I have been picking elderberries today,
 beneath a sky of sun and clouds
thoughts swirling through my head

i see faces i saw last evening and night
hear words that were spoken
there are thoughts and images of love
and war, about a baby that was born in Syria today
about its mother
about insight and insanity... 

and than while zipping the berries from there stems
there's rest, a peaceful mind and colour, nothing but colour
and the wind blowing through my hair

later in the kitchen i see tomorrow's full (blue) moon before i start stirring
and still a little later there is a kind of contentement
and some berries left on the tree for the birds

Drawing challenge/ Little book

(please click to enlarge)

Wonderful, creative Norma came up with this lovely theme but...

i do have to apologize because my little book is not as little as it should be,
 i did some miscalculation with inches and centimeters,
(that very late work hours make me a less attentive observer sometimes)
so if this were the olympics i'm sure i would be disqualified.

Anyway i had a relaxing and fun pause making ' a slightly larger book' (10,5x14cm)
Please take a look at the fairy yellow bug queen, Norma's colourful blog
for some real little books.

Nice weekend to you all
