barddas, I'm interested in seeing the movie "Roan Inish". Do you know if it is available for rental? Where did you buy yours and how old is the movie? Was it made in Ireland? I'm just asking all these questions to help me find the DVD.

Any help you could give would be appreciated!

The actual title to the film is- The secret of Roan Inish
I believe I got mine at Best Buy.... It is normally in the drama section.
It was filmed in Ireland....
You can check Amamzon too...might find it cheaper there.....

this is sort of another song I have flowing in my mind right now...enjoy

Mists and the willow's bark
Shadows of night
Wandering o'er in the dale
Hyacinth covering
The graves of my kin
Hallowed and sleepless they stand

The stars that are painted
In the cold, winter's sky
Pale with the beauty
Of life flowing by
On the river of green and the grey on the wind
Such beautiful music I hear from my kin
And a memory lasting within

The song is in Poems by Mwah.. in Celtic Hearts forum

here is a link
http://www.celticradio.net/php/forums/inde...opic=1865&st=10

thank you for the link, barrdas! I loved it, loved, it, loved it! No lie! It is so beautiful!

so you OWN the movie then? I have seen it a couple of times. It is such an enchanting movie.

Hey! I just found out today that there is another movie about the same theme called "The Seventh Stream." It is set in Ireland and is about seals that turn into women, but need to return to their seal skins. Have you heard of this movie too? dribble.gif

All,
Haven't posted on here a while, the writing's been kinda sparse lately=(
Thought I'd share a piece from one of my journals, enjoy.
p.s.:untitled, too



Cold and dark as night's release
I return to the fold where the autumn sleeps
They turn and fall under open streams
Living in blood on the winter's dream

Waiting for the stones to fall
I stand against the warrior's wall
Where many legends slow at ease
Break through the heavens and the summer breeze

Shadows fade as the sun sets high
In the open arms of a shallow sky
Time is near as the sands run out
Leaves falling on the hands of doubt

To fear the night as it falls on the hills
Waking to the morn while the sparrow sings
Storms we weather from the windowsill
Fade to broken rain on the eagle's wings

Haldur........WOW! Both of your poems are incredible.

Almost afraid to post my wee poem that I wrote last night.....lol....but it was written at a moment of loneliness and sadness.



To know Love...
Is to dance in the moonlight.
To know Freedom...
Is to follow the stars.
To know Thyself...
Is to face all your fears

All the stars in the universe,
Mean nothing if you are afraid of the moonlight.


--------------------
The lianhan shee is a fairy mistress of dreadful power, for she seeks the love and dominion of mortal men. Most men find that they cannot refuse her.

No one has ever described the Lianhan shee. But more likely no mortal can describe her; for she is desire itself.

That was really good Barddas! Do you write a lot of music?

Simple, and right to the point. Nice flow too.

Sorry for taking so long to respond....

Thank you for your kind words!
I try and write one good piece a month. But there are always bits and pieces in between as well... It really depends on how much time I have to sit and do it.. But I am always thinking and jotting down new melodies......

Barddas....I completely understand. I have been piece mealing the selkies poem in my head but haven't had a chance to put it to ink and paper. And in the mean time......sadly....I had my heart broken and this is my latest short one.


You begged me not to go
Promised to wait, you told me so
Pretty words have come and gone
But you have left in my heart a hole

My mind is numb, chest aches to breath
Loved you once, guess I always will
Free me from this pain cries my soul
And now my tears slowly spill

Honeydew Dreams

Where has true love gone?
I have felt its warm embrace and heard its beating heart.
Its rapturous melody ensnared my soul, and left me wanting:

Sweet dreams of morning mist and honeydew kisses
Moonlit gardens of forbidden delights till dawn?s first break

Spring?s first showers invigorated us and summer?s sun sprinkled our faces
Autumn?s breeze nestled us in her leaves of many colors,
While winter blew her flurry and engulfed us in white glory

We reveled in our strength and believed in the promise of forever
I in you and you in me

Something broke and twisted
We lost our way
We cannot find the path back to the place where fairies and wee-folk dwell

I long to go back---to live and dream again
But alas, forever really does have an end

By Roisin GilMartin 2004


This is for you Chele. I hope it helps your broken heart.

Best regards,
Roisin angel_not.gif

Forgive me for not knowing barrdas, but are your writing the lyrics to these songs somewhere? You know I have YET to hear your music. I am ashamed to admit this but I just haven't heard your music at all. What is the best way to go about it?
