Looking back
#oilpainting #portrait #small #blueeyes

Looking Back
So many things had happened
So many places we have lived
So many friends we made
Now we are facing a world we almost hate
A world so unclear
With so many genders
You became a defender
Race wars
That dig in with claws
We do not understand
Cyber world is mad
Dictators are bad
Looking back
We surely grew up in Paradise
What a demise?
Simplicity we can only wish!

Posting a painting on Facebook a follower commented,
«Do you know what is going on in the world?» As if I should not concern myself with art when the world is in disarray. My answer, «Yes, but my art is a different universe, even if I’m most saddened by the current events.»

Time 4 -. ...we will sing together again

The Lockdown singers are singing
While the doomsday clock is ticking
The world is in a state
And Covid-19 dictate
Thursday nights are clapping time
For NHS who is doing a job so fine
Who would have ever known
We would have to sing and dance in 2020, on our own
Stay at home to keep us safe
A mantra to embrace
And keep us in place
Leave the fight for the brave
Travel is forbidden
So next is organising
and finding
forgotten treasures hidden
Sleep is at last enough, life is slower
Celebraties have no status
And bragging is over
All needs less apparatus
So life is not so bad
so please don’t be sad.
All will be ok and we will sing side by side again.

Sun with an attitude

Sun came bursting over the mountain
With rays dancing, flirting with man and nature
A boasting attitude
In glorious magnitude
Sun, I want to say
You are so welcome every day
You carry warmth and joy
Into the hearts of girl and boy
Your energy fill all hearts and minds
Stripping the sorrows and heartaches of mankind,
At least for a while
To everyone so fragile -
Sun, you bring courage
And hope to flourish
In spite of the threat of this invisible enemy
Sun, stay please,
For the summer at least
We need your warmth and strength
We need your jovial attitude
And accept all with gratitude
Sun we really do love you.
Just stay for a while!

Happy House

A humble abode
And a happy place
a place called home
That keep warm and safe at day and night
The sun and moon for light
Flowers a glorious decoration
And visitors’ admiration
How privileged to be
Filled with glee
For a place just for me.

Oil painting framed. Ready to dispatch. Thanks for viewing

Time no3: ....to read those eyes
#oilpainting #forsale #covid19 #suzetteLondon #emotion #care

Her face with a mask
Telling of the reality, so stark
Only eyes portray
The ordeal of her day
Eyes that speak of love and care
In a time when life or death feels so, unfair
Eyes that are telling a whole tale
Of horror and miracles on the roll
But perserverance to make a difference
No matter the affluence
Every life matters
And some leave her heart in tatters
Telling a tale of sorrow
And telling a tale of triumph
Is rotating in her eyes like a rollercoaster
But hope keeps her courageous to a disease so contagious
So for today she will be a marching soldier
Fighting until this is over
And then we all will tread more carefully
And look with softer eyes

Time to realise we are just visitors on this earth. Time series. No 2

#suzetteartcom. #oilpainting #lockdown
Time to realise we are only visitors on this earth
Every day we are bombarded with the global death toll
And confronted with mortality as a whole
In the beginning it gripped you with fear
For your loved ones, so dear
Then it dawns on you it could be you,
You work through it, and it’s ok
Then again the thoughts of dying alone
The process starts again
Ok, alone, it is ok
So we should live in full today, make the most of being close although distancing, today.
As the levelling process goes on
You remember things of long gone.
Hugs and kisses
Coffee with a friend
Helping someone on the mend
Holidays and trips
Appreciation for family, friends and privileges you enjoyed make you torn between here and gone.
And then the thoughts of - what is my legacy?
What is my footprint?
And the realisation of being just a mere visitor on this earth
That we always were, but are confronted with it now, like never before.
Shaken at the core, visitor of the earth, what do you leave behind?
My hope is
That it would be kind.

