DOM….The Dragon


……Have you ever seen a dragon ?
DRAGONS lived  in the time when men had magical powers and great wonderful deeds were done by both.
Deep in the depths of the sea , among the floor beds , huge sea anemones bloomed . They were no ordinary sea creatures for
it was said , that when they bloom and start their dance with the waves , the dragons emerged and began their life .

They had a multitude of magical powers , being able to breathe underwater was one of them . These magnificent  creatures varied in color and size . Perhaps , their special powers ,
also came from these sparkling colors .  Their eyes were
sparkling gems of ruby, emeralds and diamonds ,and  some had eyes behind
their enormous heads , which made them more powerful …….The sun was
brightly shining on this  summer day ….

The world was not as it is today ,  it  was  fantasy
unimaginable  in every wave , one can see  magic in every whistle of the
wind . The Mermaids were playing on the shore ….….leaving their tails and walking on land . It is
the time, that Dragons are born
, the time of year
after one hundred turns of the sun that finally the special sea
anemones would burst out silver , gold , magenta , and sapphire
sparkling translucent bubbles , that floated and rolled and hardened to
become the shell  of the baby  dragons…..The mermaids were the
watchers , making sure that all the bubbles that
floated were safe. These were very special dragon eggs.. At
night , when the temperature of the sea has gone cold , the mermaids
covered the eggs with  fire corrals  for protection and heat. A row
of roving moray eels , would be seen slithering about  dutifully
standing guard .
Deep within the farthest caves of
the sea the older dragons would leisurely  take their time as they
smoked and puffed the delicious sea weeds that grew in giant
proportions giving nourishment and home to the different fishes that
swam the ocean.

As our tale evolves around Great Dom ,
as he was called , drowsily making smoke bubble rings in his dragon
lair , had an idea , he would try to unite all the Dragons. Why not ?,
he told himself , we are so special , and yet we declare war amongst
ourselves ….”Then all fighting should cease ,” he snorted, as more
tiny radiant bubbles sprayed around the lair .It is that time of the
century that dragons are born and just the right moment to be joyous ,
as they will multiply in numbers . And he snorted some more  , until his
eyes could no longer fight the sleep that rocked him , as the current
rolled from side to side . caressing the
huge
sea dragon to dreamland .
As these special beads took form and hardened , rocking and floating with each current that breezed by , one particular dragon bead was glowing . And a tiny hum could be heard , I would almost say it was a soft ” squeak ” , as it jumbled among the other beads . It was nearly time for these special beads to hatch and become the great magical dragons  !
Down in the caverns , where the mermaids dwell , all waited in anticipation…For they were also the keepers of the “Book” , wherein all names and gender of the dragons were kept..So as the current flowed , they waited and waited and watched .


As one can see, they were special mermaids , who also walked on land as well as water , and all was written in the ” Book ” .
Crackling noises and scratches were heard that night as the fire corals covered the beads . And by the break of the morning light when the sun was peeping just above the horizon , as pink and orange rays emerge , a New Baby Dragon was born ….Quickly the
mermaids , scooped them out from the flowing bubbles that emerged and laid them on a large clam bed .
Such a sight to see , a baby dragon fast asleep…in a clam shell !  Dom , was so proud , he swaggered close , to see ..Soon there will be more , he told himself , and snorted and tilted his snout with glee ! As a spray of white foamy silver bubbles softly floated by . A  new age of peaceful dragons , at last ! The thought completely engulf his war torn body…Peace at last !

He had asked all the Mer people to hid his plan . And this was to be carried out swiftly .!  As time is magical in the world of fantasy . The dragons soon popped out of their beads , and started to develop. They were guided and taught LOVE , HUMILITY, COMPASSION and FORGIVENESS…These four basic virtues , were the key for their survival . One by one , they were made to understand the ways of the dragons, …They  killed each other for greed , power and supremacy and now it is time to change all that , as foretold by the sands of time….

There is no time in magic land , so the dragons have grown  almost in an instant….Drago , the first baby dragon born of the new era , was a curious one …Everyday as the Mer people , swam the oceans and seas with the horde , teaching them all that is good and should be preserved , Baby Drago would hang on to their toes or bite their tails as they swooshed under caverns and giant kelp .

Drago knew about MAN , and how he as a dragon is a ” Brother ” to man…He was told not all men are worthy to be brothers , but
there are those who hold the same heart , and power as he does …..SOooo , each day as they glided in and out of the sea , Drago always kept an eye, looking for a man or woman …” I’ll give this a test”, he said , in his heart …. one day saw a man , on a ship , and playfully , he gulped in water and sprayed the poor man . Drago popped his head out of the waves…to see what happened !


Of course , drenched as he was the man stood up and reached over the rail ,and saw a dragon ,  face to face ! The dragons face was so close that he could feel the cool hiss as it blew his hair and more foamy spray covered his face . What a sight so behold, so funny actually .. “He must be a brother” , Drago thought .. He is not afraid of me .. Hmmmmm, I will try another day  again .

In the Book , certain people are innate with magical strength and knowledge ….And Drago , was looking for his equal ..as it was written , ages ago.
The Mer people always advised them .to be wary of false persons and that in the world there is good as well as  evil , so is it ,  in their world .

