Bar: Mind Palace
I like to bring myself to peace
By searching deep inside my mind
I find a very great release
In which I can relax, unwind
This place, it has a purpose
It takes up not much surplus
This place, it has no malice
I call it my mind palace
I call it green, I call it brown
I call it golden, call it warm
I feel great when I go down
Inside of it, despite the storm
My palace has a forest
Where birds are finely chorused
It has a lazy river
So cool it makes me shiver
My palace is a place of wood
Of nat’ral spires and of song
My palace is a place of good
I’d like to stay there, days along
The trees here all are bodhi
My OM is deep and throaty
It’s mossy here and grounded
Sharp corners are all rounded
I like to think this place of mine
Is brought on by an inner part
This palace is not big or fine
But still gives me a tranquil heart
This place has so much bounty
My own and verdant county
This might sound mighty callous:
Stay out of my mind palace!

Empat Empat: Youness
I love you for your youness true
And for your heart that is so warm
I love your eyes, your smile too
You are the calm amid the storm
And when I look at you I see
I love you for your youness true
And I know when you look at me
You see me well, see me anew
When I’m unhappy, when I’m blue
You try to be there, try to say:
“I love you for your youness true,
I’ll be there, brighten up your day.”
You raise me up through sunny skies
You are the one, I know it’s you
Because the light shines through your eyes,
I love you for your youness true

Payar: Colors of the Orient
Of all jewels of the Orient, of all their lovely hues
The jade ones and the amethysts… those are the ones I choose
Around my hips green satin drapes, green silk upon my bed
My throat is clad in emeralds, green jade upon my head
A cushion filled with lavender, a plum-dark wooden throne
Brocaded vest dyed indigo, a purple finely sewn
Together these two colors meet, a tryst between two jewels
But on a face of golden skin, with eyes like azure pools
Of all jewels of the Orient, I find these two work best
The ones uncut and faceted, not like those in the West.

Alba: Should I Stay or Should I Go?
One morning in the month of May,
I vowed to find the truth,
Abandoning this place I stay
And running from my youth
My parents dozed the whole night through
I had not slept a wink
Before I stood and thought of you
And felt my poor heart sink
How can I leave? How can I go?
When I am needed here?
But I, I suffer, this I know
Alone, I shed a tear
I want for nothing but to live
With you for all my days
For here I’ve nothing left to give
But time and love and praise
I’ll go with you one day I hope
And with you always be
But here, right now, I needs must cope
By being ‘cross the sea
I want to go, but need to wait
Until the puzzle’s pieced
I only hope it’s not too late
When I am then released.

Flash Fiction: Sonar in Olympus Mons
At three days old, Ma took me to a hilltop near our ranch an’ showed me to th’elements. Them weren’t nothin’ but crimson dust. Highest mountain was Olympus Mons, four hundred miles away. Ma promised me God’d deliver no matter what hilltop we was on. She said: “Sarah, don’t you climb it; evil sets there.”
I b’lieved her; my ma always told the truth.
This story ain’t ‘bout Ma, nor me. S’about aliens that shooted us when I was fifteen.
Xonsas got Ma. Rushed us in ‘em swift crafts, an’ shot ‘er! Ma lay bleedin’ after our ranch burned to cinders. Wanted ta git ‘em but Ma said no.
Her blood turned the dirt redder, soakin’ it. Ma made me swear ta bring God to ‘em. Ain’t the heart ta say they was gone.
After she died, I got what I could from the burnin’ house an’ set out ta find ‘em. No folk ever seed ‘em. We knew they came from 47-million miles out. T

My Love is More...
True my love for you is bright
Brighter than the stars at night
But it is more, oh so much more
Than anything I say or write
True my love for you is free
Bolder than the deep blue sea
But it is more, oh so much more
Than anything outside of me
True my love for you is grand
Life with you is never bland
But it is more, oh so much more
Than anything upon this land
True my love for you's like hope
Tied around me like a rope
But it is more, oh so much more
Than anything I reach or grope
Yes my love for you is true
Purer than the purest hue
But it is more, oh so much more
Than everything I see in you!

Flash Fiction: Druid Yule
     The Yule fire died down to spitting embers and dark ash; Reed pulled up the hood of his robe and buried himself in its warmth. Next to him, his Goddess lay, clothed in nothing but ivy – girded around her loins and winding up her arms – and a circlet of holly berries, twisting through her wildwood hair. The snowfall had already settled on the plains of Salisbury, and the gray and blue standing stones protected them from outside harm. He really should go home, he thought; his brother would begin to wonder.
     Reed came from a long line of druids, but his ancestors began to reject the practice in the late 1600s. Before that, the family practiced their rites in secret. Now, about ten tears after the Great War, he had decided to revive it. Stonehenge had a curious pull on him every since he first saw it; it tugged at his heart, beckoning him with its mystical aura and singing to him an otherworldly ballad which only he cou

Desired
My love for you breeds so much emotion
Need for your touch 'cross miles of ocean
My want and desire, aflame like a fire
For skin to meet skin in silent devotion
The breath of your love like air for my soul
Breezing into me to feed the live coal
The embers are glowing, my love for you growing
And everyday rushing to meet you, my goal
Your eyes are so grounding, alive like the earth
The dirt beneath me never coming to dearth
I feel quite sound with my feet on the ground
So I know exactly my place and my worth
Your lovely moist lips quench my thirsty mind
The closeness of you is something I'll find
Our fingers will touch, and together as such
A ray of hope is set for mankind
All of the elements brought on this world
May always pound at us, and at us be hurled
But we'll never go under, nor be torn asunder
Because in each other, our dreams are unfurled

Something to love her back
I saw Gwen for the first time in God knows how long today. She looked different. She had two new tattoos and a new piercing and her face wasn't freckly anymore. She said she couldn't live without her foundation. Couldn't show her face in public without it. Talk about fucking paranoid. What happened to the tomboy Gwen I used to know? She asked me if I wanted to go with her to vote and I said sure, even though I wasn't registered and didn't give a damn about politics.
On the way there, when she and I were in her car, she told me she'd been fucking a new guy lately. I said cool and asked if it was any good. Then she looked at me with this big grin and said, so guess what? I said, I don't know, what? And she said, in about seven months give or take a few days, I'm going to have a new name. I was confused. I asked if she was going to legally change her name. She laughed and shook her head and tried to make me guess what her new name was going to be. It's really simple, she said.

