Pink Moon and Me

Some things don’t need a lot of explanations; but my feverish need to complete this art piece became all too clear after we watched the ten o’clock news and found out tonight was the full “Pink moon”. Yeah, so I’m a Cancer. Like I said, it explains a lot about the last few days.

Welcome to today’s rainbow moment. 😏

Random wall rainbow. I should have noted the sign…

I couldn’t stop ‘tweaking’ but this is pretty much the final piece.

Tonight’s full pink moon but I was about an hour late for the color event.

I just had to get these two ladies together

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Don’t let this one pull your strings too tightly. 😉💕

PS I named the piece Midnight Flight of the Faeries. Guess I may change it to Pink Flight at Midnight. 😊

”Why not?” she insisted.

“It’s still too cold.” he replied sleepily.

“It’s just brisk. Besides, he’s coming and he’s never late.”

”Sometimes he brings friends. It’s too cold to be wet.”

”I don’t care. I like to gamble. Our days are numbered and I want to enjoy them! I’m ready!

Besides, can’t let Peony show us up.”

“But..

Okay, okay, I think we’re ready.

”Is everybody ready? Okay, faces up. Look bright. It’s time to be the best yellow we can be!”

“No,”  whispered Ochre.

“He is the grandest yellow of all. Thank you for making us rise and reminding me why.”

Doors to Imagination

I thoroughly love spending time near the Atlanta BeltLine, so was not disappointed when last week’s work event was held near one of the best areas of it. It was the finale to a vision fundraiser ending with a walk on the BeltLine. I had planned ahead because I had a special little gift for someone who lives there, though we have never met.

Oh! And I did make some new friends! 😀

 

Oh…what? Yes! My tiny friend and my little gift. I adore the #tinydoors folks and made a special gift to leave for them at my favorite door.

 

And here is one other for you. This one is so unreachable I have no idea how any one but a real faerie could have put it there!

 

 

We had a nice walk down the BeltLine where local artists share a myriad of eclectic designs and grafitti. Hubby spotted this one and we had to get a closer look…

Eeeek!! We need to close that door! Pronto! 😱

What better way to cool off than with a tasty fresh made popsicle from Atlanta’s own #Kingofpops  and if you want an adult version, they make them in their shops. Such imagination and yumminess all in one.  For our event I chose an Orange Cream Pop.

 

 

This is our group photo. It was a gorgeous day.

Don’t Kill the Fairies!

“Every time a child says it doesn’t believe in fairies, a fairy falls down dead,” said Peter Pan.

Do you believe?

Since the beautiful Samara showers began in early Spring, I have had faeries on my mind, invading my thoughts and stirring my soul.

49CE5AE9-C710-478F-B8C3-12312126E675

 

With childish glee

and fancy flight

They dot the sky

to night’s delight.

 

DEF7ADD5-EABE-49F3-89E2-B3CD1648F2AC

 

Like tinkling bells

their laughter rings,

they whirl and twirl

on gossamer wings!

“Do you believe,”

she whispers low.

”Can you follow me

where’er I go?

(Come, Come!”)

A blink, and gone,

she out of sight,

a spiral string

of twinkling light

winds its way to

heaven,

as there I stand

mouth agape, eyes wide,

my faerie soul swelling with pride.

Would that I, my wings would sprout,

and arms spread wide thus leap and shout

to leave this terra far below and rise to join celestial glow.

(Please, please don’t kill the faeries. Quick, clap your hands together three times!)

The Understudy

Behind the curtain,

beneath the lights

and hidden safely

out of sight

 

IMG_4399-photo-full

 

she waits.

 

Recites her lines

with sheer perfection,

the moves and words,

her grand reflection

 

IMG_4411-photo-full

 

of heart’s desire.

 

Her role it seems

fell short of dreams,

though happy she

tenaciously

IMG_4415-photo-full

 

supports the cast.

 

They who shine

and intertwine

creating magic,

tender, tragic…

 

IMG_4439-photo

’till bright stars fall!

 

The, blossoming,

she takes the stage,

her book of life

thus turns a page-

IMG_4406-photo-full

 

she is newborn!

 

Glowing, growing

rave review

her dreams it seems

all coming true.

 

She climbs the heights

to light the nights…

 

IMG_4409-photo-full

as they who climb

are marking time,

taking their marks

like hungry sharks

they circle

and wait,

thus the fate

of

The Understudy.
