a literary journal published by the Black Earth Institute dedicated to re-forging the links between art and spirit, earth and society
A wooden palette of thick primary colors distilled from an alchemist’s retort device. Yes, two egg shaped globes supported by thin iron rods.
A being as much owl as woman. Seated at a drafting table she draws a song bird with a pen bound by a cord to a heart shaped violin she wears around her feathered neck.
Her raised human hand holds a triangular glass magnifier as was used by Sir Isaac Newton.
Beneath the drafting table her bare human feet gleam damp from the bath. A being as much woman as owl.
Once passed through the magnifier moonlight causes inked birds,
to lift up to air and live.
