Shannon Donovan-Littleton. (please visit her blog)
I've known Shannon, online since late 2008, I think I may have first found her on RedBubble then later on FaceBook, or visa-versa, who remembers the details? It was her prose that really got to me though, and recently she has been posting what she refers to as "snippets" (...what I call 'teasers') from a soon to be published work.
Over the last couple of years Shannon has been kind enough to allow me to pair some of her prose with my images, which in my world adds an amazing dimension to the imagery, here is the latest example...
"What is it about you...precious soul....
that compels me to crave to swim in your veins.
To taste your skin and giggle in your lungs.
To be naked in the summer of your warm breath.
And to die happily in the gaze of your every aching sunset..."
(excerpt from the Epilogue, 'The Fabler's Muse' (05-2011))
And from an earlier work...
|A Yearning Air|
Wind tossed and pierced pure
descending down from heavenly realms,
to where you last left me blooming,
and where want begins to whisper again.
My wandering comfort now lies within,
the timeless and allegorical lines,
we gingerly scribed upon the rocks,
and where in pure delight,
our dwelling time pulsed.
The mesquite whispers warmly here.
Casting their blessings through my hair,
and knowing pure love,
is the deepest practice we manifest;
and with which I am now satiated.
My innermost nest now rests,
while you are buoyant and away.
My heart pirouettes with incredible visions,
of our warm shared breath,
that fed us abundantly for a while..
