I've always been drawn to the moon. I remember riding in the car at night as a child, lying in the back seat gazing at the moon as the wheels spun down the dark roads. Even as it ducked behind trees, clouds and houses, it stayed faithful and followed along. The moon played with my imagination and it's a place I find comfort still.

becomes what it is
Inching in sunlight
dotted with shadows
I grow petals.
I wrote this poem many years ago to reflect the inner growth and potential in all of us. I hope all of you blossom, even amidst the shadows. This is posted in response to Illustration Friday. This week's prompt is "Poem".

bow, starboard, port
stay sail, main sail, jib sheet,
This needs a little background to appreciate it. Tuesday evenings (May-Oct) on Lake Union is the Duck Dodge Race. I've never participated, but I get the impression these boats are racing around trying to NOT run over the little rubber ducks (and anything else that might be in its way, like a kayaker) to win the race. Of course, with the lovely summer weather we experience here, these sailors are doing more than racing, I'm quite sure.

Discovery for me can expand into such a depth as far-off galaxies and yet, self-discovery can also take us to places of great depth. This is a piece I created when I started playing around with the brush library in Illustrator. I see it as an "outer space" piece.

weeks high in a tree
you spent waiting to use your wings
and sharp talons
I would see this bird high in a large tree for weeks during the spring on my walks along the river. When one day it actually took flight, diving into the river with those extremely sharp talons. I don't think it caught anything, but it was a joy to see it take flight and survive (I saw it again after that), but it's been months and I haven't seen it. At first I thought it was an eagle or hawk, but upon further investigation I think this is an Osprey Fledgling.
