Electric Girl

I’d like to share a painting by one of my favorite artists with you.  His Etsy shop is here- this one isn’t on the shop yet, but you can always ‘Contact Shop Owner’ if you are interested!  He’s a San Francisco/Bay Area artist, John Sounds.



Electric girl

your hair

tomorrow’s rain


A different kind of color

It’s a different kind of color.

Not the grey of a soggy morning
or the purple of her tears.

It’s more like yellow
baby hair, soft tendrils,
fluffy cotton candy
smelling of sugar
and mother.

Or the first daffodil breaking
a blazing head through
tall green stalks or maybe
the sun when you thought
you’d never get warm.

It’s that kind of yellow
that surprises my heart
when you blaze out a smile.
