Quote

Tender breeze, a hint of silence/ Raven down the night and sky/ Tinted clouds, a sheen of velvet/ Echoes separate truth from lies/

Chrome and iron shape the colour/ Purest blue and You and I/ A pale reflection on the water/ Utter sadness in your eyes/

Our love is a storm/ We’re lighter than air/ We travel like clouds/ Our tears are your rain/

Tender breeze, a quiet warning/ Lock the doors, pray for your life/

Pray for your life

"Sapphire"--Seabound

[edit] Testament

Silence. Listen. In the hushed, still black of the night - yea, even this very night - I am there. For you, the night has long been one of many masks, giving you succor and sanctuary. No more.

Now let your masks be in service to Me. I Choose you, Sapphire Veil, and raise you up. No more let your masks hide weakness and shame. Instead, let them hide your power, as the night veils the light of day. Let my mark show upon your brow in the secret places of the world. Go to these places, in Heaven, in Creation and in the Hearts of Men. Find what has long been hidden away by those driven by petty jealousy and lust for power they are not worthy of.

Too long have these things been hidden away. Where has honor and tradition gone, in this day? Where has control of the self, discipline, trust in Heaven? Not gone, but hidden away until the Light shines once more. But the Light cannot shine without the Dark to give it contrast, and I Exalt you, Sapphire Veil, to act as that Dark. Go forth, find the hidden places, and make them your own. Make them you. In My Name.

[edit] Anima Banner

sea_serpent.jpg.jpg

An extraordinarily long and sinuous wyld-touched sea serpent (chimera) of deep sapphire which coils in continuous motion in an intricate pattern of loops, knots and circles swimming in a sea of golden luminescence that sprays the area with delicate, disintegrating waves of pure light. The many-finned and frilled creature sports hundreds of eyes all along its length that glow with a bright blue fire.
