Death's Stolen Hours

Her hand, held firmly to the fading rose.
Quietly in the privacy of her place of light perfume,
She felt the rain drop from her fingers
To the petal of the crimson bloom:

Death's stolen hours had brashly fooled her.
In so still a night, she had secretly gone.
Her soul did only what it knew, hanged onto life
until the rose simply fell and the lucent tear vanished into the dawn.

Hi Girls, thanks for the heart felt thoughts. I’ve had not too good of a spring and summer this year and I even spent a week in Oakville while my hubby was working at Sheridan Park and thought of calling Blue up along with Sheila and Heather but when ones down and in deep depression one’s friend is solitude where there is no need to put up a front. If I am going to meet with friends I would like to meet them as I normally am…happy.Maybe that will be sometime soon;I hope! Looking forward to blogging and doing some in door work this coming fall and maybe even visiting with you guys....It's been soooo very long!!!!I have spent a lot of quite time this past season and some constructive work and chitter chatter I would happily welcome!!

Old Treasure Hunt Fool
(I dedicate this poem to my wife who, in the fall of 2007, took an Ottawa Radio Station Treasure Hunt just a little too far)

There once was this Italian mother
Who neglected her significant other
She ignored everyone, was no longer fun
Looked only for treasure to uncover

Story goes this was a girl with a dream
To be hunter of treasure supreme
They took her away, there she stays to this day
And keeps saying, “things aren't as they seem”

As time passed she was feeling much better
But her family still wouldn’t come get her
They wrote don’t despair, your better off there
Sent on in an extremely short letter

Time passed by, she turned old and went grey
She wished she could go back to that day
Swears things would differ, the hunt would be stiffer
And the treasure would be hers for the prey

Her family has started over their life
No need for a deadbeat mom and / or wife
Her headstone when chose, the words they’ll compose
They agree to install without strife

Here lies the soul of a women gone crazy
Dirty house and a little bit lazy
The treasure it seems, was just part of her dreams
As her whole life slipped away and turned hazy

If you’re looking for gold, treasure or jewel
For it appears that this would be the rule
The moral would seem, to stay part of the team
And don’t turn into an Old Treasure Hunt Fool

Stan

Starry, originally uploaded by Zsaj.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
