Gumnut Babies

Flying pigs and mermaids

A hand-drawn colored pencil illustration of gumleaves with the heads of gumnut babies peeping over the top from behind the leaves.
Gumnut Babies — artwork & photo by writer with apologies to May Gibbs

pigs fly high
pots of gold
via rainbows
unicorns dance
in ferny glades
mermaids play
bask on rocks
at sundown
