Pine Cone People

Pine cone people beneath the tree,
Pine cone faces smile up at me,
In this lonely meadow
standing up so tall
beneath your sagging branches
the pine cone people fall.

Prompt 22: Faces
This is the third in a series of posts about the Yellow House.


  1. I love your drawings! Whenever I visit your blog, I'm just tickled and I feel myself relax a little.

  2. These are wonderful--both poem and pcture. I love your imagination!

  3. Marvellous! I liked the sketch very much. Great verse too!

    weed it out

  4. Bonnie, what a nice thing to say! I'm just tickled to know my art and writing can provide a little pleasure and relaxation in your day!

    Sandy, Thank you! I am trying to revive my imagination. It's been sleeping for awhile. OSI inspires me and gives me a goal to work towards. Between this blog and Sycamore Canyon, I don't watch TV much anymore. That is a good thing.

  5. Delightful sketch and poem. :-)

  6. "Pine cone faces smile up at me"-
    a creative phrase "pine cone people"_do they pine for what is not?..many thanks for sharing..

  7. I just looked up Westfield. Nice up there!
    Isn't it amazing the places you can find faces?

    Did you pulish the yellow house? Love your words and artwork.

  8. pinecones... who would have thought... the drawing is so whimsical... will never look at a pinecone the same way again... i will expect to see them smiling the next time i look...

  9. Garden path, Westfield is so small, I'm surprised it shows up anywhere! No, I haven't published this book anywhere but here, yet. I would sure love to do that though. This is just a snippet. There is so much more to tell.

  10. Delightfully whimsical and magical words and pictures. Lovely.

  11. What a great idea in both words and drawing.

  12. Pine cone faces. What an interesting concept and such a lovely poetic explanation.

  13. I enjoy your stylized drawing style.

    What a creative response to the FACES prompt!

  14. Thank you Raven, Quiet Paths, Teric, and Joyce! A little imagination goes a long way!
