invisible


And now here is my secret

It is very simple.

It is only with the heart 
that one can see clearly.

What is essential
is invisible 
to the eye.

Summer's Veil~ where I have been lately




Where I have been lately...




Dreaming with the foxgloves along Summer's veil
Reading  poems under the ghost-bride of moonlight
Chanting as all wild-hearted witches do in the forest
Wandering through the towers of goldenrod and sorcerer's violet
Offering my soul to the rain-soaked gardens
Swallowing the sunlight in the mossy labyrinth-womb
Standing still in the bones of the blue night
Listening to the creatures and leaving offerings
Tangling into branches searching for wisdom
Sleeping in the ivy and waking against the bark
Harvesting mother's greenery and weaving new seeds
Letting my spirit dance with the neverending cosmos
Finding my freedom in the season of light
~victoria pettella~








where I've been lately







Where I have been lately..

Living fully , wide awake
In the heart-space of nature's lullaby
In the ancient belly of deep magic
Wandering the ebb and flow of water
chasing fireflies and storms
Breathing out the acorns and oak
Feasting on the silence in floral caves
Being, connecting, communing
Trusting and shape-shifting
Like a bright flower weathering,  meeting the end
Untainted by death,
Knowing that the fallen petals and seeds will return again.

SOULMOONS


we drift with breath
with mist
with moon
the dust of souls
we cycle through
still woven
by season, love and bloom
immortal hearts
forever new

Spinning spiders
casting veils
across the ghostly daffodils
Summer Solstice wears his crown
while Queens of Autumn carry down
the chanting Moon of Dragon-fire
into the icy crystal spires

The Kiss of life and death we hold 
till Spring reveals her maiden-throne
Ravens peck through 
the dark-glass of night 
where soulmoons search 
for their lost light

Shining Owls sheer at the seams
where tears release the world unseen
bound with breath
with Crescent and Loon
Weaving love into their tombs
the dust of souls
we cycle through
Eternal Hearts
become Renewed

dreaming in the light





























































































With the seasonal shift into Spring
there is new energy
new vibration/sound/frequency
we are gaining new light
gaining new consciousness
attuning to the essence of beginnings..
magic is awake 
and nature is shimmering to life
the seeds from long ago 
become realized 
and appear in many new forms
reminding us
of the neverending cycle of creation
the spirit of regeneration, hope and renewal
the breath of new life-force
awaiting each moment 
dreaming in the light
~victoria pettella~










Wishing you all an amazing Spring
to the sacred spells
of this newest season
cherish each treasure you find...

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.
