A CURVE for the shore,
A line for the an open pasture laid fallow for grazing > Used in "A Japanese Print," #lea [G] [Photo],
A tint for the sky
Where the sunrise will be.
A stroke for a gull, a sweep for the main;
The skill to do more —
With the will to refrain.

You can find my book on Amazon. >>> Sera is bored in the ancient village of Sleep. But, when a desperate deal gives her four fuzzy beans and far more than she bargains for, she discovers where personal responsibility lays in this stirring interpretation of a classic tale. You’ll chuckle and brush away a sneaky tear as you read If You Don’t Want to Go to Sleep, Close Your Eyes.
