Hands and feet

I began a second drawing class. We've been working with a live nude model. I had no clue upon my first day of attendance. I never thought I could draw a nude, or even a live figure at all.

Homework assignment was hands and feet.

Along The Lake

Limpkins dig apple snails
shells picked clean necklace
lake's lush green bodice
turtle heads slip beneath
great blue spears bass
slams it on the ground again
again ducks tip tails at pink sky
orange legs stick above water
two great white egrets land
black legs, pointed yellow beaks
enormous white wings raise
territorial dance around each other
one gives swoops across snagged
alligator thrashing under moon black night

Happy Halloween

orange fruit
round and smooth
sectioned by Mother
Nature's yearly harvest
many purposes abound
jack-o-lantern lights path
treats for costumed tots
pies, breads, cakes yum
baked with love and care
seeds roasted, salted
Happy Halloween
