This is a drawing based on the picture of a lake with mountains in the background and the crescent moon reflecting into the lake, with a shooting star above the owl. The owl is cut out from another picture and taped on to this picture. It’s one of my favorites, because of the owl, the different levels of shading, and just everything about this picture I love. It represents my love of nature.
From several years ago, before I took care of Buddy or Birdie. (For the story on them, look in my photos and you’ll find their stories). I do wish I could get a pet bird someday….though not one of those singing birds. Something similar to a sparrow or a grackal.
Birds of Song:
Sky, clear and blue,
Mountains, fierce and proud—covered with snow,
Birds of song, sing, sing along!
Fly, fly away—to your home in the mountains—fierce and proud.
Another nature poem written back around 2005.
The Children of Mother Nature:
The mountains stand as giants,
The rivers and streams sing,
The wind whistles,
The trees whip back and forth,
The rain thunders down,
The thunder booms,
The lightning gives a wild light show,
The hills roll here and there,
And Mother Nature speaks to those who will listen through her children.
This was from several years ago. I had an inspiration for another animal poem. I love animals, and the mountain lion is one of my animal totems.
Eyes sharp as an eagle and black as night,
Coat sleek and tawny-colored,
Claws sharp as a dagger,
And fangs deadly sharp,
I prowl the mountains,
Keep to the shadows,
I keep to the night—it is my home,
I live for the beauty of the darkness.
