You know, maybe I'll just call them all the Aviarían Sonnets. That sounds better, don't it?A bit more Santharian, I think.

In the sonnets where the God/Goddess's name is three syllables, things get a bit weird with the rhythm, so bare with the first line. It works if you switch to iambs after the apostrophe.

I like this poem. It's like my mirror. And you know the form.



O Eyasha

O Eyasha, let me in thy embrace
As I fall tender on the gentle night.
To me lend wings that I might go in grace
Though I know not the way of dove’s fair flight.
Celestial lights shine soft upon the bay
As ripples from the anxious waves retreat
Grow slender, small, then simply fade away
We all must do the same, admit defeat
To death, who takes us in her icy hold.
But I, my soul I offer but to thee,
Not taken to the tombs of stone and cold,
But soar with thee, as glorious, as free.
And so upon my very life I swear
To meet thee where the cliff face meets the air.

"There is much misjudgment in the world. Now, I knew you for a unicorn when I first saw you, and I know that I am your friend. Yet you take me for a clown, or a clod, or a betrayer, and so I must be if you see me so. The magic on you is only magic and will vanish as soon as you are free, but the enchantment of error that you put on me I must wear forever in your eyes. We are not always what we seem..." -Schmendrick the Magician, The Last Unicorn

To me this one is one of my favourites in your series, Rayne! Has a lot of emotions and atmosphere, all woven very well together! :thumbup

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
