Hearts of Silver

Thank you ladies!

The weather has been cool and drizzly and perfect for building, I'm having fun so I'll be adding more pieces to the pile before I show them all, here's a little preview for all of you Rodeo Rosies.

There's a lot of layers to love........trust, respect, selflessness, kindness, and loyalty are just a few that spill from the tip of my brain. I added layers of texture to these gorgeous Royston Turquoise cabs, I think it's ironic, when you turn the hearts upside down you'll see a teardrop.

for the weather.........

A Rainy Morning

A young woman in a wheelchair,
wearing a black nylon poncho spattered with rain,
is pushing herself through the morning.
You have seen how pianists
sometimes bend forward to strike the keys,
then lift their hands, draw back to rest,
then lean again to strike just as the chord fades.
Such is the way this woman
strikes at the wheels, then lifts her long white fingers,
letting them float, then bends again to strike
just as the chair slows, as if into a silence.
So expertly she plays the chords
of this difficult music she has mastered,
her wet face beautiful in its concentration,
while the wind turns the pages of rain.

*Ted Kooser

Have a lovely day all, xoxoRo

    Thank you.

  6. I love that poem ever so much.
    I've been in Bukowski land again, for a while, so it's nice to read something sweet.
    and girl, if i lived out there my turquoise habit would be through the roof. it's bad enough already!!!

  7. Woah, those necklaces are going like hotcakes (heartcakes?)!!! Not at all surprising.

    Amazing metaphors in that poem...

    "while the wind turns the pages of rain"

    ...I've never thought of it like that before, but it's a perfect description. :-)

  8. Ted Kooser lives on the prairie and boy howdy, is the wind turning the pages of rain up here today! He knows exactly what he's talking about. I had to walk through those pages a few times this afternoon, as the wind insisted on turning them faster than I would have preferred.

    An awesome poem for the day, to match the hearts.

  9. Oh gosh Caroline, we only had sprinkles and you and the worms are getting a drowning! Turning the pages of the phonebook!

    I heart you back Deb! xoxo

  12. Your ironic heart pendants are quite wonderful-I'm not surprised they were quickly snapped up!! And a lovely evocative poem. Thanks!

    I enjoyed your Mom's day post very much-Bryce painting, sunflowers, hawk fledgling (he does look comical), a so sweet portrait of Banjo.... How did you spot the nest so high up? xoxo

  13. Hi Priscilla, I've watched that nest for a few years now and found another this year though it's a long hike. I spotted them with nesting material then followed them. Hawk stalking :) The only way to see in either is with a long lens. Half the time I have to check my camera to see what's going on up there since I can't see with my naked eye.
    Ro cam :) xoxox

  14. Hi intrepid Ro cam, I am imagining you hawk stalking with your trusted furry sidekick:) Thanks for the insight:)) xoxo

  15. Ro I love these pieces. They are stunning! Not surprised they already found a loving home :o)

  16. since everyone has said it so well, all i will say is ditto! appreciatively, rae.

  17. Thank you Tess, best wishes as your big day draws near.

    Rae! good to see you, thank you..xoxo
