Colour painting and bird poem.

I done this painting in colour pencils.
"poem" High rise?
In my yard
front and back
are few trees.
One day while looking out,
I saw this bird going
from branches to branches
up and down the tree.
looking for a place to rest.
as the tree was in full bloom
it was hard to see him
appeared and dissapeared.
He kept doing this,
a couple more time,
until he finally
found a place.
Watching his antics
I thought of the tree,
as a log house
with multiple floors,
or a highrise.
The bird doing
some exploring,
from one level to another,
higher on,and finally
settling in the middle.


  1. I enjoyed your short story, it blends in perfectly with this fine piece of work. There seems to be many colors and details intergrade... It is such a shame that the light does not do justice to such a beautiful colored pencil tableau.
    Love Theresa
