Gifted: the Mysterious Edinburgh Book Sculptures

A cool blog post by Nicholas Rossis about book sculptures.

Nicholas C. Rossis

In 2011, ten exquisite sculptures made from books mysteriously appeared at libraries and cultural institutions across Edinburgh. The first and last were found here at the Scottish Poetry Library, and also a final gift at the end of 2012. The sculptures came with a simple message: ‘in support of books, libraries, words, ideas’. To this day, no one knows how they arrived, and the identity of the sculptor remains anonymous, but their story has traveled all over the world.

The artist’s note ‘… a library is so much more than a building full of books… a book is so much more than pages full of words.…in support of libraries, books, words, ideas…’ forms a refrain running through the all of the works, both celebration and call to action.

See all sculptures and find out more about this unusual mystery on the Scottish Poetry Library’s website.

Breath of Heaven – #poetry

This is a lovely poem by Cynthia Morgan.

Breath of Heaven

Breath of Heaven

Great Light in the Dark

Reaching for the emptiness within

Whispering Mystery where All Life Begins

Breathe in Spectral Quiet

Gently

Guide my Path in Silent Tones

Like Drops of Water upon Vast Stepping Stones

Lead me, Oh Breath that Eternally Glows

Direct my Wandering to the Place where Life Flows.

~Morgan~

Tree of Life – #Inspirational #Poetry

Lovely post from Cynthia.

Tree of Life

Life Pouring

Through Your Embracing Arms,

Spilling over verdant green,

Lush and Magical,

Mystical Charms,

Singing, Dancing,

Like Butterflies of Joy,

Ever New, Ever Giving,

Never aiming to destroy.

Tree of Life,

Breathing Deep,

Water our Thirsty Garden,

Yet, Your Secrets, Quietly Keep.
