living in the wild

a splash of purple whimsy

roaming the prairie

free spirits amongst many

reaching out to be noticed

whimsy 1

Can you see them?

Sometimes true beauty requires a much

closer and deeper look…

a purple beauty

      Thanks 😉 I am trying to distract myself by looking at what is around me. The interesting thing is I am still drawing on metaphors that I wish for, hope for;)

    Very nice! It made me want to leap about. Words that make me feel whimsy and like I want to leap are grand indeed. 🙂 Excellent metaphor. Love the images too.

      Thank you. The vibe is there, I just have to dig it out sometimes. All of these pieces are metaphors really- in what I see, perceive and feel. xxxx

        Yes, ‘[a]ction speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.’

    Couldn’t see them at first but the closer deeper view was well worth the look. Lovely, words and photos. xPenx

    Your connection to dance is evident in your words in this poem too.

      once a dancer, always a dancer…..

        You can take the person out of the dance but not the dancer out of the person.
