Art as a Gift


Wild Woman created by Ellen Wilson of Ella's Edge
My face superimposed on a wolf's. I love it.
There is even an angel in the top right corner.

When friends care enough about your dreams
to create art to support you in your dreaming,
that is when you know
the connections that art makes
transcend all time and distance.
This is when poems reach across borders
to create
a family of friends.


Beach Glee - This is a composite of a few of my photos 
of the path to Chesterman's Beach, merged for me 
into a wonderful piece of art by TUG, 
of the website of the same name. 
Note Pup's face, in the bottom right corner!

for Ella's prompt at Real Toads: to write about a piece of art that means something to you.

With thanks, not just to Ella and Steve, but to everyone who takes the time to read and comment on my poems. Because of your encouragement, I have written two thousand poems since 2010 that would not be in the world without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  9. I haven't read all your poems, but I'd like to say one thing on that topic, if I may? You haven't written 2000 poems because your friends have read them, your friends have read them because you've written them, and you've written them beautifully. Congratulations!

  12. Isn't it wonderful to have friends like you have. I also have several and they have kept me writing. Those pictures of super impressions are great! That takes skill, lots of it and she did wonders.

  16. Create art to support dreaming--so personal, and true. This is love, much enhanced by recognition that the image means more than the seer could ever see.
