In the dark
On a night so stark
A seedling grew
But who knew
Did you?

In the light
So bright
Grow it might
Or not
And be forgot

This drawing consists of a pattern of white dots on black paper showing a seedling struggling up in the dark. It also represents women trying to emerge into the light from the darkness that threatens to envelope them.

Opposite to the saying about “does a tree in the forest fall if there is no one there to hear” this is the tree that is growing in the dark where nobody sees it, will it have a chance?

Do people suffering depression have a chance to grow into the light? Do the downtrodden have an opportunity to emerge.

Depression is one of the 50 things I deal with each day.
In many a way.

Thanks for coming to look as the thumbnail does not show much detail.

How wonderful to be especially honoured on International Women’s Day as I used to run our local women’s day breakfasts.

Today is International Womens Day – so going with that (sorry chaps) I have selected 12 images from our Ladies for us to admire!

So honoured to have this work included with such wonderful work.

I am life time doodler, who has decided that it is time to see if anyone else likes my art. Here’s hoping!

I have had a go at writing, drawing, painting, graphic design, photography and digital creation & manipulation. Hope you enjoy my work. All encouragement appreciated.

I love helping RB newbies and sharing the hosting of a few groups.

    I just love this, simply wonderful.

  • Ta for your comment. Difficulty with this piece is that it almost disappears in the thumbnail but I don’t want to fiddle with the contrast as it will spoil large pic. A bit of a dilemma

    Beautiful, Kaz!! Love the poem, too. Delightful all the way around!

  • You have made my day, now I can go to bed in a positive frame instead of thinking about missing my child who has returned home after sharing the festive season with us.
    Your thoughtful comment is sooooo appreciated. Hugz
