  • Letters From Space

    Letters From Space

    Space. Stars. Earth. Moon. Planet. UFO. Discovery. Adventure. Explore. Alien Worlds. Science Fiction. Time. Mystery. Less than the number of stars in the sky, though greater than the quantity of people needed to move even the heaviest piano, this densely populated typographic design is filled with words and is one of a kind! You can discover some very cool stuff when visiting these shops…


  • Haiku

    Haiku

    I think I've got something!
       What is it?
    
    A haiku.
       God bless you!
    
    No, it's a poem.
       Have you had it long...is it contagious?

    Like the common cold
    It is nothing to sneeze at
    – words may serve to heal

  • The Alphabet Game

    The Alphabet Game

    I recently visited the web site of a friend, where I enjoyed her writings about different letters of the alphabet, and was reminded of a game I used to play many years ago – The Alphabet Game. It’s an easy and fun game to play with two or more people…

    How To Play

    The first person starts the game by saying a word that begins with the letter “A” – such as, Always. The next person restates the word beginning with the letter “A” & adds another word, this time beginning with the letter “B” – such as, Always, Beautiful. Any word can be selected, including names. So, the next person might say – Always, Beautiful, Carla. The words chosen can be completely random, or players may seek to form sentences, as in the following example:

    Always Beautiful Carla Delights Every Friend, Granting Herself Inner Joy. Kind, Loving Mother Nurturing Offspring Perpetuates Quality. Reading, She Thoroughly Understands Voluminous Wordsmanship. Xenial Youthful Zeal.

    Note: as per my experience, having played this game, one may unexpectedly recall the list of words used, several days later 😂🤪

    P.S.: if you visit Carla’s web site, please say “Hello” from Phil. Thanks!

  • Time Together

    Time Together

    Inspired by the writing of a friend: poem of husband & wife over time –


    It seemed like magic when we met
    Emotions we would share
    On the table was everything
    And with each word was care

    To matters of health and sickness
    In wealth or poverty
    Each felt until death do us part
    Was how it had to be

    To work things through with compromise
    And talk into the night
    So when the morning sunlight came
    Our time, again, was right

    Time sure flies when you’re having fun
    Sharing respect and love
    By motto of two lives well lived
    Our blessing from above

  • Terms of Nature

    Typographic Design

  • Walt Disney Quote

    All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

  • Seize The Day

    Seize The Day

    Carpe diem was a phrase used by the Roman poet Horace, published in 23 BC, to express the notion that one should enjoy life while one can. I created this design using Bryce software, depicting a morning sunrise illuminating typography in an imaginary landscape. If you can imagine you might enjoy this design of various merchandise, then visit my shop at Pixels and ArtFlakes. Hope to see you today!


  • Poem About A Writer

    Poem About A Writer

    I have a friend who is a gifted & imaginative writer. She also is often a source of inspiration for me to write poetry, including the following…

    She Writes From The Heart

    Putting pen to paper she writes
    Words flow from her creative mind
    Imagination without limitation
    Always, one of a kind.

    From deep in her heart, filled with love
    Her life experiences teach
    With wisdom and inspiration
    She shares advice but doesn’t preach.

    A humble woman with courage
    She’ll tell you to believe
    She knows the best is yet to come
    Her goals set to achieve.

    I’m so grateful to call her friend
    Yet sometimes my heart skips a beat
    Her eyes and face, so beautiful
    And precious soul, so sweet.

  • A Poem

    A Poem

    Keep On Moving…

    Her eyes look right through me
    As if I wasn’t there
    It’s not the way it was
    In fact, she used to care

    But times have changed, today
    More folks have come along
    No longer a bright light
    She’s found another song

    I guess that I should go
    To find a pretty face
    Another girl to meet
    And welcome to my space

    Be grateful to share smiles
    And break bread together
    Write poems and laugh anew
    Nothing lasts forever

    It sure would be nice, though.

  • Poem of Trees

    Poem of Trees

    With a love of hiking & the great outdoors, I was inspired by the beautiful words of a friend’s writing, “Trees Are The Poem The Earth Wrote To Heaven“, to create this poem:

    Of roots and trunks and branches, too
    And don’t forget each leaf
    With bark that’s better than a bite
    More sun is warm relief

    Let’s not discount the rain
    It’s most important, too
    Each season brings real change
    In sum, that’s how I grew

    The sky above has quite a view
    With colors close to ground
    Each forest has so many trees
    Go hike, and look around
