Just came home from Asheville, North Carolina, where my husband and I spend some time exploring the artful city and I taught a mixed media workshop at Random Arts in Saluda, NC
a beautiful tree of life by my student from Florida.......isn't it grand? I love the color palette......
very cool works in clay from our visit to the River Arts District
The Carl Sandburg home outside of Asheville....the air was lovely....you could just hear the poetry.....
The sea rocks have a green moss.
The pine rocks have red berries.
I have memories of you.
Speak to me of how you miss me.
Tell me the hours go long and slow.
Speak to me of the drag on your heart,
The iron drag of the long days.
I know hours empty as a beggar’s tin cup on a rainy day,
Empty as a soldier’s sleeve with an arm lost.
Speak to me . . .
