I've spent a little time distracting myself from world events by trying to express my deep love for all animals.  These are  a few of my expressions.














MY DEAR FELLOW CREATURES

I love a good mystery
Especially one like you
Existing without answers or questions
About that huge WHY that plagues humans
Because we think, we are
So smart, to know. 

But not you,
You're not even aware of yourself
Of your beauty, your monstrosity,
Your weakness, your might,
Your sweetness, your ferocity
Or how you "chose" to 
swim, crawl or fly.

You don't care
To examine reasons why
we're connected
We simply are
You and I
Earth's creatures entwined

I don't care either
To know why
I love you so much
Mysteriously, I just do.

  1. I can understand Myrna why you want to distract yourself....it is so overwhelming....but what a wonderful way to do it by creating such beautiful pictures and poetry....I especially love the words:

    'You don't care
    To examine reasons why
    we're connected
    We simply are
    You and I
    Earth's creatures entwined'

    And if we could all just feel the connections of our souls and leave the thoughts, words and judgments behind we would not be dealing the issues that are currently plaguing our world.

  2. Ah, there is good reason to distract oneself from the world these days; and your drawings of animals certain seem like a positive diversion. Perhaps to focus on the connectedness of all living things is better than to think about the divisiveness all around.

  3. The poem brings me back to a truth so lacking in the world of greed and twisted intentions running our country. Beautiful art!

  4. LOVE your distractions. I too find solace and healing in the natural world - and in the dexterity of your images and words.

  9. Humans are so different from other creatures as they think of ways to destroy each other but other creatures' prime aim is to preserve their species.
