Artist's Description

48cm x 30cm mounted silk part of an archetype collection

Did she go willingly?
No one will know
Into the deep where
mortals daren’t go
Into the dark where
no sun shines
Into the depths
these diamond mines.

Trapped for what felt
like eternity
She saw things
her eyes couldn’t see
In Hell’s realm
she couldn’t hide
She was confronted
by the shadow side

Scary and messy
lost under ground
Screaming is pointless
there is no sound
Facing the demon
holding his hand
resigned acceptance
in this foreign land

Accepting Hade’s
mysterious embrace
Realizing this is
a magical place
Magic happens
in the dead of night
Divine conception
with a euphoric fight

New life appears
after gestation
Trusting and knowing
without hesitation
Even with no light
things start to grow
Patience is
a necessity though

For appearances are deceiving
in the dark
There’s much activity under
what appears stark
Coals under extreme
excruciating pressure
Are forever transformed
into real treasure

And in the spring
she breaths fresh air
Born a new
with a knowing stare
Out of the chaos
was it really that vile?
She is re-born
with a secret smile

This is the story of Persephone
Hers is the story of you and me
For when we find ourselves
in Hade’s dark realm
We loose control
no longer at the helm
The world, as we know it
is being re-arranged
Know,for the better
we will be ever changed.
