I was no sooner asleep, via another plain I'd arrived It was not of this world, was my journey contrived For I awoke in a place that I had never ever seen Trying to understand where I am, what does it all mean The surroundings that are before me are of a palatial theme Furnishings so grand that would be fit for any Queen Stonework like the Norman's, from many centuries ago But finished to an out of this world modern, throws me so An attraction allures my eyes, through long draped curtains What will my eyes view to confirm my distant certain The skies are not like ours, they are a cobalt crimson red Planets dot their ceiling in their silent overhead I turn as I hear footsteps, like a marching from Earths past Double doors in gentle open, leaves this Semaj aghast Before me stands a beauty, with porcelain skin so fair Whilst a lavender ivy graces, her flowing jet black hair She leans her head as if pondering, touching lips so pink Hazel eyes now pierce me, I'm wondering what she thinks She starts to speak a language that's very new to me Suddenly it's broken English, what do I hear I see I am Princess Lorena, and you were always in our dreams It was just a matter of time when you rode our celestial stream We know of your Scottish courage, your clannish inner self And how you saved the Earth, from the Butterfly Winged Elves You and your droid Etto, whom we've allured to help our cause On our planet you now stand, like your Earth, has many flaws We plead you to lead our army, for we believe you to be true For in this I shall repay, I'll bequeath myself to you This poem, written by me, James Fraser's is my entry into Constance's contest, "Tell Her Story"

Hmmm, all you gotta do is lead her army and she is YOURS. That sounds like a Sottish man's fantasy come true. Way to take the image of that picture to your fantasy zone, James. NICELY done and congrats! (you are scottish, right?)

A very original take on the photo, James. I can see this girl as other-worldly as well. Quite a fascinating story of the girl and her mission to help Earthlings. Bravo! Wishing you success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
