Character Haiku ~ Ukemi Hyori aka Blaze #IAN1 #ASMSG #DragonQueen #UrbanFantasy

A couple years ago, I promised you guys I would post a character haiku at least every week. Well, my writing schedule got tight, and my blog suffered for it. Haikus are very few words, but they are not easy to create. At least not for me. 🙂 My goal was to embody the soul of a character through this beautiful poetry form and today I’m going to give it another go. Except, I’ll try to post one every month. I have a lot of characters to introduce so there will be many haikus coming your way.

Today’s Haiku is about Blaze. If you’ve read the Dragon Queen Series, then you’ve already met her. Blaze is an earthly bound battle angel, Andausian, and a member of special ops team in the military. Her real name is Ukemi Hyori. She was born in Korea and raised in Japan. Like many of the guardians ordained to protect the Dragon Queen, she had to suffer death and loss to come closer to her faith and her destiny.

Battle angels born in human form are gifted with a special ability, sometimes more than one. Blaze has the ability to manipulate and brandish fire as a weapon. And not just any fire. The Flames of Heaven. She’s a lovable sweetheart, but she’s deadly when crossed.

Her cousin, Tajaé, who happens to be a black panther shifter, was introduced in the Dragon Queen novelette, Shifting Darkness.

Hopefully, I’ll have a drawing of her to share with you soon. 😉 Now, onto the good stuff.

Haiku is a Japanese poetry form. A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. It’s like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself.

Traditionally, haiku is written in three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. Haikus are usually based on nature, or the scenery around you, but this Haiku is using a character as the focal point.

I posted this one some years back, and since it describes this character so well, I’d like to post it again.

A blaze awakens

Heat cascades through her body

Flames engulf the night

Put Your Mouth on Me #Poetry #Erotica #EroticRomance #Romance #IAN1 #ASMSG

MouthIt’s impossible to breathe until you put your mouth on me

I’m suffocating in sheer lust

Every inch of my body throbs…

Aching…

Needing…

An unbearable heat builds within my core

You rest those seductive dark eyes on me…

Looking oh-so-fine as your chocolate tone glistens under the artificial light…

Thick ribbons of ecstasy dance between us

I don’t need to say it, because you already know

You sense it…

Taste it…

The arousal soaking into my panties…

Sliding down between my thighs…

You lick your lips, giving me but a glimpse of your pink tongue…

I want it, exploring the most intimate regions of my body…

I want it, inside of me…

Save me from this torturous need

Baby, can’t you see…

I can’t breathe until you put your mouth on me

Transparent Soul ~ Rayne’s Song #Poetry #DarkRomance #ASMSG #IAN1 #Vampires #DragonQueen

Cheers of excitement followed Rayne backstage. She grabbed the towel offered to her and mopped up the sweat at the nape of her neck and shoulders.

This had to be the hardest performance of her career. This time it wasn’t the horrid visions that had her on the verge of a mental and physical breakdown. It wasn’t the voices of the murdered souls either. Blood. It was the scent of human blood all around her.

Somehow, she managed to deliver a show worthy of a roaring applause and a standing ovation. Little did they know, her fangs burned her gums, her body throbbed viciously and her head spun out of control. Even with all of that going on, she danced with extra passion, sung her heart out, and hopefully gave her fans a performance to remember.

Transparent. The words of the song still lingered on her mind.

The bass and electric guitar fell in tune with her piano solo, as did the rest of the band. The groove shook her to the core. The memory of the performance and the words she sung stirred her emotions. She wiped away tears. She’d delivered this song on the whim, without practice, without warning her band, or the show coordinator, something she’d never done at a live concert. Her band came through though.

As an encore, Transparent was her melodious message to her demon-vamp lover. Her heart, her soul, she poured everything into the concluding song. Even though her link with Demetri remained severed, she could only hope he heard every word.

Seduce Me (Part 1) #Poetry #ASMSG

SeduceMe

Seduce me

Hold me close

Whisper sweet nothings in my ear…

As I stir in my heated passion for you

Seduce me

Run your hands over my naked flesh…

Make me simmer, make me crave your lips on mine

As my body shudders against you

Seduce me

Make me forget where I am, make it not matter

Slide your fingers over the most sensitive parts of my body

As I desperately whisper your name

Seduce me…

Character Haiku ~ Blaze

Hey there people! I have another haiku for you. ^_^

Haiku is a Japanese poetry form. A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. It is like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself.

Traditionally, haiku is written in three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. Haikus are usually based on nature, or the scenery around you, but this Haiku is using a character as the focal point.

Blaze is an earthly bound battle angel, Andausian, and a member of special opts team in the military. She was born in Korea and raised in Japan. Like many of the guardians ordained to protect the half-breed Dragon Queen, she had to suffer death and loss to come closer to her faith and her destiny.

Battle angels born in human form are gifted with a special ability, sometimes more than one. Blaze has the ability to manipulate and brandish fire as a weapon.

Enjoy!

I’m not sure who the artist is, but this is the perfect image of Blaze. Many thanks to the artist for this stunning piece

Arrow Ablaze

“Do you see your target?”

Bird’s eye view on the demon, Blaze drew the bow string back. “Got him.”

The priest appeared at her side. He shuffled in place, wringing his hands together.

She dared to cast a glance at his way.

Nervousness screamed from his pale grey eyes. “Remember, Blaze. We’re not here to kill him. Only wound him.”

As a dark shadow, the demon crept through the forest, sniffing the air and scanning the area with a cautious eye.

“Not here to kill him?” A blue flame sparked to life at the end of the arrow then scattered down the length of it. “Perhaps you should’ve brought another Andausian out on this mission.”

She released the string, discharging the pointed missile. It bolted through the gathering of trees and found its target’s black heart. As blue flames engulfed the creature, a demonic shriek lit up the skies.

Blaze met the priest’s shocked stare. “Sorry, Father Wheeler. I don’t wound. I kill.”
