August Round Up

Even though August is not yet over, a little over half way, here is a quick creative roundup.

Words have been in short supply due to work commitments (there’s always marking to do when you’re an English teacher) so in the interim, a bit of blackout poetry can fill the creative need.

 

Counting Words. Edging ever so close to the end of this novella. I added a little over 600 words in August (and read hundreds and hundreds more in student essays).

The “blank” canvas.

The finished version of the “blank” canvas. Not totally happy with the results but it was an experiment. Needs more experimenting.

I haven’t drawn in a while and took an afternoon to play around with pencils and pens.

wanted to find out

Zentangle #29 Revelation

Revelation

we sit without
showing ourselves
I don’t really understand
how I can’t see you
you say you had been
in a way
revealing yourself
a clever way 
to get me into bed

Zentangle #28 Eternity Is Short


 

Eternity Is Short

people make an effort 
to create humans
don’t you think
it’s strange to be human?
it’s to be 
through all eternity 
for a short while

Nothing is forgotten

Zentangle #26 Permission

Permission

I believe we’re
allowed to ask
to become a child
of creation
and earth

 

This was written for a colleague who is leaving so it’s not for sale. A little different in the style than normal but similar in style to the raven zentangle.
