"My Home, My Space" by Bambi Chicque

“My Home, My Space” by Bambi Chicque

☽ ↭ ☾

My Home, My Space

I am not alone as I gaze

There is a peace with spiritual delight

My tranquil world within the planet’s haze

All full moons are upon us tonight

Ne’er til land the Heavens spew

Stray stars quicken for love’s embrace

My traveling companion howls hereto

This is my home, my comfortable space.

I thought it was about time to update my profile photo

and have had an idea in mind for a while.

Upon flipping over The Plastik’s new

Areiya Circlet Silver RARE

and

CHARRY’S new

Nevermore GOLD Headpiece RARE,

the time was perfect to

put my wardrobe together for this idea!

Ultimately, my Saturday was full of posing with

various outfits and decor and I finally completed

a few of the photos in the wee hours of

Sunday morning, before Church….wheeew!

Hope you enjoy!!

"Poe's Secret Garden" by Bambi Chicque

“Poe’s Secret Garden” by Bambi Chicque

 ☽ ↭ ☾

Poe’s Secret Garden

I know of a secret place

One Poe found within his inks

The plague was just one clue…

To find peace under a roof and beyond the wind

Turn every corner with awe and regard

To treasure your neighbors whilst they are here

For in return your legacy shall be sward in honor

Year after year.

Poe knew the misfortunes of those who were plagued

And framed his stories without cerfew not so vague

The favored mask of beauty graced one and all alike

No shaming or gossip spoiled those of Venezia

Proving to usher all folks unruffled simply as one.

So Poe wrote stories of mystery, art and macabre

With much impact on American and international literature.

“My whole existence has been the merest Romance,” Poe wrote,

the year before his death, “in the sense of the most utter unworldliness.”

Sadly he didn’t really turn his pen into grand profit while he still lived,

But he has surely left us his legacy as we forever love him for

His poems, short stories and, of course, The Raven for one.

And we dress in our masks and put on lavish charades

Where to relive our passions from his etching of words

With the chronicles and journeys how he kept our minds at play

He surely had his own secret place in his mind and all his way.

So, I found it in my own measure

and captured a piece of his thoughts

I hope you enjoy this for yourself

It’s Poe’s Secret Garden

Never to be forgot.

It’s quite late and I finally finished this photo I took yesterday morning

with more amazing creations from a handful of our

precious Designers in Second Life!

The Secret Affair ended today, but the memories

of all their detailed construction of Edgar Allan Poe’s

recognition through their craft

will fill the pages of the net,

And of course, Flickr, too!

"Harpy's Lure" by Bambi Chicque

“Harpy’s Lure” by Bambi Chicque

♥☼*´*☼♥

Harpy’s Lure

I have a human soul

With quickness and prowl

I feed for love

And yearn with a feathered heart

To nest once more

Upon gardens and nourished timbers;

My lure of capture

One cannot ignore

To lay at the loft through my wispy door

Where our dreams shall forever glimmer.

                  by Bambi Chicque

♥☼*´*☼♥

*giggles* Hope you don’t mind my flirty poems;

I have been doing this since I began my blog and have

had many compliments to my related photos!

My poetry-writing days began in my elementary school years

where mentoring Teachers encouraged my writing!

♥☼*´*☼♥

I wanted to show you a close up of the lovely Frig Skin in her Honey hue by

Ab.Free which has a sweetness, a little glimmery shine and youthful

appeal!  Look closely, too, at Even-Tide’s dreamy “Some Fur” tattoo; perfect

for wearing with any role-play or winged togs!

I’m feathered with deviousMind’s stunning “Harpyia” set

and I long to shoot more photos showing off Chandra’s entire sets!

Here is another close shot of Even-Tides “Pretty Patches”

upper body tattoo available in a fantasy array of colors at her

 Medieval Fantasy Fair 4 Gacha!

♥☼*´*☼♥

I have more photos to post, but I am rushing off this evening for a couple of days

at the Ranch….(a little R&R and horse riding for me!)

so I shall return before the 28th (closing of MMF4) to include

more lush items and adornments at this round of  Medieval Fantasy Fair 4 !!

