With words and images, I am telling my story. Through art, through sculpture, I am remembering HERstory...

urge me not to yearn

- mixed media from a series -

"Bind the fragments of my heart
    with hope and peace
As the butterfly soothes the petal
    of a flower soon to cease.

Draw forth the strength
   beneath woe's dark shade
As moonlight breaks through the trees
   of a verdant, secret glade.

Urge me not to yearn
   for that which I cannot have
And instead trust Your wisdom
   to provide a gentle salve.

Show me Your love
   in a young deer's sable eyes
As I enter the grassy lair
   where tranquility lies."

- Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave, from her beautiful book "Healing Light: Thirty Messages of Love, Hope, and Courage"
