You Just Grew

I didn’t plant you
You just grew
Whispering to me softly
Saying: Look at what is True

Thank you for my blessings
As they flow to me
Heaven is here upon this Earth
If we only look and see

And every seed I’ve planted
Comes right back to me
In unexpected times and places
Showing all that life can be

I was inspired to write this poem today after I found these volunteer lovelies growing out of the gravel behind the back woodpile. I hope you enjoy it.

Wishing everyone a blessed day!

New work in progress - hummingbird

I'm working on a very large, (relatively speaking) hummingbird painting right now. This is 18 x 24 inch, acrylic on canvas.

I'm blessed to have many hummingbirds visit my feeder every day in the summer to early fall. There's one female in particular who sometimes hovers within arms reach of me, seeming quite curious. I love them so much! I want this painting to capture the way they make me feel when I see them, their energy, and the joy they share freely to anyone who cares to stop and look.
