Essence of Light

This poem was written in response to the above picture which is reproduced here with the kind permission of the artist, Kimberly Dawn Sanders.

Spread wide your arms

and let the wings unfurl,

soar into your essence of light,

cradled by the loving energy

rippling through the river of the universe,

weaving through the tapestry of time...

And feel the freedom

of your soul...

What do YOU see in the picture?


  1. Hi, Helena,
    Wow! This is a beautiful picture and poem.

    I stopped by to let you know that VBT - Virtual Book Tours is now VBT - Writers on the Move.

    The new address is:

    I noticed you are following us.


  2. Thank you, Karen, for the comment and the compliment. The picture was designed by one of my Myspace friends who is very talented, although I believe it's all self-taught. Thanks for letting me know your new blogspot address.


  3. Fantastic poem, Helena! It makes me feel like painting it-I've come up with an idea...how about my illustrating one or more of your poems? I'd love to contribute!


  4. Thank you, Liana, for your comment. It's much appreciated! I think you illustrating one or more of my poems would be a lovely idea, although I know how busy you are and I wouldn't want you to spend a lot of time doing this! But the idea of doing a combined project really appeals to me. Do you have a website with examples of your artwork, just out of interest?
