Small Hands

I look at these small hands
brilliant hands
hands I thought were big until I
compared –
put them up against the big black sky
forgetting why
I was here.
These small hands
write their way off the page
bleeding rage
sometimes flowers.
Let’s find common ground
inside this black inkwell
with our small hands
holding fast
forgetting why..

Baby, let’s be explorers.

Relief

Posted in Journal Entries by Mandy Joy Poole on 17/08/2014

After a week of 28+ temperatures it was really great to wake up to rain this morning. We’ve had some fires sneak up on us in the Lake Melville area and it’s pretty scary with the heat, lightning, and wind changes. And the smoke is so thick and heavy it made everything feel pretty eery.

On a brighter note, it’s Sunday and today is my creative day. About to start a template or two for this year’s Christmas cards. I know. I woke up in the Christmas spirit for some reason.

Here’s a few snaps from some recent endeavours. I might edit this post later if I concoct a card worthy enough for sharing 😛
