Kin name: Elderberry Dusk
Naming dream:
Fading, falling dark, here in the clearing,
here among the bushes, green leaves grey with evening,
stemmed clusters of berries black with juice, black with night.
They burst between the teeth,
sweet, tart, rich,
and dye the tongue.
Sunset lingers, grazing with you,
in the elderberry dusk.

Kin name: Rising Moon
Naming dream: Night. When quiet settles and sleep overcomes the tired eyes of the little ones and the older ones alike. Yet, just before the darkness comes, there is a time of in-between, a time when light fades and darkness encroaches, however, there is no fear to be had. There, rising, rising, beautiful and ever-present in the darkening sky, the moon claims its place above. Perhaps not always big and round, not always bright and willing to share its light but to watch the rising moon is the best moment of the day drawing into night.

Kin name: Raven at Heart
Naming dream:
Dark thorns creeping
The skies weeping
A nightly call
Cold chill in fall
A raven at heart.

Clouds cover night
The moon is bright
A frightened cry
Come say goodbye
A raven at heart.

There's no rush
But sudden blush
Hidden treasure
Careful measure
A raven at heart.

Kin name: World Crashing Down
Naming dream: Yesterday, today, tomorrow,
It comes.

The feeling of hopelessness,
Of emptiness,
The end nearing ever closer.

It's coming, here and now,
The world crashing down.

Find me,
I'll remind you how to breathe,
Hold you near.

The world crashing down,
Find me and it lives on.

Kin name: Stars Above
Naming dream:
What do you think of those below us?
Those on the land, in the water and the air.
Strange things, with all that moving about.
Do they look at us, shining brightly above them?
Or do they just keep moving, never noticing?
The Stars Above wondered at the life below them,
Curious if their light shined bright enough.
The Stars Above continued to watch and shine.

Kin name: Nothing at All
Naming dream:

The great skybeast churned and writhed above her, its inky pelt shimmering with an endless mass of stars.
It shook its antlers and blinked down at the lone Kimeti staring up at it from the peak of the glassy mountain.
The wind lifted strands of her night sky mane, mixing it with the eternal blanket of the heavens.
The world below her was black crystal, jagged, shooting upward from emerald green grass which carpeted endless rolling fields.

Moonlight charged the landscape, lighting the world in silver fire and coating the flora in stardust.
A landscape so alien, like nothing she had seen before.
And yet.. something felt familiar about this place. Though what she couldn't quite decide.
Lifting her nose to the sky she breathed in the endless darkness, the coldness of space.
Her eyelashes fluttered open. Moonlight igniting her golden eyes which shone like fireflies in the night.

The great beast took her breath away, ghostly plumes vanishing into the otherworld.
Never before had she seen something so magnificent.
"How can I compare to you, great beast? Am I Nothing at All?"
So much greater it was than she could ever dream to be. She felt so small beneath that burning gaze.

"You are not nothing, child."
The sky rumbled, lowering its head to bridge the distance.
"We all have a hidden beauty no other can see until we embrace and share it with the world. This great valley below you is the landscape of your soul. How can this be Nothing at All?"

The doe sighed softly. Astonished that this beautiful place was a part of her.
Reaching out she kissed the great skybeast on the tip of its nose.
The creature smiled.
Shattering into a thousand inky petals it encircled her before floating away towards the moon.
She was not nothing.
This place burned so brightly within her.
And so she would burn brightly in the world.

Kin name: Place in Time
Naming dream: So long ago, Another life
I could feel your heart beat
It's not a dream, remember us
I can see it in your eyes
We'll find a place in time
A place in time beyond the stars
We'll find a place in time
A place in time to call our own

Username: Scaramouche Fandango
Kin name: Night-Blooming Flower
Naming dream:

she wilts in the sun, sees her scales sliding from her nose one by one, watches the big one on her shoulder peel away, until she lies there, formless and shapeless, like the broken stems of dandelions crushed by the thunder of hooves.

it's only at night, when the stars wink forth one by one, she comes to, eyes sparkling like diamonds, songs and wit burbling forth from delicate throat and laughing mouth- here she is admired and admires, for the silver light of the moon makes everything beautiful. she flirts and fancies and whirls in the scent of jasmine and bryony, heliotrope and camellia. the night is young and lovely, and so is she.

in the morning, she'll die again, and again, and again, and she knows it- but this is her dream, her night, and the night will last forever.

Kin name: Forget Your Past
Naming dream:

she turns back over her shoulder again,
heart filled with anxiety.
hooves weighed down with uncertainty.
bearing the burden of relation.

they are her past.
but in them, she sees no future.

oh, if only.
if only the heart could forget the weight it bears in vain.

Naming dream:
Lift your chin, and harden your heart.
Dry your tears, and walk away.
Forgive, but do not forget.
The same mistake will not happen again.
You have No Tears Left to Cry.

Kin name: Mistaken for Strangers
Naming dream:

as we wander the night,
side by side,
we are,
mistaken for strangers.

perhaps it’s the smile,
that never reaches our eyes,
or the subtle distance,
between us

together,
but not

together,
but lonely

Kin name: Half-Remembered
Naming dream:

A recollection
Like a spider’s web
Dipped in dew
Barely there in the morning sun

A passing shadow
Glanced over the shoulder
There one moment
Gone the next

A stranger met in the night
A passing glance
A shy smile

A dream
At the edge of your memory
Barely kept when morning comes
And just like that

I am gone

Kin name: Loss
Naming dream:

A quiet and dark corner,
A deserted shelf.
Cobwebs where something used to be,
Emptiness in place of fullness.

There but currently gone.
It is missing from its place,
It’s absence causes pain and grief.

It is now loss.
It is now me.