#oilpainting #forsale #lockdown #suzetteartcom

Amsterdam
Amsterdam I remember you
With bicycle bells ringing
And teenagers yelling
over traffic banging
And tourists jumping from the onslaught of the bicycle brigade
I remember
Trams going back and forth
Trains filled with chattering people
Except however in the quiet coaches
I remember
Mummies on bikes like mother hens
Little ones in the buckets like chickens in a nest,
mouths wide open as they are singing at their best
But now 2020... all is gone
No bicycles
No speeding boats in your canals
No girls under red lights
No drooling customers shopping them with lustful eyes
No queues at Anne Frank House, Van Gogh museum or else where
Amsterdam I can almost hear you Breathing peacefully, like a woman with a big bosom, going up and down with a calm rhythm.
Smiling contently as if you know this will also end
Then you will stretch your arms out and embrace us all
as you had a rest,
and that was best

Time for the earth to heal

Mother seagull is talking serious today
Around her neck is a clock to say
Time - dear little ones. It is Time!
Time for us to stop.
The earth has been begging for so long
Stop stop and listen
Stop stop and see
Stop stop and feel
Stop stop and smell
No one was listening to the earth’s bell
No one heard the Earth sighing and gasping
Limping and blasting
It was too much!
Something was about to give
So little ones we, and mankind, we are forced to stop and help earth to breathe again.
Earth wants to smile again
Earth and man needs to get its balance again
So much sadness when everyone is wounded in the process
but so much
Life and peace and joy, kindness and love to follow
How can we know joy if we don’t know sadness.
Earth we are so sorry for not listening to your heart losing it’s rythm
May we tread more careful in future and stay tuned to your quest
for balance and beauty.
Earth may you heal soon

Hope
Who would ever have thought of living in this way?
I woke up this morning and thought all is so the same
But everything is so different today
Fear wanted to grip me and make me feel insane
Then I made a u-turn in my head
While still lying in bed:
A wave of thankfulness
And nothing less
All my family are still safe
We have our homes and hopes
We have loved ones
We have food and clothes
We have time together although apart.
We have time to think about our actions:
To Spread love or anger
To be calm or agitated
To support each other in sadness and joy
Time for Reflection of our lives – a luxury in itself.
Dreams still for the future whatever it might be
But best of all we have HOPE.

London
Oh lovely, lively London
Do not turn into horror, desolate London
Do not scare us to a point of no return
People that hustled and bustled in and around London a few weeks ago
Has now disappeared and it feels like a blow
Government is overloaded and overwhelmed
The Healthcare becomes so relevant
Horror is in your mind
To see what is daily to be find
Social shielding and social distancing
Words you never used is now keywords
Phases are on the order of the day
And in your heart you feel like you want to stop to play.
But Corona Virus I tell you now.
We will fight you with our minds
And you will not kill mankind.
To all keep safe
And do good deeds and be brave

White daisies how friendly you look
You are lighting up the room
You pose openly as if you want to say "I have nothing to hide"
You communicate care to detail
Your pot is so shiny and complimenting your freshness
How I love your presence
Daisies are a winner a compliment to the table

My daughter loved finding this in Joydens wood today!
My son and dauguter found some of you stones, in hall place gardens, they are lovely. We have rehide them for someone else to find.
Most read articles in 2017
KLAPPE VOETE Die goede vrou en haar man is erg verblyd om ons te sien. Die man se hy het oud geword En die lewe is so kort. Die man se dat sy voete nou klap Hy was op ‘n dag ‘n speurder gewees en moes suutjies loop En hoe moet hy nou? Dis ‘n knoop. Sy geode vrou se: ‘Gaan dit goed met my dan gaan dit goed met jou’ Oompie se: Ek hoor nie mooi, en my voete klap, maar die versekering het my stewels gegee om beter te trap en En goeters vir my ore, maar praat twee is ek verlore. Oompie se vrou se: Dan fietse jy maar en hoef jy ook nie te trap, want die fiets se motor ry dat dit klap. Die man glimlag bly, want speurder HOEF hy nie meer. Saggies loop KAN hy nie meer. Die bure moet die klappende voete maar verduur want Daarvoor is geen kuur. Nou dink oompie : Behalwe vir ore wat nie meer hoor Voete wat klap En kop wat nie meer sinne wil maak Is als tog goed, inderdaad! Want ouderdom is nou sy maat. CLAPPING FEET The old man and his wife are so happy to see us The man said he is now old And life seems so short He said: I have now clapping feet The man was a detective that had to move quiet on the job But now….? That is quite a thing! His lovely wife says lovingly: ‘ If I am ok you will be ok and smiles’ The old man continues: I can’t hear so well also, and my feet are clapping but the insurance gave me new shoes and gadgets for the ears, But please speak one by one otherwise the ears get confuse. The lady said not to worry: The bicycle with the motor get him about without a hurry. The man smiles and say: Luckily I do not have to be a detective no more And for clapping feet there is no cure So the neighbours will have to endure. So this is what the old man thinks: Except for non hearing ears And clapping feet and A head that refuse to make sentences All is well Because age is now his pal!
