Invitation for D.C. challenge: Swoon

take flight

she wanted to fly to the heavens
maybe sit on the moon
be with the stars that twinkle in the sky
laugh with the heavens and swoon

yet it was not time for that flight
the rooted trees held firm to her
the task was set
open to the earthly plane
allow it to permeate her soul

I am the host for drawing challenge this weekend
and invite you to join us 
October 4th and 5th
to share anything that is inspired by the word 
and it's meaning:


with the piece above i use swoon; to admire, be ecstatic
still there are more meanings
i look forward to your sharing
whether it be food, photography, art of some sort
writing, it is up to you

please let me know in the comments if you would like to join in
so that i can add you in the links come this Friday

I would so enjoy your company!

Thank you Ariane of Rose for organizing our 
Drawing Challenges!


  1. I am working on a piece that may be right for the theme, although, I'm not sure if it really fits as 'swoon' is a challenging word. I suppose anything joyful fits swoon. I guess count me in for now.

    & your drawing is wonderful, it certainly makes me happy.

    hope you have a sweet day.

    1. hi Lissa,

      i think you might be right about swoon being challenging
      but then again sometimes a desert is put in front of a person and they swoon

      i was thinking of taking flight, escape
      i let this piece, words and sketch pick the word
      for this woman does want to flee to the moon, escape feelings on earth
      instead of focusing on the escape i chose what she wanted: to Swoon with the moon and heavens

      please interpret swoon loosely if you wish

      so glad you will be joining us.
      wishing you a lovely week.

  2. Oh, I LOVE this! This just fills my eyes--how magical and creative. There's a dance between mankind and the earth--we are to be good stewards. When we are doing the right things, we dance with nature's and her beauty. :D
