Will You Be My Friend? by TeaPhotography Will You Be My Friend? by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to my good friend Sarah :iconcowboyb0b: for her Birthday which was Feb. 17th. I was away for a while, which she understands, but my wishes are just as heartfelt! :heart:

Sarah has been one of my longest friends here on dA- which means I've known her for about five years now- hard to believe! ;)
She's extremely talented in various ways, but it was her fantastic writing that originally drew me to her work. :heart:

This photo was taken at the wildlife game park, that I went to, on my own birthday...
This pregnant goat was just awesome! She followed us around the whole time!
She didn't do anything annoying like nibble on our clothes... ;)
she simply kept looking up at us with this beautiful expression,
as if asking "Will You Be My Friend?"


Feature of Sarah's work:
The Springtime PainterI long for the yellows
losing myself in a mustard meadow
a patch of gold in the natural quilt
   strewn over the hills
an ocean of carefree memories
no worry of mudstained jeans
   or wind-mussed hair
chasing the start of something new,
   something as beautiful
as weeds growing in a sun-washed field.
I miss the whites
being invigorated by paper-white, 
   paper-thin petals
fragile messengers brightening
  frosted mornings
aromas of ice-flowers that warm a static home
  fresh laundry and strong coffee
  the smoke of a wood burning stove
the arrival of sun as a new day begins
I desire the pinks
the hearts blooming on bare branches
a romantic snowfall blanket
   as individual peta

Things I Misssix pm sunsets lift blackbirds from their lines
like ominous clouds, they swoop
a silhouette painting by winged performers
against the orange-red sky
coyote lullabies
ferocious yips sung along
low howls that touch the soul
calming the night with echoes
that luxury of heat in the presence of cold
going to too many philosophy classes
has only left me 
more lost. 


Dear Sarah,
Thank you for being such a good and supportive friend for so long...
I wish you the very best in this next year, in all you do. :heart:
Your Friend, Tea

So sweet - animals with expressions like that are just begging to be hugged! (at least in my mind.... :laughing:)

:iconteaphotography:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013  Professional General Artist
Aw, thanks, and YES, I agree... they seem to be begging to be hugged!
I think it would be okay with certain animals, but probably not all of them. :O_o:

So cute... but generally they nibble at everything (at the zoo close to my place, they sell popcorn for the animals, and the goats go crazy when they smell it, lol). :D

:iconteaphotography:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thanks! :aww:
And you are right, generally they DO nibble.. like at clothing!
This is something that has bothered me about goats, like when I was little... and there were animals there with us that were trying to nibble!
The wallabies and the peacocks!!!

And there were other goats, too.

But this particular goat stayed with us the whole time, but never tried to nibble. :D
