Berries of Red

Red Berries Among Red Leaves

Little red berries seen dangling about,

With quite darker branches, they rather stand out…

Along with the leaves, of this red colored tree,

You may find them dancing, tethered yet free…

One day they will tumble, and leave this tree bare,

The better through winter, for this tree to fare…

But here in this moment, enjoy this red view,

And remember it still, when the berries are few.

I hope you are having a great day!

Knight In Shaded…Well, Not Armor, Bliss Maybe?

Chess Piece, Knight

Taking what I have learned about the tools in Medibang Paint and the reading and practice on shading I have been working on lately. I have accomplished this, not completely flat chess piece.

Looking closely you can still see sloppy drawing, inconsistent lighting, and other deficiencies but I was pretty excited about it for being a completely free-hand drawn, free-hand shaded piece of work straight from my mind (I was not looking at a chess piece nor picture of one when this was drawn.) It is clear what it is, which is great for me, especially that it captures a bit of depth vs flat.

Just wanted to share the feeling of making progress! Thanks for reading! I hope you have a great day!

Puff Of White, A Carefree Poem

Dainty, saintly puff of white,

Clinging to the ground,

Winds of change, with all their might,

Blow this seed around,

Color of soft ivory,

Wisps spread everywhere,

Dancing in the revelry,

Of life without a care.


Sometimes letting go and letting the currents of life take you somewhere new is the best course of action.

If you enjoyed this, share it with others 🙂
