Single Rose

by Michael Woolsey

She stood alone upon the shore
Her head tilted in sorrow.
The single rose she clasped
Was all she had left.
It was a single reminder
Of that lonesome morning.

The calm waves softly sweeped
Passing her with each breath.
A single sunray glimmered
Embracing the rose with warmth.
She stood alone upon the shore
The single rose was all she clasped.

This was just something I wrote for my creative writing class to practice writing lines and turns, and I thought I’d share it with you.

Happy New Year 2014! Year of the Horse!

Happy New Year 2014! Year of the Horse!

2014 is the year of the horse, and in celebration, I drew and colored this. Its called, “Umadoshi 2014!” (Umadoshi is Japanese for year of the horse, roughly translated).

This pic depicts a horse girl, dancing in a mystical forest, a glow with the lights of festive lanterns and joyful wisps. The Scrolls say 2014(left) and Happy New Year (right). The Kanji you see on her earrings, necklace, and lanterns is the Kanji for horse.

I hope you all had a great 2013, and I wish you all an even better 2014!!!
