jPA Universal Dame 4 of 9
"Up rose the merry Sphinx
And crouched in stone no more;
She melted into purple cloud,
She silvered in the moon,
She spired into yellow flame,
She flowered in blossoms red;
She flowed into foaming wave,
She stood Monadnoc's head.
Through a thousand voices
Spoke the Universal Dame;
Who telleth one of my meanings

Is master of all I am."

Here is our transluscent Dame in the heavens, among the stars and other worlds. She no longer has need of her wings, as she is there among universal truth and peace. She is still separate, an ethereal transparent shell that shows the shatters and scars from the life she has lived so far. She sits in a comfortable and empowered pose, shining and sparkling like the stars around her. She is watching the dove of peace flying in; a symbol of where she is and how she arrived there. She looks as if she is her own light source, shining from within rather than just reflecting the light around her.

I created a series of 9 ATC's inspired by the last stanza of Emerson's poem to illustrate the metamorphosis I've gone through during such a very difficult time - a way to help me see the hope in my struggles, the beauty in my brokenness and to rest in the faith that I would rise from this too.

I'll post 3 pages per day for 3 days. This is 4 of 9.
