Excerpt from ‘Matriarch’

“Our mother matriarch 
Her skin awash in panoramic tattoos
Ocean births new life with each wave
She surrenders to contractions of the moon

Her courage enduring suffering and decay
Her dead children fueling new life
Scars and blemishes tell of motherhood
For life and death she is pastor and midwife”

You can find the rest of this poem and many beautiful works in the Anthology, Creation and the Cosmos by Raw Earth Ink. Link below.

It features a handful of works from me and the work of many more talented artists. I encourage you to pick up a copy and get lost in its beauty.
