[sketches using ink pencils on newsprint the bold mosaic lines were done using charcoal]

hot day -
sound of a pigeon

hankering for
the sound of raindrops -
blistering hot day

a glass of straws
iced tea
to cool a scorching day

Very nice, Gillena. We've had more than enough rain. It's been a strange last few months. Hot, hot, then cold. Rainy and drought.
