-Cherry

I want to be as calm as the warm summer wind that blows across the dandelion fields at dusk. I want to be as gentle as the first morning light that touches the earth, and be as pure as the morning dew. I want my heart to be as great as the vastness of the sky, to obtain the beauty of all that is good and true. But above all, I want my love to reach for the moon and stars and be bright like the light of thousands suns.

The Happy Hungry Bunch Hug Headcanons

My take on how the characters would feel like when you decide to embrace them.

Inspired by itsomgitsgreenblogging‘s Akayona First Kiss Headcanons…and Yankee Candles.

Yona:  Yona would feel like a stalk of grass in a lawn—soft and delicate. Her silk-like clothes would meld against your body if she wrapped her arms around you and it would feel like you’re caressing a squishy memory foam pillow in the shape of a human figure. If you’re taller than her, her short locks will tickle your chin in a way that almost resembles the fluffy feathers of a parrot, but it’ll carry the scent of firewood and wild flowers growing by the roadsides.

Hak: Hak is a muscular man with a huge frame and dense bones. Thus, his arms would be a little heavy and a bit too tight around your form despite being as light as he could. He would feel like a suit of hard armor under leather—stale and tough. Fortunately, his hugs are not bone-crushing and his clothes provide just the right amount of insulation to make you feel his radiating warmth through the fabric. If hunched over, his frame would engulf you in a hot blanket of steel. His scent is both musky and sharp.

Yoon: Yoon has a more slender build and a more inviting frame. He may be stiff under your embrace but that doesn’t mask the invigorating warmth and sweet aroma of mountain herbs emanating from his clothes. He feels as if intertwining lily petals around your fingers without them breaking—firm yet yielding at the same time. His arms wrap deftly around your form in a way that’s reminiscent to a mother’s embrace.

Kija: Kija’s embraces are straight up contradictions due to his dragon hand—he is living embodiment of ice and fire. They resemble skimming the surface of water ever so slightly without causing any disturbance—barely touching and yet, still pulsing with warmth that emanates from pure beams of white light. His dragon hand, although larger in comparison to his human hand, is cool and smooth as marble.  When he melds against you, his white fringes brush against your forehead like freshly spun sugar candy.

Shin-Ah: Shin-Ah’s embraces resemble breathing in the cool nighttime air—there is an aura of mysteriousness enshrouding his figure like a coat that seems intimidating when it’s actually welcoming. His touches are brushes of wind carrying leaves across still ponds—scarce but secure. The fabrics of his clothes provide a carousel of textures ranging from hard jewels to soft wool of a sheep. His scent is crisp and syrupy.

Jae-Ha: Jae-Ha has a mixture of slender and muscular for his build. His embrace resembles a roaring sea and strong gusts of wind—wild yet controlling. His arms instantaneously wrap around your form in a satin ribbon as his tangy yet fragrant scent purges your senses the moment he presses against you. The velveteen fabrics of his oriental clothes add a spicy tango to the already seductive dance—it’s one that you’ll never want to let go of.

Zeno: Zeno’s embraces are earthy and incredibly rich. They resemble the long lost teddy bear rediscovered after years in an empty shoe box from the closet; the warm breeze of soft flowers and fresh green fields, and radiant sunshine all at once. His touches are extra firm and his embracing arms will give no space for you to break free—his warmth makes you feel like you’re already home. When his wild hair brushes against your face in his glee, you would be overcome with the urge to blow out dandelion seeds into the wind.

