Stellanette Poem*

Josephine Wall's Fantasy Art
 

Entrancing
Is Josephine’s Wall’s art
Entrancing.

Light and color wheel like warm mutoscopes
Whilst dynamic designs capture free hearts
To stroke senses with fantasy’s deep dreams.
This is Josephine Wall’s art
Entrancing.

Romantic
Is Josephine Wall’s art
Romantic.

Folk dancing to “Honeysuckle Cottage”
I think of a near-the-picket-fence kiss.
Her art’s brushed in Wisteria Cottage,
This is Josephine Wall’s art
Romantic.

Profound
Is Josephine Wall’s art
Profound.

Beneath roof’s pyramid her palette streams
Epiphany to inspire her viewer’s eyes
To open vistas of wonder and awe
This is Josephine Walls’s art
Profound.

Magical
Is Josephine Wall’s art
Magical.

Butterflies embrace our lifetime’s changes,
I see graced butterflies everywhere with
Bubbles inlayed, each with its own message
To help heal stress with inspired insight.
This is Josephine Wall’s art
Magical.
