Mother Nature’s Art Class


Get out your glue sticks, children!

and construction paper

and a pair of nice



baby scissors

Here is a box of 64-color Crayolas

Mmmmm they smell good, don’t they?

Play nice and share . . .

Okay, now throw it all out the window!

Then out we go

into my world . . .



FullSizeRender-1033Gravity’s artful dalliance

with a soft

and thoughtful breeze

perfectly fills our canvas





FullSizeRender-1043Shapes colors and shadows

evoke texture movement emotion

A golden van Gogh landscape

brings the senses home





FullSizeRender-999Colors go POP!

like a Warhol classic

multitudes masking

the uniqueness of one







strobe lights

complements of Sister Sun





FullSizeRender-1036Faces gently blushing

hearts softly flutter

a pastel palette

that does Monet proud





photo 1While naked trunks

and bare arms

grant graceful shading

in all the right places




FullSizeRender-1037Rembrandts of raindrops

on somber blacktop

Golden red brown on black . . .

a bold fashion statement





FullSizeRender-1027Beauty’s dying breath

captured, enraptured

with all the drama

of a da Vinci touch



FullSizeRender-1002Dried out veins

and empty dewdrops

no longer nourish

brittle fronds of lace





FullSizeRender-1026And back to the earth

to Mother’s sweet bosom

our subjects return

for a well-earned rest





FullSizeRender-1017Judgement suspended

as all art is lovely . . .

moving composition

a Matisse masterpiece!

  3. Debbie Jones says:

    Did you take the photos, Carol? Beautiful!

    • Glad you enjoyed, Debbie! And, yes, I took all the photos with my little iPhone 5c. What it lacks in fancy camera abilities, it more than makes up for in always being in my pocket and being quite fancy enough. Hope you are doing well. ((hugs))

  4. Debbie Jones says:

    Love your poetry too.
