my angel of avignon micron pen on sketchbook page 5/14/06
Again and Again
Again and again, however we know the landscape of love
and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names,
and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others fall:
again and again the two of us walk out together under the ancient trees, lie down again and again among the flowers,
face to face with the sky.
Rainer Maria Rilke
I did an sketch of an angel inspired by the one we found in Avignon, France.... I took this photo of the most beautiful angel in the summer of 03 when it was devilishly hot!
The lovely poem by my favorite poet, replaces the word of the day.
Happy Mother's day to all!
