Blue Venus

Please
take
my
hand

~

It’s
time
to
go,

 ~

Inside
the
sea

~

of
passion’s
flow;

~

To
dance
on
waves

~

and

~

taste
the
tide,

~

 Invade
the
space

~

where
love
collides;

~

Submerged
beneath
the

~

clouds
and
moon,

~

Where
water
sings

~

a
sultry
tune;

~

 At
last
I’ll
kiss

~

the
heart
of
you,

~

and
fall
into

~

my
deepest
Blue.

To offer creative inspiration to a fellow-artist
seems, to me, one of the richest gifts
we might ever give, or receive.

This gorgeous “art gown”  entitled, Blue Venus was designed and created  by the very talented and brilliant Resa McConaghy of Queen’s end.

Resa is a professional costume designer, and this is her 4th in an exciting series of “art gowns” featured on her blog.

She explained that she was inspired to design this one for me, after enjoying many of my writings and photos here, featuring sea, sky and love. I could not be more touched and honored, and thus wanted to share this magnificent gown, fit for a goddess, with all of  you today. My poem, above, flowed from my pen and heart, almost instantly, after seeing Blue Venus for the first time.  Clearly Resa must  have intuitive powers, only having asked me about my favorite colors – and creating this fantasy gown that I truly adore.

Hope you enjoyed, and be sure to visit Resa at her Blog, Blue Venus « Queen’s end  to see  more photos of this stunning gown, and to learn additional details about the birth of her masterpiece. Thank you beautiful Resa ~  I will forever cherish this most incredible gift of your art.

Much Love Always

Remedy: Passion-Flower

heart crawls…

from behind encaging ribs

washed by rain

scorched by light

…all just to be cleansed

of its aching pain..

to be soothed with

the kisses of your words

…to emerge from its hollow night…

blossoming into….

your

intricate, powerful

divinely delicate and trembling

passion-flower…

Warm Thanks to Lady Day of  Just A Girl With A Heart & A Pen for permitting me to pair her wonderful and impassioned poem entitled, Passion-Flower with my feature image today. I was awed by her words when she posted it, and then set out on a mission to find this enchanting passiflora to photograph for this special post.

Hope you enjoyed!

Much Love,
Robyn Lee

Dance

Wild creatures
Dancing to chants of  balmy evening wind
Graceful yet exotic
Uninhibited
I watch in awe
