for yet another
peaceful and creative long weekend.
I spent so much time writing and creating art.
One early morning, I decided to create a Zendala face.
Recently I had seen one similar on Pinterest
and it caught my attention.
I wanted mine to be different than what I had seen.
I was anxious to try out the Zentangle round tiles.
I first did a watercolor wash with a subtle metallic color,
I then sketched a small face off to the side
and then began zentangling,
I wanted the piece to evolve as it should.
roaring in the background!
The entire time I was working on this project,
a poem was forming in my head
I love how art and writing are intertwined!
I'd like to share it with you . . .
Who is this she I see emerging
slowly making her presence known
every now and then something
new and magical begins to emerge
Life carries with it a pattern to follow
we learn this as a little child
we grow, we seek
and then we become
We continue to walk through our lives
living out day to day moments
childhood growth, teen adventures,
schooling, marriage, children and more
Slowly she continues to emerge
at times being tucked back inside
being told stay put ...
this just isn't your time
So she patiently waits, listens and watches
for the perfect moment to appear
when she knows she is needed and wanted
ready to be fully embraced
Emerging She I like who you are
you have found your true voice now
free from the stresses of what others might think
walking through your life with arms open wide
For you see I am Emerging She
I've lived my life well
now I am changing and tweaking
my life along the way
patient and strong
loving the woman I now have become
I wonder which way she will lead me along?
