Graffiti art


Graffiti art in Kensington Market, Toronto
Grace @ Everyday Amazing


draw here:
happy face, round
as lollipops, merry  
as can be, with a brash note - i
was here 
  
~0~0~  
And this is for Kay's Sunday Challenge:  


put your 
smile & red nose - 
play the fool till they laugh
chasing tears & fears away, be 
a clown



Posted for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads -OpenLinkNight and  Sunday's Challenge - My memories of clowns are happy ones, specially attending children's parties and hosting parties for my children when they were young.

We visited the Kensington Market yesterday, Sunday and had fun checking out eclectic, vintage and international stuff.   A good day to be out and about, though it's still cold here.   Happy day to everyone ~

  6. I like both of these poems - short, sweet, with a hint of reality behind the farce.

  7. Two for the price of one. Both brilliant talkes on the challenges. For some reason I could not come up with any good ideas for either of these prompts...I suck. Loved both of these.

  9. I liked the first one a lot - "I was here" - how appropriate for the motivation behind any graffiti :)

  10. I'm glad clowns chased your tears and fears away, Grace. I know they want to make children laugh, and to make them happy, and your clown succeeded. Good work.
