Little Bird a poem by RestLeSsD

Oh, you, little bird,
I wonder if you’ve even heard,
Your fledgelings have all flown away
It’s time for them to make their way.

To build a home all their own,
To find a mate and perpetuate
Life’s cycled seasons
These are their reasons. . .

She listens just to hear their calls,
Ever searching as evening falls.
Sunrise will bring another day
And memories too will go away. . .

This was her test,
This empty nest
Her work is done
Little bird has done her best. . .

My own photo. Original photograph of a little hummingbird in my backyard. Photo was dark & washed out so I decided to lighten it up & make it a black & white with slight sketching effects on it. It turned into a monotone image. Post-processing in PSCS2 using native & external filters including curves & hue & saturation = High Key.

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…
