Echo Muses 10.

Pinched Love


Hooked to one another;
Waited for a swooning dream.
Wrinkles took the place of sparkling ecstasies;
Bruised in moods…
Capricious needs.
Only he can ever love you with truth.
Only she can dream up the blues.
Waste away in cloud chance.
Wanting to skip forward to number ten.

Poem and Art: Naomi Ruth Waldschmidt

    “Angel number 10, when it presents itself in your life repeatedly, is an indication that you are supported by the guardian angels in the form of dreams, intuition, beliefs and perceptions. You are advised by the angels to follow your instincts and act affirmatively on your ideas”

    • I can believe that. A psychic told me not to long ago that I’m surrounded and protected by angels and ones that have passed over. They converse with me in dreams and a different kind of language. Thoughts and symbols all around us.

    Wonderful, both art and words. The artwork is amazing, reminds me of Quentin Blake and Tim Burton’s…but is all you! The number ten for me made me think of Hopscotch for some reason.
    Another great piece of work!!

    • Wow! That’s awesome to be pegged similar as those two artists. Thank you, thank you! It could be seen as hopscotched on clouds. I was thinking about the cloud nine saying and I wanted to these two characters to go to a higher level…the tenth cloud. If that makes any sense.
