poem written by oscarelizondo- thank you my friend for another wonderful collaboration!!

She Loves, She Loves Me Not

For years of yore I have played this game with a sunflower,
Hoping I could romance you with it’s fascinating power.
I’ve pulled the petals and said,”She loves me, she loves me not,”
And when the answer has been negative my stomach is in knots.

Now I’ve become wiser and painted it here to mark the right time,
So that the last petal ends with a yes making it taste not like a sour lime.
Please except this beauty of a flower that has champion my love,
And there will be no ending in “She loves me not,” for heavens above.

Yellow petals with a golden lining and a stem of green and brown,
So that I will be your prince and you my princess with her crown.
My love for you will be represented with this picture of wild emotions,
That will forever live and never fade away with our intended commotions.

Now close your eyes and let me hug you with the aroma taste,
That will appear in your mind and heart without a moments haste.
Allow my gift of a painted sunflower dressed up for a special occasion,
That dignifies the wild moment in my soul of my loving passion.

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    This brings back memories of wild sunflowers, I remember a shirt with a picture of this and this looks just like its made of a material, so soft, gentle, passive, in the form of a peaceful feeling of our hippie days. It toys with the emotion of pulling the petals and saying, she loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not. You do it until you get it right, then you learn how many petals are in the flower, so you can always end up with the she loves, yes, then you smile and dream someday that girl will love you too. Oh, you out did yourself with this wonderful picture, I can ghostly feel the energy in the Love Goddess, and the brillant color you have brought out in the creation of alteration is out of this world. Another hippie moment, from little old me. Did I earn a lolipop this time, yes, woooopieeeeee.!

  • yep,, name your flavor,, this was a wonderful trip too our younger more carefreeing days,, and many a times I picked daisies and played that he loves me he loves me not game.. ohhhhhhhh,, the heart breaks back then,, I am thrilled this painting pleases your eyes,, I can not wait to see my daughters reaction, since she is my sunflower freak,, she has taken every painting or drawing I have done of sunflowers,, see she is my hippie daughter,, lol!! peace and love linmarie

    You are wise beyond your years, how old are you eighteen, oh yea, Hippie, you have been wise to know that the fire breathing dragon has awaken, be bless not to be burnt by his massive powerful fire, there will be more fires, get a fire extinguisher, it will get very hot. This message comes from little old me. he,he, ha, ha, that wasn’t funny, of yes it was, did I hear you fall off your chair.

  • yes it was funny,, and I am laughing my butt off!!!!!!! thanks so much for the fun and sharing,, it means so much to have artistic friends who understand each other, and enjoy each and every individual piece, keep coming at me,, this hippie is ready to rock and roll,, got three bdays this week of grands,, so I am trying to get my hippie self time in before the craziness of grandchildren love..
