By the sea
hues find me with eagerness
filling in the blanks with drops
captured image on cotton of white,
creation of beauty
sweeping me away
the boundaries I try to stay within.
Tie-dye shell of my hearts whimsy
I close my eyes and see the scene
a hundred souls running towards the sea
free from the shell
bliss in being alive,
we swim into the unknown
taking chances and learning with each stroke
how to swim in waves of colors unknown.
I hear the sound of waves from memory,
sweeping me over their frothy waves
and carrying me towards the setting sun
low on horizon
the internal compass knows the way
as I follow the stars
as I may.
My last art class for now, a sea turtle with an amazing group of women and although I do need a bit of touch up on the eye where the splatter got a bit too close (had to rush to work and should have taken the extra minute of care) I am quite happy with this almost finished product and thought I’d share. Happy turtles make me smile 🙂 peace and blessings, K
