Sunday Scribblings Anticipation

An acrylic painted bag done for Pepper then coated with varnish!
The flower center is actually pink but it doesn't show accurately on the post!

This time of year has many sad memories for me, my mother died after a grueling three months in palliative care, five years later my long term marriage ended in an ugly messy divorce. It's a season of many other losses too! It's a time of reflection that I rarely anticipate with joy. Except when the fifth of august rolls around to my dear son-in-laws birthday.Such a special gift he is to our lives, he is definately my rainbow after a bad storm of memories!




Sunday Scribbling prompt this week "anticipation!
"



Making major decisions has become extremely difficult as I age!

Unsure

Anticipating

pivotal decisions

Confidence wanes

Unlike former years

When the embryo of hope

Embraced endless possibilities

Fostering a brazen fortitude

Today choices are examined

Like the last prized rose

Infested with aphids

Carefully plucking

Each morsel of concern

To expose the radiance

Of the bloom

Knowing full well

In coming days

It could be

Completely

Irrelevant!

beautiful poem. It's good to find those moments of joy to dwell on, in spite of the situation being dark or sad.

Stay strong!

Yes, I understand the uncertainty of anticipation and the procrastination that can surface from it. I do think that we change the way we do things as we get move from one life stage to the next.

I'm sorry this is such a hard time of year for you. I'm hopeful good happenings now and at this time of year in the future will ease it for you.

Love the end of your poem in particular.

I feel happy knowing that you find joy in your son in law and that this adds goodness to this time for you.
Yes decisions can be hard, for each one takes us down a path. Which path to choose. Wishing you clarity with grace.

As always, you create beauty even though there is pain in the background. I love the poem and the shaped format - the bag is awesome too! What kind of varnish do you use and doesn't it crack? I'd love to try something like that. You can email me at deedeekm at gmail dot com. :)
