Prometey rejects Pandora’s gift — Pandora’s box with diseases, vices and disasters.
(Engraving on bronze, 2-3 B.C. Musee de Louvre, Paris)

Pandora’s Gift

Bearing Pandora’s gift prominently on her heart
Seared by Vulcan’s reddened, blazing, branding iron
She wore the scars of self-doubt
Her battle coat stained, shredded
By the beak of the very falcon
Who relentlessly clawed, pecked at Prometheus
Vulnerable, chained,
She stood defiant
Until the raven came
Bearing the self-sowing seeds of self-confidence

Inner Ear and Third Eye – Heather Blakey

An expansive inner ear
luminous
third eye
focused
listening for soft sounds of a butterflies wings
water droplets
the relentless ticking of time
touching
seeing
smelling the outside world
sensing
knowing it is time to come

The timing is right
born to be an artist
listening
touching
seeing
smelling
sensing
knowing
foretelling.
