Sarah& the noises

Being an HSP comes with its own set of challenges as well as blessings. For me one of the challenges is noises.

Poem: Overture (for Write from the Heart, August 2020)

The smell of cowpats mixed with sun-warm grass and wildflowers,
Rough bark and silken butterfly wings, 
Muddy lake feet and pursed lemon lips, 
Bonfire crackle and the cracking of crab shell,
Crimson sun melting into indigo,

Poem: The pleasure of being witnessed

Homophones #10 (last for now)

So this is the last homophones comic that I have drawn, and even though I still have more ideas I need to make time to sit down and draw them. Since they seem to be very hard to guess and I’m doing them mainly for my own amusement I may put them on the back…
