ACARA DAY SPECIAL
Water Dance of the Acara
Lightly across its surface,
Diving to its depths,
Surging up to leap above,
Watch the Acara Dance.
Gracefully without a splash,
Watching as a smile flash,
Then below the Acara slips,
As onlookers crowd and cheer.
The mists glisten softly,
The intricate steps so smooth,
Don't blink now or you'll miss,
As she performs the grand finale,
Running, twirling effortless,
Across waters shimmering surface.
Watch now this Acara Dance,
A spectacle most will never see,
And though it's very beautiful,
Seldom do the Acara's dance for show.
And so their best kept secret is
A dance on water -- and below,
A tradition of Acara Day,
A spinning dance 'cross waters spray.
The Myth of Mipsy's Magic
A world in peril cries for help,
A realm in trouble pleads.
The call doth echo through the land,
They seek heroic deeds.
In ancient lands we find the one,
Acara, wise and swift.
Mipsy's journey has begun,
With magic as her gift.
At the side of Rohane, brave,
She'll battle foes they meet.
Hoping that her vibrant wand
Shall conquer, then defeat.
Magician hat may be askew,
Her robes, a bit too long!
But in this band of heroes here,
She's found she does belong.
A massive Mynci, toned in ice,
Does block our Hero's way.
A simple wave of Mipsy's wand,
Shall always save the day.
Lifting paw and crying out,
She clutches wand so tight.
Enemies are cast away,
Within such mystic light.
From low apprentice does she rise,
To conjurer, so strong.
A magical Acara mage,
Who'll battle all that's wrong!
Our Heroes face a daunting task,
They'll journey on, beyond.
A small Acara in their midst,
Who'll clutch a magic wand.
A Point of View
Her eyes glowed green in their red rim,
Her fur a mouse-brown with black-and-red trim,
Her black dress and boots a sight to behold,
Complimenting her horns, crooked and cold.
Once she was pretty, once she was tame,
Her hair a beauty, her face of fame,
But now she's a horrible sight to the eyes,
Scourge of all, she cried and cried.
Wishing to be beautiful, she threw it away,
The wrong ears being what heard her that day,
Now she was alone, wanting it back,
Regretting the day that modesty lacked.
She looked into the depths of her magical mirror
And the reality shown became slightly queer,
From the center of darkness
Came a whisper cracked
"There's only one way to get your beauty back..."
"But HOW?" she screamed, her eyes of tears
And a small Cybunny perked up her ears.
The child came down, her mind full of wonder
Of what could have possibly
Caused such a thunder
The Acara looked up, sniffing but steady
As the Cybunny mutely handed her a teddy.
"What's this for?" elder questioned child.
"My horns are ugly, my wings are wild!"
Said the Cybunny, "Because you are sad.
And since when is beauty
The only thing to be had?"
"You don't need to be pretty;
You just have to be nice,
If all thought is on looks, you pay the price
Outward charm doesn't mean an ounce
In truth, it's what's on the inside that counts!"
Then to the Acara, a revelation came
Maybe there was more than beauty to name
Perhaps she didn't need fancy makeup or clothes!
Perhaps for nothing were her woes!
And as she sat there, thinking that thought,
A magical happening occurred in her spot,
Her eyes then softened, her hair gained its sheen,
Her fur became silky, her clothes became clean.
Her mirror forgotten, she jumped up and down,
She hugged the Cybunny, she skipped around,
"What's your name?" the Cybunny asked sweet
"Vira!" she exclaimed,
And skipped down the street.
Before the sun was risen,
Before the moon would shine,
Before the skies where pearly blue,
The sea was blue and fine.
Maraqua lay beneath the sea,
Submerged by smoke and dust,
A tattered place could not be
Described as great robust.
The creatures hid and shivered,
They wished the cold away,
But then, the sunlight flooded in,
The waves began to play -
A happy tune of granted dreams,
Amongst a flash of light,
Something dived and flew across
The dark and ghastly night.
Neither small or even large,
Nobody could be sure,
This creature; strange could offer them
So many, much and more.
An Acara from the ocean,
Had come to speak this phrase;
"From this day on you shall be known
Of great and many praise!"
"Do not be shy, my friends,
I'm from a place like yours,
I am a normal Acara
Without the fur and paws!"
With that she laughed aloud,
A laugh that could not fray,
Her tentacles; they danced about -
And disappeared away.
Once I Met an Acara!
Oh, once I saw a strange thing
Afloat upon the sea,
Off the shore by a yard and three score,
The height of a Uni's knee.
"'Tis an Acara!" One fellow said,
With quite apparent zeal,
"On land they roam but feel at home
In the water too, like seal."
Oh, on a wooden raft I set sail,
Into waters jade green,
To the beast adorned with vastly large horns,
I had so fleetingly seen.
"I come in peace!" I did exclaim,
As the creature saw me come,
"With spiced apple pie, which you should try,"
And thus it joined me for some.
Oh, we swam the ocean's current,
On that fine sunny day,
And in the end I made a great friend,
An Acara, from far, far away!
