Homage to Pallas-Athena – goddess of Wisdom, Warfare & Art

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)

    The images were great – love that lady of justice statue.

    I like this very much. I so very much feel your last line of wish to be free to write, create & live in your world of wonder & imagination. To think, we have a lifetime and so much time is spent on working, working. Oh sigh. BUT I WANNA WRITE!!!
