Fulks ART

Welcome to my gallery. I hope my art will speak to you and will find its way into your heart and home. Drop me a note–I’d love to hear from you! –Kira

For me, art is a process of discovery. The thrill lies in the unfolding of a blank page into an emotional experience.

MOODY MINDY

Moody Mindy in muddy March
likes to walk around the marsh
with her clunky big ol’ boots
pickin’ carrots from their roots.

Moody Mindy in merry May
likes to swim and splash and spray
in her tiny bathing suit
and two pigtails—
she thinks it’s cute!

Moody Mindy in early June
likes to slide around the dunes
kickin’ sand and flyin’ kites
chasin’ bees before they bite.

Moody Mindy has gloomy times
and changes moods just on a dime
if she gets not what she wants
she kicks and screams
and broods and taunts.

But Moody Mindy most of all
likes to crunch dry leaves in Fall
to roast on fire and go on hikes
and sing old songs with lil’ tykes.

PROM TIME

Just before the strike of midnight
as they closed the Beauty Ball,
there they stood the lonely maidens
waiting for their call.

Upon Returning | וכך בשובי מארץ מולדת

וכך בשובי מארץ מולדת
נפשי קרסה בקירבי
ברחובות סואנים הלכתי בודדת
.עם שקט נורא מסביבי

רציתי לחוש שוב את חום המולדת
לישון ברחם אימי
לקום בבוקר בחייקה היגע
.להתעורר מחלום תהומי

כך בשובי מארץ מוזהבת
ערגתי לשכון בתוכך
ואם אשכחך אותך ירושלים
.תדבק לשוני אל חייקך

Upon returning
from my beautiful homeland
my soul collapsed in my heart,
in busy streets I walk alone
as deafening silence shoots darts.

I long for the warmth
of the place I was born,
and to sleep
with my Mom once again,
to get up in the morning
at dawn with the heavens
and to turn the abyss into glens.

So when I returned from
my sweet golden country,
I longed to dwell within YOU–
And if I ever forget you Oh, Yerushalayim
may my heart forever turn blue.
