A Poetic Artful Spirit

My latest collage

I have been quite busy preparing for my Art Workshop

Just a day of fun creating with fellow art seekers
here in Virginia Beach!
I have always been the Attendee,
even taught art classes before,
but never have I been the Facilitator!
So I am reaching outward
and giving it a try!
I am so happy to say whether one person signs up
or we have a full house,
I am happy to be in this place,
right here and right now!
I have already learned so much.

You know I love my Art and writing my Poetry
so while creating this collage
the words just kept coming to me.

I began jotting them down as fast as they came
and was able to create this poem
about An Artful Spirit
(a way of living creatively)
so I wanted to share with you today
on my Wednesday Poetry Moment 

An Artful Spirit . . . 

It comes from way down deep inside
a thought, a feeling,
a certain way of living
an art of looking at things around you

An Artful Spirit
creativity inward and outward
a way of interpreting
the way we live our daily lives

Observing, Painting, Creating, Dreaming
Walking through this life
Soulfully stepping . . . 
Intuitively thinking

Being Artful is a
gradually acquired way of living
So grateful to have arrived here,
in this very soulful and heartfelt place.

Have a beautiful rest of your week!
I am headed to Myrtle Beach, SC
for some restful time with my hubby!
Looking forward to refreshing my spirit,
playing with my brand new Canon Rebel T3i!

For next weekend will be my art retreat!
I so wish you all could be there!
