Photographs

CEF50B0D-6F20-41F0-B204-97A42961CD53

The beautiful landscape of Switzerland

The dreamy lakes and the majestic mountains

The emerald trees and the lovely pelicans and

The ducks and the geese swimming in groups

Are seen and framed by the eyes of the artist

The right angle is chosen and the right lighting

The artist sees and captures the beauty of

The loan boat on a foggy lake

The row of trees reflected in the water

The yellow widow pane that opens to a lovely field 

The broken glass that tells a tale of sorrow

The homes of the pelicans atop the tall trees

The fiery leaves of the fall

The lone red bench standing in water and

The swans parading on the lake

All subjects are worthy and are turned into art

These photographs belong in studios and magazines

And yet they are taken for our eyes

We are grateful to be exposed to their beauty 

And to be uplifted by them

We are thankful for the eyes and the heart that capture them

And offer them to us as a gift

The writer’s canvas

D5846462-2A7F-40EE-A871-26988B15680C

“A painter paints pictures on canvas

Musicians paint their pictures on silence”

A writer paints her picture on the tablet of the readers’s heart

Words are the paint

Some vibrant

Some subdued

Words are the paint

Sometimes splashed across the page in rage

Sometimes applied with gentleness 

Words are the paint

They create a masterpiece

From ordinary subjects

Words are the paint

The colours endless

Words are the paint

The pictures they paint bubble up

From the soul of the writer and

Mesmerize the observer

Words are the paint

The paining a reflection of the spirit of the writer

The artist

pink flowers 2

The artist
A sensitive soul
Who feels so deeply that
Overcome with emotion
There is no place for her to turn
Expect to her art
To release the emotions
That have gripped her heart

The artist
Someone who translates her pain
Into a beautiful tableau for all to see

The artist
The vessel that allows
Herself to be used
To carry the message of
Beauty and hope
Sadness and disappointment
Wisdom and joy

The artist
Humbled by the gift
She has received
Dedicated to telling the stories
That need to be told

The artist’s work
Essential for the health of the soul
Essential for taking the edge off
The realities of living in this world
