Bow & Arrow

This was a wonderful gesture of my lovely friend Sarah.
The trust she showed, to give me this sketch of hers and make me write something apt for her drawing, gave me a new motivation. It was a challenge to my words and I loved it!

Do visit her blog and see her wonderful drawings.

Bow and Arrow

Forgotten art and hidden facts,
You conceal my role and abilities.

  1. Whoo-Hoo! You are really fast!! Thank you so, so much for your lovely words – you really don´t know how much they mean to me, my dear friend from far away!!! 😀 This is an extraordinary friendship and I looove extraordinary things!! 🙂 (Who wants to be normal, that would be quite boring, don´t you think?;)
    I can´t wait to do it again! Maybe next time we could try it the other way round? You could sent me a poem via Email and I try to draw or paint something? It´s time that you are becoming my muse as well;) Have a lovely weekend! Lots of love and many hugs! XOXO

    1. Thank you! Well, we did have a premeditated discussion about my perception and hers, after she sketched it.
      Glad you liked it!😊
