Recreating Yesterday

Surrounded by visions
yesterday places grace our thoughts
remembering moments spent
a translation of sorts
from one scene to the next,
where the water moves
our souls reside.
Taking time to be
in a moment where sun lies beyond
glass panes of thought
what day was it when we watched
storm clouds slink in
unexpected delight
reflected off of the evening tide,
the salt air gathering us
on Carolina shores
so many years ago
but seems like only yesterday.
Knowing there is no perfection
in life or memories
we strive to become one with our craft,
to dabble when time is gifted
and to feel so very blessed
at lessons learned.

Finally gathered the spirit and time today to somewhat recreate a picture that hangs in our home, Surfside beach South Carolina and a view from the balcony to the sea oats and dunes below. Feels so good to create with color again, having finished a gift (a picture for another post) and just being one with the brush. Having a zen momentπŸ˜‘

  1. ah, I see you found one. I’m getting good at the skies, it’s just the water and waves that allude my hand just so….but that’s what practice is for πŸ™‚ one of those captured moments where I try to recreate, but then just went with what felt right. I’m glad you liked it and thank you for the compliment, I shall take it with a smile and shine brighter today for it πŸ™‚

  2. Lovely poem and painting, Kim. I like the proportions of the painting, and the subtle shifts in color from one phase of earth to the next. There was something “just right” about the whiteness hovering in the center of the sky–the way the “absence” there pulls you in, and the way the rest of the painting works on its behalf, holding it just so. Even the grasses seem to be joined to it. Really beautiful.

    Peace
