Illo Friday: Spring

it began with two empty buds,
colorless, plain, almost dull.

they started gazing at the sky
and stood still, quietly standing by

through the horizon one blossomed
while the other pushed the pace in motion

then they both bloomed in full extent
two souls filling up what's once an emptiness

a pasture of green they now paint
awaiting to make that leap the right moment

and dream inseparably they went
for every bright beginning shall spring with no end...

Lesson learned: Nothing is impossible. One just have to dream and hold on to that dream. And everything shall be alright.

I missed two weeks on Illo Friday. Working on a night shift is so tiring than expected, hopefully I adjust to it that I can wake up long on day time too.

I actually made this illo weeks ago, and based it on a photo i found on the net. sorry, forgot where i found it.

but its so timely that the topic for this week is spring. so added up some lines and thought of posting how i did it.. hope you all like my week's contribution...

I thought maybe you had fallen into the sky.
The windmill is sweet and timeless, it looks comfortable with the beautiful red tulips. The steps of your Spring eith their words-a real treat to see and read!

valgalart.. oh and i miss visiting all your wonderful illos! and gee how many new participants.. only over the weekend and its 300+ already! woah!

floots.. hmm..
dreaming of flowers...
and the language of flowers...

isay.. yeah really think i should go there... and this time of the year is perfect.. hmmm *.* just when the tulips are starting to bloom...

well my work? let's just say it's indeed only during nights and yeah infront of a pc too.. but i can't easily access blogs or mails there .. we are all monitored. *sigh* so i just peek from time to time.

hi Pearl! nice that you clicked thru here from flickr. actually, the step by step kinda shows it... but the main component is an optical mouse and lots of time... which sadly i dont have right now so no updates yet on Illustration Friday. 8(
