Painted Wings: Part II

Ode to a Butterfly

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you hide in the shadows?
Spread wide your wings, let your heart sing
And come dance with me in the meadow

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you fear?
You'll never stray, I'll lead the way
Just follow the path, I'll be near

Butterfly, oh butterfly, have you no hope?
Drink of the sun, our life's just begun
Thro time's hills and valleys we'll lope

Butterfly, oh butterfly, dare you to dream?
On our hearts we depend, shall we follow the wind
And consign to the fates grander scheme?

-Sheri Walters Hockman-

Ginger: Part II

Following the red hair theme I decided to highlight a photoshoot when I was an (unnatural) red head. The shots were inspired by the jungle and I absolutely love the contrast my hair has against the tropical greenery. I wore a pale yellow dress to balance the vibrancy and add romance to the shots. I played around with a few emotions throughout the shoot, but my favorite is the last image. My friend Stephanie, the photographer, captured my hopeful spirit. It was definitely a successful shoot and we had fun walking barefoot through our own personal jungle.

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet
and the winds long to play with your hair

"When she walked... she stretched out long and thin like a tiger, and held her head high to look over the grass, as if she were treading the jungle"
