Poetry and Art - by Carol Anne Henderson

I am honored as Carol Anne Henderson, a really great poet has written several poems about my art. They are below:

Playing with The Wind

Walking down the pathway, doing what I do
I suddenly saw a flower playing with the wind
It took me by surprise to see this new play
Flowers shooting colors and laughter my way
The wind was romping ,which made the flower laugh
Drawings in the field, made me stray off the path
I had to look closer, such joy made me grin
Hey little flower, can I join you and the wind
The wind took my breath away, the flower held my heart
Would you like to stay with us , just sit back and laugh
Sitting with the flower, who was playing with the wind
Swaying back an forth, cradled my soul within
Stop rubbing your eyes at the things you can't believe
Curtsy to this theater that brings you to your knees

Carol Anne Henderson

Your Gift

I watched you this Winter, aloof and tall
Standing all alone, putting writing on the wall
I wondered where you came from to be here alone
Your feet in the water, as I sat upon my throne
I wanted to touch you, so you could tell me more
About the life you have, standing on the mirrored shore
I prayed no one would hurt you and allow you to stay alone
So all could watch in glory, at this statue like a stone
Some days you were here, some days you were gone
I missed you this spring when you left me all alone
Feathers soft and stoic, upon blueness rippled grace
Its almost like a whisper, a secret took your place
The gift you left for me , I'll always wonder where you are
Softness of the unspoken, flying with the stars

Carol Anne Henderson

The Light House

The Lighthouse is calling, calling with His light
To all those in need to come in from the night
There's plenty of room inside for all who are lost
The starving and the hungry who cannot find the cross
The children and the women the men can all come in
Children no longer hungry, the homeless are welcoming
This is the place of sanctuary that stands upon the shore
Come on all you people, come all you rich and poor
The tied and the lonely, the children with no shoes
The man who cannot read , sharing all his news
The Lighthouse beam is shinning ,this brilliant light is on
Calling at the distance singing sweetly at this storm
Of love and of comfort for the people of all streets
Safety for all who enter where truth and beauty meet
The night if full of darkness when your lonely in the cold
Step in this warm Lighthouse, to open arms that hold
To lay down your anger, to wipe away your tears
Gently soothe the pain that filled your heart for year's
There's a fireplace inside, all are welcome here
Beds and food and blanket's to cover all the fear
So look towards the night sky and see this mighty rock
The Lighthouse beaconing, His protection time can't stop

Carol Anne Henderson

I first saw Carol's work on You Tube and have placed a link to it below:



It is a very emotional, moving, youtube video about Death row dogs in New Mexico and the USA.

The video is directed by Gisele Veilleux.

Yucca Flower art print

Yucca flower southwestern botanical floral watercolor painting art print. This western plant is scattered throughout the desert of the southwest. The yucca flower is the New Mexico state flower. The yucca is a member of the lily family and a symbol of sturdiness and beauty. In the early summer, pale ivory flowers bloom at the tips of its long, fibrous stalks. At the base of the plant are broad, sharpedged leaves that look like stilettos. The yucca sometimes grows to the height of a small tree. What really amazes me about this plant is the American Indian's use for it. When I spent some time in El Paso Texas I traveled all over the west. My favorite thing to do is spend time visting the historical southwest areas and especially when Indian history is involved. One time I went to a spot where Indians were using the yucca root as an edible food and it is really good. I tasted the root once again when I ate at a restaurant in Orlando Florida called Texas da Brazil. If you are ever in Orlando and you want to be spoiled rotten eat at the Texas da Brazil. It is expensive but it is an experience with food that you will never forget. This painting is available as a 11 x 14 inch fine art print for
25 dollars plus 7 for shipping

Mango tree fruit still life watercolor painting

This mango tree is down the road from my house in Satellite Beach Florida. Every day when I drive home I have to pass this tree with about 100 fully ripe mangoes dangling from it's branches. It reminds me of when I go on my weekend bicycle rides through Merritt Island down a road called Tropical Trail. It is so beautiful here. But I am only here temporarily as I leave soon to be stationed in Ft Benning Ga. I am a Infantry Soldier with an artist dying to get out, when I retire from the Army. But I have over 20 years, I am eligible to retire. One day I will move back to the home of the mangoes, Brevard County Florida.

Origin: The mango is native to southern Asia, especially Burma and eastern India. It spread early on to Malaya, eastern Asia and eastern Africa. Mangos were introduced to California (Santa Barbara) in 1880.

Dogwood Tree Flowers


Many species in subgenus Swida are stoloniferous shrubs, growing along waterways. Several of these are used in naturalizing landscape plantings, especially the species with bright red or bright yellow stems. Most of the species in subgenus Benthamidia are small trees used as ornamental plants. As flowering trees, they are of rare elegance and beauty, comparable to Carolina silverbell, Canadian serviceberry, and the Eastern Redbud for their ornamental qualities.

The fruit of several species in the subgenera Cornus and Benthamidia is edible, though without much flavour. The berries of those in subgenus Swida are mildly toxic to people, though readily eaten by birds. Dogwoods are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Emperor Moth, The Engrailed, Small Angle Shades and the following case-bearers of the genus Coleophora: C. ahenella, C. salicivorella (recorded on Cornus canadensis), C. albiantennaella, C. cornella and C. cornivorella (The latter three feed exclusively on Cornus). They were used by pioneers to brush their teeth. The pioneers would peel off the bark, bite the twig and then scrub their teeth.

Magnolia Tree Flower Painting

Magnolia Tree Flower Painting white floral still life 3 original watercolor painting modern and realistic, southern United States tree. Beautiful white flowers bloom on this tree in the south. I will always remember this tree as my grndmother's favorite in Douglas Georgia. Those were the days I will never forget.

In 1703 Charles Plumier described a flowering tree from the island of Martinique in his Genera. He gave the species, known locally as 'Talauma', the genus name Magnolia, after Pierre Magnol. The English botanist William Sherard, who studied botany in Paris under Joseph Pitton de Tournefort, a pupil of Magnol, was most probably the first after Plumier to adopt the genus name Magnolia. He was at least responsible for the taxonomic part of Johann Jacob Dillenius's Hortus Elthamensis and of Mark Catesby's famous Natural history of Carolina. These were the first works after Plumier's Genera that used the name Magnolia, this time for some species of flowering trees from temperate North America.
