Lisa Graham's Art With Words


 Creative challenge by Grace from Imaginary Garden With Real Toads
Art by Lisa Graham

Give me not the cities
With buildings in the air
Some have scary faces
More people than I can bare

Send me to the country
Where only trees grow tall
To sweet air and cool water
And sounds...I love them all.

I love the painting Lisa.  Thanks for the challenge, Grace.

My feeling exactly, sister mine.

Well, I wouldn't want to live in a city that looked like that!

Grace said...

Send me out to the country too where the air is sweet and water is cool ~

Thanks for linking up with Sunday's Challenge ~ Wishing you Happy weekend ~

I like your poem but I must admit that I like both the city and the country. I love this picture. It reminds me of the Boston city skyline that I see across the water

Henny Penny said...

I agree totally with your poem. I'll take the country!

LindaG said...

It's a nice picture, but I love your poem, Gail. :-)

Lynne said...

I liked and agree . . .

Mama Zen said...

I couldn't agree more!

Ha ha! Wonderful! I am a country girl myself, but I don't have a choice since I live in Kansas. :)

I DO LOVE big cities...but in small doses.

Your poem was really great!

I love to go to the city, and I love the country even more, but put me by the bayside and I am one happy girl. I like this poem and I agree :)

Robyn Greenhouse said...

I like your poem! I do like cities though with the rush of excitement, and then the balance of the country full of nature and beauty!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Lovely response to the artwork, Gail.

You and I are both country mice! I second this!

I read your blog title and then I read the poem. Both match a written opinion and (hopefully) happy life.

The poem and the art go together perfectly.

Perfect union of image and words...there are times my country heart wishes to escape the city

I love the country, for a day or so. But the to spend time I really like the city centers of the old romantic cities. Modern cities tend to be sterile with perhaps a make believe city center added as an after thought.

I like the way the city scene leads you to your country desires. Nice.

Beautiful, and from my corner - a resounding AMEN! Never send me to the city to dwell, I would surely wither up and die there.

DesertHen said...

I totally agree! The city is not for me.
