Hope

Kristen's Flowers, age 13


Hope is a magic word,


curled up in the bud of every flower,

kissed on the roseblushed clouds of dawn,

sprayed sterling across the stars of the deep night sky..


may we each imbibe,

the grace of hope..




~ in memory of Inga ~

Sept 1967 - Jan 2011



my dear friend, never cease to hold my hand..

    2. A note to clarify - though both my daughter and my son are wonderful artists, this one is not theirs, rather a good friend of theirs, and the daughter of my dear friend Inga in who's memory I wrote this post. Inga's daughter painted this for a school fundraiser and I had the winning bid - I thought as she was the artist is was most suitable for the post, Hope, inspired by and in memory of her mom who guides us from the other side.

  14. I like the delicate touch with the watercolors which reflects your endearing words. I am sure you both miss her and together made a lovely tribute.

  15. I agree with the delicate colors of your watercolors. It is so beautiful and indeed fits well with the poem. A true artist can do that.
