((I love exploring new art forms. Recently, I learned about Heliographic Art or Sun Painting. “Sun Painting or Heliographic Art is a process whereby certain fabric paints are applied to fabric and while still wet, objects like stencils, leafs, feathers etc are placed onto the wet fabric. It is then placed in the sun. the outlines of the objects are transferred to the fabric. Setacolor Fabric Paint is what we recommend, the Transparent colors only.” Here is a site which shows a pretty simple step-by-step, and below is another example of an artist’s fantastic work (Franki Kohler). I might have to try it. I have allll these great ideas! 🙂 In the meantime, I was going through some older poems and came across this one. The title was created before I knew about the art-form, and the subject matter is a bit different, but it still fits, I think. Enjoy!))

That wheel of Time, that line of lives,
The thoughts that pause our countless sighs,
The waves that radiate from center,
Student of the Universe, as my mentor.
Such brave, new worlds of sights unseen,
Tomorrow’s light is tonight’s deep dream,
And hypnotized by mundane Malkuth,
We forget to breathe, in the fervor of youth.
Remembering brings us back to now,
And focuses the point of passion’s plow.
Furrowed in the rich soil of purified blood,
Grown in reflections of Id’s Yesod.
None of us know where the mountaintop lies,
Yet, we all find our Path, when we “see” without eyes.
Sensed surrender, guided thoughts we must keep,
And still, this world’s beauty keeps this mind asleep…
