My Home Town…


The gulls fly low,

the weather is

cool; the bays are

frothy and the

skies are blue.

High upon the cliffs

Lavender blooms,

framed by dark

greenery; I know

that soon summer

will be doomed.

In town, the people

walk through

cobblestone streets,

going here and there;

jutting into the sky is

a lone church spire.

Shadows emerge from

the eastern sky spreading

across a calm sea; soon

it will bring the night and

set the day free.

The lighthouse begins to

glow it is seen from afar;

then in the sky appears one

lone star; town people walk

here and there, when safe

in their home they will wait

once again for another

Today I wanted to share another painting with my followers and visitors.  My daughter loves the Orca; when she moved into a new home she asks that I paint her a picture for one wall in her den that was home to many of her Orca memorabilia.  The painting below is the results; she has only one child; I instantly thought of “mama and baby” for the theme.
