#08 A Little Imagination




Pisces - The Fish - Boris Vallejo

Following on from the last NaPoMo theme of Vladimir Kush I am staying with using images to give poets as much scope as possible for NaPoMo. This time however, we enter a world fantasy with the art of the Peruvian artist Boris Vallejo and his wife, Julie Bell. Their work can be found at http://www.imaginistix.com/

Happy Quilling!

Changlings

The lovely words blew them away
Took away their sanities lock
The the beast within had its day
On the shores where love makes its dock.
By the bay they had their sweet way
For hearts undone rare find a block.
The lovely words blew them away
Took away their sanities lock,
Sure the Crane came into the fray
His song loud, wings wide, by the flock
Of seagulls parting before clay
People intent on loves first shock,
The lovely words blew them away
Took away their sanities lock.



Circe - Boris Vallego

Mistress of Wyrms

Mistress of wyrms and earthy things
Those things that sneak and slither round
Between rocks or swim in springs
Underground dwellers sightless found
More seen than heard without two wings,
Others with teeth seek to enround,
Mistress of wyrms and earthy things
Those things that sneak and slither round
Come round to her at the calling
For her voice alone is the sound
Of their queen mother who's singing
Marks their living breathing hearts pound,
Mistress of wyrms and earthy things
Those things that sneak and slither round.



Mistress of Wyrms - Boris Vallego

Silver Shoes

Seems there was the odd flash of lightening
At the corner of my vision
Or perhaps it be that splash of sun
There reflecting off a tin roof shingle,
It's sure the sun caught a mirage
From heat arising from the ground
Cast like a rhythmic quiver
Of mercury shattering.... pop ~
Nay, twas a glint off silver hooves!

Divena Collins

Devil Woman

Black the sun has burned the sky
While deep in purgotary shall go I
In a dark abyss of wanton shame
The moon shall never be the same
Live to die within smouldering arms
Cannot escape those evil charms
Defense is low but hot with desire
Deep in the heat of a burning fire
A temptress of the darkened night
I shall dance with the devil tonight.

Unto this demon of wilful corrupt
Red hot ashes of sin shall erupt
Wild are the passions of fiery lust
Ashes are ashes as dust is to dust
Red is the fire that burns within hell
There is no return from an evil spell
Nor shall hot passion kindle the fire
I surrender completely with desire
A temptress of the darkened night
I shall dance with the devil tonight.


Devil Woman - Boris Vallejo

Time Shall Tell

Only time shall tell what expectations
That we shall find in the far future
As it has been in the past generations
In human form or that of a creature
That may have once been our relations
May soon be written within scripture
Only time shall tell what expectations
That we shall find in the far future
In past tense the book of revelations
Scribed forth an interesting feature
That of the apocalypse contributions
Predicting the four horsemens culture
Only time shall tell what expectations
That we shall find in the far future.

Ryter Roethicle

Blackness

The black trees in my minds corner
Grow rancid with the fruit of death
Corruption and the smell of sulphur
Decaying stench forms on my breath.
I feel the worms tear and butcher
My flesh again, the earth restoreth
The black trees in my minds corner
Grow rancid with the fruit of death
The soil slowly takes me to her
Finally earth becomes one with flesh
Time erases my sepulchre
My soul rests again in Asgoreth
The black trees in my minds corner
Grow rancid with the fruit of death

Darkness

The darkness will all encompass
Midnight will be ever my friend
And bring with it all the evil class
Seeking you, your life to end.
See dark clouds over the moon pass
Furtive moving at the roads bend
The darkness will all encompass
Midnight will be ever my friend
Hear the howls from the hungry mass
Desiring blood message they send
See your bloodstains on the grass
Quivering in death, bowels spend
The darkness will all encompass
Midnight will be ever my friend



The Collector - Boris Vallego

New Mates

If I tell you a secret will you tell me one,
Two secrets shared alone under the sun?
I promise not to tell, if you confide in me,
Whisper in my ear let it drift out to sea.
Bare your heart and I'll bare my soul,
Let me love you from within, make us whole.
I'll sing you a song I'll write you a sonnet
We'll lie on my bed and make love upon it.
Your head on my shoulder, true love will cling
My lips on your lips as our bodies now sing.


Centaur - Boris Vallejo

Profile of Destiny

What is this thing we call a soul
I cannot see, nor can I feel
Yet without it I am not whole
And you tell me that it so real.
I sit here and watch my life unroll
Silent waiting for fate to deal
What is this thing we call a soul
I cannot see, nor can I feel
It seems inevitable after all
As Destiny winds in her reel
With heat and wax she makes a seal
As cupid fires, once again I fall
What is this thing we call a soul
I cannot see, nor can I feel


Fantasy Profile - Boris Vallega

Unequalled Wisdom

The fairground that is life has many choices,
And equally speaking out, so many voices.
Do not laugh, do not sing, do not enjoy,
Those miserable bastards are not Gods envoy.
He says "Love thy neighbour, but not his wife"
That's a sure way he recons of causing strife
He says "Love thy neighbour, but not his Ass"
I could say something, but I won't be crass.
On the fairground that is life, enjoy all you can.
And equally avoid criticism by a religious man.


Bioshock - Boris Vallejo