As the sands write the story , a great war was brewing amongst the old Dragons . They are getting restless and impatient from not fighting , it has been 1000 years in our calendar , and only a few months in their time… They  have grown fat and lazy and idleness made them bored …and the blood in their veins are calling them to battle once again .
Dom , could not prevent  it, for even he felt the urge to fight ..to plunder and conquer …They are The  Mighty Dragons after all . Sadly a great assembly was called , The skies , fell to darkness , as the winged dragons blocked the sun in their magnitude…. The air was blacked with soot , and hail stones falling from the sky. Bursts of fire and blue ice cold be seen in the sky. And they came flying from far away…From the four corners of the earth they flew, high in the sky , over mountains , forests and beneath the seas ,  to finally converge and seal their faith . The battle is to the death .

All of Faerie Land was in battle gear . They too , are affected by this battle  . Their civilization also might disappear .
The land prepared for the coming battle.. The Queens from every kingdom waved their flag of battle , and elves , gnomes and all magical creatures took refuge or gathered together to fight and fortify themselves against the doom that loomed. All spell binders , looked in their calderas and shuddered at what they saw . The moon had it’s eyes closed , as thundering flaps resounded , tress of old bent and cowered ,  the mountains blew fiery smoke . When  these Magnificent Dragons of every shape , size and colors   passed by .

They are everywhere said the Fairy Queens , ” We must stop them ! Or all Fairy Land  will be forever lost . ” But who will be brave enough to speak to them ?, cried all.. Fand , one of the fairy Queens stood  up and waved her wand , and called upon a Huge Black Eagle , one of the only few left, and………Whispered incantations , in a language that sent shivers down everyone’s   spine, no one could move …but could hear in their minds. She had ordered

Fly , fly high , over mountains and forests and seas , and search for the Dragon and Man who will reunite the worlds together again .One of pure heart , who is destined to save the fairy land and the dragons from oblivion  . A great hush covered the land as the Black Eagle spread his wings and  flew higher and higher till he vanished in the dark sky .” Continue , will all battle stance ,!” she shouted , “We must be prepared , if the black Eagle fails ! ” and all followed.

Drago , dressed in his battle armor stood on a rock looking at the sky , as the Black Eagle encircled above . He could hear what the eagle was saying  !
” What ? ” he said , “Me …? But I’m only a baby dragon , How can I do such a magical deed  ? ” he answered . ” You were taught in the new ways , have faith and all will be accomplished .” said the Black Eagle …” Come , follow me , we have no time to waste, the older dragons are nearing the center of  fairy lands domain.
I must now find the Man….Swooooh ! and they were flying with the four winds…Drago was proud to help save the world . At least , he was given a chance .
Dom , the older dragon , heard all this and  flew quickly to the magic forest , where a man lived….He must seek him out . This man is a brother , of the dragons and only he can accomplish this task….as it was written in the Book of Dragons , he remembered … Deep, deep in the magical forest , Dom , searched , calling out , ” Brother , brother , we need your help ! “The time is now , to unite !” Dom cried out . Relentlessly he pushed deeper and deeper ,until he saw a fire, and there sat the MAN …smiling at him , as he approached . Strange and magical things happened those days , a mortal cannot truly understand  ,   as  Dom began to explain to the man ,. …a half fairy by birth . Strong gushes of wind , blew and as it stopped, stood Drago and the Black Eagle , ….”Tonight , we will be testing all the powers that be” , Dom said . As curious as he is , Drago moved closer to the man , ” It is you again ! ” he exclaimed , and fell down on his behind , smiling . “We are brothers and must stop this war , or no one will be left alive !” Drago said…..The man smiled and asked the baby dragon to hold out his paws , so that he could touch them , and then a magical  thing happened . The four winds engulfed them both and the earth shook , and the wisdom trees bowed …….Before them stood .. The  biggest MAN-DRAGON of all as foretold in the Book….He roared so loud that the earth cracked open and all stood still in the kingdoms. Suddenly all the battle fairies blazing in flames appeared  …by the thousands..” We are ready to escort you , DRAGON LORD.! ” they shouted in a  thousand   echoing voices .

That day , all the waring old dragons , bowed and knelt before the Dragon Lord ….and peace once more spread throughout the world .They vowed harmony
and love , as they dispersed to the four corners of the earth… ” If we all die , who will be left to tell our story ? asked the Dragon Lord , ” No one would left to be witness that we as man and dragons are brothers and can live in peace .” With this words ringing in their ears the old dragons swaggered and bowed to obey the new way .

If you are wondering , if in today’s world there are still dragons , well yes there is ! You just have to look with kind eyes and heart and maybe , they
will playfully show themselves to you…….

MYThICAL ….WATERS of DREAMS

…….It was the time of amazement ….when MERMAIDS swam freely the seas of the world . Just imagine being able to breathe underwater ! They ruled the world of water and all it’s creatures . Transforming as they raise above the waves . When the world above was in turmoil and fury , beneath the waves is calm and serenity …Believe it !

Katya , a beautiful siren , blew her shell of gold , surrounded by other mermaids , all waiting for her to tell her tales and legends . As tales of old had  been written in every ripple in , the WORLD of WATER , and  holding myriads of dreams and stories , past  ,present and future . Entwined and flowing Giant Sea Kelp , bowed and swayed keeping the legends and stories alive forever.

