Dieu on the Grass

A personal curation of my poetry, writings and images

Quote for the day

I am an expression of the divine, just like a peach is, just like a fish is. I have a right to be this way. I can’t apologize for that, nor can I change it, nor do I want to. We will never have to be other than who we are in order to be successful. We realize that we are as ourselves unlimited and our experiences valid. It is for the rest of the world to recognize this, if they choose.

~Alice Walker, The Color Purple

Thought of the day

It is better
to be broken
hearted
than
hard-hearted.

Quote for the day

She did not need much, wanted very little. A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water, a garden, kisses, books to read, sheltering arms, a cozy bed, and to love and be loved in return.

Painting flowers

This painting took me awhile to finish. It didn’t turn out exactly how I envisioned it, but I’m quite happy with the result. I think flowers are one of my favorite things to paint, but getting all those petals right is so hard!

Quote for the day

It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.
