Failure

Failure

Gazing up into the hard moonless night

The wind pulls my soul from my lips.

To what do I fathom in the ink-velvet sky?

No hope do I see from the dawning day.

My warrior hath gone to war, and lo…

My heart hath followed him dear.

Many eons have passed ere I saw my true love

All dressed in his maille and his leathers.

And many eons will pass ere he sees me again

For now do Charon’s boat surround him.

Shall I pay for the crossing, myself to see him?

Shall I cross the dark river, and fail?

No, I shall stay, and live, and remember his love

I shall remain his memory for the years.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
