Autumn's flame


Autumn's Flame 
burns bright




Autumn's Wing
*
Summer gently falls
b e n e a t h
the Ancient breath of
 Autumn`s wing
a  new world summons
a labyrinth of seeds
soaking down the moon's release
 earthen womb full of mourning doves
Amber veils shimmering above
swallows circling the falling leaves
pressing stars between their beaks
upon the waters,  feathers drift on
echoing through like haunted swans 
wild branches 
carved like thrones
of crimson oak and mossy stones
ruby leaves and parchment poems
calling all the forest souls
bleeding colors, shining like bones
till the white ravens
falls quietly alone
*~victoria pettella~*






Autumn Poems





Summer Kings
and Autumn Queens
Nature dancing
t h e   I n b e t w e e n
still much fire, light and breath
till Winter sweeps it's spell of death
but only hidden for a time
the Earth asleep with paling light 
the mask of dreams
will fall
a w a y
as mother
r e w e a v e s
the darkened maze
the Spring will rise 
a torch 
of silver rain
the sun will shatter 
the sleeping cage
where death once lived
the light will now reign
the flora and forests
shall awaken again
~victoria pettella~
*magic prose*















Visual elixirs~
Blue Morning Glory, Red Maple Leaf and Sunflower





Birch Spirit in shadow
and draped in many moons







Each season
lights a sacred flame
to embody all
the gifts of change 
wind
water
fire 
& earth
enchants the Spirit 
of rebirth
Spirals shift
Magic ignites
the Eternal Ether
 of Infinite Light
~victoria pettella~
*magic prose*
















Wishing you the 
magic and beauty
during this 
deeply transformative season
Victoria



Happy Autumn

cosmic offerings ~ aura and fire

inbreath ~ outbreath
aura ~ mist
cosmic ~ fire

here
there
in the blink 
of beautiful eyes

gentle dragon 
she was last seen
dragging stars across 
a morphing sky
soft and serene
d y i n g
beneath the rainfall
and crumbling leaves
lining 
the swolllen earth
with a final kiss
the apple broke 
into a five-pointed
s  e  e  d
scarring my bones 
with light,
 wisdom
and the breath
of her immortality

eternal-spiral~skin
one night of fireflies and wine I wandered
through the tall sweetgrass
my skin fell away into colored shards of mica
the sky swallowed me whole
as though I were an offering
I felt the cosmic mists
take hold and whisper to me within
dancing through like wild dragonflies
a divine collision,  spirals and tails
sliding down an endless spell of Moons
i carry the memory as a child now gone
and still I cling to molten stars
still i dream of worlds afar
I never could quite see your face
but it has always belonged to my heart
it carved a sacred meadow through
 my soul
and returned me
through spheres of pinks and gold
shimmering skins
fastened with light
a vessel pours me back to life
starry elixir
stitched into my hand
I awake beneath the Birch, glass and sand.

The Blue Tree

lost world
blue tree
a place I used to know

then a bird flew through my mind
and I was free to go

lost world, blue tree
path without end
the amber bird took my tear
 the forest began to mend

lost world, blue tree 
a place I used to roam
a stormy bird
tore at my cage
and gathered up my bones

lost world, blue tree
buried my heart alive
Autumn  bird scraped away the dirt
so I could feel the light

lost world, blue tree
the sun began to breathe
drowning bird sang her spell
to enchant a world for me

lost world, blue tree
the darkness moved away
black bird released her wings
so I would no longer be afraid

lost world, blue tree
my mind quelled and free
swollen bird
saved my life
gave all her breath to me


lost world blue tree
a place I used to know
a broken bird
flew through my mind
so I could get back home
~victoria pettella~


* the power of your spirit is immeasurable
never give up , the strength within you 
will always take you back home*
dedicated to anyone who has ever climbed the blue tree
*
Wishing you a beautiful day

I keep you in the mists of my memory

i keep you in the mists 
of my memory

there 
we can dream
there 
you will be safe

I keep you in the mists
of my memory
and i will hold you 
there
till I am 
erased

dreams seeking light


Many leaves
came from the silent branch
many branches
came from the broken tree
many trees 
came from the forgotten root
many roots 
came from the hidden seed
many seeds
were once  invisible dreams
dreams tossing as they were sleeping
dreams spinning as they were weaving
dreams intuiting what was not yet there
dreams still seeking 
a world of light
~vctoria pettella~

seeds of creativity

Themes of transformation & transiting through cycles of life, breath, death & healing seem to seep into my work. Nature, creation & the ever-morphing seasons are a constant guiding force & inspiration.

Creative Encounters & Kindred Spirits

I love to meet and connect with fellow creatives! I have a deep appreciation for all artists, creative thinkers, unique souls.
While my nature is mostly introverted and I thrive as a hidden -solitaire, I have found connecting with other creative-spirits to be profoundly nourishing and deeply magical in ways my soul understands. To those I have met along the way that have enriched my life with your art-music-writing-creations-passion-energy-open-mindedness....I thank you immeasurably ! and to those I have reconnected with..thank you for giving me a sense of community in a world I always felt on my own in. Thank you for these creative encounters, they have transformed me.
