Once In A Blue Moon

Posted Sep 23, 2007, 9:43:33 PM UTC

It sways in the gentle breeze,
Spirit longing to be set free.
Crescent Moon bloodied by the black of Fate,
Bejeweled chains of Hate imprisoning he which desires freedom,
As onyx wings of innocence flutter gently in the night.
Thoughts of such taint never leaving,
Growing more with each day’s passing.
Eating away the Spirit,
Just as the poison acid of the ivy slowly erodes the strong stone of these brick walls.
Longing of a different life;
Shadowing all else,
Eclipsing every path of hope and light,
Each road as unseen, as the Blue Moon.
Rare and unnaturalβ€”unreal.
Only upon the Blue Moon shall that which has been caged, be set free.
Only Once In A Blue Moon.

Meh, I wanted to write a poem or something for this pic, even thought this isn't up to my usual par where poetry is concerned, but it was written rather quickly and I didn't feel like killing myself over it.

Just an original pic of some random being. It was actually started back in January of 2005 and I just finished it a week ago>.<

The scanner totally f-ed it up--the purple didn't come out the way I wanted it to be seen on the comp...>.< Oh well... perhaps when I get to school I'll see if I can scan it better.

    This is a very nice picture. One thing though try to use more colors to make things look more real. right now it looks okay but a larger range of colors would bring it out more. Like in the brown parts using more color values would bring the image to life. Big Smile thank you for sharing

      Yeah, I wasn't much pleased with the way it came out either, the scanner effed up the colors a lot to begin with, but I messed up quite a bit when I coloring certain parts anyhow. And it was my first time coloring a picture depicting night time and it was difficult to make everything seem like it was night time yet still have color. That was the last ditch attempt with the moon and sky outside. >.<
