a dreaming song

Oh friends, thank you for all your encouraging comments and heartfelt emails on my last post, it really means more than I can say to hear your "me too's" and sense your love across the seas... 

speaking of seas, and flying across them - this is the latest illustration in a series I am doing with reuben dreaming and oh what wonderful places he must adventure to when slumbering...

nestled tight,
feather against cheek
and eyes closed shut,
heart that beats
and wings
cross sky
and sea

nestled warm,
small hands 
and toes curled in,
mind that rests
and wanders
over land
and tree

nestled there,
first child of mine
against my breast,
and ears that hear
a song
so sweet
and free.
