hopeful beach huts

in a quaint little fishing village
beside the turquoise sea
there's a row of hopeful beach huts
like sirens calling me

they speak of tranquil mornings
of sand and shells and sun
a gentle breeze caresses
as dolphins jump in fun

the message of these cabins
is one of hope and peace
a washing of the senses
a soul's most blessed release

my soul will be awakened
when i venture there
love and joy will surround me
i'll be hopefully aware

this new mixed media collage is titled "hopeful beach huts". it is 36" x 18"on solid aspen. it is a tribute to my time on the florida panhandle.

enjoy your weekend! i'm off to have coffee!

i can't say it enough, i love your poems in context with your collages. do you print them and attach to the collage in the back? they're just perfect together. enjoy your coffee and weekend.

thanks, cindy! i really appreciate your kind words and support! i have been attaching the poems to some of my smaller pieces, the ones with the wooden dowel rod easels on the back. this piece is going to hang in my living room. maybe i'll frame the poem next to it. i'm working on some smaller beach hot pieces today.

The poem and the artwork are both fantastic. I love the line "beside the turquoise sea there's a row of hopeful beach huts like sirens calling me."
