"L" is for Loving - #A to Z Blogging Challenge 2017

"L" is for Loving in the Spirit Visions series. What better choice than Easter Weekend for the word, loving? What better time than now when we need loving thoughts and visions all over the world? For today, I chose a larger watercolor painting, 13" x 10", instead of one from my series of small works. I believe this painting depicts the energy and joy that Loving brings into one's life.

Like vivid flakes of snow
The pastel colors flicker before my eyes.
With agility a host of forgotten memories
Arise from the past.

Excitement stirs laughter.
My heart flutters and lilts.
All around, loving light dances
And I am lost in sunshine.

The touch of a hand,
The sparkle in an eye,
Dimples on a baby's cheek.
Days long gone.

Happily, I study color
And laugh into the luminous glow.
Darkness fades, bright dreams appear
And loving thoughts glide into the night.

A beautiful blend of colors that do suggest bright dreams and loving thought, Mary.
Merely viewing a replica of your artwork is relaxing.
