Late Meadow with Full Moon
© Therese Desjardin

Meadow Turf
Janet Lewis (1899 – 1998)

Goldenrod, strawberry leaf, small bristling aster, all
Loosestrife, knife-bladed grasses, lacing their roots, lacing

The life of the meadow into a deep embrace

Far underground, and all their shoots, wet at the base,

With shining dew, dry-crested with sun,

Springing out of a mould years old;

Leaves, living and dead, whose stealing

Odors on the cold bright air shed healing —

Oh, heart, here is your healing, here among

The fragrant living and dead.

    The picture and the poem ARE healing for my heart ~*~
    If I stare into it long enough, I'm hoping to fall into the magical meadow!

    Thank you, Denise, for mentioning the art. I actually invest a pretty fair bit of time, searching for the artwork to illustrate my posts.

    Besides choosing art that I hope will inspire my visitors, I also care very much about using this as a quiet way to promote artists when I can.

    I hope that you all click on the links, when I'm able to provide them. Often, like for Therese, their other artwork is also quite marvelous, and well worth a visit.

    Beth, I did check out her link and her artwork is amazing…I especially like the Orange Dogwood painting, though the one you used is still my favorite from her collection. Ah well, even if I had the money, they are both marked sold; thank you for introducing her work to us, I'm going to place her page in my favorites so I can go back and fall into the portrait whenever I feel the need to disappear. 😉
