Light pink and plum shades,
Delicate and transient,
Their sweet scents pervade.
Swans gracefully glide across from one side to the other of a lake to find their nests to rest in at midnight. The moon glistens in the distance.
Wherever we go, falling leaves always return to their roots - a saying that will always resonate with me. No matter what happens, family will always be there to provide unconditional love.
Constantly wandering, never settling, finding self-happiness. Inspired by traipsing through forests and countrysides in Summer 2020.
Cats meowing and dancing into the night whilst the rest of the world sleeps.
Dancing in the powdery snow, white flakes from the dark night gently kiss the skin, the flakes glitter against the stars, swirling and twirling as the feet move across the surface.
The winds of the East pass through, child memories brew. Memories related to the time my grandfather spent teaching me Chinese poetry, art and calligraphy.
Love transcends time and distance.
From morning to night, the canals of Amsterdam glisten magically against the backdrop of beautifully uniform, looming and narrow buildings. The heart dances with inspiration.
A whimsical ball awaits...
