About ELEMENTALS 

There were thought to be elemental spirits from each element: mermaids from water, sylphs from air, gnomes from earth, salamanders from spirits. Now, scientists speak of humanity as having an elemental spirit called “natural tectonics” the forces cracking the planet's crust with earthquakes and volcanoes. However it is believed that all elemental spirits lack an immortal soul unless they marry a human, then the “elemental and its offspring could gain a soul.” In the “Paracelsian concept” elementals are supernatural “humanoid beings” and said to live longer than humans but are not immortals but by wedding a mortal “it becomes immortal.”

Note: Quoted text and additional information on elementals is found in mythology, ancient history, The Old Testament, and on Wikipedia or Google by searching for Elementals. 

POEM ON HOW THE SERIES STARTED  

On a night when alone I dozed rosary in hand

thought it a dream when roused by rustling sounds

of sheers lapping between folds of drapes

like tongues out of a dark gaping mouth.

 

The clock read midnight, its red light brighter

pulsated from a beam I traced from floor to wall

where he hid in shadows. I thought he was a beloved

but the face was unfamiliar the grin unfriendly

 

The cat now lazing by my feet screeched by the door

no one heard my scream or my heart pounding

into my head, “evil be gone” when his voice

soft as the breeze thundered into my mind.

 

“I am not a vision, spirit or magic fear me not.

Let me reveal how I came to be and do.

Night after night, when I was alone, he came.

My choice, to face him or go insane.

 

His is the story of a new world unfolding

Of sanctity at the pews of religion and technology

God, man one of the same. Names, and places changed

to protect innocents even though there are none.

 

In time and blood his carriages of flesh weave

sins into blessings as people ride on good intentions

and, holiness defiles. There are no mistakes.

Day is one sphere as night is another.






Book I
AYEKAH THE DAMNED

A passionate and mystical tale about the love between a virgin and an angel.

Fantasy/Mythology-approx. 50K

Ayekah The Damned, loosely based on Holy Writs is the story of when, why, and what happened after The Archangel of Light, highest of all angels, was dammed for eternity. The tale proceeds to describe the Virgin who seduced the Archangel, who she was, is, and will become.

Starts in prehistoric times, when the Archangel of Light, and multitudes of other angels are commanded to witness Earth’s evolution but never to interfere. Angels are neither male nor female but can take any form. However, the Archangel becomes enthralled with humanity, and to escape violating Holy Creeds, hides in a Blackhole for ages. It remains hidden until it hears what it now questions, whether it was The Almighty’s command that forces it to return to earth where it finds a primitive clan. 

After observing the clan’s people, the Archangel is ready to take flight but lured by a soaring eagle, by accident it comes upon a deserted almost inaccessible marsh near the clan. It calls this place “my earthly paradise” where it stays until a virgin runs to this marsh to escape a barbaric ritual. She seduces the angel and he is damned for eternity. 

His name becomes Ayekah; he names her Haya. He wants her to stay with him, but she goes back to her tribe. Ayekah flees, but in despair over the Almighty’s damnation and lost without Haya, he returns to find she has mysterious powers and a destiny that, without him, she cannot fulfill.

The story is told by Ayekah.

Mythology and History

About Ayekah: as in Genesis 3:9. After Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, God asked Adam, “where are you” which is “ayeka” in Hebrew. Also, as referred to in “watchers, holy ones,” and other writs about fallen angels, as they “fell” after they became “enamored” of human women.

About Haya: Haya the virgin is akin to Samael’s counterpart Lilith. She seduces angels and can mean; “to live” or “have life,” or “to give” or “restore life” (Genesis 25:6, Joshua 3:10) “lively” (2 Samuel 23:20), and “reviving” (Genesis 18:10, 2 Kings 4:16). Nashiym, the Lilim, seduced the watchers. Samael’s counterpart and a mother of demons is seen seducing the fallen angels as Naamah; after the fall, they had daughters: “Wholly new in the Kabbalistic concept of Lilith is her appearance as the permanent partner of Samael, queen of the realm of the forces of evil (the Sitra Ahra).”

Mesoamerican religion the Mayans believed that Star People or Watchers had elongated skulls, lived in sacred caves, and had rituals in bathing places, waterholes, shrines, and sinkholes (cenotes) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_religion; Also found in many other scripts such as Forgotten Origin http://forgottenorigin.com/the-mayan-ancestors-angels-star-people-and-oblong-skulls.

In Mayan mythology, Ayekah is akin to Itzamna, an upper god and creator deity thought to reside in the sky and who is represented by the aged god D who married Ix Chel. Mayans became known as the naked eye astronomers because of their ability to accurately chronicle, assimilate, and compute the calculations of eclipses, lunations, and rotation cycles.

Haya is akin to Ix Chel, the divine goddess believed to have helped in the creation of the world. When young, her symbol of the waxing moon, when old, of the waning moon. Her powers include healing, intuitive knowledge, and the ability to control earthly forces and the sex of a fetus. To this day on the island Cuzamil, known as Cozumel, there is a famous temple dedicated to Ix Chel. As well as on Isla Mujeres (island of women). She might even be known as Coatlicue “once magically impregnated by a ball of feathers.” And The Miracle Mother - La Divina Pastora, Siparee/Supari Mai, the Black Madonna

I CALL THIS: THE DUALITY OF LIFE

TAKEN FROM: THE FIRST TWENTY-THREE PAGES OF THE DRESDEN CODEX: THE DIVINATION PAGES BY EDWIN L. BARNHART

 

 THE MARDI’S SONG 

For We Are Eternal

The Mardi sings

as fog rises ending a sun-filled day

and the moon falls

from a star-filled night.

To life, we come in innocence

until death calls us,

we must live on earth.

Nothing is lost for we rise again.

So spread your wings

creatures of light,

stretch your spirit against blue skies. 

The power and might

of delicate beings

Oh, daughters return to us

in the wonderment

of all who wait, witness and claim.

You come from an eternal place

that humans cannot have

nor feel; Oh, flutter Divine.

The Sylph’s Tale
A short but provocative tale about an Archangel seduced by a mystical Virgin
Fantasy/Mythology
Available on Amazon and D2D

NOTE: The Sylph's Tale was published missing text and the largest chapters. Amazon and D2D state they will give, those who purchased it, a free electronic copy of the revised publication. That will be AYEKAH THE DAMNED, Book I in the upcoming ELEMENTALS - The Series.
I am grateful for those who liked it even though it's missing the largest chapters. 
COMMENTS: "This has imagination and touches on the mythic and spiritual in ways that are not typical."
"The Sylph's Tale made for a most unusual read. The choice to format the story more as a series of vignettes from a creation myth. Fallen angels appear in many stories, but it's far less common to see through the angels' own eyes."
"The love between a girl from prehistoric days and Ayekah was beautifully told. Although this book was too religious to my liking, I believe that the next books will probably be more paranormal than biblical."

The Sylph’s Tale screenplay adaptation won an ISA third-place award.
