    • Greetings Himali, Namaste 🙂

      My Lady arrives as would a dream waking with the Dawn,
      Radiant and scintillating, her Star each day reborn
      Ever brighter, she ascends the Heavens to sit and gaze upon me,
      And me gaze upon her beauty, Lady Rosewood Himali.
      Upon raven-wings her dark hair streaming
      Himali comments on my artistic dreaming
      ‘May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you’
      And ‘wiz you alwayz also, Lady of Rosewood hue’.

      Thank you for enjoying my Artwork…you know your perspective is highly valued now, your critique important and relevant.

      It’s always my pleasure to entertain you here at Castle Deeply Dewin 🙂 You are always warmly welcome.

      Until next time we meet beneath the lazy boughs of a giant Oak, take care Himali.

      “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

      God Bless. Namaste 🙂


      • Hello DN,

        Your blogs and artwork certainly makes me smile and your poetry touches my heart. I shall start sending the pictures to you soon 🙂

        Namaste to my English Knight

        • Good morning Himali, Namaste 🙂

          Sunlight scythed through the hapless grey,
          My Lady radiant, majestic this day.
          Her sweetest words left upon my page,
          For her gentle beauty to inspire this Sage.
          If words to thank you were sufficient,
          I’d use them liberally,
          But even a Thank You would be deficient,
          To say ‘Thank You’ to Rosewood Himali.

          Thank you so much Lady Himali 🙂

          “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

          God Bless. Namaste 🙂


    • Hey Opher,

      Thank you for your enthusiastic comment. That’s kind.

      “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

      Namaste 🙂


  1. Your artwork Dewin is always creative and magical as well as inspiring and relevant to your posts
    Wishing you continued Magic with your colourful wand of creative talents..
    Sue :-0

    • Greetings Lady Dreamwalker, Namaste 🙂

      With a flourish of fine kindly words you leave a colourful trail,
      An inspiring comment on my page, one leading beyond the veil,
      Encouraging me possibly to dip the magic tip, and get on with it,
      Creating the next image from the bridge of my cockpit!
      Fair Lady Sue, how are you on this autumn evening?
      I trust your wand is all a quiver, your ideas flowing as a river,
      Life giver ever buoyant with ideas, Her dream a stream of glittering,
      Her flickering a shimmering, a fluttering of tittering and worded whispering!

      Thank you stopping by and saying ‘hi’ 🙂 Always lovely to see you here at Castle Deeply Dewin…a space always at our Round Table for Lady Sue D, Walker of Dreams.

      Until next time, enjoy the remainder of your week, take care in all ways always.

      “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

      God Bless. Namaste 🙂


  2. Your artwork is stunning, Dewin – so incredibly beautiful. It takes my breath away. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart with us. Hugs to you, dear friend 💜

    • Greetings Fair Lady Tina of the Purple Hearts, Namaste 🙂

      A delight indeed to welcome thee once again to Castle Deeply Dewin. I hope you are well and flourishing 🙂 As always it is my treat to entertain you at our table: your seat is assured, your company most welcome. I trust during your visit your breath will return to you, but equally I enjoy the way your stolen breath settles to find form in generous words of a comment on my page. Thank you…I shall keep that breath always safe here at chez Dewin 🙂

      I take a lot of enjoyment from sharing and having people share with me: the pleasure of posting is that it concludes a personal experience, and then sometimes becomes one shared via honest and sincere exchange of comments with readers. The art-work presented here reflects my inner and outer experiences in Life, in Love, in Living. They were all generated to compliment the story of The Wizard Of Wands. That is also a personal story as much a fantasy: it blends reality and fantasy, or rather it deposits reality within fantasy 🙂 I thoroughly enjoy the process of image creation: it is more difficult for me to condense ideas into images than it is for me to find words. I have a bias for words, but Love image making just as much…the struggle to complete an image is far more rewarding than writing, I think because the process takes more effort per hour spent actively engaged in it than writing. Digital composition takes considerable time, whereas on a good day I can finish a half-dozen poems if keyed into it. I love both aspects of self-expression passionately and do my best to balance myself between their two Moons 🙂

