Inspired by Nox Arcana – Take 1

We’ve found thee

Little mortal

We surround thee

Whispers in the wind cry unto thee

Our names are zephyr, breath and air

We will guide thee

Don’t be scared

Little mortal

Thou fain to see

The terrors that dost follow thee

Keep away from the water’s edge

And we’ll keep thou safe

The winds we pledge

Turn not away from our winsome calls

Turn back to us or thou shall fall

The cliffs are rendering nearer and near

Be warned little one

Dost thou hear?

Nay, ye do not and now you fall

Into ice cold waters creating a crimson pool

But we don’t give up

Nay not us

We’ll call to mankind from dusk till dawn

Never ceasing

Never forlorn

It is our duty

It is our pride

We are the winds and we are the tides

And our voice we never hide

 

Inspired by Nox Arcana after listening to their music from the album “carnival of lost souls”-“cries in the night”.  This is something that I pictured when hearing the music and I put it into a prose.

Cold Sands (introduction)

Windy, grey and cold was the weather that day, the cold wet sand beneath Rebecca’s bare feet felt oddly comforting to her. Trying to warm herself in vain with folded arms rubbing her shoulders, standing in nothing but a renaissance style under-dress, she watched the horizon intently as though focusing on something approaching, but there was nothing and nor was she really expecting there to be.
She could hear them coming behind her – her family and her maidservant, calling out to her to get inside and put some clothes on, as she might catch her death of cold; but she looked on and the nearer they got, the further towards the sea she walked as though hypnotized by some demonic siren.
Intrigued to find out what happens next? Like this post and if I get 10 likes by the 20th November I will make a story for you.
Thank you, enjoy!

feelings 1

I am trapped in a loveless world

When will my chains start to unfurl?

I feel though I’m here for eternity

Lost within a hapless sea

Watercolor mermaid 1st attempt

1st attempt at watercolor mermaid scene

1st attempt at watercolor mermaid scene

 

For the last 6 months I have attempted to teach myself art, sketching and painting particularly with watercolors.
The image that you see is my first ever attempt at creating a watercolor mermaid under the sea scene and my first ever attempt at under-painting a picture.
This image is unfinished and I am afraid to say it will stay that way because I mixed the shades of colors that are used on the paper and my fiance Paul knocked over the palette when getting it for me and it was all lost and I am very reluctant to attempt to try making more of the same shades of color as I don’t want to completely ruin this picture.
There are some blemishes to the image, for example the mark of yellow on her left inside elbow amongst other things, but I cannot repair these without severely impacting on the color scheme, as I cannot guarantee I can mix the same shades again.
I am a self-taught artist that have only really been practicing twice a month any kind of art-work for about a year now, as I mentioned before my attempt at watercolors started about six months ago.
In my personal opinion, starting to teach yourself artwork, particularly sketching/drawing shouldn’t really start at how-to-draw books, because that never worked for me, instead, trusting my own eye works better and reading books based on painting; that is of course if you eventually want to move onto painting your images.
I have been getting a lot of comments from my immediate family and friends that they believe I have a natural talent for art considering that I spend less than five hours a month practicing; personally I don’t see it, I see too many imperfections in my work and I cheat. For example, I have hidden one of the mermaid’s hands in this picture because I couldn’t make it look as good as her right hand and the paper was thinning with all the erasing I had to do.
I have a gallery at deviantart.com if you wish to see more pictures that I’ve done as well as my budding artist four year old son, Henry, some of his best work are up there, which reminds me that I must add his version of a toucan up later on.

chocolate and loyalty

With my chocolate I sit back and relax as it melts in my mouth

The cocoa is bitter; my fleece blanket wraps me warm

As I look out of my window at the raging storm

I smile as I am safe and snug, cuddle my knees with my arms

Smiling at my own thoughts of that gentleman’s charms

He was so nice and tender with me today

He gave me this chocolate for free

I refuse his offer to date me though

He crossed a boundary

For he knew that I was with another, though he’s out at sea

I may never see him again, that’s true, but he belongs to me

I am a loyal sort of girl, I say

And he just smiled at me

And now looking onwards at that storm

I hope my love is safe and keen to come his way back to me

Oh wild ravaging sea, protect him for little old me

I will thank you if you do

For my lad’s faithful to you

A slithery hand

A slithery wet hand touches your lifeless skin

She’s breathing into your mouth

Your life in shatters begins again

For this mermaid is no foe, but friend

A rare creature from the cruel sea

A rare mermaid has come to thee

She has saved your life, this time around

She’s kept your life all safe and sound

On the sandy shore you lie

You wake up and do not realise

How close you came to death last night

Nor who has relit your life’s shining light

Little sea maiden

Rising up into the wistful rainy night, I don’t see the stars shining bright

Awoken from my bed of sea, I sit on a rock and sulk grumpily

There are no boats out this eventide

No one to call to doom

I’ll sit and wait for the sailors to come

So I can sing my tune

Little fishes swim with me

Under the beautiful briny sea

A pearl necklace around my neck

I wait for you or a shipwreck

How beautiful you see me now

Sitting on my rock

But if you’re wise you’ll know what I am

And your ears you will block

Oh come to me dear sailor

My friend and my foe

I know you have faraway places that you are meant to go

But I will bring you jewels a plenty

My beauty is unparalleled

Come closer to the water, and I will show you hell

for our mother, father and heirs

First and foremost I’d like to say, don’t let this world of ours fade away

This earth is for our mother, father and heirs

They at least, deserve clean air

Respect our lands, respect our seas, for is there another world that we can reach?

If not, then we are doomed, unless you have time for changes, this I assume

We all need to make an effort; we can’t carry on like this

We need to find a better way, or else this world we’ll miss

Don’t treat the world amiss

The pearly maid

Draped in pearls, she sings a song of death

She swims around the vessel

She smells the sailor’s breath!

She calls to him so delicately

Singing him to doom

He tries not to listen

But he sees her chest festooned

Pretty little pearls so white

Glistening in the sea

Around a neck of purity

Surely she cannot harm me?

He thinks so sure, he thinks he is wise

So takes off his clothes and swims

She catches him with ease and now the story gets grim

The sailor dies unwittingly beneath the rocky waves

The maiden he had got too near, has torn his airways

He swims with the little fishes, in his deathly state

He will be a warning to others, not to make the same mistakes…

I’m an alien sailing the mandala sea, seeking for a new home, or just a place to be
