WAXING POETIC

This is a magical poem by D.H. Lawrence… we hope you enjoy, and admit your own angels.

Song of a Man Who Has Come Through

Not I, not I, but the wind that blows through me!
A fine wind is blowing the new direction of Time.
If only I let it bear me, carry me, if only it carry me!
If only I am sensitive, subtle, oh, delicate, a winged gift!
If only, most lovely of all, I yield myself and am borrowed
By the fine, fine wind that takes its course through the chaos of the world
Like a fine, an exquisite chisel, a wedge-blade inserted;
If only I am keen and hard like the sheer tip of a wedge
Driven by invisible blows,
The rock will split, we shall come at the wonder, we shall find the Hesperides.

Oh, for the wonder that bubbles into my soul,
I would be a good fountain, a good well-head,
Would blur no whisper, spoil no expression.

What is the knocking?
What is the knocking at the door in the night?
It is somebody wants to do us harm.

No, no, it is the three strange angels.
Admit them, admit them

Group Same Styles

Anytime a lot of the same something is gathered together it gives a high impact statement around a theme. Imagine an entire wall filled with framed family photographs. Seeing everything together creates a themed look, tells a history at a close-up aspect, and creates visual patterns standing aback. Collections of the same style can be a theme, like all insignias, or all crosses, or everything the same metal, etc. Or, they might be all the same style by design like a collection of matching pieces from earrings to necklaces, bracelets and rings. Consider a collection of all the same insignia versus a collection of all different insignias.

Waxing Poetic recognizes that good relationships are far more precious than any objects (even the pretty and delightful ones), and deserve ongoing care and recognition.

patti-headshotI love my job. Over the past years, as I’ve had the opportunity to interact with our many customers, retailers, and employees, I’ve come to realize that Waxing Poetic is not merely a company, but, perhaps, a movement; one that embraces every moment of every day. One that asks us to be thankful for all that we have both individually, and with one another. As a business owner I know that customers are brought into a world in which we have created. They bring their life and poetry to us, and then a magical thing happens, a connection. Waxing Poetic provides a customer with a reflection of their life and a world that lives and breathes long after their purchase. Waxing Poetic, made that significant moment possible. We make and sell jewelry, but behind it, there has always been this intangible “thing.” Perhaps it’s this very connection. Our customers bring their stories, filled with love, recognition, and realizations, and we interpret that life into our art, into Waxing Poetic. This is the place of poetry, and it exists in every moment. Our life’s work tries to come closer to the most soulful expressions of who we are. Our work is our life, and our life is a Poetic one. It is in this authenticity that we find our family: a family of seekers, of people who realize they are on an incredible journey, and who want to celebrate it by living a movement that allows some part of each of our souls to soar. We are thankful that you share your own life’s paths (and poetry) with the larger narrative of Waxing Poetic every day. We need each other like we need air, and there is nothing more beautiful, or poetic.

Wishing you true connections and much abundance, Patti