…….The cool aqua  breeze streaming and blowing tiny bubbles across their slender bodies . Katya opens a large Clam shell , and out flows a stream of gold and silver pearls and a soft melodic humming was heard . Silence , covered the space as wide eyed mermaids waited for her to begin her tales.

A loud gasp was uttered , as the gentle giant SEA DRAGON , gently lifted the pearls to Katya . Every pearl holds a story “, the sea dragon swooned, as bubbles coming out of his nose formed a cloud of silky golden spray, “Be patient , little ones and listen “ it said , bowing and blowing a  huge spray of mist , sending the Sea Horses tumbling about……..!

……This made the mermaids giggle and laugh , to see multi-colored  balls flowing through the stream of clouds . The dizzy sea horses grabbing the spiny corals for help. Whoops , Did I do that ?”asked the sea dragon with a squint in his eye . In all of this commotion a large
Morey Eel slithered near the coral bed …….confused and bewildered .”Tell us a story .”it said .

As the sun kisses the cool aqua water , a tiny dream bubble trickles down to the depths , touching a pink pearl . Katya picks it up and says, “Now I will begin to share with you the dreams of a little girl , a human . All was in a hush , waiting .”This child has always been close to us” , Katya started to weave her magical  tale and all listened closely . Humans , have always been a part of their lives . But she particularly kept a close watch on this little one. Why ,you ask ? Well , it seems that  Diana has always wished to be in the world of the ,mermaids. She would go to the sea shore and talk to the wind and the waves about her dreams and wishes . And the foremost  dream would be to swim and discover what laid beneath the waves . In her mind played a haunting melody that calls her daily  to the seas’ edge , but her small lungs could only sustain so much air, and she had to surface . So much Diana , wanted to explore and understand , but she could not , no matter how much she tried,but always kept a smile on her face , looking forward  for the day that her dreams would come true………..Katya opens another bead of pearls , and an image appears . It was Diana  , smiling and wishing by the sea. All the mermaids gave a sigh of delight as the bead of pearl floated about .
Remember , that beneath the waves lies a parallel world , and MAGIC abounds .

One sunny morning , when the sky was changing colors  , and the wind was spinning yarns and the waves was rolling about , Diana disappeared from the earth above . For days they searched for her , until one day . On the sea shore was a large sea clam gleaming in the midday sun. And people dared not touch it . But as the sun kissed the horizon and winked at the sky , the clam started to open . Inside was Diana , asleep . stretching her limbs and sitting down , she began to tell the tale of the world beneath the waves . On how the kind fairy siren made her dreams come true . ” How ?” they all asked in disbelief .

In the world where mystical  wonders abound , reality is but a fine line between dreams . Diana  was shown another world where water is breathable where legs not fins bound , where trees are giant kelp and flowers are a myriad of corals blooming when the sunlight touches the waters surface…….But on certain times  one can see Diana holding her beads of pearls and would vanish for days , sometimes weeks ……..and on a moonlit night , can be seen as a….

….  LITTLE MERMAID , playing with silver bubbles on the sea shore…..Happily living her  dreams , as the ripples write her story with each wave the tide brings to shore .

BELIEVE in, the tales of the DEEP …!

CASTLE of GHOSTS ….!

……..Far deep in        Mid -Earth , where  neither worlds collide , lived a beautiful enchantress .They called her Vangeli , she came from within the race of fairies called Veela , and mortal men would be forever enchanted specially when they perform their sweeping dance of love ,taking their hearts and mind as they follow blindly deep into the mystical world .

Wading in the golden waters , the other fairies gathered , waiting and urging Vangeli to continue her story telling . Yes , she
would on certain hours, tell the young fairies tales of old and new . The timing must be perfect , when the moon and stars are in a misty silver gloss and the lakes are golden in glow….and bubbles would raise from below , forming rolling rows of gleaming globes .


The “Egg Fairies “poured the grog and all  lay in waiting , for the story was about why a certain castle  was forbidden for any fairy , Imp and other mystic creature , to enter and step into .  This castle was high up in the sky…Thus as the night  , meets the day and gives a kiss , Vangeli starts her tale….It has been told  when the world was young , she started . A beautiful fairy princess , Gabrielle of the warrior race fell in love with a mortal prince …No one knew about  this love as man was wary about fairies .  Every day as the prince would go into the forest to hunt , Gabrielle would be there at his side , but he never knew this , he just felt something sometimes , would brush his forehead , a soft kiss from Gabrielle … So one day he asked their Sayer…”I want to see fairies and all things mystical “…he continued by explaining how he feels things when he is in the forest….Looking amazed the Sayer , obeyed but gave a warning  to the prince, ” You might not be as you are “! he cautioned …But the prince was resolute and he swallowed a  white and blue stone ,it glittered and glowed as he took it . ” Ah ! Sayer see, nothing is happening to me ,”. he said ,laughing . The Sayer bowed his head , his crooked nose touching his knees and whispered  magical incantations and looked up . Oh my , the prince every movement was glowing and fairy dust was following him all around . ” Hmmm, mumbled the Sayer, I must follow the prince, I do not exactly know the powers of this stone ,I gave the prince ..In fact he should have not swallowed it , but just placed it under his tongue…..Oh my, oh my !What to do ?” And all day , all night , the sayer worried.

