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.

Wishing you the beauty of Summer's Veil

"Wandering through the towers of goldenrod and sorcerer's violet"

The summer veil is such a perfect capture of that dreamy, slightly sleepy feel of middle summer. Your words are sheer magic.

I imagine a Gormenghastian landscape of towers of goldenrod, purple spires, and you.

Thank you! x

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.
