“The universe twinkling
In the deep pool of an eye
The depth yawning out
Far beyond an inky sky.”
Some pieces reach out to the stars and universe as they decipher some sense of belonging to the greater force that binds us all to the divinity source. Some are earth bound to places where the veil between our mortal existence and the greater seems to have the depth of gossamer, where the atmosphere is infused with an essence of grace. Other elements are inspired by people and nature, and some pieces touch on the dark days and the darkness in life, acknowledging it but determining not to be consumed by it.
This inspiring collection encourages to live in the now and appreciate the moment, reflecting on the beautiful simplicities of life which can only be appreciated when we slow down.