The morning dew has just been placed by the soft mist , and the prince was off….he rode into the forest , Gabrielle was waiting behind the large vines and leaves  as he galloped by …In the corner of his eye , he saw a beautiful woman , in full armor,  her golden hair  crowned by sparkling jewels …Slowly , he stopped and pretended not to notice Gabrielle as she approached and stood beside him..he waited for the feeling he would get..but nothing.! ” I know what you did foolish prince “, she said .” Your every move has a trail of multi-colored dust . But are you ready for the consequence of your actions ? ” she asked .
As the tale goes …..the forest was listening !
Looking into her eyes , something magical occurred . He could read her mind , her heart and feel her love almost as if he knew her forever !… he tried to speak , as softly their lips nearly touching , when he was pulled away by the sayer !..”NO.No, No.!” you will be turned into a beast and lose your mind , my prince ! ” he shouted . Was it too late ,to save the prince , because the energy of lightning and forceful wind violently  shook fairyland and the forest . A Shrill shriek , cry was heard , as the mist cleared ,there was a vast clearing filled with Veela fairies , and the Queen was standing holding Gabrielle’s face…..and the prince in chains..
” If you really love him . he must die “, said the queen..Loud thumping and armor clanging resounded in the cold air . A cold chilling mist filled the lake as the young fairies held their breaths in a gasp ! A melodic harp was strumming an ancient song of dreams an old witching melody that only Gabrielle and the prince heard .
A violet green shadow of misty smoke , took shape….All were aghast with fear , ” We are the four spirits that roam the sphere here and the nether world . ” they spoke softly as they engulfed the two lovers. ” Come with us , to a place , if you dare ! “, they whispered….A strange odor , no sweet scent filled the clearing , “There you will forever be , and cannot return to your so called world . But , you will be together , never growing old , no pain nor hate, only ……..what your heart truly desires and feels.”
So deep were the meanings of these words….! When a white swirling mist embraced Gabrielle and her prince , raising them up high in the sky, and through the cloudy mist as the raindrops stopped a CASTLE appeared in the sky.  It was luminous and translucent….
It was said , that the stone that the prince swallowed , called it’s maker….And that it made a way for the two different beings to be together forever…No one can enter nor leave that place ,or they would die , as time is different there , a thousand in our years for one of our day…..So in a night such as tonight , when the clouds are golden and the air is cold , one can see the castle as it floats neither in a different dimension…And hear the lovers pledge of immortal love , as glimpses ghostly figures are seen looking down at earth and chuckles and giggles of children echo in the air.

DRAGON Wings. of SYNTH…!

Quote

I know that , high above the clouds , beyond the twilight of      dreams is the land of the mighty DRAGONS .

People in the lowlands called earth, always feared them as they lorded over the skies .
Eyes of gems , as I would describe them , they sparkled and glowed as they soar in the evening skies…..Are they falling stars ? I once thought they were , because during moonless nights and the wind is still they fly and play in groups of five and sometimes ten . In fact , they look like shooting stars racing high above and falling to the ground with the speed of lightning ……Some lived in the deepest and coldest caverns of the Glass Mountain , called Steel Dragons , with Diamond eyes , in colors of the bluest  blue and the clearest white that it burns . Other dragons , lived deep in the cool waters of the enchanted rivers and lakes , with eyes of violet luminescence  and  Ruby Red , making the water hot or cold .  While others warmed their scaly bodies  deep under molten  rivers of hot lava , a place of eternal and constant natural heat , and their eyes were as black as coal.

Since the beginning of time , the dragons have been seen guarding the  universe  gliding and soaring in the heavens and no one minded them .  Except  for a young man , who admired these aviators of the skies .   Fascinated  by the strength and power of these beasts .  How he wished that he too would be able to fly and soar like them , yes , Racjh  would hold his breath and dream that he was flying , perched  on top of huge rock his  mind would take him to distant lands…………
This is a time of great expectations and bounty , where all creatures had magical powers . I . am called………..
SANZ  (
Sânziană clan )
I have seen many many tales of wonder . so sit down as I unravel my long weaves of secrets .

Man lived within the beauty of the forest , and the mythical creatures . I would like to show them to you  ,so I will give you the power of sight as you read on .  The world before was pure , and anything , everything that your imagination could dream about is possible . The world was ruled by two powers Good and Evil , so there was a balance .  So where happiness was , pain also existed .

As I  continue my tale ,  Racjh  had  just finished tending the land and it was almost twilight ….when shooting stars appeared , he could see them  quite clearly .  Loud whistling sounds filled the air ,  and  the trees trembled and bowed , swaying .  A myriad of colors appeared , blue ,red , violet  and they created a rainbow of other colors , as they formed a ball …. then a shower of stars  as fast as the speed of light . Looking up and mesmerized …he fell to the ground ……in amazement , He had never witnessed this before !

