Watercolor Illustrated Poem Quote

Take the leap - own the sky - poem quote and watercolour illustration by Ms Moem, English Poet. @MsMoem

This quote is a snippet of a poem I wrote. I decided it might suit being jazzed up with a bit of illustration, and watercolour at that!

I’m still very much in beginner territory when it comes to watercolour painting, so I am quite pleased at how it has turned out. It has already inspired me to create more along the same line, so I hope they might be well-received.

There’s something terribly therapeutic about painting and I really enjoyed being creative in a different way, so along the same theme as the poem quote above, if there is something you want to do or try, take the leap and give it a whirl!

Strangers. Friends. Hello. Simple.

Strangers. Friends. Hello. Simple. Poem by Ms Moem. @msmoem

Strangers. Friends. Hello. Simple.

Encouraged
to see strangers
as
friends
a trip to the park ends with a
grin.
It begins with a coy hello
and before you know it
you are running around together
enjoying the simple pleasures
of slides and swings.
Uninhibited laughter rings free.
If only we never lost those values
how sweet life would be.

Strangers. Friends. Hello. Simple. is a short poem by English poet, Ms Moem about what we can learn from the way children see the world. The difference between a stranger and a friend is whether or not you have said hello.
