|Schooners on Cape Ann, MA|
Welcome to our blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and with my assistant, ArtMuse Dog, we explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
The ocean is such a gorgeous part of nature's palette. It never is the same, like life it is in constant movement, ebbing and flowing. Much like the 'days of our lives' the sea can always be viewed with 'new eyes'. With a painting, one needs to step back and let it be. With poetry you also need to let it sit and become what it is. How can all this beauty not enhance your inner spirit if you have the essence to see it. Today, just walking, sitting by the ocean with a friend and Art Muse Dog I could feel my spirit soar.
This post is for Saturday and today we are linked to a poetry blog and a photography blog. Both filled with treasures for the eyes to view and fill your spirit with delight. The blogs to link with are:
Your Sunday Best
The photo above is of the inner harbor of Cape Ann. These two schooners were restored and now offer cruises to the public. They are absolutely a wonderful site to see and travel in the harbor. My haiku poetry with the theme of 'vital' is below:
necessary to living
heart arrests, no air.
illusions lived by
things vital to life
fooling self with stuff.
Maslow's hierarchy needs
living life, actualize.
Hope you enjoy the wonderful poets and photographers that we are linked to today. Wishing you all you need and want.
Hugs and namaste,
We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^
There is a blog hop here at A Creative Harbor every Monday for all creative people of every medium from art, poetry, photography, crafts, needlework, etc. Let's expand the world of creativity and share the journey.
