:fella: Entries

The theme for March's ArtFest was gowns
The entries are below! :la:
Gown of TimeLong ago when her gown was new,
Earth showed it off the universe through.
The blue of her skin offset by bright green –
She was the envy of the galactic scene.
Her flowing green skirt was peppered with flowers,
Each one she’d cultivated for many hours.
About perceptions she cared not a whit,
Leaving her time to crochet or knit
The varied purple peaks that dotted the land,
Having room for some on the glove covering her hand.
Elated at how well her dress was received,
Effulgent rays from without and within she weaved.
Azure skin glowed brightly from dusk ‘til dawn,
Radiantly beaming while over her gown they did fawn.
Time passed ever slowly, its beauty did dim,
Her chances of getting a new dress grew grim.
But she refused to give up, and returned to her craft,
Even though at her first efforts others only laughed.
Fibers stretched taut as she sewed a zigzag seam,
Often wiping her brow as she worked for her dream.
Resplendent she’d be, in a spiffy new skirt –
The DressThe Dress
Tiny flowers in whorls and knots
Embroidered within the beads and finery.
Sleeves and neckline adorned with swirls and whirls.
Mother of pearl, that’s what they were.
Buttons of mother’s pearl
Stitched synchronously side-by-side
Upon the beaded bodice of the gown.

St.Patrick's Day

Tue Mar 17, 2015, 4:00 AM

St.Patrick's Day is a religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. This Feast recognize the bishop Saint Patrick (*385 - ✝ 461).

Originally, the color of Saint Patrick's was blue. But over the years the color changed to green and the Saint Patrick's Day grew. Green ribbons and Shamrocks were worn in the celebration of St. Patrick's Day. Saint Patrick is said to have used a shamrock, a tree-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish, and the ubiquitous wearing and display of a shamrocks and shamrocks inspired designs has become a feature of the day.

The Holiday is celebrated in Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland, Labrador and Montserrat.
It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world; Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.
