musings on life, love and laughter from my spoken heart to yours

African Sunset…


The burning heat of the plain rises up creating ripples in the air.

It is hot and humid, like a sauna, causing your breath to catch in your throat.

The grass is dry and stretches almost as far as the horizon, a vast ocean of stubble.

Distant trees silhouetted black against the blazing apricot and cranberry sky.

Voices as old as the history itself whisper across the plain ‘God is here’.

A distant lion roars as the sun sets ending another day in Earth’s womb, Africa.

  3. You drew that?!?!?!

    Because if you did … WOW.

    And the narrative that went with it …agrees with April and Amber….

    That first line…captures the haziness of the chalks … and i love ….love the stratification of the skyscape.


  4. You took me away on an African safari right there! The words and pictures dance around the page drawing me in…into every detail, into every sense…simply Beautuful ❤