The Little Things in Life

Aries:Orange sunrises, warm rays of light, splashing water, looking for tadpoles in ponds, running and sprinting, bear hugs, high fives that sting, laughter that makes you sore, dancing and twirling in circles, the feel of the earth beneath your feet, sprinting until your legs wobble, late nights spent talking or laughing or simply listening to the sounds of the nighttime, flickering stars
Taurus: Hot chocolate on rainy days, the sound of rain hitting umbrellas, feeling sand between fingertips, watching the clouds move, walks in the forest, tousled hair, kissing in the rain, singing in the shower, cooking with someone, playful arguments, seeing the world begin a new day, the smell of coconut, the smell of everything; the perfume in her hair or his cologne
Gemini: Falling asleep to the sound of rain, biking in the city or through bumpy forest trails, sticking your feet in cold water, having water balloon fights, laughing so hard you can’t breathe, being so excited that your speech is incomprehensible, quick notes and quicker steps, the veins in the leaves that you love to crunch, blaring music, making people laugh, seeing her eyes sparkle, watching everyone in the world as individuals because you can
Cancer:Morning coffee, long walks, coming home to a warm house, sitting by a fire, watching TV while cuddling, goodbye and hello kisses, walks on the beach, road trips, sitting on the beach and listening to the ocean, reading late at night, manicures and pedicures, long hot showers, slow kisses, loud laughter, running fingers through silky hair
Leo: Cold, bright mornings, radiant sunshine, calloused hands, racing hearts, crystal clear streams, hot sand, running for no reason, late nights spent talking and laughing, excitement so tangible you can hardly sleep, watching the leaves change color each day in fall, running fingers through the mist in early morning, long trips to the beach, salt water drying on your lips
Virgo: Warm, glowing mornings, waking to birds chirping, orange-pink skies, harvest moons, vines entangling, planting flowers, humming absently, listening to the world spin around you, teaching and protecting, nights spent laughing and smiling, books filled with photographs, mornings with messy hair and tired eyes, whispered hellos, bare feet on grass
Libra: Puffy clouds, gentle breezes, floating leaves, power lines, pink skies, green tea, bare feet on cold mornings, watching flowers grow, deep conversations in the sunset, soft smiles, warm blankets, squeezed hands and shoulders, gentle eye contact, soft piano notes, quiet laughter, silent tears of joy
Scorpio:Lovesick poetry, quiet humming(even if it’s out of tune), random notes or drawings, letters that smell like perfume, rainy days, stargazing, deep conversations, aching chests, laying in the grass and staring up at the sky, coffee after a long day, gentle piano playing, soft kisses, animals curling up on your laps, hugs so long that time seems to stop
Sagittarius: Wispy clouds, summer wind, brightly colored flowers, dandelions blowing into streams, morning dew, streams of light through forest leaves, mulch beneath boots, wide smiles, unrestrained laughter, waking up to a new sight each day, whispering goodnight and good morning to the universe, dragonflies floating through the air, sticking your head out the car window, loud music
Capricorn:Mist tumbling from the sky, sleepy yawns in the morning, warm pajamas, hot tea, muttering about the heat and muttering about the cold, stopping to stare at the sky, hisses of “I can do that, watch me,” scraped knees from skateboards, freezing winter nights, daydreaming in Chemistry, shared grins, witty quips and giggles, watching the shadows and highlights on your skin, staring endlessly at intricate spiderwebs
Aquarius:Hidden alleyways, birds chirping, secret worlds between friends, vines twisting over fences, watching the sky at 1am, murmuring to the moon and stars, quick spring breezes, flashes of grins, sitting and watching the grass, closing your eyes and feeling the earth, saying hello to strangers, good morning and goodnight, cups of tea at obscenely early hours of the morning, quirky midnight conversations
Pisces: Spring skies, billowy clouds, dainty breezes, clear pools of water, splashing puddles in the middle of the street, sharing umbrellas, smelling flowers, lighting candles, peaceful walks at dusk, crickets chirping, wishing upon stars, daydreaming in moonlight, cold mornings with warm tea, soft laughter, losing yourself in music, running in high grass, laughing and singing freely, every moment of free bliss

The Green Witch’s Ally ~ A Magical Herb Series

Dandelion

Latin: Taraxacum officinale

Folk Names: Blowball, Cankerwort, Lion’s Tooth, Piss-a-bed, Priest’s Crown, Puffball, Swine Snout, White Endive, Wild Endive

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Jupiter

Element: Air

Powers: Divination, Wishes, Calling Spirits

Dandelion is said to be used to call upon air spirits. Blowing dandelion seeds into the wind is said to carry a message to a lover. The root is use for ritual involving Hecate. Gathering the yellow flowers of dandelion on St John’s Eve (June 23) was seen as a charm against hostile magic. It can also be used in spells for protection & vision work. Dandelion wine is a great additional to magical meals.

