You Have a What!?

When I used to get my haircut, the barber or stylist would often say you have one hell of a cowlick and your hair grows like wildfire. But now as I’m getting older everyday, my cowlick has morphed into just a run-of-the- mill horse turd!

Hey! What’s with you always substituting an ass for a horse!? And a zebra? A squirrel admiring his nuts!?

You sure do need a lot of tender rest!

Stillness Falls!

Stillness falls

memories fade

lost … forgotten dreams.

************

Times of love

times of joy

vivid memories

even schemes.

************

But love was lost

now fleeting times

how hopeless

it all does seem!

************

But when

I see you smile again

my eyes swell

with joyful tears!

************

And the little things

again flood my mind

and quiet my gnawing fears.

************

Yes!

I’m back again

to that magical time

where it all began.

Oh dear!

*************

But ever so quickly

it slips away

and again

stillness and sadness fall.

************

And the memories fade

and the dreams disappear.

And I’m lost again.

I fear!

You! Just Dare to See!

Is this just an ordinary pillow? Or does this silent ‘pillow talk’ in it’s own way?

I’m afraid I won’t be able to learn that language since I suck at art…*sigh*

I really doubt that…travel back to that time and place when you were a child filled with wonder, overflowing with creativity and imagination. It’s still there, stored in a special place for you to access if you strive to see…

I’m still a child, luckily. Maybe one day I’ll look upon this post and remember…

I tried drawing a cat’s head and let’s just say it…hasn’t gone so well.

Well, maybe you’re looking at it the wrong way. What is missing…what do you see…? Add color…add missing detail…add humor…then see…

Many of my drawings are just random scribbles that I then think, “What do I see!?”

An enchanted forest, the Qin Dynasty, a time portal, even a bird in a tree…

In the above ordinary pillow, this is what I did imagine to see!
