Shimmermist by Tammara Shimmermist by Tammara
:star:Details can be found here:[link]

Winter fairies bring beauty to the cold season. They make the snowflake patterns, ice cycles, and add twinkle to the frost in the moonlight. They have soft translucent skin with a slight touch of blue that sparkles when light hits it. Their eyes are icy blue with snowflake irises and their hair is frosty white. And their wings trail a soft dusting of snow as they quietly work to make cold beautiful. If a snowflake touches your skin it's a kiss from the winter fairies.

The crystal in her hand is one my daughter gave me that hangs in my window.

Happy Holiday's everyone!



Beautiful model used for reference is :iconflaviacabral::love:

Bokeh used for background texture is from sweet friend :iconevile33:

My Ophelia, my beautiful forest fairy!

When will I enjoy the taste of your lips? When will you fall in love with me!

How long will you keep me in this beautiful, yet evil prison?

When will you hurry to me and with great eagerness, hunger and passion, unlock this golden cage, take off the key from around your neck and throw open these doors which keep us apart?

Can you not see it? How we will spring into each others arms, melting into one!
How we will flow into each other, with warmth and joy, forgetting everything else, past, present or future!
But you are to me, as a teasing, seductive fairy. Holding me captive at your will.))
I know that you love me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So why leave me in this enchanted dream?
Where my darling, where are you hiding your fairy wings? )) I see them not, but this I know, this I perceive...........that each and every night, you secretly leave the fairy strongholds of the far north and fly with grace and speed, negotiating mountains and rivers, valley's and lakes, oceans and tempestuous sea's, and should your iridescent gossamer wings grow weary, you hitch a ride upon the Dolphins back.
They are your special friends because they know you can be trusted.
They laugh and chatter and sing in Dolphinese, the liquid language of the sea. They protect you from the sharks and tell you jokes about the Octopus, until you reach the white and noble cliffs of England.
This is the fair isle where your beloved resides.
You bid farewell to the Dolphins and fly once again, over crowded city and pretty, silent villages. Then, seeing the glow of light from his little cottage, you dive without fear, from the thunderclouds, riding upon the stormy skies, you silently land upon his roof top!
You wipe away the evening frost with your hand and peer into his bedroom. It is dark, but with the gentle moonlight and with your sparkling fairy eyes, you see very clearly the form of your beloved man.
With the graceful dexterity of a fairies hand, like a cat burglar, you slip the windows latch and you are inside!
He is deep under the bed clothes, snoring gently, but suddenly, from his sleeping lips you hear him call out your name, Oh darling, oh sweet Ophelia", as if already, he senses you in his dreams. Indeed, he opens wide his clear green eyes, but all this is but a dream to him! You gaze down at his romantic eyes and see his whole heart glowing for only you. He can hide nothing from you. He is yours completely. You know you may do anything you wish with him. But for the time being, because he knows nothing of your fairy identity, you will not make love to him while he is in this dream state! You know he is in love with you, but until now, you have only met in letters and dreams. You will not take him by enchantment, but only when he is awake.
It occurs to you, shall I awaken my dreaming Chyme? mmmmmmm, it is tempting, but how will you explain your presence in his house? How did you get in? Why are you wearing a transparent fairy cloth? Why are you luminescent and evanesce like star light? No..... must not awaken my beloved yet! Let him only imagine me in this dream. Let him hold me close and kiss. Allow him to touch and explore, but only as a dream.
Carefully, so as not to awaken him fully, you pull back the bed sheets and slide in beside him. How warm he is. How earthy he smells!
Never, have you felt so safe, so secure, so at home.
You breathe in his manly musky smell. How it excites you. Natures own aphrodisiac. Your heart beats faster with his and the room is aglow with your combined radiance. You tenderly kiss his neck, his arms, his shoulders, running your fingers through the curls of light brown hair on his heaving chest. He cant help himself but to respond and even this is a dream he is fully aroused and presses against you with eager anticipations!
You whisper into his ear, "Wait my love, be still", and he is suddenly calm and restful. This is all too much for you both. An unfulfilled dream for him, a frustrating reality for you. But you know of a surety, that the very moment you consumate your passions with a mere human, you cease to be of fairy-kind! Soon, this day will surely come, but at present, it is enough to be there with him. You lay in his tender embrace until the first rays of the dawn peer in, through the window. One more kiss and you are diving through the clouds on your return journey home..........already you are thinking of the coming night and your next adventure! It empowers you with strength and courage and desires which burn his memory, like fire in your soul.
Fare thee well my fairy princess, return soon to me, for I need your tender love!
your captive prince, Chyme
