kingdom come

Happy Tree artwork

(Used with permission on d’Verse Poets prompt by Grace)



nations gathered in

names written in royal blood

no longer any curse


jeweled city walls

rainbow children feast with king

music paints the sky


healing tree of life

father’s house of many rooms

paradise restored

    very interesting piece…to me, very spiritual….the different houses of royal name made me thing of the tribes of israel…and obviously the allusion to heaven in the end….

    thanks for dropping in….smiles.

    Wonderful take on the painting; seems that so many of us followed the darkness, the shadow of gray and B&W, the counterpoint to the lovely bright color infusion of her artwork; but you took the palette by the horns & rode it on high; nice.
