Literature
Life is Art
The dance between Order and Chaos
In which all of us move
Is also the cascade of colors
That meet the eye
That fulfill the mind
That make the heart leap
When your gaze draws in
The shape of a sunset
And nourishes your spirit
With an outburst of love
This kaleidoscopic panoply of experience
Is reflected sharply in daily life
And its challenges, nay, its pain
When Order twists and becomes too strong
Then the colors run
And the cry of the gull above
Is the song of an angel
Or a siren, both lure and adoration
Driving you to hurl yourself into the fire
Hope is the balm that soothes the burn
When ancient spirits, bristling with malice
Attempt to suborn your dedication to
Life
Learning
Love
But nothing can stop you
The dance will continue
Remember your strength
And know always that you are loved.

Literature
A Star in Darkest Night
Lost, I was
Within a shadow
Of my own creation
What we built
Between us ripe for
Pain and desecration
Was it me
In truth, or was it
Something else that bade me
Cast away
The love I’d known
Believing you’d betrayed me
Does it even
Matter now the how
And why of falling
Do you know
That every night I
Heard your heart-song calling...
Now I lay
In helpless sorrow
Fear and tears upon my face
As you smile
In sweet compassion
Offering a touch of grace
Rising up
I see the one you
Taught in hopes I could be saved
See her smile
In simple warmth despite
The challenges she braved
What is this?
My heartbeat flutters
All my sadness falls away
Hope is blooming
That she'll find me
Worthy of that smile one day

Literature
A Price of Immortality
In shadowed sleep and half remembered dreams
I wander, wondering at what is real
For nothing is quite ever what it seems
And I'm no longer certain what I feel
Is based on truth, or some forgotten tale
I've seen upon an ancient, burnt-out stage
Or even just a broken, dusty trail
Through shattered thoughts of love, and grief, and rage
After so long the images are blurred
My mind, my vision, and my memory
Call out, but all too often are unheard
And worse, at times they simply disagree
And yet I find some peace from history's sting
Whene'er I rest beneath my sister's wing

Literature
Songs for Souls
The light of the music springs forth from the page
And makes shadows of she who is called to the stage
Dwarfed by her instrument, trapped in its cage
The span of its influence is tricky to gauge
Eyes looking nowhere but the dark, dancing motes
The secrets of silence between graceful notes
Each movement controlled as the music takes flight
She brings it forth, trembling, into the moon’s light
     Dwarfed by her instrument, trapped in its cage
     The span of its influence is tricky to gauge
     The light of the music springs forth from the page
     And makes shadows of she who is called to the stage
The praise comes so easy, they call her perfection
They stand and applaud in a loud genuflection
They beg her for more, though they don’t realize
That each song pulls a star from the depths of her eyes
     The span of its influence is tricky to gauge
     The light of the music springs

Literature
Hooves in the Deep
Beloved stallion, hear my call and come to me
I will be your friend, your love, your fantasy
I've longed to feel you near, and help your heart be free
Here within the rolling waves beneath the sea
Swim deep below the surface, love, and dance with me
In the currents flowing through the deepest sea
Beloved stallion, you will never need to fear
Nor suffer cold or want so long as I am near
Adoring eyes look into yours and shed no tear
Come closer, love, and let me keep you safely here
Swim deep below the surface, love, and dance with me
In the currents flowing through the deepest sea
Beloved stallion, how I hope you realize
The passion that I hold for you, I can't disguise
My need to feel your touch, so come and claim your prize
And gift me with the final spark within your eyes
Swim deep below the surface, love, and dance with me
In the currents flowing through the deepest sea

