About


This project was made for a contest by Builder's Refuge, with the theme of 'Sanctuary'. Although I am not a big fan of contests typically, when the theme was first revealed, I decided it would be a great opportunity for me, to still be able to express myself well and not be constrained by a shallow theme. Very early on, before the contest started, I was set on what I would create for it, and excited to make something that would hold strong meaning to me, beyond the contest itself. I put a lot of thought into every piece of this project, with every aspect being symbolic and holding meaning. It was a joy to create, and I enjoyed being a part of the contest.

Poem


I am all of these things, in the wake of a storm I've breathed life into, a belonging to the crescent moon that reveals self-reflection, a shadowed mirror pulling the tides of my life in its lambency

With my waves that billow over evanescing memories, from the onset of emotional stimulus, I am my reactions to life, as are my lashing waves, as they rise and collapse, along with me

My brooding storm is one built by prolonged emotional debt, releasing impassioned bolts from the clouds of my turmoil, lighting the sky as it sets the pillars of my weakness ablaze

This act of self-immolation invites regrowth, as the sentinel of my being safeguards my outer core; I am the peacock that nurtures self-care, in defense from the cruel outskirts of my landscape

With my wings spread and feathers unfurled, my temperament becomes one of clarity in the stillness of night, where primordial essence becomes realized in the lunar gaze

Metamorphosis of my self-doubt permeates the tangible sky, in the afterglow of translucent butterflies fluttering free, fragmented ambitions are reborn without self-restraint

Enwrapped in tree branches of unified memories, laden with blooming flowers of ideas, my castle reaches the sky, but does not go beyond; it is grounded

I am the lotus flower born into chaos, from the struggles of my human nature, incubated in the heart of this sanctuary; I reside with inner wholeness, centered in this sanctum of self

More mature comment ensues;
The composition is great and I love the pallete and use of colour. The overall atmosphere? Bloody amazing. Am I inspired? Bloody yes.
