Hi everyone. I am really excited to present this to you all, I have been working very hard on this short story, and have put a lot of my heart and soul into it. I know it is not perfect yet, it is still a rough draft, but I could not wait to publish it, lol. I have been writing a lot, practicing and honing my skills in preparation for the novel I dream of publishing one day. I have learned many things, recognized some weaknesses, advanced in my strengths, and am gaining a better understanding of my own unique language and voice through my writings. I am concentrating on scene descriptions and character building amongst other things, and am looking forward to developing an exchange of dialect and personality between the people I create in my fantasy worlds. And of course, creating conflict, climax and weaving it all together will be a challenge, but a satisfying experience. I am having so much fun, feeling like I am settling in and finding my voice and place in this world through my talents. There is so much to look forward to. This is my baby, and as young as it is, I am still proud of it and am thankful for the opportunity to share it with you all now. The title may be changed in the future. Enjoy the read, and I welcome your comments and feedback. I will be working on the second part soon.And though this part does have extremely passionate and sensual tones, it is not explicit, as the continuing part will be. But I will be fair and give a warning with the next installment. Enjoy and have a good day…..

I had a dream, a lovely dream…..
or was it? It still feels so real…..
A familiar time and place
of ancient memories past,
an exotic world teeming with life
with colors so vivid and bright.
The air all around was alive and inviting
infused with a power and magic that excited me.
I had a peculiar feeling that my presence was known here,
and I was greeted and welcomed in with comforting tones.
A silken gown graced the curves of my body
warm breezes flowing through it’s stream of milky white
that fell in a smooth line from my shoulders.
My skin glowed under a huge silver moon
set like a radiant jewel in a crown of night sky.
The illuminate shine brought to life
this extraordinary world around me,
animating the landscape with the multitude
of shadows that were cast on the ground.
As I took in the beauty of the scene
I grew increasingly aware of another presence.
I was not alone.
I felt a set of eyes boring into me
watching my every move from the shadows.
My heart quickened and my skin started to tingle
as I let the awareness settle into my bones.
I squinted my eyes and strained to see better
and made out the silhouette of what appeared
to be a man, arms crossed, standing beneath a tree
at the edge of the woodline, staring straight at me.
The instinct to panic was quickly overridden with calm,
as though something willed it to be so.
I stood so still, heart racing, as the man
began a slow stride to make his way to me.
Heady, I began to sway in place
growing intoxicated by his presence as he drew close.
Watching helplessly, I noticed two large shadows
following closely behind the man.
It looked like…..Wings….
My god, this man, or whatever he was,
was sporting a set of beautiful goliath size wings,
wings that were black as night.
He stopped a few yards short of reaching me
and as he stood, I could see the heavy rise and fall
of his chest in the moonlight.
From this distance, I saw his eyes glowing
a deep sapphire blue,
twin jewels set in his now obviously handsome, regal features.
His jaw was a straight shot of bone
and though his lips were pressed together
I could tell they were full and bore
the slightest hint of a smile….
a smile that no doubt was a result of his thoughts
and a promise of things to come.
This man was colossal, and carved out like a god
that had been reverently chiseled in stone.
He was gorgeous, flawless, larger than life…..
and the aura emanating from him was potent
and screamed of power and authority….
And, heaven help me, it was focused solely on me.
Though as it were, through all this strength he possessed,
I sensed a heaviness of heart, his years
of existence weighed upon him with an almost crushing force.
Loneliness, hunger, and grief had accompanied
this glorious creature for too long
and something inside me was reaching out to comfort him
in his distress, to relieve his pain and remove his burden
far from him.
I was suddenly craving this man
with a ferocious hunger, and was more
than anxious to have him nearer to me.
He drew his eyebrows together
as though he had heard my thoughts,
his eyes growing more intense
and filled with longing by the second.
” I have been waiting for you” he said suddenly
in a deep, penetrating voice that made my knees weak.
“For a very long time.”
The muscles in his arms rippled
as he clasped his hands behind his back
and took a step forward to close the distance between us.
My heart went into staccato mode
and it was getting harder to catch even breaths.
Anticipation and desire deliciously charged the air
with each painfully slow step he took towards me.
What was wrong with me?
I could not wait to have him in arms reach
and be swallowed up by his enormous body….
God, I was losing my mind….
It was hard to think with my hormones running amuck…..
Our eyes locked in place as he was so close now,
and I saw a shadow move across his face
when he started to speak.
‘For millenia I have combed the earth
in search of you. Always watching, always waiting,
praying that my dreams of you were real.”
This was said with so much emotion
it squeezed at my heart.
Finally, he stopped within inches of me
and I could feel the heat pouring from him in waves.
And too I realized anew and with great appreciation
the sheer size of him.
His shoulders so broad they blocked
out the view of the world behind him.
But that was OK, I had all but lost interest
in the beautiful surroundings.
I drew in a breath, taking in his wild, masculine scent.
Damn, he smelled so good.
And I had a vague thought that I would be finding
out if he tasted as good as he smelled.
His scent wound it’s way around my insides
and my instincts registered something
that my mind could not yet comprehend.
Parts of me that I did not know existed
were coming alive and singing a chorus for this, angel.
There was no doubt this man was an angel.
He was the most magnificent thing
I had ever laid my eyes on.
Realizing my eyes had wandered, tracing
a hot line around his body,
I raised my head to look at his face
and was greeted with a ravenous gaze
that was looking so intently down on me.
Yet his eyes were glistening with unshed tears
that broke my heart.
Through his countenance I could perceive
the storm of emotions that were raging
inside his heart and mind.
Relief turned to passion and disbelief to desire,
his need against his intellect,
and so on they raged.
But none was as overwhelming as the
complete state of euphoria he was in
just from my presence alone,
the fact that I was real and alive
was an enormous relief and miracle
to him, and that was obvious.
Goodness, to be so desired by such a one
as this man made my head giddy
and spin with elation.
I had never been so wanted and desired
in all my life, and had never desired anything
with such an intensity I could barely breathe.
And all this for a man I just met
but felt like I had known for an eternity, just the same.
It felt like I was finally home.
As if he heard me and wanted to show he felt the same
he raised his hand to touch my face
and the contact shot a jolt of pure lust
through the both of us that rocked our souls.
He ran his finger over the outline of my jawbone,
slowly traced the elegant slope of my neck,
and made his way down to
tease the part of my oh so sensitive
breast that was exposed
over the top edge of my gown.
My breath caught and I let out a sigh
and his chest rumbled in a low moan.
From that moment on we were connected
body and soul
our hearts joining together and erupting
in a fervent dance of passion.
TO BE CONTINUED…………..

