Over at Creative Every Day, the theme for July is blue.
I decoupaged the paper mache heart you see above and below with scrapbook papers. I can't remember if I've ever done this before. Perhaps as I child. An easy and not very time consuming project.
I sat outside on the fourth of July and wrote these words.
I am blue.
A roller-coaster of emotion.
I look up into the expanse of the sky.
A gentle breeze against soft skin as the clouds.
Down below the water of the land, deep and churning.
Unsure of what I can’t see.
Easy and hard tears flow, cleansing my heart, soul, and mind.
Turquoise and teal. Blue is joyful.
They swim and splash and run and play.
Blue as the rain ruins carefully, constructed plans.
I wait. And wait.
A couch, a soft blanket.
Journal and pen, a book.
A cup of comfort.
Nap. Rest from what my blue eyes have seen.
A cracked robin’s egg in my hand, remnants of a Spring beginning.
One can fly if the choice is made.