"Watching The River Run" by Bambi Chicque

“Watching The River Run” by Bambi Chicque

☼*´*☼

Inspired by…

Watching The River Run…Song & Lyrics by Kenny Loggins…

….Cause I am the river and you are the shore.

And it goes on and on, oh, watching the river run,
Further and further from things that we’ve done,
Leaving them one by one.
And we have just begun watching the river run.
Listening and learning and yearning.
Run, river, run.

Winding and swirling and dancing along,
We pass by the old willow tree
Where lovers caress as we sing of our song,
Twisting together when we greet the sea.

☼*´*☼

One of my all time favorite songs, I do pull out the CD

from time to time and indulge the memories of their earlier concerts!

Ok, so back to the business at hand…

☼*´*☼

My thrills to bring you more news of the Medieval Fantasy Fair 4

"Garden Of Amsvartnir" by Bambi Chicque

“Garden Of Amsvartnir” by Bambi Chicque

☽ ↭ ☾

This is my rendition of Amsvartnir Lake!

“Garden Of Amsvartnir” – A Nordic Tale

☽ ↭ ☾

In the beginning, before the heaven and the earth and the sea were created,

the great abyss, Ginungagap, was without form and void, and the spirit of

Fimbultyr moved upon the face of the deep, until the ice-cold rivers, the Elivogs,

flowing from Niflheim, came in contact with the dazzling flames from Muspelheim.

This was before Chaos.

"Surge Of The Moon" by Bambi Chicque

“Surge Of The Moon” by Bambi Chicque

SURGE OF THE MOON

In a time when man is hungry

The game of hunt is a driven force to survive.

May our aim be true by arrow

And have mercy for no pain to the flock we pursue.

Water our harvest and this glorious nature

May the moon point us along our way,

We pray to return safely

To our lodges and families.

Bless this day that we shall once more feed again.

Rusted Time Just Like Clockwork

Rusted Time Just Like Clockwork

۵♕۵

RUSTED TIME JUST LIKE CLOCKWORK

With much anticipation for a steamy awaited venture;

I snatched my flighty robotic sidekick, Moon Shadow,

as escort for an acceptance to a royal gala and affair.

I noticed my grunge-dated envelope revealed a faded time stamp.

Where had all the time gone?

What Year of the Lord is it upon my newly fated eve?

I am quite sure my clock still works.

Or had it stopped with a tattered tide?

My dresses within my wardrobe had rusted to a blended gold.

The celestial sphere radiated in an auspicious hue

blowing dust and powders amid my booted feet.

My motor car transposed to a shoddy heap.

Oh dear me,

I fear I seem to have rusted in some sundry state or prime.

But dismay not,

Just like clockwork,

I shall still be on time.

Remember The Alamo

Remember The Alamo by Bambi Chicque

Remember The Alamo by Bambi Chicque

Yes, I am back from an 8-week traveling real life adventure!

First, I want to thank my friends and followers for the emails, pm’s and inquiries

to my where-abouts!

I came home with around 2000 photos from my travels; some to be posted on my

personal photography website and my travel blog!

And….I missed you all, too!

☜  ❤  ☞

So, my first assignment was to prepare an article within the San Antonio realm.

As I put together photos I mentioned to my sister that it’s really difficult to take a picture of

The Alamo without having a lot of people on the grounds.

Quickly I did a SecondLife Destination Guide search to see if anyone had developed

this as a build and to my excitement I found The Alamo!

My nephew was with me while I jumped in to take screenies of this most accurate

and detailed sim that I have seen

(among hundreds more that have inspired true likeness to the “real”)

and he was in just as much awe as I was!

☜  ❤  ☞

“Remember The Alamo!”

Who could not visit San Antonio without visiting The Alamo!

“Remember The Alamo”, a sort of San Antonio motto,

refers to the battle cry of the earlier Texan’s

striving endeavor for independence from Mexico.  General Santa Ana’s Mexican Army seized

The Alamo after an exhausting fight to death by our Texas heroes amid what was once a

Spanish Catholic mission, turned fort.  The name “Alamo” derives from Spanish cavalry members

who nicknamed the mission after their own village of Alamo de Parras; meaning “cottonwood”.

