Ilumine

Ilumunine von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Ravens surge on squally gusts, drawn in childlike simplicity, against the air. Their thin, skeletal lines are propelled, unwilling, at random slants .

Dark clouds rupture, spilling a golden glare, saturating the gloom with luminous light.

Brightening

Brightening von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

A sudden empty silence of
Howled winds, quiet
Sprinkling pattered droplets
Last rain tendrills lit in gold

Silvering sunshines slice at leaden cloud
Shafting downwards
Thick blazing rays
Spotlighting the waters beneath

Awakening

Awakening von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Months of stillness
Detonate
White muffled ground
Paint-bombed with
Colour
Fervent life
No longer willing
To seek permission

Siamese Fighting Fish

Siamese Fighting Fish by Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Having been licensed by the king of Thailand in 1840, Siamese fighting fish were first imported to France in 1892 and to Berlin from Moscow in 1896.

These beautiful, intensely colourful and exotic fish are highly aggressive towards one another and will, as the name suggests, often fight to the death if left together.

A male fighting fish may even try to fight its own reflection in a mirror such is the inclination to fight.

Fallen Warrior

Fallen Warrior (Barbados) von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

The tiny hummingbird has the fastest metabolism of any homeothermic animal and in order to stay alive, it can eat up to twice its body weight in nectar every day. Hummingbirds must continuously eat to avoid starvation and so that they can survive the entire night they go into a hibernative state, to conserve energy. This state of being is called a `Topor´.

Hummingbirds were very important to the ancient Aztecs and they belived that fallen warriors would return to Earth as hummingbirds and butterflies.

Gimlet Sky

Gimlet Sky von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Golden rays pierce
Quick-pin-pricks
Through flat muddy grey
Against the murk, they spread
Like ink on water
Pooling, burgeoning to
A glowing fire-lit haze

Lightness of Being

Lightness of Being von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

The brightening breathes
Birdsong into air
Warmth spreads slow,
blanketing us beneath
Beauty, bittersweet
With transience,
Fills us with light
Then dissolves, bleached,
Into sunshine

Peacock

Peacock von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Rustling petticoats of
Dip-dye blue
Jewel green eyes
Haughty stare observing me
Then vanished
In a flurry of feather

Salutation

Bild Salutation von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Tissue papered petals
Of softest blush
Barely opened
Translucent-new
Bob a greeting
On this warm morning’s breeze
The first small pleasure
Of a new day

Egyptian Blue (CaCuSi4O10)

Bild Egyptian Blue (CaCuSi4O10) von Catherine Pennington-Meyer

Egyptian blue, otherwise known as calcium copper silicate (CaCuSi4O10 or CaOCuO(SiO2)4) is a Pigment which was famously used by the Ancient Egyptians for the decoration of objects. The luminescence of this pigment is so strong that it can even be revealed on objects which nowadays appear unpainted to the naked eye by holding it beneath infrared light. Many believe calcium copper silicate to be the first synthetic pigment in existance, and interestingly, it may also offer high-tech uses in the future. When soaked in water, the pigment `delaminates´ meaning that it splits into layers of nanosheets, which may have potential uses in mobile devices, security applications and biomedicine.
