On The Wings Of Immortals -The Series

ABOUT THE SYLPH'S TALE AND ON WINGS OF IMMORTALS 

 

I wrote The Sylph's Tale (TST) in 2017 as a preamble to a screenplay, and even though only 17 pages, it got good reviews on Amazon, D2D, and writing groups. I wrote a screenplay adaptation, submitted it to an ISA contest, and won third place. 

 

Interest in TST and the screenplay got me to write VIRGINS, which I finished but not published is now book two of On Wings Of Immortals - a four-book series. 

 

Book one, Ayekah The Damned, is– at present over 80K words – a tale about creation, culture, love, religion, damnation, and salvation, based on ancient to modern history that includes beings without a soul and elemental spirits*.  Plan to self or, better yet, have a publisher. In the next few weeks, after a final round of reader edits. I will finish ROLO and Maculatum, each, at present, with about 60K and 40K words, in 2021. 

 

*Since ancient times, scientists, clergy, and the public have delved into the concepts of elemental spirits. In the "Paracelsian concept," there are four categories of elementals and supernatural beings or humanoids: gnomes, undines, sylphs, and salamanders. And four Empedoclean elements of antiquity: earth, water, air, and fire.

 

Some beliefs include that when a mortal has relations with an elemental, the human becomes immortal. In The Old Testament, Elementals, also known as Nephilim or "giants" or "the fallen ones" from the Hebrew word "naphal" or "to fall," are believed to have an eternal soul. 

 


HISTORICAL DATA ABOUT THE TWO MAIN CHARTERS: AYEKAH AND HAYA

 

Haya, the virgin, and Ayekah, the fallen archangel, started when the ancient Maya believed all on earth contained K'uh or sacred and divine life force. Their calendars predicted solar and lunar eclipses, cycles of the planet Venus, and movement of the constellations.

 

In Genesis 3:9. After Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, God asked Adam, "ayekah," meaning in Hebrew, "where are you?" The Torah refers to it as "watcher" and "holy one."  

 

In Maya mythology, Ayekah is akin to Itzamna, a god and creator thought to live in the sky and 

Haya in Hebrew, mythology means "life." In Genesis 3:9. Holy writs say angels "fell" after becoming "enamored" of human women. 

 

Haya is akin to Samael's counterpart, Lilith, who 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). As in Nashiym, the Lilim, who seduced the watchers.

 

In Maya mythology, Haya is akin to Ix Chel, the divine goddess that has helped create the world. Her powers include healing, intuitive knowledge, the ability to control earthly forces, and to choose the sex of a human fetus.

HOW THE SERIES CAME TO ME

 

Holiness Defiled @martacweeks2012

 

One night when alone, I was woken rosary in hand by the rustle of sheers that lapped as if tongues from a gaping mouth, colored red by the flashing beam from my bedside clock. 


Between them, a shadow lurked. Thinking it's a deceased beloved? I sat as my cat, who lay by my feet, hissed, leaping out of the room.

 

The handsome face was unfamiliar, its grin unfriendly. My heart pounded as I screamed, "Evil begone." 

 

Its voice, soft as the breeze, thundered into my mind: "I am not a vision, spirit, or magic. Fear me not. Let me confess how I came to be and what I do."

 

Every night I was alone, it came. I tried to be brave with no place else to go, so my only choice was to face it and listen or go insane.

 

It told me stories of a new world unfolding not from Sanctity but from the pews of religion and technology.

 

 "God, man, one of the same. Names and places change to protect innocents even though there are none for all humans, as carriages of flesh weave sins into blessings and ride people into destruction."

 

In my mind, I saw what its words portrayed all felt its breath upon my chest as it left bruises between my legs.

 

"Good intentions defile holiness. In time and blood, there are no mistakes. Daylight is one sphere and the night is another. I will guide you on this journey from alpha to omega."

 

I confessed to my priest, talked with a friend, went with my husband most nights; his work took him away. Thought I had gone insane. 

 

One night it said, "We are Eternals. As fog ends a sun-filled day to usher in the moonlight in a star-filled sky, we come to life until Eternity calls us to rise live again for in death nothing is lost."

 

It showed me multitudes, their faces grinning as they scared others or took them to someplace where I didn't want to go.

 

"So spread your wings, creatures of light, let the power and might of delicate beings raise your spirit to a light-filled sky to witness and claim an eternal place: Oh, flutter Divine."



A Mockingbird's Song

 

An angel falls, a woman dies

from her virginity, a new world unfolds.

 

Poetry was my first love 

now I fancy myself a writer

not just a lover of filling minds 

with words or dreams crunched into stories.

 

Recently, I watched green leaves 

turn into shades of reds and yellows.

In their adieu, they left branches naked.

 

Now, as I write, about him buds appear

and as I read out loud about a celestial 

who fell in love and after she died 

fell, even more,

 recreating her for generations 

until at last, from one, she will be born 

before the world ends.

 

Such as from lichens in the arms of a tree 

That will again crowd and touch

In greens, reds, and yellows 

as a Mockingbird taunts your mind

as it does mine and words leave me 

barren to flourish again.

In high school, Marta won awards for public speaking and, before marriage, was a dancer and fashion model.
