An "Earthbound" Heart

Of the four elements – earth, water, air and fire I am of the earth.  Sometimes, when I feel too unimaginative or too organized or too predictable I wish to be of air or water – floating and flying free and clear.  Other times I love being earthbound.  I love the feeling of planting my feet firmly upon the ground, of taking each day a step at a time.

This “Earthbound” heart holds deep earthen colors – those of the rocks and red earth, of the sun being soaked into the ground.  This heart is ‘my’ heart as it is attached to this beautiful earth.
"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair". - Khahil Kabran


  1. I too am of the oath, or perhaps the rock. So this earthy heart really speaks to me.

  2. This piece is so, well....earthy! Everything about it, the colors, tones, textures and twig, all of our good earth. Even the button has a grounded feel to it. It looks like it might be shell, which would be so appropriate on your lovely heart.

  3. Earth colours such as ochres are always warming and cheering.

  4. OMG these are gorgeous..just love the earth colours..l am in heaven just looking at this heartx sigh! Hax lynda
