Angels And Poetry . . .

I sketched this angel Thursday night during my late night creative rush.  So as promised here she is!  I worked very fast and find her to have more emotion in her face than I can typically express when I sketch.  I haven't sketched angels in forever.  I like her.  I tried to keep it loose and even laughed when I started adding scribbles to her wings.  lol

I also wrote a few poems inspired by an exercise in Misty Mawn's book "Unfurling".  I used to write poetry all the time years ago.  Typically late at night, listening to music in the dark, getting out my angst.  It felt good to get back to it.  

Petals in the sky
tell a deeper fire
hands cover the river
on the long journey home
I sit and wait in solitude . .

I am sharing this girl over at Sunday Sketches.  Wishing you a lovely day.
