Draw Me #poetry #art


 

it just takes one line

followed by another

color  then some more added

and a smile or two

give me a long neck

or a furry mane

four long legs or short

will have to do

teach me to draw

show me to paint

clay in my fingers

don’t want to wait

look at the sky

God’s daily design

 something fluffy and blue

that catches our eye

 

 

When you think of art you might say “I can’t draw?” Why?

It’s more a block in between your mind and your hands then you realize.

Children create more easily because they haven’t acquired the “hang up” of success. They just “do.” You are never too old to learn how to draw, paint, sculpt and there is no grade at the end either. So try a creation done by you. You may find that you enjoyed it and want to try another.

All the years I “did” art I was afraid to try portraits. While my artist mother can still teach me I am trying to learn a little about portraiture and practice!

I hope you’ll try something you’ve never tried before.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi Leslie – lovely poem and interestingly enough something that cropped up the other … one good piece of art through my life … the complete block otherwise … it’s in the family … but not at our level … I might be able to draw words into word art .. no more I suspect … but who knows … love the artwork you’ve shown us here – cheers Hilary

  3. Me too! I’m trying to learn a little about portraiture and practice, it’s good to face our fears about art and our ability to do it and DO IT ANYWAY!!…sometimes I blog about it too! 🙂

I can get lost in my paintings, as I add layers of watercolor paints, to give my paintings layers of color, and adding depth and texture.
