Painting in Pastels

Post No. 829


Painting in Pastels


Airbrush a gentle

Suggestion of colour

A palette of blush

An aura of pallor

A sensation of wash

And a glow or glimmer

A glister or lustre

A trace or a shadow

An air of mystery

Of enchanting subtlety

Painting beyond prose

Party Dresses

Party Dresses


martie an’ me we was so axcited. our school was having a party on friday night for its tenth birthday. mit* rock ‘n roll musiek an’ als**.

my ma said she would sew our dresses. she had some lef’ overs from the curtains and she would buy a small piece of silver cloth she saw at yusuf’s shop.

the dresses was a secret and martie and me, we wasn’t s’posed to see. my ma sewed every chance she got.

well on friday after school martie’s ma came to our house to help martie and me get ready for the party. even the neighbours came to see how we looked. we was so proud.

my ma had made both dresses the same. she had cut out stars and bells out of the silver cloth an’ stuck them on the skirts. martie had the stars and i had the bells.

so martie was the star of the party an’ i was the bell of the ball!
