Within, a Universe



like a faceted crystal is my spirit
made of friends from many realms
we blend and flavor our
thoughts
words and deeds
together we are
summer autumn winter
and yes
spring
we breathe bloom
and flower
laugh cry and share
when you meet me
you greet 
our universe
~




I was so surprised how spring like this piece came out, simply because I have been submersed in winter's spirit for so many months. 
Nice to feel in sync with the season.
I sat down to draw the other night, simply wanted to draw a girls face, something familiar, nothing new to learn, something I could be a little mindless with. 
Then all these faces showed up one by one. 
They felt as though they were aspects of the central person. 
Then the poem came.

Wishing one and all a lovely Spring Equinox
for others Autumn Equinox

  16. Incredibly cool Tammie! And that it was unplanned makes it even more fascinating!

    It seems to me all those characters call for their own stories to be told!

  17. What a soft and wonderful piece and poem! I love that these just flowed to you as you were drawing - they look like they all belong to each other!

    So very beautiful! I like the white haired lady in the back - have never thought of doing someone with white hair!