As he walked home , the images  never left his mind , the dancing colors and the speed  of light flashed in his mind . ” How I wish I had wings ! “he shouted in despair . Little did he know that one of the Dragons was resting by the river banks , just floating and frolicking . A loud hissing sound followed by a large  splash startled Racjh . Then the water overflowed into the forest sweeping him down . ” Who dares disturb my sleep ? a voice said . Grasping on to a large tree root , the young man was over taken with fear ……raising his head above the waves . He was face to face with the RIVER DRAGON , with eyes of multi-violet hue , staring at him eye to eye . All he could do was stare , with eyes wide open , because his voice left him . ” Are you the one ? Are YOU the one who shouted and disturbed my sleep ?………..Silence , filled the air ,all the nymphs and the elves peering through the branches , shaking in fear .
No one has ever seen anything like this before …An angry Dragon and a HUMAN face to face ?

Whispering , the fairies huddled and waited .  At last , the young man spoke bravely . ” I have forever been staring at the skies admiring you Oh,MAGNIFICENT DRAGON , spare me ! ” he exclaimed . Taken aback ,the dragon sneered and shook his huge body and tail , making again a loud  splash . ” What ? What  did you say ?  Are you
that arrogant to ask such a thing ?” his eyes squinting and tilting his head , lifted his enormous spiked tail , adorned with multicolored stones . ” If I were to do that , what would you do for me ?” asked the dragon  wagging  his tail
over the mans head ………..As time is non-existent in Synth a Mystic land , Racjh held his breath so long that he passed out. And awoke tended by his fairy friend  LAN , a sweet healing fairy . ” You must apologize to the dragon ,or something will befall you ,” she said. ” But first let me seek the advice  of the WISE ONE , before you do anything again .” and
vanished in a puff….

The ” WISE ONE” was a huge serpent , who has lived a million years ,since time has begun ….he held the secrets
of the ancients and the gods ….and Lan always went to him  for help .
There once , was a mountain of gold , so called because it stored all the knowledge of the Universe , here
lived the SERPENT , he was the keeper of good and evil . Slowly stretching his ancient body , one can see that it has not aged a day , gems in alternate sizes encrusted his scales and it illuminated the cave with such brilliance that  mortal eyes would be blinded .              
“Hmmmmm…. you have come to save your friend  ? ” a hollow echoing voice was heard .  “The River Dragon has
spared your friends life , but he must in return give up something , that is most precious to him . A balance of fair trade , that is the way of the universe !”  The skies that day was crying tears of sorrow ,  the river waters were bubbling and hot fumes encrusted the air with a thick mist , violet in color , the dragon awaits . A curious buzzing was filling the woodland . beneath the thick leaves and hollow tree trunks , fairyland knew there were only three things that could be done to save the mortal man…….LOVE , to Give up his Life or to Give up his free will . Which one will he chose ? Lan sadly watched as her friend ponders all night . By mornings’ light , Racjh stood by the river banks , and fell to his knees as the Huge Dragon head appeared , violet gem eyes gleaming sharply sneering and squinting …….the river water rose and churned with heat as vapors encircled . ” I am waiting ! ” he roared . as the waters churned and moved . ” I give up my life ! ” , Racjh  declared with conviction. ” Ha,ha,ha, I accept !” hissed the dragon ….The PURPLE MIST moved furiously engulfing the man …..Silence and stillness ,as fairyland witnessed a strange form emerge from the mist……………A loud sigh was heard
and all held their breath , and the Dragon spoke with a melodic voice , ” I have seen your heart , and it is innocent ! ”

As I have witnessed in time of the DRAGONS , the mortal man was given a wonderful gift !
Man was able to fly with the dragons……………THE DRAGON WINGS of SYNTH ! as it was called…….

MY Watermelon ,,,,,,HEART !

Did you know that in the land of mystical fantasies , watermelons have existed for ages, just like milk
and yogurt and cheese .The inhabitants of the woodland are fairies who took  care of the  land the fruits and veggies. Their  kingdom is between peoples consciousness and twilight…Who would have believed that They existed ,we seldom see
them or not at all…..It takes a special gift , of vision to be able to see  !