Fanciful Dreams by Ruaniamh by SongCoyote Fanciful Dreams by Ruaniamh :iconsongcoyote:SongCoyote 66 39
Literature
Forgiveness
Many seem to wish to know
The secrets hiding in Moon's glow
As if I knew for sure
Just how the drifts of dust might blow
With Equestria so far below
A bright and poignant lure
Its verdant Spring and Winter snow
Pass by so quickly, even though
My jail was not de jure
Oh, let me not become a boor
With accusations immature
Against the rising Sun
I still continue to endure
And some still think me quite impure
For letting Nightmare run
Would they, cast off from family's moor
Resist the siren's sweet allure
And still sweet vengeance shun?
I wonder if they thought it fun
To see my sister's heart undone
When she finally cast the spell
Though Nightmare I could not outrun
Perhaps her pain was the stronger one
When she forced my farewell
What solace found we then? Aye, none:
When the heat of battle was finally done
We were each alone in Hell

Literature
Moon Garden
I sought you out in dreams and in the air
From spreading dusk to deepest velvet night
Beseeching fortune's gift beyond compare
The stars within your mane my guiding light
The songs that swelled within my aching breast
Brought fire and hope to every night I flew
Each note, each verse a truth! I soon confessed
Before your eyes, that what I sought was you
The pain that crossed your brow was sharp and bright
How had I failed? What secret had I missed?
And then I knew: you feared to see the night
When I, poor mortal mare, felt Death's sweet kiss
Oh! Hold me still, e'en knowing we must part
Within that hidden garden of your heart
:iconSongCoyote:SongCoyote
:iconsongcoyote:SongCoyote 6 5
Literature
An Earth Pony's Laughter
A fluffy mane, a smiling face, blue eyes that make my heartbeat race
A loving heart that let me in to languish in her sweet embrace
It started with - to no surprise! - a laugh that I could not disguise
But as I got beyond the mask I soon began to realize
           The Element of Laughter is a sweet earth pony, too
           Though she lives to bring out happiness and make your smile break through
           Like anypony she needs comfort, rest, and time to heal
           All this and more I offer her, a gift of how I feel
When Nightmare Moon rose up in fright to threaten with eternal night
And Discord sowed his chaos, and when Chrysalis stole love outright
She stood beside her friends and made their hearts feel strong and unafraid
With laughter, cheer, and optimistic songs that helped them make things right
           But still, you mu

Literature
Sonnet for the Keeper of Secrets
Oh sunrise of my heart, I know not when
My love for you did start, nor even how
My longing grew to feel your silken skin
And every other lover disavow
Your touch enflames me past mortal desire
We shape each other to unfettered whim
Exploring sensual play, consumed by fire
That burns us not, but fills us to the brim
Each time we touch I find myself anew
The Truth within your eyes I can’t refuse
So take this truth; I offer it to you:
Oh Secret-Keeper, you inspire the Muse
I revel in my immortality
Because of you, and all your love for me

Hello hello, and welcome to my little corner of DeviantArt!

Just to start off: I deeply appreciate the Llamas that I receive and love giving them out, but I have given out thousands and cannot respond any more to the thanks I get for them. If you still want to thank me: you are very welcome! <3

While I consider myself a Bard and poet / songwriter, I am mainly here on DA as a consumer of the art of others. At the time of writing, every piece of visual art in my profile (except my photo "Wash") was created by someone else. Any poetry or other writing was created by me unless otherwise specified.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day and then some!

Light and laughter,
SongCoyote

The dance between Order and Chaos

And the cry of the gull above

Or a siren, both lure and adoration

Hope is the balm that soothes the burn
When ancient spirits, bristling with malice

But nothing can stop you
The dance will continue
Remember your strength
And know always that you are loved.
Life is Art
I do not often write free verse. I am too enamored of rhyme and structure.

Sometimes, though, inspiration strikes, and words spill from me in strange new ways.

My beloved inspires me often, and I am more than pleased to make art for them while basking in - and fostering - their smile. <3

Teranen does some really cute pony and other furry art, and they are raffling off a custom piece!

Go have a look and, if you like their stuff, Watch them and post a journal entry like this one.

<da:thumb id="730572262"/>

Good luck - but not too much good luck; I'd love a piece by them!

Light and laughter,
SongCoyote
