Knowing Heart for Sunday Sketches


there is a natural knowing
in the heart of a mother
to let love live
in her children
love is passed on to her children
lives on 
in their blood
in their heart
through the knowing
heart of a mother
 ~


I wish everyone a lovely Mother's Day

for everyone
has a mother

I bought some Lyra 'skin tone' pencils. 
I love how different choices of color 
are inspiring in new ways.

I must share with you a mother that I saw in the wilds of Montana last week:

HUGE TREE
Tall Tree

Black bear mama denning in this tree with her two cubs:


Mama, where are you going?
I think I will follow you:

 the little bear did not follow, but any day now.
