NaPoWriMo 2017, Week 2: April 8 - April 14April 14
There's either too much
or not enough in my world
of second guessing
In other worlds
sharing this planet
you perish either way
The rain comes
without one's permission
but stays when invited
As a child
I collected rain at the beach
as if in a game
When it hid from me
in its taunting
pretending to be the sea
The heart of knowing rain
shows where our faith belongs
I always hear the rain & wind
Both, with sun & moon
Since the drought was quelled
Rain lives within myself
a part of me since birth
when next it will fall
always in doubt
I pray for eternal rain
that I've never seen
when I arrive in eternity
In the labyrinth small birds floating
That attend my deepest niches
They will not wish you to see them
As they spit up prey unswallowed
Do not break in on my darkness
As I preen while evening settles
On my cache of fallen feathers
And the downy nest of hatchlings
Comes the ti
I'm Fashionista and I get around
I set the trends with everything I touch
The city is my jungle through the day
And when the night arrives I'm on the prowl
You know a tiger diva hunts alone
With high-end tastes I only can afford
My chauffeur follows slowly from behind
To keep apace the treading of my stalk
Then patiently awaits while clubbing out
With extra change of clothing if there's blood
You might be wondering if I have guests
I bring back to my lair of chic refined
I always save the very best for last
And keep the cuff link gold as souvenir
Haiku New Year
where e'er you may live
be the spirit of the wind
for both young & old
take care of each one
who has touched your heart & soul
and has lifted you
free one from anguish
the year was grim for many
that one will free you
my simple wishes
like smooth pebbles on the shore
come and be the wave
take these pebbles for
creatures that run, fly and swim
they carry you too
for the plants and trees
and know that earth will thank you
with the air we breathe
both the rain that falls
and the snow on mountain peaks
be the clouds that guide
while the shadows pass
be the seagull's lonely cry
on the thunder's tide
to ride till coasting
o'er the monuments of time
of your home & mine
The Dead of WinterThe Dead of Winter
Winter's come; the snow has fallen,
Dead silence --- land full of forgiveness and pardon.
Tranquil peace. Time stands still,
With waters frozen and birds flying nil.
This tranquil scene, this beautiful place
Holds a nightmare yet unseen,
Of light catching, metal gleaming,
Of horses trotting, of mail clinking.
For men's minds not easily forget,
Of past grudges, insults, and threats.
Blanket the snow like ugly ink upon fleece.
The stage is set for our great tale,
Of men sided with belief; anger that seethes.
A stage with full flags of glory,
Of arrows turning to hail,
Of metal bashing against mail,
Of quick retreats and hasty attacks,
Of War Cries, clashes of the axe,
Of Death and despair, surrender and mercy,
Of the Dead of Winter after a brief burst of fury.
Blue advances first, lines drawn ragged.
Red approaches, boxes and squares.
The colors stop, pause, and stare.
Statues --- silence --- with only flags beating the air,
And the wait, the wait for
[Closed] Contest/Challenge! Draw your OCThe contest is now closed!
Thank you all very much for your amazing entries <3
We will do our best to give you the results as soon as possible, but it will take a bit of time as there are 134 entries ^^
Please make sure your entry has been added to the contest folder:
As described clearly in the rules, your entry must be a new deviation, made with the challenge in mind! Asside from the fact that entering with an exhisting deviation is quite unfair towards your fellow contestants who worked very hard on creating a new piece of art, what is the point of joining a challenge if you are going to submit a drawing you didn't actually make with that challenge
Me, my co-founders and my contributors are very happy to have you with us and look forward to seeing your work.
Basically we don"t have rules...well... only one or two perhaps.
We accept all kinds of art except pornography or pictures of violence or abuse to animals and people. We do however accept horror and macabre as these are not realistic forms of abuse and violence and thats for...
We do not have very strict rules but we would appreciate if you would take care in the choice of the work you submit. We are trying to keep pictures in our group that are of good quality and interesting. Please do not be disappointed if we reject one of your pictures. It may be that the picture you submit is just not quite what we want but you may have other pictures that we will accept
I would like to thank those who are entrusting their work to submit here and those who are watching us.
One big to all of you... keep up the good work
Also feel free to join in my second group called :thumb410900539:
