spark thoughts

Sparks and dots
and thoughts and spots.

Solar candle day 2



The wax is only slightly sweating, maybe if I put less in and shorten the container it might melt.



less in this one




is actually able to dribble out...



... and make a candle...

and the start of another.

Oh Rabbit

Oh Rabbit
I’m trying to sweep.
What’s the matter?

Is your cage too neat?

Dirt And Toes

Twinkle, twinkle
Dirt and toes
Little seeds
And working modes.

Squirting water in the sun
The more you do
The more is done.

Twinkle, twinkle toes

Will grow.


Solar Candles Day 1











Pictures of  trying to melt wax with the sun so I can make candles out of the sun melted wax, the small amount of wax i collected cooled down too quickly for pouring it into another container to make a candle.  I like the idea of making these in the middle of summer using only the power of the sun to melt the wax and then using them in the middle of winter when its cold, dark and miserable to almost light up the winter with the summer sun.  

A work in progress.

Magpie bones

Magpie, Magpie
picking at the bones
didn't you like my hand baked scones ?





Bear in water

Polar bear, polar bear
stick out your tongue
The sun's too hot
and the arctic's gone.
