Pretend

The world has been at peace today, Monday. Strangers greeted each other with warm hellos, and traffic flowed congestion-free for the first time ever. Supermarkets opened their doors early with quality goods at their best ever prices, providing exceptional quality to the consumer. These like-for-like prices promoted sales which have never before been seen, and provided a much needed boost to the global economy.

Companies which damage the environment, whether for ‘profit’ or ‘research’ have found themselves subject to a new environmental levy of 75% of their turnover if they do not prove what they do harms the planet in any way. If they prove they harm the planet, their levy increases to 90%. Win win all around apart from those companies that damage the environment.

Warmer temperatures mean more tourism, and the tourism industry is welcoming a sharp increase in numbers due to the current temperatures. Experts advise the numbers will level off, as the environment begins to adjust to legislation changes, but with countries experiencing a boost in income due to the consumer quality sales promotion this will be counter-balanced. This in turn means that more tourists will stay home to explore their home lands and islands, adding a further boost to the local economy.

Bicycle sales are up, and smog levels are down. The air has never been fresher! Open those high-rise windows and smell the freshness!

In other news, schools are saying…

Huh? Snort. Wha???

I – erm – I didn’t fall asleep there. I was pretending…

By The Lullaby Tree

Hush my child, no need to speak
Just close your eyes and do not peek
The Dream Angel cometh with dreams galore
For you to take part in and enjoy

Hush my child, and worry not
As you drift to sleep without a thought
The Dream Angel will see you on your way
Until you awake in a brand new day

Hush my child, drift sound asleep
No time for tears, no need to weep
The Dream Angel will hum the lullaby song
And you will be dreaming before…

Surreal Dreaming

I visited you in my dreams last night
You’d had your hair done in a special way
You wanted to tell me something
But couldn’t think of what to say
You pointed to the garden
Where the pond had overflown
And then I found myself somewhere else
And to be honest I was thrown
You called me to you as the dream began
I climbed the flights of stairs
But as soon as we met up again
The dream simply disappeared

Next time when we meet again
Once more you’ll be someone else
But I’ll know your presence and know it’s you
And may even see your face


 

This One Is Called Vision Keeper

Two posts in one, this one.

My entry for Six Word Saturday.

And my latest Watercolour Month painting.

I’ll leave the six words here. Bit tricky trying to get everything in. Especially with time being of the essence. Again!

Last year, as part of #WorldWatercolorMonth, I created this painting inspired by Sue Dreamwalker:

So this year, I’m doing it again. This time, the watercolour is inspired by Hollis, otherwise known as Visionkeeper, or VK as I call her.

It features a butterfly:

A tiger:

A whale:

Some leaves:

The Moon:

And a lighthouse and a watcher:

So, now to the whole painting:

It took me a couple of hours to complete, and once I started drawing the initial outline the other elements sprang to mind. Animals and people seem to be the main themes for me to paint this year… and it’s all good for me.

Hope you’re having a fabulous Saturday.

Field of Dreams

Look ahead
Enjoy the view
See with clarity
What you want to do
Breathe in deep
Let inspiration flow
Take the first few steps
And away you go
Walk then run
Or leap then fly
Follow your dream
Reach for the sky
