Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

These are my latest work...I was finally inspired to create them, it didn't take long, perhaps four hours.

Forget about canned food, this is the season for some good organic, hearty soup. I was able to make my own fresh spices to give it a kick, this below was the result,it took me less than 30 minutes to prepare. When you keep it simple, that's when it taste the best...

The ingredients were:

turkey pieces
chicken stock (low sodium)
lemon juice
chilli powder

The sunset is your skin...
I drink in the warmness using archived lips
My journal you open with bruised eyes
Trace my dreams and hope with pastels
You are the sweetest colors I want to lick forever
On a plate I will savor you with my fingers

The sunrise bones me up for the day -

I am eaten by the cold crisp lips of morning, and ...

I swallowed your journal - sorry, I was hungry. But it tasted so good.

Pastels I can use to fill in your dreams but I must use indelible magic markers to outline your hopes.

Lick me if you want to, that's just a part of the savioring - did I mean savoring? You decide.

Point a finger.

the works are too good -- if i start describing my appreciation for painting it will never stop --

yours has it all, i should say..

soup or canned --doesn't matter much, BUT the organic heart soup looks HEALTHY to have..

You are sensuous with your verse, i feel being carried away :-)

love, you for the post

These two drawings tell a story. The young person is quiet and the couple is happy in their surrounding
This soup seems quite naturally vitaminized. It must bee at the same time healthy and yummy
(Thank you for visiting me from Stephen’s blog)

Oh man, your back at it! Painting and sharing your yummy meals! I love this :) Nice work. I dig how organic your paintings are, very much like your food and words.

Have a lovely week!

Always a joy to visit and read your words and music. You even write the ingredients like poetry!

Both your paintings here have a natural ease.

And how many plates with abstracted remains like this have I created in my life?
