Today I finished an art project that I almost really like! This is a first! I got some new 'mulberry' paper, which I'd never seen before and it is very cool to work with, then the bird was made from a Thanksgiving card I got from my daughter, see how the eye is a little bird? I thought that was neat. The hand didn't turn out that well, too many layers, too dimensional, but I learned...
The very best thing about this little art project was that it was inspired by my own latest poem! Another first - how nice is it to be able to inspire yourself?! That never happened before and it definitely feels like turning some kind of 'creative' corner... anyway, I had lot's of fun with all of this...
is that happiness floats
like soap bubbles, so fragile
you don’t dare grab, or grasp, only
put out a finger and hope happiness
chooses to perch there
don’t move, don’t
try to wrap yourself around it,
you mustn’t cling, or clasp, only
open yourself, let it rise into you
like the sun
