They wait. Between the worlds, in the space of silently slithering thoughts and ancient memories they bide their time. Their time never runs out, nor their patience.
The realms shift, aeons pass, shadows slide in like the tide. They embrace the oldest of mysteries, the best-kept secrets: embrace and absorb before they retreat.
The shadows breathe the secrets into the night air, into flickers at the corner of your eye, into the certainty of someone watching. They dance with every dark story you’ve ever heard, whisper so low that your ears cannot hear, so low that you feel it at the base of your spine: it is all true.
They wait. The worlds turn, years vanish like blinks of an ancient eye. Enticed imaginations reach for them, feel them, fear them: feed them.
Every primal fear of the dark, every gasp of a frozen prey, every moment of fierce denial of the truth we feel curling around our throats like the slow dance of the python, every held breath of the child within hiding in a corner knows the truth older than our small world: it is true.
They are true. They exist. They wait. There are moments within the world-turns when the doors open, the barriers vanish, the realms merge. Moments that arrive exactly when we wait for them the most.

Your work is outstanding. IT touches a nerve on many levels. I see this sacred image of the divine feminine as a cross between my Maharani (Boss) Sandra Annette Bullock and Janet Jackson. Furthermore your Marmurek namesake brings into the light the Maharajah syncretism of Sandra and I as 1964 dragons, Me R.A.K. a tau bull and her a Leo. The ard of the line is upon the ridge rich in soul.
