Shades of Black

mixed media collage, 6" x 6"
Magazine clippings, pen drawing, & found word.

Is it the model or the mountain,
the male or the female,
the trees or the clouds,
the drawing or the photograph of ancient metalwork,
the images or the word?

Pebbles in my Journal

Doodling patterns can be soothing...
not sure if these combinations
really work for me...

Sometimes I think we are so busy
thinking of what we are going to say next
that we aren't truly listening
to what is being said...
I am guilty of that.

End-Of-Summer Poem
by Rowena Bastin Bennett
The little songs of summer are all gone today.
The little insect instruments are all packed away;
The bumblebee's snare drum, the grasshopper's guitar,
The katydid's castanets--I wonder where they are.
The bullfrog's banjo, the cricket's violin,
The dragonfly's cello have ceased their merry din.
Oh, where is the orchestra? From harpist down to drummer
They've all disappeared with the passing of the summer.
