Paper Birch Tree Eyes








sentinel eyes watch
in stillness never blinking
the chaos of time~

I read somewhere that Paper Birch Trees are a protector of children. Sounds plausible to me since "The Lady of The Woods supposedly lives where there is a grove of these ghostly beauties~

Spurts of White







among spurts of white
nature high lights the landscape
merely to look at~

Becareful What You Wish For

Prickly Pear Cactus... 8" x 10"...Acrylic Paints

I am so tired of gray skies
being buried in a white blanket of snow
the wind howling and stirring up white-outs
I mourn for the warm sun on my face
to throw open my windows and let the fresh air revive my soul
a soft and gentle summer breeze that feels like a tender kiss
I close my eyes and try to imagine my home without ice cycles hanging from it's eaves...
but then I remember hot summer days
cooped up in the house with the air conditioning running 24/7
hot humid air to heavy to breathe
and I am good with the winter snows once again ☃
