Illustration Friday "Storm"

Monsoon clouds gather,
 The mist like a feathery coat,
gently caresses the edge of the hill.
 Beyond, the peaks melt,
Into the dense gray sky,
As sheets of rain fall.
 I peer through the glass windows,
Of the little Red Room.

Note:  A memory from my childhood - The little Red Room is the smallest room with a magnificent view at "Beaconsfield", a wooden house nearly 150 years old from the British period in the Hill town of Dalhousie.The house stands atop a hill and boasts of 11 large rooms, however the quaint and cosy Red Room is the place to sit with a cup of warm tea and gaze upon the mountains as the storm clouds gather.

Illustration Friday..."Wheel"

The potter at his wheel,
Spins a slender dream,

Like a tune or a song,
A bit of clay takes form,

Stretching and turning,
Spinning and curling,

A work of art is born.
