"Where the Wild Things Grow..."

Groggily she awakens from
being sequestered between the stark white pages
in the depths of my Zen Journal.
Seeded from the black ink of a trusty Pitt pen
and
shimmering with wild metallic highlights
she reappears here...
impetuous...flipped in persona and hue...
rebellious...
all passionate, mysterious
and dramatic!
:)

“Every woman is a rebel,
and usually in wild revolt against herself.”
~Oscar Wilde

Margaret, this design is wonderful and so is your beautiful prose. Loved the rabbit running all over the garden and posing for the cameras like a prima donna.
Thanks for all the recent comments on my varied posts. Your kind thoughts are always so appreciated.

Oh my Margaret how talented you are. The poetry is wonderful, the artwork as always wonderful also.
Love the last Oscar Wilde quote. Reminds me of myself.
Happy Tuesday.

Very nice design. The quote from Oscar Wilde sounds like a man. We are only in revolt from ourselves in the sense that we give in to the men in our lives too much and lose ourselves in the process. Later in life we try to reclaim ourselves and they claim we are revolting.

Oscar says it well...frightenly well.

I like the way part is colour, part is white over the delicious wine background. So Vibrant.
