only to find nothing

tangled in spring
calla lilies
glow in the sun

pulling weeds
mosquitos buzz
cuts on my hands

    • Lol! Frida Kahlo is often an acquired taste. I like some of her work, but find it hard to understand. This particular piece was included in the prompt as one of the art choices – it was the one that spoke to me. 🙂
