Dipping my toes…

“Oh to dip my toes

In such an inviting stream

would feel like heaven…

… descends an angel

surrounded by rays of light

bathing me in peace.”

This is for Haiku my heArt Friday, hosted by the amazing Rebecca at Recuerda mi corazon. See more haikus and photos over there

Image and fabulous tutorial courtesy of Photoshop star… which I followed as best I could to create the mystical scene in the second image. I am hugely enjoying the learning process in Photoshop, indeed “dipping my toes” figuratively into the infinite possibilities offered by the world of digital art. It’s just amazing… and there are so many talented and generous artists who share of their knowledge and expertise freely.

Textures from Shadowhouse Creations and Kim Klassen – thank you. 🙂

  1. Beautiful words and pictures.

  2. I love that first shot a lot! Your words are ‘seen’ in the photo, literally and figuratively. I want to dip my toes, and I can see the angel image in the photo and in my mind. Love it!


  3. Very beautiful… lovely peace..

  4. On a day like today when it is only 36 degrees out side, returning to early summer and playing in the stream is so inviting. Lovely verse and pictures!

  5. It’s too cold to dip my toes anywhere in water at this moment… but I can almost feel the sunshine in your photos and LOVE the haiku!! The edited photo is great too… you sure have fun with Photoshop, I can see it!

  6. Beautiful spot and refreshing too!! The cool waters of a fall are far better than that of a pool!!

  7. I can feel my feet in there, too! What a refreshing, cool space you’ve created…
