The "Artist-Surgeon" inspires poem by Ruth Calder Murphy
This photograph (below) of the "Artist-Surgeon" Lois Cordelia at work on her recent scalpel paper-cut artwork, "Gaze of the Green Man", recently inspired these beautifully crafted lines of poetry by Ruth Calder Murphy (aka Arciemme) - reproduced here, with kind permission from the poet. Please scroll down to read the full poem.
(The same artwork has also inspired a German poet - more details to follow shortly!)
"Shake it Out"
Draw back the sheets -
Push the shadows back
Count the sighs and cares
Lift the Sadness and fly away,