1. Your favorite color?
Emerald green (I usually just say green but my favorite shade is actually emerald).

2. Your favorite movie?
Sooo hard, but for the sake of this meme I'm going to go with One flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

3. Your favorite game?
Not much of a gamer. I'm slowly working my way through Outlast (thanks to my work friend), which I'm loving, but I don't think I've gotten far enough into it to call it my favorite. I'll go with Mortal Kombat. It's the one I've played the most. My sister and I used to play it for hours on Nintendo when we were kids.

I'm on the edge of my seat here, wondering what will come of this. The article is vague and unpromising, and that obscurity is worrisome.
For a long while, it seemed dA was sitting on the fence between the yard with the fluffy pillows and the yard with vicious alligators that can and will eat you; I just hope that when dA falls off that fence, it will be onto the safe cushions rather than into the maw of a man-eating creature. Which side is Wix on? Time will tell, but the news appears to be a portent of doom.

If things start plummeting South, I might just stick all my crap in storage or delete everything of import so that greedy outsiders can't steal my carefully-thought-out intellectual property.

Been crocheting a lot lately.
Making stuff for all my coworkers in telesales for before the project job ends.
I'm now Hollyberry31 on Ravelry. Go take a look if you knit or crochet.
I'll be posting pictures up here too when I get a chance, to show how far I've come since February 20th.
Love you guys. Take care, and I'll do my best to show up on dA as often as possible.
Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know that I'm alive. I've been very busy at my job (same seasonal job I had last year) and have not had time to do anything dA related. I barely have time for other activities. In the evening before I go to sleep, I talk to Christian (bf) on FaceTime, I make my lunch for work the next day, and then I crochet a little, then I go to sleep. On weekends I'm either working on Saturday for four hours or being busy doing things I couldn't do during the week. I'm exhausted at the moment. But I'm sure that as time goes by, I'll get more used to working again and I'll be fine.
So yeah. Just wanted to let you know. Thanks for your patience.

Linguistics

linguisticsAnd perhaps we artists don't speak the same language as the rest of you at all, actually. We do not even speak each other's languages. Visual artists, painters and photographers and the rest, speak a quick, throaty dialect given to slow slow vowels and long words that slither out in between the teeth. Musicians, of course, are given to singing every word of their language. They're a multilingual breed, that one, with a quite near-normal first language that is still a bit like humming, and then an incandescently ethereal and oftentimes demonic vocabulary in the other. Dancers do not speak at all, mute except when displaying an arresting, enchanting form of sign language. Artisans, and I count sculptors in their field, sound the most ordinary of all of all of us when sentences slip between their lips, but the words themselves are fantastic and endearing, little conglomerate syllables and sounds that should not be in the same phrase together but also belong together, like the French langu

Of course! Your writing is fantastic! I look forward to reading more, especially on First Impressions. The first line of the first chapter was definitely a successful hook. You should publish with Amazon when you're completely done with it and then take it off DeviantArt to encourage people to buy the book. I'd certainly buy it. And if you're worried about publishing with Amazon, know this, (unless you have already worked with them, then you are probably not worried), a lot of emerging authors swear by Amazon because it's cheap and/or free and you get to design it however you want. And no agent will have the opportunity to suggest that you not put your real name on it. (I've heard of this happening with agents picking big name publishers like Random House, Tachyon, Simon & Schuster, and Del Rey. One cannot always listen to an agent.) Anyway, hopefully I'll be writing more too and we can comment and give each other constructive criticism; I'd definitely appreciate your advice and suggestions.
Have a fabulous weekend. :)

Aw, thanks for reading!  You are too kind about FI.  It is something of a runaway train, but I'm having fun with it again.

Do you have a story currently posted you're especially keen to get comments on?  I haven't browsed your gallery much yet, I admit.  It was more like: she likes MZB and Star Wars??  I want to be her friend!!  :D

At first I was like "MZB? What does that stand for?" Lol and I was looking all over my profile for stuff with those initials. I suck as decoding obscure acronyms. Lol. I didn't even know what potus meant until my boyfriend in England told me. Lol. But I got it now. You mean Marion Zimmer Bradley.

At the moment, I'm thinking about posting the start of a Steampunk story involving automatons and ballet and scientists. It's written in the third person omniscient, present tense, and has some inner dialogue from some of the main characters. Also, I have a story in the works called Sugar and Smoke that centers on musical similes and metaphors in describing the life of a tortured soul in Victorian England. The chapters are movements instead of chapters. The prologue is called a prelude, the first chapter is called Andante or Adagio or something. But you get the idea. The musical movements titles are an indication as to the general feeling of the chapter. When it reaches something like Allegro or Agitato, the action picks up. And when it reaches the Coda, the story ends. I'll see what I can do about reposting it.

Yes. Star Wars is awesome! I think Luke Skywalker is sexy, hands down! :P

Anyway, I'll be looking more at your work tonight I hope. :)
