Nature

One of my nature poems written several years ago.

Nature:

The winds of time blow through the land,

The water of ages past rushes along its many rivers and streams,

The oceans and seas rise and fall—they cast their occupants about,

The sun beats down,

The moon glows bright white,

Nature’s people rush here and there for a storm comes on,

And so Mother Destiny intervenes and saves us all.

Me and My Boy, Snip

This was taken a few years ago, shortly before I drove back home. I had been up visiting the Baker’s–Snip’s owners–who live out in the country, about a half-hour or so away from San Antonio for a week and now it was time to go home. I love to take pictures of me and my boy, so that I can have them as a “record of sorts”. Or something to that effect. I just love taking pictures with him. And there are times–like here–where he happily cooperates and so they turn out pretty good. When he cooperates, that means he’s posing. Which he does love to do….pose. This horse can truly pose. 😀

Letting the Sun’s Rays Out

600033_10151041837926584_73842621_nThis drawing is done from the picture of a sun letting out its rays, when it’s behind clouds. My professor asked me how I had done the rays–white lines going in different directions–and I told him I used my eraser. He was impressed. The sunshine with its rays going out is here because I love the sunshine. This is another one of my favorites.

Happy Thanksgiving

582415_10151041837171584_1071234393_nThis “Happy Thanksgiving” drawing is based on a picture from the internet. The “1987” was done on Microsoft Word using WordArt. This is here because I was born in 1987 on Thanksgiving Day.

Jumping Over the Clouds

550681_10151041836746584_1548199790_nThis is a drawing done of Snip to make it look like he’s jumping over the clouds. I cut out a photograph of him rolling on the ground on his back and taped it on here in such a way to make it look like he’s jumping over the clouds. It’s here because I loved the idea of making him look like he’s jumping over the clouds when he reality he’s rolling on his back.
