patience . at times not my forte . a new chance daily

tea bag simple birds whisper transparent encouragement

as a year long project approaches midway .. the first of July already

curtains are added . bubbles fill the room . rain drums on tin

I sip tea and imagine them into birds . dreaming

who may love a poetic giveaway

happy weekend to you all

happy weekend to you too,
dear one, with a bird
emerging with pa-tience.
loving all your tied string
& paper that cares for us
so tenderly. xox

Just what my eyes needed to see this morning, calm and peaceful and truly the right word that I so have to practice. Thank you for all this, Elk.
Have a wonderful, fun weekend!

Leslie said...

yes. i am surprised, because i think it must take so much patience to create the tiny beautiful things you create.

Patience, we all need more of it. It would make our lives and those of others around us a lot better. Lovely words to go with your sweet birds. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

I love these sepia-tea-stained diaphanous birds... So lovely, so fragile--like life. I think we all stumble on patience now and then, I do too. The nice thing is, we can dust ourselves off and start over again. Interesting I've been play with tea bag "papers" too.. we all are just now, aren't we? ;o) Happy Weekend, Elk ((HUGS))

This is beautiful!
So delicate and ethereal, yet made from such a mundane thing as a teabag.

Did you take the paper from the coffee chocolates to make a bird? That would smell AND look fabulous. Earthy.......
