Literature
And They Come
And They Come
by Sirenne
The Shadow of Avalon
And they come
with their eyes wide shut
with their ashen tongues and their burning lies
and they come
with their hatred and pickets and
white hoods
and they come
with their guns and their fear and their violence
for our children our siblings
our friends and our neighbors and spouses
they come
And they come
with their white flags
their cowardice
their excuses
they come with their calls for peace but not justice
for calm with no passion
and they come
for our freedom
our wholeness
our blood and our ashes
and they come
for your silence
your white flags
your statements
your blindness
drives them on.

Literature
I Can't Always Tell
Yesterday
I felt ugly
I told myself that even if I wasn't beautiful, I was interesting and strong
And that would have to be good enough
This morning, I woke up
And looked in the mirror
And I realized
I am beautiful
I just can't always tell.

Penance
Penance
by Sirenne
I flee alone
To my tower
all action done in vain
whence the time i was lost inside
a monster's frozen maze
where the shadows echoed voiceless unnamed
shattered by their fear
the minotaur hunting all whose footsteps
echoed in his ears
is this the penance i must pay
is this the karma i must suffer
the pain of all earth's living sum
stamped upon my heart
is this the penance we must pay
is this the sum of what we reap
is the monster raging all we have created for ourselves
where is the end to this labyrinth
the wolves aren't far behind
bring the light and shine it far beyond
the shadows we have made
Alone in my suffering
but i suffer not alone
all the earth's full living mired in their grief
the sword is sharp and made of fear
the castles fall
the bastions crumble
the age of poisoned thought enslaves us
all worlds cry out
devout hearts shout for release
is this the penance i must pay
is this the karma i must suffer
the pain of all earth's living sum
stamped upon my heart

Literature
From the Ashes
From the Ashes
Sirenne
Rise from the ashes of our pain
to discover that we've been remade
Rise from the shadows of night
to see a new dawn
in the lens of our eye
Rise
and see
the ruins behind us
the cord has been cut loose
The ruined landscape of the self
has been rebirthed at last
We rise
to gather here
our gaze turned to the past
of all the fires that scorched our skin
to bring us to this place
Rise from the ashes of our pain
to discover that we've been remade
Rise from the shadows of night
to see a new dawn
in the lens of our eye

Holiday Card Project 2012

It's back!  With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviant

I'm Muse. Thanks for stopping by my page!

I don't always have time to respond to individual comments, so if you've dropped a comment thanking me for faving your art - you're so welcome! Keep up your amazing work!

I'm originally from the tiniest state in the United States, although I tend to flit all over the place in search of adventure, inspiration, and kicks. Right now, I live in upstate New York, where I am studying music (I'm a classically trained mezzosoprano). Although I am primarily a singer, I also play harp, recordari, percussion, and piano, and am hoping to pick up cello and taiko in the next year or two.

When I am not composing world, electronic, or symphonic metal music, I'm usually writing books, taking photos or else posing for them, sewing, dancing, making artisan jewelry, or otherwise creating at my arts studio, Nightkat. I direct a classical ensemble called Geek Musica that specializes in the performance of film and video game scores.

Check out my solo music material: soundcloud.com/sirennemusic

Interests
  • Listening to: Faun - Gaia
  • Reading: The Mammoth Book of Angels and Demons
  • Eating: grapes
  • Drinking: water
Women as Weapons, a new photojournalism project I have started, is now shooting! If you are a female-identifying weapons or martial arts practitioner or enthusiast, and you might want to participate, please drop me a line! The project will consist of photos and personal interviews exploring the theme of female warriorhood in the 21st century.

My ensemble, Geek Musica, will be performing with Blood Moon (which I am also a member of) on February 22nd to raise funds for Aleppo's survivors. We will be contributing funds to The White Helmets and Doctors Without Borders specifically for their work in Aleppo. If you can attend, please buy a ticket! This concert will take place in Albany, New York. Even if you cannot attend but want to help, consider purchasing a ticket anyway to help support us, the Albany Barn (our hosts), and these fine organizations who do such incredible and essential work. Go here to purchase a ticket: albanybarn.org/event/save-alep…

I started a new music project called Umbra Oceania that is Pagan folk and classical music. Right now, I'm working on its first work, "The Orphium," which will be a collection of some of the Orphic hymns set to music plus some original material. Follow me on Facebook: facebook.com/umbraoceania

On a much more personal note, I have recently found myself without a permanent residence. While I'm dealing fairly well with it, it can't go on forever, and I am asking all my supporters to donate $1 or more per month to my Patreon so I can secure permanent housing again. Mental illness and homelessness do not pair well together, and I need your help! $1 per month as a patron will gain you access to ALL the material I post to my patrons-only stream, including music, photographs, short stories and even novels, so pledge if you can! Go here to pledge: patreon.com/nightkatstudio

Thank you for your support!
-Muse
