FIRE BLOSSOM by nicetsukichi by nicetsukichi
Lets Dance by nitchwarmer by nitchwarmer
Eye of HeavenAmidst the rolling hills
of the jap'a'nan
where the mists of untimely ghosts
walk with dance
like forgotten lovers hand in hand
walks a lady wearing a gown of silk embroidery
picturing orchids and locusts
embraced in loves last dance
she drifts through the valleys
with eyes closed in memories of dreams
feel a new found reality
that have seen these hills before
caressing the petals of flowers in bloom
bare feet walking over pebbled streams
where the blossoms of cherry trees
bob and dip in dance of currents that never stop
the heat of day can sometimes be sublime
or hot like the feel of mounting passion on the land
a fan in hand to be used gently wafts cool
as the lady continues on her journey
to the base of the temple adorned with gifts
left by others - a multitude of paper cranes
in the traditional origami style except
for the symbols of love on some
and the eyes of hope on others
entering the temple
scents of flowered oils with breath inhaled
torches banded to walls flicker and dance

.:The Lady Of The Fan:.Shadows crept over her painted white face. She swiftly signalled engaging with the person; the object in her hand fluttering, and softly shutting. Her painted red lips curved up in to a smile. They moved in synchronisation each elegantly, standing gracing their figures. Their long dresses inches from the floor. Each dipped their upper halves to each other their eyes briefly shutting, the black eyeliner visible that decorated their eyelids. Smiling they exited on opposite sides of the dimly lit room; small torches where held on the dark wooded walls by engraved metal brackets. As they exited, the last of the flame light licked their backs as the darkness of the grove engulfed them.

FAN AND BLOSSOM WINNER




The Winner of the "Fan and Blossom" Contest: Inspired by the Group Logo

An Unexpected Guest by *Saraais on deviantART

Admins

*********************************************************
****************** GROUP INTRODUCTION ******************
*********************************************************


WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?

Oriental-Fantasy is a group dedicated to works of art related to or influenced by stories and folklore of the Orient(the east).

A couple of examples of such works maybe:
"a scene from the Arabian Nights" or "a depiction of the Chinese Zodiac"

WHO CAN JOIN?

Everyone!!!!! This group is for everyone who wants to enjoy an alternative fantasy world influenced by the East. It does not matter where you are from or what style of art you use in your own work. This is a truly GLOBAL GROUP :)

WHAT IS THE ORIENT?

The Orient is the east and it covers countries and regions starting from the eastern Mediterranean and Mesopotamia, through to the Middle-East, Near-East, Asia and the Far-East.

WHY THE ORIENTAL?

Western fantasy and folklore is widely available in DA and nearly everyone in the World is now familiar with the influence of Hollywood and the English Language.

We all love a story that separates us from the reality of our daily lives, and we all indeed enjoy and love Western fantasy, but wouldn't it be nice to find, learn and promote some of the lesser known fantasies of the orient and hopefully find our selves new, different and equally enjoyable stories to spread?

Sorry our admins were away on real life problems; that is the only reason why the group has been neglected if you resubmit the submissions will be reconsidered. Sorry about this.
