I tried to be tarty


Waiting for Flickr
To upload my screen capture
...I hear my own pulse...

Morning chats with friends
Online and offline humans...
(I want a shower.)

Adorned in purple
My avvie loves the roses
Too much to detach.

She also adores
The cheeky flow of fabric --
Wee open jacket.

Hiatus? Oh well.
Blogging keeps me sane right now.
Love me anyway! :D

Verdant and fae


Cup warm in my hand
I Photoshop this fairy
Thinking of the Spring.

Leaves are still green here
Autumn settled down up north
We've been neglected...

No inward turning
For the fallow months of rest,
No forgotten fields.

I'll find my Autumn
When it drops into my soul --
A crisp, fragile leaf.

(Random faux-ku for your morning coffee, with love from Acha.)

'Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world: now could I drink hot blood,
And do such bitter business as the day
Would quake to look on.

~William Shakespeare 

(With thanks to Elizabeth for picking this quotation. Also, she shared a number of gorgeous photographs of a few different Halloween looks -- click the pictures to go to her photo set.)

Halloween Series: Fricka Morgath and Serene Fairey

Fricka Morgath of Frick (Image c. 2009 by Fricka)

"Cernunnos is a complex and powerful god. Since his earliest origins as Lord of Hunt, he has been associated with animals, abundance, good fortune and virile fertility, but since the object of the hunt is the death of the prey, and the hunter is sometimes even killed in this life-sustaining pursuit, Cernunnos is recognized as both the God of Death and guardian of the underworld. Depicted occasionally as androgynous, the God deliberately bridges the liminal space between male and female, Goddess worship and God."

(-- From Hawthorne Grove)

In Aztec mythology, the Centzon Totochtin ("four-hundred rabbits"; also Centzontotochtin) are a group of deities who meet for frequent parties; they are divine rabbits, and the gods of drunkenness.

(-- From Freebase)

"Cute cute! I thought I would try a “lighter” side of Halloweeny costumes … I know what you're thinking. Check out that bit of hot tail! :) All the Scribble schtuffs was on sale! Until October 30, she is having a L$50 sale on (almost) everything Orange in her store, and on Halloween the sale switches to everything Black. I also bought a holding baby bunny pet, throwable (!) bunnies and butterscotch candy flats," said Serene.

Halloween Series: Um...well, me.


In the deep shade, at the farther end of the room, a figure ran backwards and forwards. What it was, whether beast or human being, one could not, at first sight tell: it grovelled, seemingly, on all fours; it snatched and growled like some strange wild animal: but it was covered with clothing, and a quantity of dark, grizzled hair, wild as a mane, hid its head and face.

-- Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Willow: Do you wanna hunt zombies too?
Cordelia: Darn, I have cheerleader practice tonight. Boy, I wish I knew you were gonna be digging up dead people sooner. I would've canceled.
Xander: All right, but if you come across the army of zombies, can you page us before they eat your flesh?

[Cordelia huffs and leaves the library]

Giles: Xander?
Xander: Huh?
Giles: Zombies don't eat the flesh of the living.
Xander: Yeah, I knew that. But did you see the look on her face?

When the first breath of winter, through the flowers is icing,
And you look to the north, and the pale moon is rising,
And it seems like all is dying and would leave the world to mourn
In the distance, hear the laughter of the Last Unicorn.

When the last moon is cast over the last star of morning,
And the future has past without even a last, desperate warning,
Then look into the sky where through the clouds a path is formed
Look and see her, how she sparkled, it's the Last Unicorn...

-- Jimmy Webb

Halloween Series: Hethr Engle

Hethr Engle (image c. 2009 Hethr) - Click for the full size!

How silently they tumble down

And come to rest upon the ground

To lay a carpet, rich and rare,

Beneath the trees without a care,

Content to sleep, their work well done,

Colors gleaming in the sun.

At other times, they wildly fly

Until they nearly reach the sky.

Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.

Exhausted, drop to earth below

To wait, like children, for the snow. 

-- Elsie Brady

Halloween Series: Munchflower Zaius

Munchflower Zaius of Nomine (images c. 2009 by Munchflower)

On the day of the dead, when the year too dies,
Must the youngest open the oldest hills
Through the door of the birds, where the breeze breaks.
There fire shall fly from the raven boy,
And the silver eyes that see the wind,
And the light shall have the harp of gold.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Though grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride.

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

Y maent yr mynyddoedd yn canu,
ac y mae’r arglwyddes yn dod."

-- Susan Cooper
