Mother Earth and her babies

Deep underground Mother Earth leaned on her broom and gazed down at the sleeping babies
She was pleased that they would sleep through the harsh winter days
Which were fill of blizzards and snow storms.
She would wake them when the first warm rays of spring sunlight touched the surface above her
How happy they would be, to go up into the spring meadow and smell the fresh spring air

Cheers Marie

Angel light

To know that you are deeply loved and cherished
To know that you are never alone
To know that there is someone to comfort and care for you
Someone who has the touch of a hand of light behind it
A messenger from the heavens
An Angel , your Angel

Cheers Marie

Mother and child

I have always been interested in children
I have always been interested in Mothers
Mothers are I feel undervalued in today's society
Becoming a Mother is such a wonderful thing
To hold your baby close to your heart
To let it listen to your heart beat
Two hearts beating as one
A gift from the heavens

Cheers Marie

Rainbows - The joy of color

People gaze open-eyed at the rainbow,
But if you look at the rainbow with a little imagination you may see there
Elemental beings.
These elemental beings are full of activity
And they demonstrate their activity in a most remarkable manner.

Rudolf Steiner

I have made a rainbow

Bright Star

"A thing of Beauty is a joy forever"

I have just seen "Bright Star" the movie about the romantic English poet John Keats and his love for Fanny Brawne
I so enjoyed the movie and the clothes and language, that I had to make this picture.
Set in 1818, Fanny is standing in a field of purple and blue flowers.

I have listed it in my Etsy shop

Cheers and "Happy movie going, should you decide to see it " Marie

Mother and Daughter walking together

My daughter has left home
She has gone out into the world
Children must leave their parents and journey on alone
Today I made this picture
I was thinking of my daughter
Here we are together, walking, talking
She has made a wreath for her hair with pink blossom flowers
She has placed some blossoms in my basket, to decorate the dinner table tonight
This will make her Father smile.

Cheers Marie

Together forever
Rocking together
Loving forever.

Winter in America

I live in New Zealand, it is summer time here
I have just turned on the TV and seen
Snow, snow, snow
Cold winter days
Scarfs and winter woollies
Where I live , it might snow once every 10 years
Cheers and "wrap up warm" Marie

Protecting the seeds

In late Autumn all the seeds have fallen deep into Mother Earth
The Gnomes guard and protect them
When the first hint of the warming rays of early Spring's sunlight touches the brown earth
They start to sprout.
At this sign the Gnomes push up the seeds, and lo and behold, we see the first sign of Spring

Spring, spring, hey ho for spring
What a truly wonderful thing is spring.

Cheers Marie

Staint Francis and the Birds

The sun shone down into the forest
Its golden rays created a warm yellow glow around St Francis's halo
He loved to wander in the woods and feed the birds
He always carried some breadcrumbs in his pocket
He loved listening to their sweet bird song
It filled him with joy.

Cheers and happy wanderings, Marie

Guarding the treasure

Deep within Mother Earth
The Gnomes are
Busy guarding all the treasures.
The crystals shine their light out into the darkness, to help light their way
May you be a crystal light to shine out into the darkness, and light someones way.

Light and Love Marie
