Jewels Of Creation

We Are

Sisters of the Morning

Mothers of the Evening

and

Daughters of the Sun.

We Are

delicate shades of Womanhood

perfumed  feminine essence

Princess, Queen and Empress

We

laugh, sing, dance and sleep

amongst our limitless families

bounded the halo of friendship

we each support.

We

speak and reason time without end

so in tune are we

that  unspoken thoughts are shared

through speaking eyes

and welcoming hugs of comfort.

We Are

graceful movers through

this turbulence called life

and provide  a radiant  anchor

to hold a weary sister

above the current of defeat.

Our Richness

for yes we are rich in spiritual love

shines throughout a million eyes

and glows beneath a skin ranging

from the sweetness of night

to the golden kiss of dawn.

I see true beauty

in the face of

all the wonderful women

that I know.

We are

Hope Eternal

We are

Twinkling Inspiration

We are

Regal Determination

We Are

Jewels

Of

Creation

SpiriCulArts – Spiritual, Cultural & Artistic

‘ Face It’ by Imani c 1998 All Rights Reserved

Once upon a time, there was a busy mother of three who juggled so many things that she just sparked with creativity. She wrote poetry, ran creative writing classes, co-edited two poetry anthologies, designed book covers, established a support group for Rastafarian women and even had  her own radio show on a London community station as well as looking after three small but growing individuals. She also  developed a range of artworks using HB pencils and metallic ink pens and participated in several art exhibitions in London.

And yes, this was me.

I chose the name ‘SpiriCulArts’   as I create each picture to celebrate my spirituality and cultural influences. This picture is called ‘Face It’  which was created using metallic  purple and silver ink pens on green neon card.  I had no idea of how this would turn out as all my works in ink start from a  single  doodle, this one started in the top left hand corner whilst I was watching telly.

Now for this picture ‘Whatdoyousee’  I worked on black card using  bronze, silver, pink and blue metallic pens.  The whole process of starting  a picture with a random shape and then experimenting with different effects is really calming.  I love creating images of movement and flow.