      Art is found centred in the Heart where Love and Passion burn brightest: She is the motivating forces behind all creative enterprise. Wonderful Muses, forever giving, never-fading, flaming scarlet Roses, passionate forces of Love: Lovers of the Poet, Goddess of the Soul, Friends of the Heart. Twins, both perfect in every way 🙂

      Thank you for your gleaming friendship and valued readership, for venturing this side of the puddle to warm the Great Hall at Deeply Dewin, and for bringing a purple heart with you. I shall display it with gratitude on the mantelpiece where it will remain warm above the fire and glitter with the glimmer of sparkling flame 🙂

      Lovely to have you comment, thank you. Enjoy your weekend Fair Lady Tina. I trust it will bestow health, wealth and happiness upon you in all ways. Peace and Love 🙂

      “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

      God Bless. Namaste ❤


  3. Oh, Lord Dewin, I do so delight in your comments 🙂 They move me to sing and dance, breathe in Divine light, send forth the energy of magic and miracles, and wrap my arms around all of existence. You are a bright light in the world, a treasure to carry through all eternity. I am so grateful to know you 💜💜

  4. Evening greetings Lady Tina, Namaste 🙂

    How wonderful to log-on first thing this morning and find notification of your comment in my email 🙂 My Monday was destined to be busy and an extra boost of Love and Kindness was especially welcome: the perfect defence against the Dark Arts 😉 Thank you for the force of your sentiments: you know how I delight in your fragrant comments, revel in them, then re-read them again lol 🙂 Indeed I was there with you embracing the whole of existence and wondering at the seamlessness of it all whilst melodic in heart and soul…I think we were humming the same tune, but your light burnt brighter than mine, always has, always will, for all eternity. You are an effervescent lantern 🙂 Two purple hearts! Aww…that’s now three flickering in flame-light on the mantelpiece…a perfect number, thank you…they cast a wonderful warmth of lavender across stony walls: a purple hue of amethyst blue wrapped in satin and calming. 🙂

    You do have a very comfortable way with lovely words Tina and I love the way you use them all lol 🙂 Lord Dewin of Castle Deeply Dewin…now there’s a title to always aspire to 🙂 It has a certain ring to it, don’t you think? I once imagined what my castle would look like if I ever owned one or had chance to afford a great grand folly. I’d like a spherical Castle fully glazed in mirrored glass, about the size of an inflated hot air balloon, built near the very top of a distant hill in the middle of nowhere with a sun terrace at the top. And if not that, then a tree house in a remote isolated jungle and adoption by a nomadic tribe. There is no middle ground or normality that would satisfy. As it is, my virtual Castle here on Word Press can be anything I imagine it to be. Perhaps it should even morph as an idea as I morph through life? 🙂

    Lovely to have stop by. Thank you for warming my morning with your radiance and shine. It’s always a pleasure to entertain you and share a platter of words Lady Tina, you are missed by all when you go. Thank you for your friendship and gracious company 🙂

    “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

    God Bless. Namaste ❤


    • A spherical Castle or tree house… We share the same vision, Lord Dewin of Castle Deeply Dewin. I shall visit often and drink in the ‘wonderful warmth of lavender across stony walls: a purple hue of amethyst blue wrapped in satin and calming.’ Will you serve tea or wine? Either or both shall satisfy. I see many an evening of pleasant repartee and reverie. My friendship is ever yours, and you gracious company, my delight 💜💜💜

      • Fair Lady Tina of the Purple Hearts, who scribes rhyme so effortlessly, Namaste 🙂

        Your warming comments waxing lyrically, graciously and kindly: always supportively,
        So yes indeed Lady T, our Lady of Heartfelt Nobility, visit whenever you may please,
        Dewin’s weekend of wild ceremony: days of audacious reverie, punctilious politeness, raving repartee
        Drunk on sugar and tea-leaves, O the debauchery! Dionysius hisses his disapproving snipe, his gripe
        In forgoing the vine, the fine wine whining grape, fruit grappa to leave the mind out of shape,
        Not sharp for Custom, Discussion, Pantomime or pageantry, or fabled parties at Castle Deeply!
        Oh, and whilst I remember, never wait on the lackadaisical guard:
        You are Herald and Holder of the Lavender Shard,
        One worthy from a Kingdom Afar, a lantern illuminated by a purple star,
        Brilliant and bright, a tone just right to tinge white walls at Castle Deeply Dewin.
        So come on in, just walk right within, tripping your light and grooving!

