Reflections: Art for Loose Threads

I'm so, so excited to discover It's allowing me to express myself visually with computer generated imagery. It's more limited than playing in Photoshop, but it's so accessible, I find I'm heading over frequently to express ideas and thoughts.

I plan to post my compositions here, maybe for Photo Friday, if I can wait that long. In the meantime, here's today's image, where I was thinking about my first novel Loose Threads. It was fun to rethink it apart from the cover. This is art that reflects my themes in the book. Thanks for looking!

Poetry Friday: Illuminated


Rushing through darkness,
artificial light glows me
up in this moment.

Poetry Friday: Fins


I heart my flippers
that flap, flip, fly through the world
of fluttering fish.

Poetry Friday: Lava


Pulsing, rolling ooze

Poetry Friday: Double Hearts

Double Hearts

One heart willingly
set inside another for
a life together.

I've been in Hawaii celebrating my 25th anniversary with my hubbie! More posts soon.

* I found this rock,
* set it inside a heart-shaped space
* while listening in and dancing to another happy couple's wedding reception music
* as Dave and I watched our first sunset on the the Big Island.

Sweet love.
