For you Athena
I named my baby, my beloved
My Pallas Athena Ailsa
To be strong and brave and great
To be like you.
I have been yours for years now
honouring you through my child
through my Art, my Writing, my Sewing – I have been Constant.
I look for the Owl
Seek her wisdom and beauty
Her stillness and stealth
Find her in our oak trees
The Shee-oaks that line the cliffs down to our bay
When I sew new clothes at my table of Creativity
Of Art and Writing
I honour you
As I sew and make beautiful clothes for my family
I am with you, as a part of you
Your wisdom and grace and courage are mine as I create.
Now, I ask you
To help me in my quest, my Art.
To find a home for my work amongst the wider world
For my words to reach the stars
To be free to Write, to Create and live in my world of wonder and imagination. (Images courtesy Google Images)