        Many thank you’s Tina for your valued friendship, your gracious company, and your generosity, warmth and Love. You are a lantern leading us all to a purple end. Thank you 🙂

        “May the whizz of the Wizard alwayz be wiz you!”

        God Bless. Namaste ❤


        • Such a beautiful poem… Thank you, my friend. I shall delight in joining you at Castle Deeply. Your hospitality waxes brilliant and illuminates my heart 💜 dear Dewin. And in my heart you shall always be 💜💜

          • Namaste Fairest Lady T, Poet of Purple Sentimentality,
            Ever waxing lyrically, shining-out brilliantly,
            Lavender and mauve, she flows effortlessly
            By lantern light deliriously, so bright is she,
            Fair Lady T, comments to delight with generosity,
            And kindness and consideration felt heartedly,
            Spelt out in a spell written for me,
            In friendly words of poetry.

            You are always welcome at Castle Deeply Dewin where the Great Hall is softened by the purple-blue hue of purple hearted you, left atop the mantle 🙂

            Enjoy your Sunday afternoon. Brightest Blessings for the week ahead.

            “May the whizz of the Wizard always be wiz ya!”

            God Bless. Namaste ❤


            P.S: Should be interested in an alternate set of poems and musings to the normal fare, I have a new page started called Dewin's Out-House. It's a place to scribble, dribble, vent and scrawl lol 🙂 See what you think. 🙂


            Namaste 🙂


    • Greetings Lady Stephanie of Glastonbury Tor, Namaste 🙂

      I hope life finds you well and fair, my West Country Lady with waxen hair,
      And flair for writing with utmost care, thrillers with corpses, heroes with dare!
      With chiselled cheeks and steely gaze, ice-cold demeanours passionately ablaze,
      Chasing maidens succumbing to Demonic ends, torturously screaming as Hell descends,
      Their lives upon this Knight depends, their flesh fast food for Black Dragons!
      Unleashed an army flying West, surrounding the Tor grounded to nest,
      Their Quest a mission that will never rest, a plot so evil carried out with zest,
      They chase the crimson of the pheromone Moon, sweet maiden’s virtue, first weave of the loom,
      Impregnate deep within the womb, to seed and spawn far more Hell born,
      Who’ll feed and bleed and pillage and plunder and cast fabled Glastonbury asunder!
      Stephanie what on Earth will you all do, when Black Dragons come for all of you?
      Will you find means to quell their thunder: perhaps quill a tale to take them under?
      Back to Hell to squirm in Fire, burn flesh and bone in St. George’s Pyre!

      Not sure where the poem came from: you know how it is when fingers start typing and lines just write themselves. Eh Voila 🙂

      Anyway, thank you very much for kind and curious comments on the artwork. I often enjoy you slanted take, so might ask how the images calmed? Of course I am pleased that they did, that you found something in them to centre your thoughts. Do you have a favourite piece amongst them all?

      I haven’t visited your Blog for a few long days, my apologies for that. Was the last occasion to sniffle at a Don McLean track? If so, it would be wise to stop by and bring a happier melody. I did see the new book jacket and agreed with your enthusiasm for it. I thought it nicely balanced as an image, poised between gentleness and loss. You have a good eye for what you like.

      I’ll leave you to enjoy your Saturday and wish you Brightest Blessing and best wishes for the week ahead. Hoping all is well in all ways always. Take care.

      “May the whizz of the wizard always be wiz ya!”

      God Bless. Namaste 🙂


  5. Hi Dewin,
    Thought I’d start checking in here and continue as I am able. I enjoyed listening to Stairway to heaven, as I walked though the halls of your always enchanting-intriguing art.
    Looking forward to what is next…
    My warm regards and best wishes to you,
