Illustrating *GodSongs,* a new poetry collection coming from Stephanie Mesler

Several days ago, I shared a poem that will be included in GodSongs, the next collection of poems I will publish, sometime in the autumn of 2015.  Since I posted To An Old Bearded God here, I have begin creating illustrations to accompany the poems.  This is one that will accompany To An Old Bearded God.  I am not yet sure if the book will be printed in color or black and white.  I share it here in both versions.

New Poem: To An Old Bearded God by Stephanie Mesler

I have begun work on the next book I plan to publish, another collection of poems.  These are poems that take mythology (from various cultures) as their shared theme.  The book will include a poem cycle, Lamentations of the Sabine Women, as well as a number of poems born from Judeo-Christian, Greek, Native American and other mythologies.  I plan to illustrate this book myself and hope to release it in October of 2015.  Some of the poems for this book have already been shared in other venues.  A couple have been recorded and shared as podcasts.  

Today, I share the newest poem conceived and written for this upcoming collection.  To be honest, it is not done and will undergo further editing as I read it to others and record it for the companion audio book.  I give you an ode To An Old Bearded God in its second or third iteration.
