Tree Elf


glancing outside
I spied
an 
elf boy at the base of a tree

reached for my binoculars.....
but he wasn't there
~

maybe the tree bent down and picked him up

taking ones eyes away to reach for a camera or binoculars 
is always to take risk of missing out on the sighting
~
still, it was a joy to see him

  3. I love this :) It's true, I've carefully glimpsed away for a few seconds to get my camera...then the magic is gone...but are always in my memories. Lovely drawing!! :)

    1. It has happened to me so many times. I think that magic if it is willing to reveal itself to us, then it requires our full heart presence. If we take it away, for even a moment, or thought, it wanders off.

  4. Maybe the tree did bend down to pick him up -- or maybe he was a fairy in disguise and flew away! This is just lovely. A story waiting to happen!

    1. Yes, maybe the tree did bend down, I should have looked up.

  5. There is a special light in this miraculous drawing.high tree, high mountains, deep desire of the elf-boy. Somehow he is caught in his desire and dream and does not realize the way, well and flowers into the high mountains.

    1. I like that, maybe he is part of the tree, the part that can slide out and walk around. Maybe trees do not always live in one spot ;-)

  10. Aaaaaaaaahhhhh! Here is your mysterious boy! Oh yes, he DOES look like he is asking the tree to pick him up. I love the thought of the tree doing just that. In fact, all the trees, the boy, and the mountain all seem to be saying, "Up!" The colors in this one are wonderfully vibrant and cheery. I adore this!

  11. So sweet. I love the painting. Good reminder to stay in the moment! I have to remind myself during travels to not live through a lens!
    Happy (belated) Earth Day!
