Simple figures drawn with crayon
firmly standing on horizontal ground
A solid waxy orange sphere hovers…
glowing rays are earthward bound

Free from care… smiling faces beam

Time stands still in your beautiful crayon drawing. I like what you see from your own personal window on the world. Thank you. Warm regards, Sandra

Dear Theresa, being a woman you have an advantage (as compared to all of us, men) . You can write a poem with your crayon, even to choose colours from a rainbow. (Though a man, I tried to do it in my poem Unknown Beauty) . I give you a 10, and thanks for sharing
