internal ashes by PorcelainPoet internal ashes by PorcelainPoet
the currents have their say
the time is drawing near
washes me away
makes me disappear

and I descend from grace
in arms of undertow
I will take my place
in the great below


-NIN, The Great Below


--

The Phoenix:
A bird in Egyptian mythology that lived in the desert for 500 years and then consumed itself by fire, later to rise renewed from its ashes

I really like this photo...
it's supposed to be ugly.
As is alot of my recent work.
And I'm liking the ugly things I find here on DA, the most hideous and questionable, the most challenging and daring and the most controversial.. are the most beautiful.

.
Note: I find that sometimes I resemble a bird.... hence the phoenix idea.
blur intentional... dont complain.
full view please...

Haha.. I was just browsing through your gallery, and for the first time I think I understood how delightfully distorted this piece is. The dullness of the colours.. the angle of your body.. the fixed melancholy expression on your face..


Please be distorted more often :+favlove:

I really like the angle and perspective. I almost expect to see your hand resting on a piano for some reason. Love the intensity of this piece, because of the blur and half slurred expression on your face.

i love the angle here, and your makeup, lots of times controversy and the pushing of boundaries and what is considered normal is the best and most beautiful work of all
great work as usual, dear

Let's do it next weekend. Only, at 5:00 Saturday is a Beltane ritual I'm going to. Wanna go? You might have fun but you might also have to lie to your parents. In any case, maybe Sunday would be nice.

Beltane ritual...

alright, I'm sorry I forgot... you're wiccan right? or is it pagan?

explain? it sounds cool....

daughtercrow Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2005
I'm Pagan and not quite Wiccan... Beltane is the celebration of spring and the creation of everything new that's blooming. It's all about the joining of the goddess and the god, and it's basically about sex or the joining of opposites to create something new. It's the funnest holiday because everyone's laughing and making jokes (as opposed to Samhain, which is when we dine with our ancestors, that's pretty dark... maybe you'd like that too). In any case, we basically have a ritual to celebrate all the birth and a feast afterward. It would be cool if you came because I might be in charge of the altar for the west, which is a pretty big thing to me... Are you Christian? I didn't think you were. Well, whatever you are, it doesn't exactly matter because no one who comes really believes in the same thing, but everyone has fun, anyway.

wow..it sounds pretty interesting, I'd probably like to be there to see it..I've heard of Samhain a little bit..haha.. my family would throw a fit if they knew I would ever be attending that.... or any sort of ritual of any kind..but thats easy to hide, if I were to attend.

hell no..I'm not christian...... in fact, I'm sometimes a bit close-minded to christian people..just because of living with my mother.... who's a radical conservative christian..it gets difficult to put up with.

But I'll see what I'm doing over the weekend..and you can tell me more about it at school.

Took me a while to actually like this.

At first I didn't understand where the hell you were going with the phoenix-thing.
Cuz ya know, this picture is all dark and black-and-white and all that.
But then I looked at the title and saw the "ashes" part.

And got it. :nod:

I love what you've been doing lately. :salute:
