So, I was asked to draw a picture. These are my quick doodles.
I wanted to convey everything being in the distance. For the pic with Grace and me, we are looking outward and the moon is very large. The wind has kicked up, and I’m not good at drawing wind (is anyone?) and so, it supposedly knocked all the leaves off that scrawny scribble of a tree. Mountains in the distance are supposed to be snow-capped.
My son, Johann, since he cut his hair looks like Pewdiepie (Felix Kjellberg) to me. Haha He says it looks nothing like him. But then, I’m not really an artist, and yeah… made his head kind of crooked. Okay, so I am really no artist; thus, doodles.
My son has really beautiful blue/grey eyes, with thick eyelashes, and I was hoping to capture that. He got the best of the Spanish/Welsh genes.
His eyes look brighter now that he says he has a soul mate out there somewhere and so he wants to get better so that he can meet her. That’s why I titled his drawing, “So Far Away.” He’s been doing much better with his OCD and other ailments. It’s a very difficult disease to live with.
Let us hope we all get better in 2021. Healing and hope, depth and no despair. All of these and more, is my blessing for this coming year.
Two halves of a whole
Mates of the soul
Barely making one
And one barely making by
When I first heard her voice
The sound stopped me in place
Not too low
Not too high
Taking me by surprise
When she laughs
When she cries
I want to know why
Simply hearing a sigh or breath
Makes music fill my thoughts
She sings to my soul
And my soul sings pieces
Written like nothing ever heard
Spread across to lands never seen
Oceans and sky growing past horizons
World opens and never enough
Dreams can’t envision the places she takes me to
As I close my eyes and then
Her standing alone
And I am there
When we face one another
Air parts and gravity disappears
I am floating past earth and past life
My soul how it sings
The song she sings just for me
Oh, my soul
In her soul
Happy New Year!
In line with the picture, a beautiful song.
It does seem so far away, but it doesn’t mean its unattainable.
Love you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
