Kester Raven's Daughter

Raven's Daughter by Denise Kester

Monotype collage, 2012

"Raven's daughter likes to stir things up, especially after a long and tiresome winter. One early Spring day she was out on a walk when she caught a whiff of a southern breeze. The warm scent of Summer was on that breeze. She could taste it on her tongue. It sparked her imagination and before she knew it, real sparks were coming out of her hands. She looked around and didn't see anyone, so, she began starting fires and then putting them out, just for her own amusement. Unfortunately the wind picked up and her fires were getting out of control. It was about this time that Raven caught up with his daughter. He could be heard giving her a stern lecture on the perils of playing with fire. But if you saw him you could see that he was smiling and from the sparkle in his eye you could tell that he was proud of his clever and resourceful daughter, so much like himself."
