Above is a sneak peek of the art works in response to my latest poetry book project – Illuminations: 19 Poems and 1 Story.
This is a collaboration between Gumbootspearlz Press and IVI Designs.
It features several meaningful art works in a doodle style by Ruha and Minaira Fifita and 19 poems and 1 story, by June Perkins.
‘The incredible intuitiveness of June Perkins takes the reader on a flight through spirituality, art, illumination and meditation in this insightful gathering of poetry and story. If we allow our spirit to soar to the heights she beckons, we might all reach new beginnings and destinies. Permit the magic of ‘The Artist’s Riddle’ and ‘Dust’, just as an entree, to glide you into the ‘Slipstream’ of what may lie beyond your own consciousness. Her ‘fragrant words’ beckon and invite you to embrace everything you’ve ever dreamed of and more. So become you, become your reality and become enlightened. Join her on this journey and see where it takes you’
Matilda Elliot, Editor of Illuminations.
More news soon! This book is in production and is my gift to the Bicentenary of the Birth of the Bab.
Whose name do I speak when thinking of the
Broken, but the brother I lost
Window to his childhood
Is a photograph
A portal for mother and father who
Cry for this young man
Of bravery and beauty – crushed, then separated from the
Art of his life
brother is at the window
life becoming art.