Ah. The humble little dandelion. Beloved by herbalists, hated by gardeners. Whatever your opinion is, everyone knows who dandelion is. The spirit of dandelion came to me, at the liminal hour of dawn (this is the time I often meet and commune with plant spirits), He appeared as a little lion, no biggest then a kitten. His body was made up of leaves and his face & mane the bright yellow flower, and he is that proudest little guy you ever did meet. Up front, feet apart, chest out and head high.He was very eager to share his lesson, if fact he kept me awake for hours, pestering me to go and write it! So Dante Leon (he proudly told me his name) I’m finally write this post in light of the events of today. The lesson of dandelion is. Be bold. Be proud. Be you. Dandelions say “Be who you are! Shine shine shine! That why you’re here. To be you!”. How you seen a dandelion, they grow and thrive where ever they pop up and they don’t give a shit what anyone else think about it! They open they’re little faces and say “Look at me! I am a little sun. See how I shine!” and dandelion encourages us to do they same.

“I don’t like how much it rains in spring. But the sunny days are awesome.”

Dandelion puffs were blowing through the air. There were pink petals on the ground. It was like something out of a movie. Spring could be a beautiful season, if you really looked at it. And if you got past the fact it rained almost every other day. At least for the day, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Just a beautiful shade of blue, all over.

He is, of course, holding hands with his boyfriend. He leans over for a kiss on the cheek. 

“So why did you bring me all the way out here?” He kneels down, and picks up a dandelion. He proceeds to gently blow on it, adding more to the display of dandelions blowing in the wind.

“It is gorgeous.”

Pokémon in our Biomes pt. 13: Prairies

“I’ve recently decided to make a series of posts with hypotheticalthinking and analyzing of what Pokémon species could potentially be found inthe world’s biomes. Not at all relative to the games, I will be focusing primarily of the elements, design, and relativity to real life flora and fauna of Pokémon to depict where different species would roam on our big blue marble.” 

Like I mentioned in the last post on beaches and coasts, a lot of major biomes have already been covered, so the rest may be pretty similar to each other and a lot more concentrated. For example, although deserts were already covered I may need to make further posts dividing them into semiarid and coastal deserts, as each are distinct biomes.

This post will focus on prairies. Prairies are actually considered to be part of the temperate grassland, savanna, and shrubland biomes based on their similarity in climates, and composition of grasses. This is where the Pokémon in our Biomes posts gets fuzzy, because all of the mentioned biomes are individual biomes, and because they are so similar it makes it a challenge to distinguish possible Pokémon between them. Prairies are however, a type of grassland, much like there are different types of deserts. Prairies are generally considered to be the huge rolling grasslands of the central United States and Canada, and in South America, Eurasia, and Africa they are all technically called different things but all more or less utilize the same characteristics.

Prairies have one feature I found quite interesting, is that unlike the Asian steppes, and South American pampas, prairies have considerably tall grasses, some areas having grasses as high as 9 feet. This feature is usually specified by the amount of rainfall. As you move away from the mountains near the west coast, the climate generally becomes drier as there isn’t a huge body of water to provide rainfall, and even when there is rainfall, there isn’t enough to support tree life, hence why the main type of plant species will be a grass or flower species. Due to this, the animals that live in the prairies have to either burrow to hide from predators, or herd together.

Let’s get started!

#64 Blowing in the Wind: The answers, my friends, are possibly blowing in the wind… Today my creativity was a bust and wasn’t found in the wind and rain outside today.  I started the poster this morning and struggled. Did a few things around the apartment, went to the ceramics studio, and came home to make a homemade chicken pot pie. Still, nothing inspired me. So, I needed to keep it simple and get back at it tomorrow.
