your scars are beautiful


UNEARTH  MY  SOUL
*

I  WAITED  FOR  YOU 
IN  THE  STARLING  MISTS


🌠

Y O U R   S C A R S   A R E   B E A U T I F U L


your scars are beautiful
your strangeness embraced
your darkness channels
the breath of stars
your flaws make you real
your heart is a deep poem
my soul longs to know
you ( we ) are broken
you are beautiful
just as you are
your wounds make me feel less lonely
I understand myself better
for knowing your silent world
and the hidden pain you shape into light
birthing dreamscapes of neverending wildflowers
you carry the storms
so that others may heal

1 part sky, 1 new moon ~



1 part sky, 1 new moon


☀ ♌ 🌑

note to self

when feeling lost
take
1 part sky
1 new moon
fold them both into your heart
push deeply
until the stars burn themselves in
and like seeds of new life
they will conjure worlds (you need to go to)
places that belong only to you
hold onto them, every single flashing seed
even as hurricanes set in
let them burrow inside
till your tongue tastes of lightening
remember above all
you are the fire ( your blood sparks wildfires of courage)
you are the sky ( and it opens to all sacred realms)
you are the moon ( and your bones carry her love)
and soon you will become the earth
(solid, grounded, rooted, embedding life-force within; you are home)

the changeling winds will bless the dark things with flight
they will escape into freedom and healing
the gardens will die inward and rebloom a new book of spells
where each tree and flora speak their ancient song
and birds can sense that your soul has grown wings
and they will teach you how to harvest from your deepest root
and how to ride on spherical wisdom with instinct and bliss
sometimes there will be rain, madness and strange storms
but you will be able to feel the sweetness in the changes
and the bright galaxies flooding in
there will be blessings born of pain and hurt
and your body shining in all colors; will be summoned to dance
unclothed and free

nothing can stop
a summer full of lions clawing down the roaring sun
or a grateful heart that births a meadow of tigerlilies
your nights will drip with serene spells of love
and profound renewal will begin to spill over your being like a waterfall
you will not shake, nor be afraid to live
and your Solar Return will strengthen you to radiate with victory
magic restored,  witchery in bloom
you are unchained
and wild
as nature
you are both bruised and beautiful
and you have found your song to sing.
~victoria 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.