I bet some do not know that there were originally 6 organized groups who wanted

ownership of The Alamo during 1836 when Texas was in a state of revolutionary flux

where the former Mexican state had broken away.

The list:  Monarchists desired Texas to be subjugated to the Spanish Crown,

The Confederation of Anglos and Tejanos had their own ideas

for Texas to be a republic independent

(along with a rebel confederation which was led by Sam Houston), the fledgling nation of the

United States preferred Texas to tie with them, particular Federalists preferred Texas

as a Mexican government and  the sixth group, members of the Centralists wanted

Texas to be a part of Mexico but ruled by a national government.

On March 6, 1836 the Confederation of Anglos and Tejanos, dominant Hispanic landowners,

were indoors of The Alamo amid approximately 200 desperate men from all over

the U.S. and realized they were in need to face a helpless battle to defend their aspirations

for Texas with their lives; not realizing there was no aid on the way.

During two weeks of bloodshed engagement,

finally Santa Anna was fiercely knocking on their fort’s door.

By dawn of that historical day, March 6, 1836, the hostel Mexican soldiers took the Alamo.

The hidden Texian children, women and slaves (along with James Walker Fannin) were

executed by General Santa Ana’s order on March 26, 1836.  And according to historical records,

there was not a single rebel fighter left alive to tell the tale of this historic battle.

Some 600 Mexican troops perished in this battle;

which tells me our 189 or 200 heroic and brave men put up a great fight indeed.

History tells us of one lone nonmilitant slave, known only as John,

lived to tell the provisional rebel government details of the fort’s battle.

So the month which followed that historical conflict, the wailing cry of “Remember The Alamo”

became the rally inspiration to gather the rebels again and march onward towards their goal.

Finally at San Jacinto (now named Houston, Texas) the commander of the brigade and

newly formed rebel volunteers, Sam Houston, led us into victory during another month long

and exhausting fight for the freedom of Texas.

On April 21, 1836, Houston heralded 910 men to march the plains outside

of San Jacinto and shot cannons toward the surprised Mexican forces.

The 20-minute battle was short and fierce.  The Mexican soldiers had been caught off guard

and were completely vanquished by our battle cries echoing amid the smoke,

gunshots and whistles of cannons shooting by “Remember The Alamo!”.

As for myself, I cannot drive through or visit San Antonio without stopping to walk

the grounds of The Alamo.

Every time I visit the old mission I feel proud to belong to Texas as I read through

the historical plaque information and logs displayed about.

Today, the citizens of San Antonio (as so in Texas and the depths of The United States)

are made up of a multitude of nationalities.  There is a common sense of friendliness and

scores of politeness in sharing of history and culture

embedded into the people I chance upon while there.

I see pleasing smiles on everyone’s faces and have been graced with kindly conversations;

from those who were born in the area all the way to transplanted

folks whom all seem proud to call San Antonio their home.

In closing, I certainly “Remember The Alamo” in my own special way and I most certainly

urge anyone who contemplates a visit to San Antonio to be assured of a wonderful experience.

Take your camera!

☜  ❤  ☞

And if you are in SecondLife ~ TAKE SCREENSHOTS!

Make sure to venture through the corridors, paths, gardens and grounds of THE ALAMO

and take the time to read through this quite authentic rendition of the mission!

Alamo Rose by Bambi Chicque

Alamo Rose by Bambi Chicque

The San Antonio Rose” is a signature song by Bob Wills

(who btw was born in my Mother’s home town of Turkey, Texas).

When I see a rose or think of a rose, two things come to mind.

One, the song “The San Antonio Rose” and second,

“The Yellow Rose Of Texas” which is a traditional folk song and

is my Mother’s favorite flower!

I selected a Spanish lace style pant set, put my hair up and picked some roses

to pose in front of The Alamo’s grand superstructure of this real historical site!

The photo effect is one I devised myself to give it a festive painted feel

and my choice in attire was to mix the new with the old

since The Alamo is so alive to me, personally, today!

I hope you enjoy!
