Haiku my Heart Friday

Shadings of grey dust,
Dance across canvas threads.
Life is in all art.

An ethereal child,
created out of charcoal dust,
as, perhaps we all may be.

Pushing and pulling,
lights and darks,
discovering in the end
that creating is the stuff of life.
Created and Creator

oh kathleen your offering embodies the essence of creativity as naturally as breathing in and breathing out.
in bali to create is so interwoven with living there is no word in their language for "art".
i love that and i love you!

Absolutely breathtaking portrait and words. Thanks.

Thought provoking. I love the drawing. My senses fill when imagining the way people put their souls into their art. Fortunate are those that can create what the mind sees.

'We are but charcoal dust', I find this a comforting idea! Love the drawing and the haikus!
