“There was a time when the grandeur of stars in the sky did not exist. Back when the Great Kings of our past graced this earth with their presence.” The crowned creature lifts his large muzzle to look up into the star-shaped figures that beheld the astonishing glory above. “They lived and breathed, just as you and I do now.”

“Ho…how did they become a part of the sky?” a tiny spotted Cheetah cub speaks up from her nook hidden beneath the mighty Lion.

The Lion’s gaze briefly lowers to the three orphaned cubs at his paws, to look tenderly into their innocent eyes.

“They became the stars by the grace of our Creator. There was once a time when humans and animals walked side by side together, in a glorious garden…” the deep voice of the Lion dropped to a silent whisper. The memories of a long forgotten time playing out in the expression on his face, making it soft and fatherly. “Over time, men began to change.  They no longer looked at us as equal creatures worthy of dwelling on this earth. They made us their prey, for their own pleasures sake. Your ancestors, who had once ran alongside children as companions and friends, ran from them. Those of us that escaped witnessed our parents, siblings and even our own cubs killed in front of us….”

“You saw your family killed too?” the young gray wolf pup asked. He moves his eyes to the sky above, spying out a starry shape that reminds him of his mother. “My mother died protecting me from humans. I…I hid in a bush as they ripped her beautiful pelt off her body…. Th…they tore her fangs from her mouth and laughed as they placed them around their necks….” At the terrifying memories, tears start to roam down the cub’s long muzzle. His companions, the Cheetah and Gorilla press in closer to his flank to comfort him. Sharing similar horrible memories that he has had to endure.

The massively large Lion wraps his long tail around the cubs. “We shall never forget our loved ones,” he speaks softly, affectionately. “We also must never forget the sacrifices they made for us.”
“It hurts so much though…” the young Gorilla sniffles back a cry of her own. “I miss my mama and papa so much…”
“Me too,” both the Cheetah and Wolf cub sob their agreement in unison.

“The Creator, who has loved our kind from the very beginning has shown love and grace to our ancestors. Before the evil of men ruled, the dark night sky was an endless abyss of inky gloom, with only the moon hanging occassionaly above the earth. The animals resigned themselves to the worst.  They had given up, drained of hope and despair, plunged in to an alien midnight.  But then a new fire glowed when a mysterious horizon emerged with unimagined stars that shined in the dark sky.

When men had lost their souls, the Creator vowed that even if our names would not be remembered, our faces always would. In all His wonder, He created the stars through our ancestors spirits. So whenever you miss your loved ones, all you have to do is look up into the sky and find their faces among the stars,” the Lion encourages thoughtfully.

A silence falls over the four creatures as they gaze up into the animal shaped night sky overhead. The clarity of the night allows them to look into the faces of the Great Kings of their past, of long forgotten names and faces that had once roamed the earth.
The Great Kings of Our Past
This is my half of a collaboration with my best friend Islandstar and her piece The Great Kings of Our Past that we created for the CollaborativeMinds contest, 'Awareness of the arts, Into the Stars'.

Islandstar and myself are extremely strong wildlife supporters, (especially when it comes to the big cats). So we wanted to create something powerful that would make people stop and think. We don't have to do much to help, we just need to show a sincere compassion towards the animals (and humans) around us. To take a stand when others are suffering.

A couple small lines in this piece were inspired by a news article written on April 1, 1969 titled 'Modern man Skeptical About Idea of Afterlife'. It was an article that my mom got last year when my grandma passed away, it was one my granddad had clipped before he passed away long ago.
Inky gloom. Beheld astonishing glory, They resigned themselves to the worst. They has given up, drained of hope, plunged into an alien midnight. But there, a new fire glowed. On an impenetrable horizon there emerged an unsuspected star.

If you do happen to :+fav: this piece please take a moment to :+fav: Islandstar's half of this collaboration!

I encourage any comments and critiques.

Wanna read a bit more about my coming to dA and my art?

Review from :iconbetwixtthepages:
'Christianonfire7 is a lovely, kind hearted deviant with strong beliefs and a gallery filled with heart. Her poetry is beautiful and will bring the poet in you to the forefront; her photography is inventive and often catches a glimpse into a different world, a world we aren't all privy to. If one thing in her gallery doesn't inspire and awe you, keep looking--you're bound to find a reason to add Christianonfire7 to your watch list.'

The day dusk did not sleep
The day dusk did not sleep.
You stepped into my life when those bullies haunted me,
you stood in front of me and clenched your fist.
Told them to back off and leave me alone,
they feared you, so they obeyed your warning.
Once they were gone you turned to me,
took my hand and helped me up.
Then looked into my eyes,
and captured me with your smile.
That was the day the mountains shook,
the day when the oceans went silent.
When time stood still for the very first time.
When the colors in the sky didn't change from that golden ray,
painted with those pinks and purples.
It was the day dusk did not sleep.
You slide your hand in mine,
made it clear for the whole world to see.
That I was yours and you were mine.
And when I started to doubt the motion,
you simply leaned closer and kissed my cheek,
and whispered in my ear.
"I love you."
That was the day the mountains shook,
the day when the oceans went silent.
When time stood still for the very first time.
When the colors in the sky didn't change from that golden ray,

Pay it forward February 1st 2013 My sinI bow at His Throne,
And praise how I love Him so.
I write poetry to infuse words so divine
To show Him that I mean each line.
I rage about sin in a holy confession…
Tick…tock…tick tock…
But my confession is this,
I'm the sinner needing Salvation.
I down talk the other sins,
But mine is the biggest.
For it consumes my very being.
Tick tock…tick tock…
'I love him.' I try to tell God,
Like that would make Him understand.
That He can bypass me and my shame.
I'm fooling only the naïve part of me.
So I roll up this newspaper, pretend…
Pretend like the headlines don't matter.
But its screaming out on the page.
Tick tock…. Tick tock…
I'm a sinner with only One Way out.
I'm an adulterer with only One Way out.
I'm a liar with only One Way out.
I'm a failure with only One Way out.
I'm dead with only One Way to Live.
Christ died on the cross for me,
Bought every single lie I believe.
He was nailed to that wood for my sin.
The whips He endured for

Pay it forward March 4th 2013 These wordsI spit bullets and speak daggers.
Your emotionless shields are your only defense,
against these words that kill like a disease.

Hey there, have I been missed lately?

So I have been VERY VERY inactive on here for quite a while now. Sorry to all my dA pals for not spamming you with favs like I used to do.. ;)

Here is Brief catch up on my life-

First off, I WON NANOWRIMO AGAIN LAST NIGHT! My fifth straight year doing this amazing contest and my fifth straight year of winning it. With a full time job it was not easy but I did! It was not as hard as last year by any means though, last year was the toughest...because of the theme of my novel and then because of my mom going to the hospital. This year was better by far.

Speaking of job, I have been a waitress for four months now. Strangely it has SOARED BY.

I am currently fostering another pup, his name is Aashish and he is a nine month old German Shepherd dog, I've had him two weeks now and he has a possible adopter going to meet him this weekend.

Life, though having a new job has given me a little bit of purpose and distraction, I am in no way better than I was last year. The loss of my dad still crushes me under its weight, the pain I feel has not dimmed or lessened... if I would allow myself to, I would cry every single day from the hole inside of me, but I can't so I don't...I just force the tears back (mostly). Some days my mind still fools me into thinking he will walk through those doors again and I can run into his arms. Then I remind myself that will never happen, not until I am reunited with him in Heaven....

I really want to encourage myself to return to dA and get at least a little more active. Who would want that to happen?

How has everyone been?
