Poem: Bockman
Deep in the wood he dwells
The Bockman prances and plays
Waiting to lure you away
Hairy legged goat man, he
Venture not far off the path
My dear, he waits for you there
Not just the wolf long of tooth
So many woodland dangers, be
He is not the top of them all
Nay, nor down at the bottom
Somewhere between lurks he
I pray he’ll not be seen
Stay here with me instead
Tend the garden within the fence
Father will go to town instead
And we will stay here, safely

Flash Fiction: Sample
They shine in the darkness, twinkling eyes down at those trapped below. To them our world looks so peaceful. They don’t hear our cries rising to gazing skies. They only know the quiet of deep space. We spin and whirl in orbit, dancing around the gaseous core of our system. Unknown to us we are but atoms, bound in a molecule, part of a cell. This cell? Are we part of a heart, an eye, a leaf, a bacteria, a virus? What are they, watching us? Do they gaze through a microscope and we, but a culture on a slab?

Flash Fiction: Death of Pride
She stared at the lump of steel, plastic, rubber, leather, glass, and wire. It continued staring ahead with its glassy eyes unmoved by her tears and cries. Her toe found the rubber with speed even though both she and the lump knew that would do nothing to fix the problem. It would do her no good to open the hood, her fluids and oil were topped off by her dad before she left home. There wasn't anything under there in this situation that she knew how to do. All she wanted was to get to her new home, start her life and make her family proud. This lump had other plans it seemed, and they involved a long walk to the nearest payphone.

I write under Teresa Garcia and sometimes Amethyst Stormrider. I illustrate under Teresa Amehana Garcia. I am also known as Amehana Arashi and Amehana Ishtari.

I'm currently busy with writing, art, and apparently the taxi service for my teenagers. I hope to be an online professor teaching Asian Studies, Asian Religion, Asian Mythology, or Asian History. My major is International Relations with an Asian concentration, and my specific areas of the most interest are Japan and the Ryukyu Islands.

I am a priestess, coffee lover, author, poet, illustrator, publisher, sim administrator, and game administrator, but most of all a mother. I do not have the time for social time I once did. I live in the mountains of Northern California.

I paint, I write, I love tai chi, I love to fan dance before the central kamidana of my home when I am well enough. Not a lot to know really, but more to find out than most people ever do.

My gallery includes some pieces from as far back as my Junior High Years (not all of them) all the way through current. I retain the older work as a reminder for myself of what my level once was, to compare how far I have come, and as a way to hopefully remind new artists that they too will grow in their art.

Fish Army: Art AND Flash Fiction
This one was inspired by an off the wall short discussion in the Catfort/ASA Discord server.

Fish Army

Bubbles rose from his mask where he floated below the kelp. The shape he followed wove in and out of view ahead. Cautiously he increased his speed, trying to draw closer. The warty grey fish was something he had never seen before in all his dives and he needed pictures. The fish moved faster as if it sensed his intentions. It slipped away through the green and brown curtain.

He looked cautiously through the thicker entanglement. What swarmed there filled him with a sense of dread.

Fish of all kinds schooled and circled together. In the center of the clearing beyond the curtain a squat dark carving loomed. About the base various offerings lay, some mere trash, and others worth much more. Eyes glinted and bored with an infernal light right at him.

The fish turned as one and charged.

Commission: Wanda Wolf
This is the latest in both my Okami style inspired mini arts and commissions from John Krauss of the characters in his furry fiction world. Wanda wolf appears in his story where Glenda Griffin goes to college. She is an avid gamer and so a bit of cosplay seemed suiting.

Materials
2.5 by 2.5 inch bristol board stock, .5mm mechanical pencil, eraser, Pentel black brushpen, watercolor pencils, water brush.

Deep in the wood he dwells

The Bockman prances and plays

Waiting to lure you away

Hairy legged goat man, he



Venture not far off the path

My dear, he waits for you there

Not just the wolf long of tooth

So many woodland dangers, be



He is not the top of them all

Nay, nor down at the bottom

Somewhere between lurks he

I pray he’ll not be seen



Stay here with me instead

Tend the garden within the fence

Father will go to town instead

And we will stay here, safely
Poem: Bockman
The Bockman is a satyr-like being from Germany.

Very Brief Japanese Mythology Trip

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 12, 2019, 6:30 PM
One of the prompts for this year's Valentine-ish challenge #showyourheart asks us to make a journal with five deviations about a topic we (I) love. My theme for this journal will be mythology. This will be very brief due to a cat insisting on my attention. There will be a mix of some works of my own and some works of others.

10-Flowing by AmehanaRainStarDrago
The story of the Star Goddess and the Cow Herder, the origin of the Tanabata festival is one of my favorites. But perhaps you didn't know that if you are a newer watcher or have just stumbled on me. The lovers spent so much time with each other instead of doing their jobs that the father of this young star goddess, who had the duty of weaving for the yearly clothing of the others, put them on opposite sides of the River of Heaven. They can only see each other one day a year and only if conditions are right. In some versions of the tale it was the mother, who was angered that the goddess had married without her knowledge or consent... and to a human peasant at that!

MERMAY 2018 - Day 12 by AlexaFV
Still in Asia, mermaid also inhabit the waters. In Japan they are called Ningyo if I remember correctly. I did not create this image, but I do love it.

Inari, Goddes of Prosperity by ArdiRa 
This is another image that I did not create. However it has hung in my mind for years. Inari and Kitsune always go together. Some say he/she (there are conflicting opinions of Inari's gender) takes the form of a kitsune. Kitsune themselves are another subject but they are so entwined with lore about the kami that depending on what type of kitsune being studied it is hard to pick things apart.

Amaterasu and Tsukiyomi by AmehanaRainStarDrago  Susanoo by AmehanaRainStarDrago
These two images I did create. Other interesting kami are the triplets born after the divorce of Izanami and Izanagi. Izanami died giving birth to the deity of fire and descended to the underworld. Izanagi followed and tried to get her back. He looked into her abode there after he had been told not to, and in his horror she discovered this. The kami of the underworld had been busy doing their task. In her anger she and these kami chased him back to the world of the living. At the border they divorced. My thought is that this is why we cannot bring our bodies back to the world of the living after our death, only our spirits. If he'd let them do their job and let her come out when she was ready then perhaps things would be different today. The following image of the progenital pair I did not create. Here they create the islands of Japan (later interpreted as all the islands and continents of Earth).
