then seeing the full painting that evolved from it. It's fascinating that while some of the faces start out wistful and pensive, many of them end up with a content and almost secretive smile. I love that!


So lovely of you to drop by! I love hearing from you~
