Ces of the Oak Clan

drawn to the oak clan
she drew their likeness
many shapes styles
imbued her lines with quercus pneuma
mighty stance of oak
firmly rooted with earth
branches dancing in heavens

home to those who crawl and fly
nuts that whisper of future life
she drew and drew
until she too
became kin of Quercus

one night I drew the top two leaves
and nuts
then Ces appeared amongst the leaves
i did not go and look at ms. Ces's photo
in order to make it look like her
all the same
I know it is Ces!
Any of you who know Ces and her art
understand this with no explanation.
If not you will gift yourself in a leisurely visit!

i think a wee bit of the bald baby spirit got in here too

recently i participated in a stitched postcard swap

  10. We have several huge (est. over 100 years old) oak trees just outside the house. I've always loved them, and the gnomes that we just KNOW live at their roots.
