Spring Spirit Logo Contest

    This banner design is watercolor acrylic and pen. Teamwork—plant seeds, water, and magic! The contest’s objective was to capture the spirit of spring—hence the title, appropriate for children. I am thankful for this opportunity. #SCBWICANorthCentral #artofscbwica

“Creation”

#TalesNoir prompt word during second week of May–“Creation” “Wet clay oozed between his fingers, spun with the wheel, and dripped onto the slab. Once day, this creation would reveal his name.”

“Shine” Ten Word Story Prompt

“Silver loop, square diamond, watch her eyes sparkle and shine.” Inspired by my fast approaching first anniversary. #hangtenstories

Weekly Poetry Challenge

Recently, I’ve entered a few poetry contests. To my surprise my heart loves it! One challenge was using only one-syllable words keeping under 200 count. My entry may be published in a book this year…Update will follow. The other was a group effort of double-line rhyme on Twitter #poetryst #grouppoetry there wasn’t any theme, two lines each, and assembled together to complete one…

Rosie

We awake, Rosie’s on the chair. Let’s sneak out of bed—she’s following! Run away quick, we squeal and laugh. Rosie floats in silence, trailing her string. We hide around the corner, here she comes! Rosie slowly glides and drifts near. Jump over her—zap, she clings to our socks!   #50PreciousWords Writing Challenge
