A Love Like That

The Sun Worshiper (Stacy Wills, 2013)

Even after all this time
the Sun never says 
to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens
with a love like that -
it lights the whole sky.

At Twilight

At Twilight (Stacy Wills, 2013)
alcohol inks on clay board + sacred altering

At twilight, 
when everything 
softens, the stark lines 
that once so easily 
defined our world, 
become blurred,
and all we took for
 granted in the light
 now, we strain to see.
At twilight,
when everything
softens - our gaze
must soften as well,
for only then
will we be able 
to truly see aright -
the wonder...the glory...
the essence
of all that is.
