    Default Tweleve T-shirt Hunt # Three Tweleve Questions

    QUESTION ONE
    _____________

    Go to
    www.enya.com and navigate to the "Watch Tower." View the music video "Amarantine."
    After watching this video, define "Amarantine". Define it in such a way that someone who hasn't seen it can understand what Enya conveyed, but from your point of view.

    Bonus points for an additional poetic piece about this video/track in the form of acrostic poetry.

    best of luck peeps!

    (the first question is submitted by a "guest" poster)
    * as was tradition in the previous two contests, winner with most points at close of contest will win his/her Tweleve t-shirt of choice. Bonus merchandise is frequently awarded for extra points. Good luck!

    *thanks to the 'guest' poster for this insightful query*

    Default Question 1 - Amarantine

    Way cool, Kat.  Thanks!

    Amarantine is a stirring concept that penetrates both sight and soul, an everlasting imaginary bloom of deep purple red.  The images in this video, the red silk, the jewel-toned flowers, and the disappearing light, sluice the impossible concept that emotions can be imaginary and real simultaneously.  Amarantine is the instantaneous beauty that washes throughout you when you know real love; it implies that you will be forever changed when you are touched by such light.  The juxtaposition of the steady, firm beat with the near fuzzy tone of the singer work to echo the subject matter.  

    Personally, I understand that love is dichotymous.  The very depth and breadth of the love I feel cannot be measured in any rational way, so it must by definition be imaginary.  Fuzzy.  Light.  The one 'silken' love in my life served as a baptism of sorts, washing away years of guilt and self doubts.  It is this ‘steady beat’ throughout my adult life that lets me absorb this beautiful music so wholly. Kat, that I could even feel this way at all leaves me dazzled.


    Life has lifted.
    Once a simple girl, I am now holding a
    Velvet bouquet of amarantine,
    Even braiding a crushed crown of
    Imaginary red and purple brocades.
    Senseless, really, when such texture is impossible.
    Light catches breaths to thoughts to fire now
    In fairy rings of fantasy,
    Guilded golden by age, leaving only a girl’s
    Hand, warmed by his love,
    To feel, to touch, to be – real.

    I'll play too, Kat.

    Amarantine is that feeling in love where you give and take. It requires knowing/feeling not only what is best for yourself but for the one you love. Recognizing your own weakness and strength and knowing how to work together. Holding on and letting go.

    After the glow wears off
    My love grows still
    All the mixed times
    Refresh my heart
    And I know that
    No waves crash upon
    That haven to destroy
    I'd rather love and release than
    Not have known at all
    Every breath tells me that


    Cheers-
    Brady
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    Yay..I love these games...im so in!


    I believe Amarantine is an unfading spiritual feeling that you get when you are in love and being loved back. It's that twinkle in your eye that everyone sees and is envious of. Its the deep, rich rose color that surrounds you in your auora. It's the undying element that most people long for in their life. Ugh...I could go on and on because I think I posses Amarantine. I am so ridiculously in love, its hard to describe.

    Anyway I could ramble on and on but here is my poem:

    Every kiss bestowed upon me
    is like fragrance on flowers,
    heat upon the desert,
    mist from morning showers

    Every glance in my direction
    is like flame to the fire,
    a twinkling of stars,
    a spark of love's desire

    Every moment in your arms
    is like waves to the ocean,
    a rushing, primal urge,
    a sweet mix of emotion.
    Like Contests???
