The Legends are full of it.

Of Love,.. that is.

 

In some form.

 

From the earliest Times… we have put emotions into words.

Feelings and actions inspired by ideals… too.

We love to… love.

 

Reflected so well too… in the Tales we tell…

…and oft retell.

Of Dreams, Hopes and Tragedy therein.

Our World Legends.

 

Herein… also.

 

Like the burning blossom within Shakespeare’s fiery epic of;..

Romeo and Juliet.

Eternal Flame.

Relit…

… just before burning out it seems.?.

 

SHINOBI HEART… Our World Legends INDEED. gifcredit/thanks:gifco

Or not.?.

Perhaps… just smoldering…

…awaiting another History and Herstory.

Another retelling.

 

Enabling then,..

…this Eternal Flame… be relit.

 

So these Legends do seem to say.

 

Fire… Starters…

…to Light that Fire.

 

The Legends of the Ancient Gods are… eye-opening.

They act… all together… too Human.

 

Their Traits… are Ours.

Excepting the odd Miracle… they grow, learn and age.

With Family, Friends, Lovers and Enemies… too.

 

As… we All do.

 

Ancient and Olden Divine Being Depictions… of Goddesses and Gods. photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

 

Love in the Legends contains much drama.

Shakespearean and otherwise.

 

Sumerian… for example.

The Gods are rampant within their Writings.

Doing and achieving… great things it seems indeed,..

…in deed and in fact… too.

 

The Civilisation of Sumer is one of our eldest.

Whose records… we can still sorta read.

 

Lil Clay Brick Records btw.

As herein Slide-show… below.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

 

Love Letters… of Paper…

…and Clay… too.

 

(Music Link)

 

Inanna and Dumuzi of Sumer… had… it.

Love,.. Dreams, Happiness… and each other… also.

 

For a short time… anyways.

 

Dumuzi it seems at some point… had…

..had enough.

Of… something.

 

Journeyed away… to the… Dark side.

The UnderWorld… actually.

 

This… for some reason… irked Innanna…inanely indeed.

Intensely also.

 

Journeying… to Hell and back… literally.

The UnderWorld… anyways.

A Land to which Dumuzi had recently journeyed to…

…and… also;..

…Where… her Sister… lived.

 

Ereshkigal… her name.

 

Also known as ISHTAR/ASTARTE/APHRODITE/VENUS… and so on. Herein. Our World Legends. photocredit/thanks:connectionwls

 

Thus above sets the Scenes for one of the first Love Epics, Odes and Poems.

And so on, does… Love,.. tumble, fumble and fall;..

…through the Legends.

 

Via the Goddesses and Gods in the main.

 

Of many Cultures and Ways therein… too.

 

This indeed leads Love and it’s inherent forms to include such as the Noble Divinity aspect into it’s equation vis the Sacred Marriage Ceremonies and Rituals therein various Traditions.

Akin to the Nature Worshipping whereby both Sacrifice and Regeneration are Major Themes incorporated. To reflect their Understanding and Relation of the Way things are.

 

Over Herstory and History… in different times and places these Themes shift only in Local color per se.

Creation and Growth.

Dreams.

Hope and Tragedy.

 

Inviting or Forbidden.

Bawdy,.. even Lustful when needed…

 

…Tender as required… also.

 

Lending a Hand.?. How about some Legendary… Duct Tape.?. Herein. Origins,.. Intel… Pics and More.

 

Spending a Night…

…with a Knight.

 

Via such as the Olden Troubadours of Courtly and Knightly Love.

Where the concepts of Honor, Justice, Representation, Adoration…

…all combine.

 

The Damsel fair,.. troubled in some ways and means.

Men… just there to aid.

 

Love… from a distance.

A background detail to the Main Issue therein.

Somewhat distant and unnecessary.

 

Almost… aloof.

 

The Balcony… a pic. A Top set of Legendary Riffs… to set the scene… in some manner. Herein.

 

(…Aloof.?. Tis not surprising sayeth Shiro here… Let’s be… naked with the Truth here;..

…Aloof is Polite… Whilst maybe having Noble thoughts in Mind… These guys… didn’t wash much… even less than the Wild Cowboys of the West… if… at all… and…

sat on smelly Horses…

ALL day… night too… sometimes… slept.?. in dark danky Castles… got around in tin can steamy and clanky Armor Suits with Longjohns as company… look… ???… do not the Legends say:

…Sir Lancelot… who… used his Lance… a LOT… lived and camped most oft near rivers, bridges and on the shores of that Lady in the Lake… squeaky clean Lance methinks.!.

A Legendary Hint perhaps therein there… too.

For those with an interest: For long lasting Modern Male smelly goodness…try a few splashes of that other Hero…Aramis… of the Musketeers and Perfumed… Approach… 😉

 

Anyways…)

On with this show;…

The Housing of Juliet:..

…The Slide-show…

That is.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

William Shakespeare… in Statuary.

 

A Rose…

…by any Name… at all.

 

Shakespeare combined the Real of the situation with additional emotional content as context.

In Ways that resonated.

 

The Love he enwrapped in the Romeo and Juliet Tale… so familiar in some way…

…to many.

 

A form of Love… forbidden… by outside Forces…

while the Lovers beset and besot,..

…by their own Inner… ones… also.

Fire and Ice.

 

This Theme and Approach oft replayed, recycled, reloaded.

Romeo and Juliet just one approach.

 

The Lovers… barely afloat on a sea of emotions.

Waves of emotion.

Raw.

Where each action can trigger… an avalanche.

Or… tidal wave.

 

Fire AND Ice.

Eternal Flame. Relit.

This is evidenced by taking a particular view.

 

The House of Shakespeare;.. Stratford on Avon,.. Warwickshire, England.

 

This View…

…of the Lonely Hearts that is.

 

Of such as the Lives and Tales thereof of even recent generations.

 

Of events of 31st of August, 1997.

Or of the events of August 8th, 1977 perhaps… as well.

 

Of the humility, style and graces of such personages,..

…as Lady Diana Spencer or…

…Princess Misha’al bint Fahd al Saud.

 

Themes and actions that echo throughout Our Time.

Of misunderstanding and… misuse of Protective Power.

 

Of Care-takers… becoming Executioners.

 

Of Rituals that belong nowhere in Time… not Now.

Nor then.

Of a Love… that then… tore apart their World.

 

In the Modern… as well.

The recent Renaissance, Commoner, Princess or otherwise.

 

Relit.

Still burning.

 

(Music Link)

 

O… Wherefore… art Thou.?.

One hopes and wonders… too.

That… cool heads prevail and;..

 

…no such tragedy alights still or ensues from the current journey and recent seeming disappearance of Princess Sheikha Latifa in Dubai.

Not another variation of our eternal theme.?.

 

Relit.?.

A Legend in the making thereof.?.

More Hope… less Tragedy.

 

 

Enjoy, Take Care… and Love…

…Your very Own Journey.

 

In this World and the UnderWorld… also.

 

For… on and in Your Journey…

Love may alight and find You One,..

 

…therein… too.

 

Burning with raw emotion and power.

A… fire within.

Fired Up.

 

IN… Love.

Another Scene… as per the Article Feature Photo… vis the Sunset at Ballet Team’s Adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

 

In Tragedy, Hopes… and Dreams… as well.

 

Yours… Theirs.

So Our World Legends, say.

 

Eternal Flame.

I… Dream of Ninja.

Do You… Have a Dream.?.

 

 

Till next…
