Freeflow 1

A
new
tree
growing
proud and
tall, anchored
firmly in the forest
by
its
roots




Bubble__________delicate__________dancing__________rainbow
skyward_________summer_________afternoon_________Fairy Toy






This heart
is the symbol
of love. Red
and big, it will
always say
I love
you





River
noisy, free
flows, tumbles, twists
exciting, frightening, energetic, exhilarating
Ribbon





The hand

big or small
gives and takes
Always
The hand

Olivia said...

Olivia said...

Hey! Cool! I love the tree one! and the heart one and the river! I love the tree shape. Very nice. Great job olivia.

Olivia said...

Thanks Hop-Along-C! The tree is a hit!

It's quite strange looking at things I wrote 16 years ago...how naive...But - I know this would be harder to do now.

Olivia said...

As they say in a poetry session in my country - called a "Sheri" - Wah Wah Wah!

Olivia said...

Welcome Shah Jahan, thank you for your comment. Is a poetry session called a Sheri in your country?

Your profile pic is quite a famous image.

Ali said...

Yup, a poetry session - well not poetry in the sense of poetry. Poetry is actually known as a Ghazil - people who recite a ghazil are known as a shier. I'd like to write it in perso-arabic script, but I dont' want look up the characgters.

Yes, my image is quite famous. It's an amazing image showing the dialogue that the Mughal Empire had with Italian Renaissance artists.
