A Painting, A Poem, and More Pebbles

27 Jan
I love it when beautiful things come my way out of the blue. This poem by Nicolette Sowder and its lovely art work by Lucy Campbell turned up yesterday.
May we raise children
who love the unloved
things – the dandelion, the
worms & spiderlings.
Children who sense
the rose needs the thorn
& run into rainswept days
the same way they
turn towards sun…
And when they’re grown &
someone has to speak for those
who have no voice
may they draw upon that
wilder bond, those days of
tending tender things
and be the ones.
~ Nicolette Sowder
A couple of my dear readers commented on the beautiful and enormous pebbles on Penzance Promenade and I thought that they, and you, might like another picture where a different set of the sculptured pebbles, have been joined by real pebbles and seaweed thrown up by the last crazy storm.

      Thanks! I was pleased in the end as I started the evening think, I haven’t taken any photos today, not been out, lousy weather and then – serendipity! There they were – and alliterative too! 🙂

    The artwork is beautiful, and the poem is exceptional and wouldn’t the world be a better place if that came to fruition. The pebbles are unbelievably beautiful. I’ve never seen anything like that so thanks for sharing.

      They are gorgeous aren’t they? So lovely to come across on our unexpected treat of a walk in Penzance. 🙂

      they really are, such a surprise to come across and so smooth and lovely echoing what the ocean produces. 🙂

    I don’t know why these things don’t turn up at my house. 🙁
    But glad you share your gifts with us. 🙂
