From my pad to yours♥♥

My heart sat still for a moment…
Amongst the lily pads and blooms…
The water looked so royal blue…
Because the sky above was too…
My friends the bullfrogs sang…
A song about their bogie bayou!!

I danced and danced along the marsh edge…

My toes twisted in the grasses of green…
That kept me from a unfortunate swim…
In the marsh of creatures from my dreams…

Rolled up my paint legs, and sat on a log…
I let my hair fall down my back….
The dragonflies did soon arrive…
For the summer concert…Called…
“The wing dance”!

The buzzing and rustling sounded in my ear…
Made me close my eyes and think I was near
A busy street with much construction…
But silly me, it was only dragonfly reproduction..

A feast upon the mosquito land…
To prevent us becoming stricken…
With unnecessary infection…
And then A FROG jumped UP!!
GULP!!! and it all began again……

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.
