This is my 2nd attempt as the 1st attempt has photos and words all over the place, up, down and sideways. Thanks to DebMarie and Carmen from my FAT group for detailed isntructions on how to do this right.
First my poem that will go with the postcards.

"Colors" by Deborah Ann Smith
To pick up a pencil and draw with no design in mind,
trying to capture the meaning is so hard to find.
Truly to see hope come alive,
through the struggle we do so strive.
In our eyes sometimes we do fail,
those that love say we prevail.
Yes hope is alive,
we see it all the time,
the colors of you and I and all of mankind.
