Mystical Lotus

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”
― Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water

Sketching...

 Playing with pencil and gesso wash ~yay!
 I've been scribbling down words about characters and love the idea of using this image for a Haiku book cover. Just as a little personal treasure, inspiration from a magical muse. 
Work in progress...
 She's not finished, this is the foundation prior to adding colour.
Feels good to be drawing again. 
A little break from editing. :o) 
'Picmonkey' effects
Love and light,

London Town

Streets noisy but silent
bobby doesn’t beat, officers sleep
plastic bag an urban tumbleweed
a flower grows through the cracked pavement

pretty walls adorned, a distraction
reflected in a drunks puddle
give me a fag, got a spare pound,
nothing humble about this town

sirens replace screams
window curtains twitch
but still…
the sun comes out
lawns are mowed
trees bear fruit
flowers are on the table

typing letters forming words
a mish-mash of thoughts on the screen
most will never be seen
a sigh
a sip of tea
a drag on a fag
it isn’t so bad
ponders life while staring up at the sky
a tear drops from the eye
