Moonaite Wazzara's whole concept really resonates to me for 3 top reasons. First of all, it combines things I love beyond words (like the Moon, the mystery and the magic) and also things that terrify me (the sea or the depths of the ocean). Second, it takes me back to the short story/fairytale of "Hansa, the traveler", which is just so dear to me. Third, it makes my imagination run wild.

Best whishes to Wazzara!

As the Stars 09:25
As the stars Queenly stars hear my howling yearn to unfold If only your shine as on your ceiling entered the veil I hold Tidelessly I do wander through the wold What could I be if I immersed in? Would I move on amongst the cold? The noble stars solemnly enlighten long devoured sounds While desiring hands struggle to tighten water to a mound With their eyes so green they twisted mine Until the tide will collide with me and I’ll move on amongst the cold I know my name. I know my way.
The Ferryman 04:59
The Ferryman Tell me, oh Ferryman where do you lead me? Tell me, tempting Ferryman where do you lead me? Standing there in front of me your hands firmly leading me and I can’t resist to be hauled down to your boat Boldest of the righteous ones where do you lead me? Boldest of the gentlest ones where do you lead me? The banks passed from our sight boundless, I pine for your sweet caress I can’t resist to be hauled down to you Tell me what’s your spell up to? Seven secret signs Tell me what’s your spell up to? Cling to distant lights Now that we dance upon the waves beneath the stars I face myself in you as I drown in you.
Out of the swamp (I’ll rise) Calmly I await this ending while dying seasons seam my feet wounded at the end of a long journey through wistful oceans seventeen miles deep My limbs are aching from clinging on both that was long dead and tried to breathe My mouth dumb from devouring rotten apples beside seventeen corpses I found sleep Within this blackness I see While suffocation I breathe Towards the light I fall and endless beauty I see. All my clothes are shredded by the storm And all my books are mangled by the wind My feet are buried firmly under the linden tree And nothing but the trunk I see
zessa 08:02
zessa Fading lights did show your wounded hands sewing with golden leafs this old gown you’ve gathered along the way circled your unseen crown None can do you harm From the shore can’t fire their arms Enfold that sound that mocks from the abyss your guise so full of weals. Woven in. Now it’s time to set it all apart leave this odd ground behind You’ll need some space to root your wounds deep in to reach down the waterside
