I took up my pen with the precise point

And permanent black ink

Incising meticulously

Every freckled feather

Her haunches blossomed under my hand

I, overcome under the pendulous brugmansia secreted there

My ink staining, rounding, etching, shading

The angel in my midnight garden.

Angel Trumpets and their heady scent are magnificent in gardens. They're at their best in the evening.

Thank you, Art for your poetic response!

JMAC and Harp, this is an amazing tattoo... on someone else.;-) Link is fixed I think.

Jon, sometimes a one word comment with an exclamation point is just the thing!

Brugmansia is described in Wikipedia as having a woody structure, with pedulous, not erect flowers.
