Default 'Ode to Neytiri' And Other Neytiri-Poems By Me.

Hello everybody. It was suggested that I create a thread for my Neytiri-poems, so here it is!

This is the first poem I wrote after seeing AVATAR. It was offered to all the people who love Neytiri, whom I referred to as the Neytiri clan. I hope you like it.


Ode to Neytiri

And now we meet on moonlet fair,
As magical creatures fill the air.
In blue skin clad and elegant face
You pull me close in love’s embrace.

Your flashing eyes, twin sun-orbs bright
And sparkling skin, ‘neath pale moonlight
Remove all fears of perilous height
And guide love’s fierce and tender night.

Your joyous laugh and playful way
Is pure delight ‘neath Hometree’s day.
No greater love has any known
Than what, to me, your heart has shown.

On Toruk wings by day we soar
O’er sparkling lake and gold-flecked shore
And mountains high and verdant land
We see together, hand in hand.

And here you lie all veiled in night
With warrior’s soul and heart-felt might.
‘Neath silver stars and Eywa’s grace,
No higher joy than your embrace.

No greater love can ever be…
I see you, and you see me.
And now—oh, azure goddess fair,
Wrapped in strands of angel’s hair
I sing my love and joy to thee
My sweet and beautiful, Neytiri.

I thought I'd try a different poetic style for this next tribute to Neytiri.

This is for you, the People of the Netyiri clan. I hope you like it.


Daydreaming of Neytiri

Each day when I awake and gaze
toward the east—
With rested mind and open heart,
I’ll see your radiant face
In the sparkle of the morning sun.

I’ll touch a moist blade of grass to my cheek,
And in the cool wetness of each pearly
drop of dew,
I’ll know of a tear you once shed—
Or a love you once knew.

Whenever I see a rose,
With its delicate loveliness—
I’ll see you dancing amid
Pandora’s flowers fair,
Graced with an innocent beauty which,
Unlike the rose,
Will never fade.

I’ll hear your playful laughter in the gentle
Cascade of a bubbling brook;
And when cool evening breezes whisper
Softly through the trees
I’ll hear you sigh, and feel
the distant beating of ikran wings.

A sapphire sea, with its calm, clear
Immensity,
Will speak of the endless capacity
Of your pure and noble heart.
And the waters beneath will hint at
The myriad wonders swirling
In the depths of your warrior’s soul.

When soft clouds above me drift,
I’ll know the smooth, silken softness of
Your luminous azure skin—
And the gentle warmth of your fierce
And loving embrace.

And in the fresh stillness of a pristine night,
when ivory stars wink into view—
I’ll know the twinkle of your
Honey-drenched eyes—
Eyes like twin suns blazing,
Beckoning me to depths
I cannot fathom.

And perhaps then, Neytiri—
Sweet and beautiful Neytiri—
I’ll learn what it means to love,
from the one who has loved me,
and taught me how to live.

Here is another poetic offering to you, the members of the Neytiri clan. I hope you like it.


Walk Gently On My Dreams

You weave your magical spell
On the unpracticed loom of my heart.
Arachne herself could not match
The splendor of your pristine art.

It forms a coverlet finer than silk,
And shines
like atokirina strands,
Aloft in the bioluminescent night—
Caught in the wake of ebullient light
Cast by Polyphemus, bright.

You wrap it ‘round my shoulders
Softly, silkenly…
With strong and gentle arms—
Like gossamer wings
Enfolding me,
Protecting me from harm.

With trembling hands
And novice’s skill
I’ll weave my dreams for thee.
But I cannot hope to match the wonder
Of you, my shimmering reverie.

For you are beyond the span of this world
And the warp and weft of my soul.
I can but spin my heart’s desire
And pray I reach my goal.

I’ll weave my dreams for you, my love,
And spread them at your feet.
But this alone I ask of you,
Neytiri, my sweet:

However unwrought these fabrics appear;
However unseemly these cloths may seem—
Walk gently on them, my fierce true love,
For you are walking
On my dreams….

I wrote the main part of this poem several years ago, and to no one in particular. It has lain fallow most of that time—occasionally being trotted out to share with a friend. I thought of it recently and realized I had finally found an object worthy of the sentiment.

As always, it's for you, the members of the Neytiri clan. I hope you enjoy it. It’s been Neytiri-fied (yes, that is a word… now) for your reading pleasure.


I Knew You, Neytiri

When I was but a fetus
Waiting
To once again taste the breath of life,
No thought, thought I—
Yet even then,
With an awareness I cannot comprehend,
I knew you….

A warrior of old,
I fought the good fight.
And when the battle was ended
And the enemy vanquished,
My thoughts turned homeward
To my lady, my life—
For even then,
Amid the turmoil and strife,
I knew you….

A turquoise sky
In a world during it’s youth
Was the coverlet we shared,
As we dreamed soft dreams
Under autumn skies,
And danced in the sun
In some primitive guise.
Oh, I knew you….

On a distant world,
In a forgotten time—
You and I gazed at two silvery moons
As we walked on a halcyon beach,
Hand in hand,
And spoke of our love on the cool, blue sand.
Yes, I knew you…

When time was not,
And the universe but a dream—
My soul touched yours
And life began.
The stars were born out of our love’s fire
And eternity echoed our joy and desire.
For even then, Neytiri…
Even then, my fiercely beautiful love—
I knew you….

I thought I'd try a more lyrical rhyme scheme for this latest poetic offering to you, the Neytiri clan. I hope you like it.

Awakening to Neytiri

I
With elven ears and catlike nose
And voice as sweet as song;
Pandoran maiden, heavy-laden,
Lovely, good, and strong.

Two citrine eyes, like lemon drops
Set into beauteous face,
And azure, pale—a feline tail!
Epitome of grace.

I’ll sing your praise, Neytiri fair,
And laud your noble way.
Your warrior’s soul I will extol
Each minute of the day.

Your hearty laugh and playful mien
Is such a fine delight!
Your loving smile, all the while
Sustains me through my plight.

II
And when my daily work is done,
And I lay down to rest—
As I am dreaming, I’ll be seeming
Absolutely blessed.

For once again I’ll see your face
Through Morpheus’ gift;
On ikran wings, we’ll see such things…
And set our souls adrift.

For you are always with me, love
In waking state or dream.
And I can feel that you are real,
Though crazy I may seem.

And when my earthly life is done
And day goes down to dark;
I’ll fill my sails, and pierce the Veil
And to your side embark.

III
For life is but a beauteous dream—
No limits need be taken;
And from this life, with all it’s strife,
We two shall both awaken.

And when we reach the Journey’s end,
And music fills our ears…
At that time, with love sublime
I’ll bless you with my tears.

And into Eywa’s realm we’ll step
And sail to silver shore.
We’ll cross that sea, my Neytiri…
And live forevermore.

I had to look up at the dictionary many times before I understood your poems but they are more than worth the effort. If there is a Neytiri clan out there you're the leader of it(I couldn't find the right colour)