One day in the edge of fairy woodland , after tending her garden and vegetables , Aria , ventured out beyond their realm .
She was so fascinated by a figure , a boy she saw before. The sun has gone down ,and the cool air was blowing softly . She could not
understand what and wh
y she wanted to see him , So cloaked in the colors of the forest she left the protection of the “DOME ” . The young man  lived in the village beyond the river , at night one could see the Village lights aglow in the dark .  Music and laughter could be heard , coming from the Village tavern ,so Aria glided
slowly and peeped at the window….she saw men and women drinking ale and a bountiful spread of food being served.
This is the first time , she had left the protection of the Dome…and her heart was beating fast….Why did she do this ? she asked herself , but her young heart was so erratic , she had to see the young man , the tall and sun-kissed color of his face , was in her mind all the time , this past week and she could not fight it no longer .
One by one she looked at their faces ,but nothing ! He was not there . Where , where could he be ? Oh ! maybe
he lives ,near the edge of the river where he tends his sheep and toils the land , she whispers to herself . So Aria quickly wished herself near the river , and saw a house ….slowly she peeped in ,there he was , cooking ,preparing food for his sick mother.   Aria tilted her head in wonder and amazement , why is the woman sick ? We have healing fairies , maybe she can help ? Looking at his face, made her heart beat faster and faster  and she couldn’t breathe .Oh , what is this feeling ? She watched through the night , just looking and wishing , until she fell asleep when suddenly the sun was out ……Her wings were hot ,so she wished herself back into the realm ..
Ooops !  the Guardian Fairies were at the forest  gates  waiting and looking for her ..! They were armed and in full body armor …ready to fight……….. .
The realm was in deep anticipation and fear that something has happened to Aria , for she was missing all night and all had thought she was abducted by the evil fairies of the Crystal Mountain…….Fand ,The queen of the fairies appeared and a silence covered the dome. ” Well naughty girl , she smiled did you enjoy your travels ?” A great hush
and as all eyes were on Aria.  A timid smile slowly was on her face , ” yes my queen , I have gone over the river , to where the mortals live . I was so curious about their life , and……..and , I was searching for a boy , he looked so interesting ” ….and she knelt and trembled in fear ….Raising her wand , fairy dust sprinkled in the air , and sparkled.
” Today we have all gathered here to search and protect one of our own , be it known and remembered it will be so for everyone in the realm . And it will be ,as long as fairy land exists .” Raise , Aria, just be more careful and be more considerate of people who love you . Go now and rest .”
Once again , calm and content covered the air , as everyone flew ,vanished and disappeared to their hidden abode in the forest deep . One could only see fireflies buzzing and dancing under the multicolor beam of the moonlight ……..As Aria curled in bed of leaves covered with flowers, blowing fairy kisses across the river as her mind wanders into dreamland , of butterflies, and bumble bees and honey lemon scents that filled the night air .

In the magical land of dreams and fantasy , where extraordinary is considered an ordinary occurrence , a fairy was experiencing how it is to be in love . Her mind and thoughts were of the mortal  , the young man across the
river , wishing and wondering when she could see him again . So she decided to seek the help of the enchantress fairy , on how to see him and him to see her . For it was said , that mortal man was to be avoided , for they do not understand their ways and  death would follow . Aria told her how she felt , and what she saw , and about the sick mother of the boy across the river . The enchantress hollow tree , glowed and twinkled as aromatic mists floated and swirled around the room , “these are my helpers “, she whispered ,They can go anyware and take form and shape without being being harmed , I will see now,what you are saying is true or not !”  . And as the willow bended and danced the misty smoke was gone , they were off across the river , moving in a stream of colors and stopped at the young mans house . A strange shape of an old woman appeared ….and knocked on his door . A tearful man opened the door , his mother was dying he said ,”but please come in , you must be tired and hungry .”  Tear drops rolling down his face , he gave food and returned to his mothers side . The rooster made it’s loud call , it was dawn . The young man opened his eyes , looking for the old woman , she was gone…looking at his mother she was smiling at him . How can this be ? he thought , what happened , was it just a dream? His mother was well again !

So like the winds  , time has moved quickly ,in  fairy land , so does it move by  triple leaps in mortal land . The boy has turned into a man and still Aria dared not venture out of the dome . Only following the man across the glass
shield watching him . She was afraid that he might runaway if she appeared or showed herself to him .For the enchantress , has warned her that there will be a horrible consequence that will happen when …..So she just watched and watched , everyday…as her love for him grew and grew . Until one day a wild boar was seen ravaging his field, which he planted with watermelons . Daily he tried to catch the huge animal , and it eluded him skillfully . The beast was huge and hairy it’s thick tusks gnashed  the delicious watermelons as he ate , leaving them scattered on the open field , leaving almost nothing for the man to harvest and sell . SO the man set a trap of vines and wooden sticks to try and catch him .
One night as the moon was in it’s fullest , the greedy beast was approaching the watermelon field , his hooves so large that with every stomp ,the earth would shatter and tremble…he smelled nothing but food and the sweet nectar that the watermelon offered …….The man , was waiting hiding under the huge vines and leaves in the field . In his haste , the beast’s hind legs were snagged by the snare ! ” I caught you !”, the man shouted . now die !
But the wild beast stood his ground and shook his gnarly head and prepared to charge . A loud eerie sound was let out by the wild boar as they clashed and the earth shook . This was heard by Aria , and quickly she flew to the other side of the river , leaving once again the protection of the dome . She was so alarmed by the shrill sound , it sounded like death howling …… “No , no , no please let no harm befall him ,” she shouted . as she approached . The wild beast was about to gnaw the mans back . With one loud scream she leaped and stabbed the beast with her small dagger. But it was no match for the thick hairy hide of the boar , it began to charge again , the man stood up and placed himself between the boar and Aria , hitting him in the chest !……..And blood gushed abound.
The heavens must have heard her cry as Aria rushed to his side , a strong gush of wind  blew that it blinded the man , he closed his eyes in pain . All he could hear was a whistling  sound of  shrill blades and long grunts of pain ….For the Guardian Fairies four in number has slain the wild beast ,  in aid of Aria who called them to help her to save him….As he opened his eyes , he sees her radiant face for the first time ,  and golden tear drops falling down her cheeks …..”I will save you , my love ” she whispered . Taking out her heart , and placing it in his chest as fairy dust danced and healed his wounds……Let it be said that legend has foretold
of the great consequence , and now it has come full circle …..Aria gave her life, her heart for a mortal man , a man she loved for so long and yet he never knew . A great sorrow engulfed the realm of fairy land . The Queen lifted her lifeless body as butterflies circled and birds sang and trees bowed in awe , bringing her back to fairy land .