The morning sun is shining
twin jewels blazing in my eyes
as I bask in the light that reaches to me
I welcome the rays that pour from the skies.
The tree limbs sway in a gentle breeze
casting shadows that flitter across my face
I feel so alive, like I was meant to be
here and now in this shining place.
Bursts of exuberance emit showers from within
and a twinkling sound of joy proceeds from my heart
my body alive and warm with the power of love
I knew I was born for this from the start.
The smile that spreads across my glowing face
speaks the volumes I cannot conceive to say
I pray that heaven receives this blessing in return
this love that visits and energizes me today.
Let me not utter a discouraging word
or quench this radiant spirit that joins me
but like a river let the life flow out of my pores
I hear the spirit say ‘yes’ and I agree.
Soaking in the brilliance of the sun
I give thanks and welcome the god of life
happy are those who draw him inside
and for peace and happiness exchange their strife.

Rosy colors pierce the early morning’s dawn
opening my window for a closer look
the birds’ happy songs greet my ears.

Surrounded by warmth and light
as the sun’s radiance
shines down it’s loving beams upon me.
I rest in peaceful pastures and think of you
longing and waiting for you
to return back to me.
I squish my toes in the soft grass
as I try to find comfort and solace
for my aching heart.
I close my eyes and turn inward
to the place that grounds my
Always searching, always wandering
always waiting, yearning….
for love to bring back
the other half of my heart.
Out there somewhere in the infinite skies
floating by the planets and stars
seeking, looking, wanting….
only to have it’s voice come back
with endless echos of mourning.
Oh that you would send an angel
to absorb some of the pain
a touch of momentary relief
for the soreness in my heart.
for you I shall wait
no other can compare.
One look at you on that fateful day
sealed my fate for eternity.
So here I am
in peaceful pastures
for a world with you in it
a world without end.

Sweet as honey and smooth as silk
soft lips whisper the words
that envelope mine in velvet caresses.
Come sit with me a while, my love
under the shady Oak tree
where I will feed you fruits so sweet
and whisper words of comfort to thee.
Rest your heart in the waters of life
that wind through the depths of my soul
do not fear my fierce desire
your pleasure is mine and my only goal.
Lie your head against my breast
in the place where you belong
this heartbeat you feel can be yours alone
like a dream you have wished for so long.
Taste the passion I offer you freely
take this drink I give you, my life
see the world through my eyes of fire
behold the far reaching of my power so rife.
Tell me the secrets you bury inside
the burdens and sorrows you bear
allow me to ease your turmoil and pain
they’ll flee you with the words of my prayer.
Let my love light a path for your weary heart
as a lighthouse in the storm
you are safe with me from the treacherous seas
safe deep inside me you’ll always be warm.
Arise and let us unite to journey the earth as one
come with me, take my hand and be mine
and I will crown you with the glory of the sun
as you drink from the cup of my wine.

