Mask of the Galaxy (inspired by Nina’s skull mask)


searching bloodlines
for resemblances
light and dark
collecting dust
into faces present yet
progressively veiled

Nina’s painted skull mask inspired me to do a collage mask–I haven’t done one in quite awhile.  I bought some books of space photos at a library sale, and I’ve been using them quite a bit for my collages, as you may have noticed.  Except for some blue sky, all the colors in the collage come from space photos of the great beyond.

The poem uses this week’s words from the secret keeper, and thoughts from reading about the Egg Nebula.

    Wow! You not only are a talented artist, but write beautiful poetry as well.

    Here is my link which I was unable to add on secretkeeper’s page for this challenge. I do not have a wordpress account. I use blogger for my posts.