She looks back at the man , crying for now he had Aria’s heart , and now he can see and understood what had happened . And gives him a smile , “Do not grieve , Aria and you are one now …You now can see and feel the magical love that is endless . Plant this and be happy. ” The queen handed him a  heart filled with seeds , water melon seeds brightly shining as the sun’s rays illuminated  them .

It was said that  MAGIC  happened that summer ……….
The man was last seen entering the deep forest into the magical land of dreams and hope and endless love ,       carrying a baby fairy …….he called ARIA .!

Once again ….Raising her wand , fairy dust
sprinkled in the air , and sparkled.
” Today we have all gathered
here to search and protect one of our own , be it known and remembered
it will be so for everyone in the realm . And it will be ,as long as
fairy land exists .” declared the Fand the Fairy Queen !

The HORSEMEN….!

Creatures with the head arms and chest of a man but the legs and lower
half of a horse.

Liminal beings, caught between the two natures, embodied in contrasted myths, both as the embodiment of untamed nature, as in their battle with the Lapiths, or conversely as teachers, like Chiron.”

It was the time of wonders and mystical magic , deep in the Mountain of Pelion and the region of Magnesia.
lived the CENTAURS ….half horse , half man….!  Thundering hooves broke the still silence deep within the forest.
Aggripas was herding the horses ,. the daylight was always peeping through thick branches .  it was nearing mid-day
and time for a head count…The cool air and misty path was filled and shaken by massive steeds of brilliant covered manes , all rushing down to the river  for their drink of silver cool sparkling water . Leaping and galloping through the path Aggripas would be seen racing to reach the river bed , giving a strong but firm command to the wild horses
“faster, faster !,” he shouted . “We must reach the river before it becomes too hot to drink.”


Blowing his horn , to hasten the herd , making sure that all the wild horses make their way as fast as they can !
The river God Peneous was eagerly waiting for Aggripas  each day, for they would chat about the life in the lowlands
and how it was affecting the rest  of the land. A cool breeze slowly flowed as the horses drank and frolicked .
Aqua , from the mountain streams bubbled and soothed all the horses , specially Aggripas…it made him strong and  and most of all a certain wisdom was always infused . It came from the ripples who always talked so fast that it made his head dizzy …but news is news and he tried to keep up every day  . The ripples of water were talking about AIO ,  and his quest for love and equality . Today ,they bubbled excitedly ,for as they passed and flowed through the  forest , there was a a fight between the clans…….on who

will be the rightful KING of the CENTAURS . As for centuries ago , they have been put into shame .and since then there have been a struggle on who will be King . A lot of his friends joined this battle and have been hurt !  This has to stop , Aggripas  told himself , we might be wild and partly untamed but there is always a big part deep inside us that speaks WISDOM and TEMPERANCE , after all , Centaurs
have both beings !
So as he returned to his home deep in the mountain, racing and leaping together with his herd of wild horses, he was asking the gods to send him a sign or something to help him , stop this war amongst themselves.  “Aieee…..Open ! ‘ he shouted , and the thick branches and vines Lifted and twisted to let them pass ….At last they were deep within the cool  caverns of the mountain , where blue-green stalactites and stalagmites  show off brilliant multicolored crystals of luminance , lighting all the cave….One can say it was an underground palace made by Mother Earth ….as bubbling beads of mountain aqua slowly drop , Aggripas knelt down and gave thanks , all is well and safe within his home …and the whole herd was at peace. While deep in slumber , the goddess Hera sent a him a gift , in his dream he saw a shiny ring , gems of radiant colors, the gold that encompassed it came from the deepest bowels of the earth…”Use this wisely my son, each color has it’s own power , greater than man can imagine ! “.

The Golden Ring , that would decide the lives of the centaurs ……! What would he do , he was just a herdsman . Little did he know , the golden path that laid before him , as he awoke from from his dream.. The Ring in  his finger
glowed and spoke clearly…. “The four points represent the north, south, east and west of this land  . You now have the power….use it wisely Son of HERA..! ” A blurred image of Hera appeared in his mind ,smiling. All these years, he
has secluded himself , tending horses and herds..living in the deep forest apart from the rest, And now, he held the power to unite and make peace for all.   He looked at his herd of stallions standing proud and restless , they knew the task ahead and they were so eager to do his bidding. The winds now blew and whispered what has taken place, and all the centaurs were in an uproar. The untamed spirit inside them cannot accept this , some took to arms against Aggripa , and others took his side for unity and peace….Thus a battle cry was heard in the deepest pits of the forest  the day is now at dawn…..Majestically all in battle armor ,  the centaurs hummed their battled chant ,thumping and clashing weapons, that shook the ground and made the  tremble.
Coming  down from the mountain ,Aggripa rushed to stop the bloodshed  …..It was his chance and time …

