Chatting with my 6 year old child about her birds and art :)

My talented 6 yr old artist. Wanted to draw her friends ‘Sunshine and Lunar’.
I do believe she did a fabulous job and is watching me as I type this.

‘Where are you downloading that Mom?’ ‘Am I allowed to write a comment?’ 

Yes you can chicken!

‘Sunshine and Lunar are my birds. Thank you for saying my drawing is good’

You are welcome Sam – thank you for being patient with your art and not rushing to finish.

Shall we post it now Sam?

Ah – write some more!

What?

How about we write together? 

What do you like about your birds?

They are just cute.

What else?

I like that Lunar goes on my hand when I take her out [her cage] and she sometimes goes on my shoulder. And Sunshine goes on my head sometimes. 

What is your favourite thing about art?

‘Ah, I dunno… that you just – I dunno – get to create stuff and be nice with it, and it just looks nice when you are finished.’

Spaces In Our Minds

One end, toward the other side
This end toward my face
Behind me falls away
The same as all I face

No, time does not move by
Time does not us guide
Time is simply in between
The spaces in our minds~

SERIOUSLY? MAYBE I SHOULD HOLD ON TO THESE AND NOT JUST PUBLISH THEM – BUT I AM TIRED OF DOING THAT… THEY MUST MEET THE WORLD AS THEY ARE BORN INTO IT.

Maybe I should JUST go to sleep seeing as it is now 3 am… but – but… the words come. Ah well – good night I guess. Have a good week world.

O and O……….

Fertile Land – Known and Grown

I can feel your face,
Not touch it with my hands
I can see into your world
And know where you began.
And though there always was
Doubt to hold me down
Your hope and honesty
Swept me to different ground.

Still, I may ne’er see through
The mist between our eyes,
Only hold on, to feel and know
My heart and mind.

I do not know your path
As much as flesh can’t hold,
It’s carved out by your instinct,
And as you stand,
I only know,

I walk beside you
Known and grown
Within the fertile land.

~IW~
