A poetic journey into the imagination...
.🌙 Once upon a time in a far distant land there lived a young girl by the sea.
Closing her eyes, her soul opened wide. She allowed her heart to fly free.
Down she went—into the unknown: a journey inside her own skin.
Rainbows sang and honeycombs listened as she traveled the spiral within.
In the caverns of consciousness she met a strange wizard whose purple dragon said:
Many have forgotten, but still you remember--imagination is how life is fed.

Originally published this on Instagram, but wanted to share here as well because I worked quite hard on this special little piece. I have a lyrical, poetic mind and heart, and I love to use my unique way of seeing the world to inspire others to tap into a sense of playful wonder and magic they may have forgotten. ✨.
I've been dreamily immersed in the watercolor's creation for the past week, and the poem is part of a longer children’s story I started writing several years ago. Still hope to publish it in entirety someday! .
Watercolor self-portrait is a new challenge for me, but I enjoyed it. Hope it made you smile, too!! 🐉

Keep dreaming!! 🌈☁️✨🎪🐝💗📿