Raindrops splash on my open window pane
night settles as the day has come to a close
a gust of wind blows in the fragrance
of the beautiful night blooming rose.
The rose scented wind beguiles me
caressing my gown, whispering through my hair
defenseless against it’s deceits I stand here
trapped like a fawn in it’s snare.
The sweet scent conjures the passion of buried memories
heated thoughts of you and I
blood red petals float in a steaming porcelain bath
our fevered bodies joined in pleasured sighs.
I close my eyes in silent reverie
as I relive the fantasy scene
my body now flushed in heady desire
remembering the way you made me scream.
Rumbles of thunder rouse me away from you
a sudden flash of lightening and a feeling of forlorn
the bite of reality comes crashing down
for many nights since, your body I mourn.
Blind sighted by your charm you’d slithered in my soul
and lied in wait in my most sacred hiding place
taking shelter in my love, your appetite you satisfied
feasting, gorging, taking what you wanted from my grace……
and now you have left me alone to burn
gone without a trace.

There is a song that is written just for me
I hear it playing, crooning so beautifully
it strums over my heart igniting my soul
restoring the passion my enemy stole.
Sizzling sound waves lap me in sensual lush
my blood pumping forth in a dizzying rush
purging my mind from worldly dissent
cleansing a heart that was utterly spent.
The melody ushers in delightful sensation
worships my body in it’s godly creation
with me sharing secrets that have never been told
my hips sway in rhythm to a ballad of old.
At one with the music that graces the night
I dance with my heart and all of my might
conjuring the elements in breathless desire
all the earth burns for a taste of my fire.
I dance here below but am joined with the spirits
their presence so close to mine I can feel it
I am ushered into their ravishing power
In return my euphoria on them I shower.
~ Celeste ~
I hear a voice call out my name
and speak to a hidden love untamed
my sleeping heart called forth to life
my soul is whisked away from strife.
I hear a heart that beats for mine
a longing for a love divine
a plea to calm the calamity
a touch to restore it’s sanity.
I sense a mind reach out for me
to partake in my blessed divinity
to claim a portion for it’s own
to bask in love to it made known.
I feel the force of gaping needs
that beg me to set the prisoners free
to loosen the bonds that keep them chained
to know the joy of mercy ordained.
I see the mass of human kind
walking to and fro, paying no mind
unaware of the great potential they bear
living, but not knowing what is there.
~ Celeste ~
I close my eyes
let the quiet settle inside
let the peace guide me
to the still passages of the night.
A sound so sweet to my ears
so pure to reach my heart and soul
it’s sound waves tingle over my skin
suspending me in fluid air.
A tug on my hearts compassion
a momentary outburst
a flood of tears erupt
as I weep for something I have not seen
a thing yet lost and not found.
I feel the heartbeat of the universe
the breath of destruction and creation
the death and birth of nebulas and stars
such beauty and power found
in the cloak of the night.
I am no longer afraid
of this present darkness
the fear and turmoil have tried me
there is nothing too horrendous and ugly
nothing so far from the reach
of a saving hand of grace.
On the balcony of my high tower
my eyes travel over the surrounding, majestic seas
a cold, bitter wind lashes my face and through my hair
and threatens to slice me to my heart
as I think of the long voyages made
by many sailors and warriors
that have fought for and protected my life.
I will welcome their weathered and battle weary souls
with a feast and celebration in their honor
for their bravery and steadfast loyalty.
Should their heart’s desire be for home
I shall send them on their way with goodwill
and with my blessing they shall tarry no more
so far away from their homeland.
And if it be their desire to stay
they will be welcomed and rein as lords and ladies
over the lands they have fought to protect
with so much love in their hearts.
They have stood by me without wavering
not questioning my will
nor my words or resolve.
They kept me true in their hearts
in the most sacred of places
and saw me as I was.
They were never deceived nor surprised
my my intentions or motivations.
They are more than great warriors
they are forever my truest of friends.

If you like epic music the way I do, then you will love this. It has everything you like to hear in a good dramatic symphony. Enjoy…..
Sunlight on sheets tangled around four legs
soft giggles and nipping on earlobes
smiling memories of the night before.
