Hyperion

Look into the sky. Feel the sun of Helios on your face. Sleep; feel Selene's moonlight on your skin - rise to greet the dawn of Eos. You will know my thoughts well.

The Mermaid-05

The Mermaids Chapter 5
Thanks to Hyperion for giving us more to think about. M

Return of Dragons

Give me flesh made for sinking in ocean dreams and the nearness of you and only you. Give me mermaid skin and ivory grins that only you can bring forth. Show me a periwinkle home and your melody closer than anything else. Give me the sea and you and all our worries on the shelf. -Mermaid Skin, J. R. Rogue, Le Chant des Sirènes

The Mermaid-05

Mermaid Skin

Chapter 5

A bright moon shone across a spit of beach nestled between dark monoliths of stone. A lone figure sat serenely on the sand at the water’s edge with legs tucked under the pale skin of bare thighs washed in the light. Dark pupils the size of nickels reflected the heavenly orb. A narrow nose flared as she pursed her lips together. Only the countenance of her face gave a hint to the yearning that dominated her life. She sat on the beach…

The Mermaid-03

Chapter Three from Dragon Master Hyperion. The first chapel was great and the video at end was sensuous. Let’s see what Chapter Three has in store. M

Return of Dragons

“There is a particular kind of suffering when you love something greater than yourself. A tender sacrifice. Like the pained silence felt in the lost song of a mermaid, or the bent and broken feet of a dancing ballerina.” ― Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

Dark Eyes and Deadly Sins

   “Fever, like deadly sin, took her from me. I hear that mournful voice and see once black pearls alive under long lashes turn dull and dry. Selfish fear of loss grips my soul. A dagger pushes into my heart and tears fall on her inflamed skin while I try to tend to her.”

The Love of Sea and Shore

   The buzz of alcohol hummed in my head behind the cacophony of drunks hustling each other and the girls that served them. The dim light in the bar and Derek’s distant tone lulled me into a half dream as his story took shape in my mind.

The Mermaid

I can’t read Hyperion’s–The Dragon Master just once. He expresses passion, revenge, betrayal….into each chapter. Enjoy. M

Return of Dragons

“I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.”

― T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

Chapter 1. Real Mermaids Aren’t Like That

Thirty days running the Goldie River on the turtle’s tail of Papua New Guinea chasing rebels left me exhausted and wild-eyed. I was watching out for any man or beast that would try to stop me from my rendezvous with an ice-cold beer. We headed south through the twisting valleys,  jungle, and rolling mountains until the canopy parted revealing blue sky and cotton candy clouds running straight for the Coral Sea.

The team passed east of the Owen’s Corner outpost then…

For the Love of Meera

Chapter 4, Scene 1

White ripples of light drifted along the hull of the old Chris Craft. The gentle undulations of the Coral Sea cast a spell on the boat as it rocked in the light green tinge of liquid light and shadow. The anchor held her fast. My fingers ran along the keel feeling for cracks or movement out of sync with the sensual rise and fall of her bow in the calm seas.

Echoes

A little story about PTSD and finding one’s way through reflection and seeking the right kind of help. Often, the wounded turn to drugs and alcohol or high risk behaviors to drowned out the unwelcome thoughts and emotions. That only serves to further bury the living in the ninth ring of hell.

Return of Dragons

I parked in a small lot behind the building and paused to compose myself. The rhythmic thump of my heartbeat in my ears grew louder as I stepped out into the heat. The ramp to the double glass doors was a tunnel collecting the roar of traffic and distant construction. A fine sheen of sweat collected on my forehead and the small of my back. The distant sound of guns filled my mind, and for a moment, I stood at the door with one foot in reality and the other in a distant past.

World of Pains

The Mermaid – Scene 1

Here’s a small diversion from the nose biting, ear pulling, and eye poking taking place all around us. Stay grounded my friends. We’re going to make it.
