The Inspiration of Dark Skies by Artist, Nene Thomas

Ah, probably the first of many poems I will eventually share here to give you a better feel for my creative instincts and what inspires me...

Black Wings (the poem) came about as a response to the beautiful art of Nene Thomas's Dark Skies fairy painting that I purchased at the Ren Fest in Kansas City a few years back... A few days ago, out popped the design of these unusual earrings:

I hope you will visit my shop to see these, and other creations,and enjoy the poetry as well...

Black Wings
Deb Boyle

She's soon to be free... to Be
Transformed and at peace.
Deep within
Her sultry beauty
Rising to her surface
Black Wings unfolding
Gathering courage
She speaks/writes
Soft and true
Of the deep Love
She has for you.
She dreams of
Hematite wings
Enfolding and protecting
Ancient Magick
A New Beginning
Of flying... journeying
Starlight captured
In stunning eyes
For Their Beauty to combine
Creating Forever Light
Wings of black, of hematite
Joining in flight.

and she prays...
For that unreachable star to guide...
Illuminate the path...
Carry them both...
Through the night
Into a new day...
Combined souls...
Free of pain.

She is a dreamer
A poetic soul
Her wings of black
Her dark beauty
(Slightly battle-scarred, a little damaged)
She quietly waits
And she prays
For that Perfect Embrace

For poetry
For kisses
For tears to flow
For lovemaking, and laughter... and tranquility
(Her Gift)
That comes from the soul.

Her black wings waiting...
Poised to take flight...
Her final Prayer?

For lonely and scared to leave... please?

And Love to take its place...
For she only wants to be held...
In that Perfect... Embrace.

Thank you, Nene for the inspiration...
and, as always,
Peace and blessings,
