I spot her from afar. She is as beautiful as yesterday long ago carrying herself in poise and elegance. I am so eager to greet her ignoring how time faded her colours. Will she blush for me, her monochrome admirer?
Last night you swam freely in the ocean Rode alongside the dolphins Unafraid of the jelly fish I wanted to join you to venture into the deep My body was reality bound A child longed for freedom through the aquarium glass
This morning I strolled along the beach Looked for the remnant of the past No sign of dolphains, nor jelly fish Only a sail boat on the edge of the horizon I wondered if you caught my message bottle
I accepted a challenge to sketch a fellow blogger (The V Pub – Friends without Borders) based on one of his recent posts. The photo I was based on is one of the four photos. There are other bloggers sketched or painted based on the other three photos. So I took the challenge to sketch the one which has not been worked on.
Visual art is not my thing due to lack of training, skill or practice. I love colouring which is like therapy for me. So I consulted my painter friend. She gave me some tips on how to sketch facial features. I also asked her for some tips on sketching the penis. My ten year old overheard my video call with my friend. He came running in right after I shut off the video call. He enthusiastically demonstrated on paper how to draw a penis. I guess he practiced that at school fair a bit. Boys!
