one single impression -- faces

"One Single Impression":

The prompt this week (#22) is "faces"



faces

drawn from life
their faces fill the pages
of my memory,
at times bereft of names
or place.

You are an amazing artist. This poem is lovely as well... not just in it's literal truth but in the underlying universal truth it also expresses.

And the older I get the more names I forget! Cute poem and nice sketches to boot!

Your faces are wonderfully done and words are also as wonderful.

Sue, this is my first visit to your blog; I have enjoyed myself very much.

Firstly, I love sunflowers, too.

Secondly, my daughters and I have rescued many abandoned cats out here in the country where we live.

Thirdly, did you do the drawings? They are quite good, very expressive.

Lastly, I am fiercely opinionated also (though I try not to show this too much).

Joyce, thank you for your comments.

I did do the drawings. I'm a bit out of practice in the last decade and have recently started back (see self portraits in a post a few days early that this one).

We live in a very rural area that does not have local shelters (neither county nor Humane society nor ASPCA). A regional shelter will take dogs only. So I took in injured and abandoned cats for years, until my husband said "stop." Because we had stretched the budget to the limit. All of our kitties are now senior citizens. And I have put some of my time and energy into helping get a local shelter.
