Ifrit: Details

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

More close-up view of the more detailed parts of my 'Ifrit' pic. Note the Star of Solomon and horns on her headpiece---signs of an older, Babylonian origin. Also all the beads she's adorned with--she's a wind spirit, and in ancient Middle Eastern traditions, such spirits' presence was heralded by the tinkling of their crystal jewelry. She's wearing red jasper and bloodstones. The butterfly wings are also significant--they were a sacred symbol of wisdom. King Solomon is to this day featured in stories involving butterflies, such as Kipling's 'The Butterfly That Stamped.' I had a lot of fun doing this pic--but it took FOREVER, especially the beaded belt.

Haven

Another vampire poem, this one more vague than most. It's about loneliness.

A Vampire Day-Talisman

Main influence for this poem was 'The Vampire Diaries' book quartet by L.J. Smith.

Symbiote

This is the closest thing to a truly horrific poem I've ever written. It's really weird and fractal.

The Quest

A l'il unicorn poem. Nuthin' special, but I do like the imagery.

Dream (Scarlet)

Vampire poem. My attempt at a more traditional poetry style.

Observance

This started out as a vampire poem and just ended up being plain surreal. It was my first published poem too!

Invocation--Leto

Another poem from my invocation series. I don't like this as well as the other one though...
