New Shop

For those interested, I have begun a little Etsy shop featuring some small watercolors. They have been created in the shape of a heart,so would be suitable for Valentine's Day, but not limited to that. My shop's name is the same as my blog's: Poetry and Wild Roses :-)

I just want to tell you that you are a very valuable person. Don't be discouraged,when people make you feel otherwise. You have something good that's been given you,to offer back as a gift to others...You know deep down in your heart what that is...Don't let the negativity of some ruin what you believe in...Find someone who shares what you believe, and spend time encouraging each other. Your life is of great value. Do not give up on this!

Autumn Leaves

I usually can't resist picking up a few leaves,now and then,during this season...Aren't they lovely?


I have many thoughts about the beautiful gift of Autumn days...Golden days,full of bright colors,enhanced by the special light that the sun casts over field, tree,and flower, this time of the year....

It is a great gift,and needs to be cherished!

Dip in the Sea...

There are pictures to paint,and stories to write...There are books to read, Music to hear, Food to taste...Beauty to behold, Fragrance to inhale, Breezes to feel...Banquets to share, and Dancing to do!

More about the Moon...

"Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come,while stars grew fuller and larger all around them,and a yellow moon,appearing suddenly and silently from nowhere in particular,came to keep them company and listen to their talk..."~From Kenneth Grahame's "Wind and the Willows"~

~This is a story that I find to be quite adorable,and I hope you will forgive me,Christina Martin,for borrowing the quote that you just used on "Soul Aperture"....It is such a charming thought,to me,to think of the moon,as a quiet friend,keeping a small creature company,quietly,while he sits outside,and murmurs on about his dreams...I wanted to pair this thought with my little painting of this large,quiet,glowing moon! Hope it brings you a smile!