Mother Hera he cried, be with me ! The loud thumping stopped , as the strong winds swirled and circled  around the war razzed Centaurs , they could not open their eyes , nor lift their weapons,  vines  have gotten hold of them…As much as they tried the grass , roots have grown   taller that prevented  movement .
Aggripa , waving his hand, the ring  all aglow ….Magic filled the air…”let anyone who has not longed for peace  and harmony stand now before me . Let every centaur who defies what is good, step forward. I will now sever his being from his other half..!”  Looking at every centaur , he saw tears in their eyes , a blue and violet mist covered the field. Looking at his ring , it glowed the same color . It was emitting a strange light that made everyone calm and serene……Putting down their weapons and weeping . “We are so few in numbers yet we are strong in character , deep inside all of us is the logic of man and the wisdom of the ageless, for we have witnessed man and life since the beginning . Shall we not use this for our own benefit ? Let not any drop of a Centaurs blood be wasted this day on !” his voice echoing through the valley and the deep caverns of the mountain . Let not our untamed nature be a hindrance , in fact make it an advantage for adventure and discovery , ” ! Now a red pinkish mist engulfed the valley.
their dark faces glowed of understanding….I will not be King, but your adviser , Aggripa declared…Every tribe and clan has it’s faithful  elder, and that is what it should be…”!

A loud roar ,echoed and thumping began, but it was not a heavy  thump….the centaurs were dancing ,prancing
and celebrating their triumph . Yes , many, many years did they survive , teaching and sharing that , when preserving life a golden mists appear and ..…..as I pluck my golden harp , sweet melodies and tales of old once again emerge to be told ….once again.!

Fairy Dust…Gemini…!

Once , before our time , when Fairies , elves and beautiful creatures freely inhabited our woodlands , lived
” the TWINS “.  The world towered above them , as they were only seven inches tall. Faces so exquisite ,
That made the flowers bloom and the birds sing when they gaze upon them . One had eyes  , the color of
emeralds ,and the other had topaz colored eyes …..Twins they maybe , but you can only tell them apart , by
the color of their eyes , That is …..when they do not change it !
Mica and Anjic were their names .

As they flutter their translucent wings , you could smell an enticing sweet scent  of roses and vanilla .
Fairies had duties , like forest gardening , cleaning , healing and protecting the rea lm . They were the guardians
of the forest ,  each one helped and participated to keep
the balance of …. 
MOTHER NATURE…….The Fairy Queen…was the most radiant and beautiful of all , she held the kingdom
together and kept the creatures in synchronized harmony  . They called her Alma , tall , strong and proud , she
watched over the woodland and all the creatures within.
In those days of magic and  power , a river divided the realm , it’s waters was red in color , and it was said
and forbidden to cross over , as death was beyond it’s shores . Even the grass did not grow near it”s banks , only
dark , desolate dead trees and huge boulders , rocks glistened under the rays of the sun . If one stands close
enough , you could feel the cold chill in your bones .  This strange divide always made the twins curious , they always
always had to know the logical answer , why  ???  Everyday they would peek at the river banks , as they sit from a
distance , perched on a giant mushroom . Always , with eyes gleaming , they silently watched , and every day they
saw nothing .  Till one afternoon , a strange figure seemed to be walking , no ! Floating is more like it . The figure
was wrapped in a mysterious smoke , as it glided on the river banks . Mica , seated on a tall blade of grass ,
swaying with the cool breeze ,jumped and made a loud shriek . So shrill that it rose all the creatures from their
afternoon sleep . Anjic and Mica ran , flew furiously to seek Queen Alma . They told her of the strange smoke
and the figure they have seen.
It was only then , that the queen brought out the revered FAIRY BOOK of LEGENDS . As all stood in
attention , creatures big and small held their breaths as the fairy queen opened the lock . A violet colored vapor
appeared , then green, then blue….and then a voice was heard . “Silence !”, it sang . ” We are the spirits of the
of OLD , we are the WINDS of TIME from the corners of the universe we have come to reveal the secrets of
the ancients , for it is time . All of you have been wondering about the forbidden shores of the Red river. It is the
place where nothing grows and death seems to abound . Eons ago ,Fairyland was kept safe from the turmoil of
mankind , so an invisible dome of fairy dust covered the realm . Now , it seems the dome is cracking and fairyland
needs to be saved . ”  As they spoke , Mica and Anjic looked at each other , not a word was spoken but they
understood one another . They will do what it takes to save their world . So as the elders we speaking ,they flew
high above to seek where the crack was . And gathered all the fairy dust they could find , filling sack after sack
and blowing it all over.  The realm sparkled and gleamed as the dust settled , and once again peace and safety
was restored ….But as they flew higher and higher , the suns rays burned their skin and wings , and they were
falling unconsciously to the earth . A cold breeze caught them, it was Alma , the queen and nestled  them on the
soft rose petals of time . So that when you look at the sky at night , the TWINS could be seen forever as STARS.
Forever blowing fairy dust , lighting and guiding the others through time .

It is during extreme times of trial , when courage and love is UNMEASURABLE , but is rewarded in
TIMELESS wonder , for all to see and remember , for ETERNITY !

And if you were all wondering , the Sparkles that you see in the sky are their EYES….so called GEMINI…..
