Quietus: Knowing Spring by mitsuki0tennyo Quietus: Knowing Spring by mitsuki0tennyo
"So in this pleasant vale we stand again,
The field of Enna, now once more ablaze
With flowers that brighten as thy footstep falls,
All flowers -- but for one black blur of earth
Left by that closing chasm, thro' which the car
Of dark Aidoneus rising rapt thee hence.
And here, my child, tho' folded in thine arms,
I feel the deathless heart of motherhood
Within me shudder, lest the naked glebe
Should yawn once more into the gulf, and thence
The shrilly whinnyings of the team of Hell,
Ascending, pierce the glad and songful air,
And all at once their arch'd necks, midnight-maned,
Jet upward thro' the mid-day blossom. No!
For, see, thy foot has touch'd it; all the space
Of blank earth-baldness clothes itself afresh,
And breaks into the crocus-purple hour
That saw thee vanish."

    — Demeter and Persephone, Alfred Lord Tennyson
Knowing Spring is third in my Verdant Spring series, it's sister pieces being Envying Spring and Desiring Spring. Only two more to go.

This fanart for AngeLhearteD's Quietus. Which is modern take on abduction myth and combines Naruto's characters with ancient greek mythology. The classical mythological subject of the Rape of Persephone to be exact with Sasuke as Hades and Sakura as Persephone.

Symbolism:
It's all pretty obvious but I will explain some stuff which inspired me, to sound cool, mind you. 

    :bulletgreen: This picture is meant to symbolize a curious Sakura learning about what it means to be the goddess of spring. I like to think she just left Sasuke's library and is heading towards to garden to read the book in her arms.

Technical Information:
Media: Mech Pencil, Ordinary Markers and Photoshop.

the background is one of the joys of travelling a lot on vacation.

Lovely outfit! As Sakura becomes more comfortable with Sasuke, she will begin wearing more daring clothing. Very nice addition to this collection, and there will definitely be scenes where Sakura has her nose in a book in the gardens... which might not please Sasuke that much as he wants her attention all to himself.

At least I imagine Sasuke to have respect for books. I can already imagine a scene were she reads out loud to him in the garden, his head cushioned on her lap.

There will also be scenes similar to that, mind-reader.
