COME TO ME, MY SWEET LOVE
Come to me, my sweet love.
From the heavens above.
I want to spend life with you.
One heart that will beat like two.
Come with me to our secret place.
I cannot wait to see your face.
Our love is honest and true.
Come to me...


Come to me, my sweet love.
From the heavens above.
I want to spend life with you.
One heart that will beat like two.

Come with me to our secret place.
I cannot wait to see your face.
Our love is honest and true.
Come to me from the dark blue.

Ghosts, God and wait for it…

“Ghosts, God and wait for it…” – excerpt, “Now I like the rest of the world have had nightmares and bad dreams but what happened that night…” – spooky fun images & quite a tale from a young age – via @maxpowerbooks1

Maxpower's Blog

The thing that breathes on your neck in the dark, the voice that whispers in the dark and the hand that softly brushes the foot you’ve foolishly left outside the duvet at night, all present intriguing psychological dilemmas for us not dissimilar to some people’s relationship with God.

As a dedicated sceptic, despite my recent encounters with my own night-time visitor, I have always been fascinated by the dark, frightening, creeping thing in the night, the fear that stalks just out of sight, the haunting and the shiver down your spine. I am no psychologist but like most people, I have an understanding that these things are really our own inner fears and insecurities coming to the surface as we fade in and out of sleep…or are they?

Look, I’m a writer and one who particularly enjoys delving into the darker matter of the soul, so perhaps I spend more time considering such…

Smorgasbord Poetry – Water God by Mary Smith

Excerpt “poem is dedicated to her son and a reminder of his childhood” – touching poem via @sgc58

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

I am delighted to welcome Mary Smith today with her poem Water God from her collection Thousands Pass here Every Day. The poem is dedicated to her son and a reminder of his childhood.

WATER GOD
(To David)

Sun-gleam on wet bronze limbs,
seal sleek you slip
into the deepest pool.
From the rocks I watch,
afraid of your fearlessness,
breath held as brown water
closes over you.
Surfacing, you laugh,
a careless toss of your head
scattering miniature rainbows –
my water god of the Otter Pool.

Other children splash,
playing safe
in sun-warmed shallows.
Their mothers silently question
my carelessness of you.
They do not know
how deep the fear,
how powerless
the mother of a deity
who believes he’s indestructible –
my water god of the Otter Pool.

My Lilies on Floral Friday

some fresh beautiful florals via a fellow artist in Europe 🙂

Smiling to life.wordpress

Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants for their flower forms, diversity, extended season of bloom, graceful stature, and reliable disposition. Their bulbs can be planted in spring for bloom the same year, or in fall for bloom the following year. These are my lilies,  now in full bloom, which I planted  indoors in pots. They are showy in bright colours and so very beautiful…

New Bird Image! Black Bird At Central Market

Available in poster, image-only, and vertical cut versions.

The one black bird still hanging around mid-morning after breakfast outside Central Market’s cafe patiently let me position myself around him until I had the perspective I really liked (smiles).

For more bird images like these, including butterflies and small animals, please visit my Birds Butterflies and Critters Gallery on Fine Art America.

There you’ll also find a tiny lizard our four-year old grandson spotted and pointed out to me, plus birds and butterflies that often come visit us in our backyard.

More and more though, I am finding great bird images in the nearby parks my wife and I take our grandson to – though the birds do tend to fly off for a few minutes when he runs to feed them (smiles).

I’ve also formatted several of my bird and butterfly images into book covers, greeting cards, posters, tote bags, and even coffee cups! 🙂

New! Sunrise Sunset Photos From Costa Rica – la Pura Vida!

February 17, 2017

My wife and I had a chance to visit Costa Rica for the first time a few weeks ago, and to say the country is an image bonanza would be an understatement! (smiles)

Not only is the imagery in Costa Rica wonderful, the people are warm and gracious and the food is remarkably preservative free! Be aware though, electricity is expensive (as the first country moves to 100% renewable energy) and the weather is hot – even for a Texas boy like myself 🙂

Finally, a special thank you to our Airbnb hosts, Kellie and Chuck – and their wonderful dogs (smiles). Chuck even rescued me from a ravine near a waterfall! 🙂

The image above, a sunset over the Pacific Ocean, is a few minutes drive down a mountain road to the beach from where we stayed.

My last image below is also a sunset over the Pacific, seen from slightly higher on the road (walking distance) from where we stayed, and the middle image below is the beginning of sunrise from the deck of our private quarters. Amazing experience!

Returning to my sunrise image above, Fine Art America offers many options for my images and other costarica art for sale, including one of my favorite, a sturdy attractive tote bag available in several sizes.

La Casita Playa Hermosa Puntarenas Costa Rica – Sunrise A One

Sunrise from our deck was a wide, high vista, and I found it a pleasure to wake early and catch the 5 a.m. (or so) event.

Being near the equator meant the sunrise and sunset stayed about the same time the whole time we were there. Our host says the times only vary about 15 minutes throughout the whole year!

Being partially up the mountain and yet so near the beach meant I could simply wander up or down the road outside our house and find vantage points strategic for either sunrise or sunset.

This photo is the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean as seen just a few minutes walk from our house. Below is the same image on one of what I think is one of Fine Art America’s most fun products, the carry-all pouch 🙂

January 12, 2017

I’m completing an extended posting of new Austin Texas images on my Austin Gallery at Fine Art America, am seeing a few images “take off” in terms of views more than usual, and wanted to showcase them.

They’re a nice representation of what I enjoy about Austin now more than in the past – vs the bars and restaurants – that’s the city’s parks and in-city trails (smiles).

*

Admittedly, the image at top, posted just a few days ago, is a rarity, as it would be most places – a lovely pastel sky setting on both still waters and tall buildings. It’s one of three taken off the Hike & Bike Trail from differing vantage points along the trail.

Lady Bird Lake’s constant is it’s a changing beauty along all points.

Image applications beyond framed art, greeting cards, and posters are especially strong with these soft colors.

This particular image has, like its related image, been especially fun seen on a shower curtain! 🙂
