Art by me, Isa.

It’s based on this photo I found using Google:

SailingPhotoI used oil pastels, and I think it came out pretty okay. I usually only sketch, so pastels is  a bit different, though I have used them before. I wish the color would be a bit warmer, and stronger. Oh, well. Otherwise, I feel very happy about this.

As I go sailing

Towards a blazing sun

I see that the day is ending

But an adventure has begun.

That’s also by me, it just popped out of my head. 🙂

I hope you like it!



Pounding Rain

So, I was up in the middle of the night, not being able to sleep, and I started thinking about how when we move in life, we are cautious, but we also grow confident. In the end, I got up to write this poem/song.


Dancing in the Rain by annakoutsidou on DeviantArt

As I put one foot in front of the other,

I make sure I don’t step on another,

Because that’s what kills them most.


But try as I might

The floors still creak

Tired of waiting.


And as I stand up

I feel only like

A cry of thunder in the pounding rain


But as I grow tall

I feel like it all

Just dies away in the pounding rain!


And though the floors still creak

I don’t feel so weak

My stand is firm!


But strong as I am

I won’t step on you.
