S for ABC Wednesday

The ABC Wednesday Team offers the letter S as the weekly prompt! Thank you, Team!




Solo

A solitary swan took flight
toward the edge of a dusky night
where a setting sun bled the day
deep into the coastal waterway.

Both the watercolor sketch and the poem were among my first attempts nearly a decade ago when I was beyond everything known and on my way to an unknown phase/chapter.

The drawing has an Asian tinge The poem feels right

Unknown phases/chapters are scary but necessary I think for a complete life

Solitary swan! Even the title's good.

Scary sometimes to travel solo.
Following one's heart is the best.
You did well.

Unknown phase or not your writing hasn't been affected. This is beautiful writing and watercolor.

A beautiful waterway and beautiful words to go with it!

I'm afraid my artistic skills are sorely lacking, but I can still appreciate talent such as yours. oh, the poem is nice as well.

Lily Hydrangea said...

your poem is the perfect accompaniment to your sketch, beautiful!

lissa said...

a lone journey, but perhaps sometimes it's necessary to travel by oneself

I think the beginning is always the hardest but you do learn a lot from failed attempts and mistakes

Wonderful watercolour! Solitary swans are sad because they have either lost their partner or not found one.They always stay together. Thanks for sharing and visiting.

The watercolour is gorgeous! I can't believe that was a first attempt!

The poem reminds me of Betjeman, one of my favourite poets.

I know I left a comment on this one, but I don't see it!

I said how much I liked your watercolour. It really doesn't look like a 'first attempt'! It's very lovely.

And also, your poem reminds me of John Betjeman!
