One Song

Thanks to Chris I had a chance to play with the wonderful material of cork. This is a kind of cork sheet and i cut to atc size and stamped and embossed and brayered plus added touches of white gel pen and some small gems.
It is designed to go with a poem i wrote in 2006 called :

'One Song' (c) J.macfarlane

One song rises from within the morning forest
A beautiful solo aria carried upon the breeze
Sweet clear notes, like tiny bells beneath the rain
call out her joy of another painted dawn.
Soon her voice is answered by another timid soul
joining her in gleeful celebration of nature's gifting.
Quiter creatures sigh their own softness of sound
creating a cantata as the love of a new day is born
One voice rises from withing the morning forest
Just one song bursting with joy brings a whole choir of hope.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Please also come and see me at Dezinaworld blog
