hot steam fades
from the cup
dense with the seasons
inhaled by the morning
as the city wakes
itself to a brightness
of milk and honey
I smile and bring the
sun's fragrant warmth
to my lips
If I were to write to you
in a series of mistakes
and past contemplations,
my letter would go as far
as your spirits would lead you.
And if the truth

Love conquers all borders
and builds the foundations
for our bony, crannied bridges
changes the way we see ourselves
consider yourself lucky.
Fortunate of the long growing madness
that was never yours to bare
Neither torn or crumpled
by the inner peace
void in the barren yet thirsty deserts
we call our hearts.
life hangs on the edge
of your own mouth
but the decision to fall
Trust me, I know-
it's how fear works.
do more than peer through a cave,
look where you would think
the way none of us ever could
in the darkness.
Leave me behind, darling.
I am too weary and you are far too young.
The world is too fast and you are too wonderful.
|"Be careful. You are not in wonderland. |
I've heard the strange madness long growing in your soul.
But you are fortunate,
In your ignorance.
In your isolation.
You who have suffered,
find where love hides.
Give, Share, Lose.
Lest we die unbloomed."

curl the slightest smile-
head tilted where
the sky is but a
touch of blue-
and utters the word
'beaut(if)ul' as if in question.
her feet shuffle
and her arms
close like a space
for the word
like silent syllables
graceful and unspoken.

Haku from ChihiroThe grass fields were as delicate as the spring wind that kept me close to these flightless wings in this wide, open space. Dusts of you lay bare on this mountain, in the air breathing out rain and sun, in dirt and rivers running through this cup of earth you once called home. Every wildflower popping out of this brown shell bent toward the bank where you used to swim, your hands reaching out to some fish or some lost pebble smooth as your skin.Haku from Chihiro by brokengod--veins
It was a cry for birds, your laughter. How it rolls and tumbles like their nests when the air kisses every dancing tree with a passion. You rarely did laugh, much less smile, and I look for it in every second. I look for you the moment I wake up at dawn when the world is still half-asleep--in the gentle aching sky hoping you were just some lost cloud out of touch. In every sip of tea, in every bite of breakfast. I always keep the window open.
You were in every flower petal, every moon drum beating against the fever of the night. So graceful yet

Structuring a Story: Linear VS Non-LinearStructuring a Story: Linear VS Non-LinearCRLiterature
Thanks to everyone who took part in last week's workshop! <3
I'm looking for people to help run workshops (more detail at bottom).
So now that we’ve talked about how to kick start our imagination, we now need to start putting those ideas on paper. I was going to do an article on planning Project Educate’s story planning week was not long ago. There’s a roundup of PE’s story planning week here: http://beccalicious.deviantart.com/journal/PE-Story-Planning-Round-up-378695534
I recommend it; it’s very useful and interesting.
So now onto structure.
I like to split structure up into two categories: linear structure and non-linear structure (simple, eh?). Linear being when the events of the story happen in chronological order eg Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
Non-linear allows for detailed or in-depth flash backs, or may start at the end of a story, or even the middle of a story, and hav
How to Make the Most out of Lit GroupsCommunity WeekTheMaidenInBlack
..and stay active! Which we all know isn't always easy.
with a side of "submission rules, those tricksies"
Now, first of all: this article assumes a lot of stuff!
you're interested in writing and/or reading.you're not joining thousands of groups just to submit your stuff all over the place to get exposure but give nothing back.
you're not simply following groups to stay up-to-date on their events and news, without really wanting to participate in their life.
And with that off of our systems, let's start the tour!
First of all, remember this: Lit groups take a lot more effort than any other. This is because, obviously, reading through deviations takes more time than viewing pictures and photographs.
So let's create a fictional situation.
I know there are people who are on deviantART multiple times a day, but let's suppose that you're an average user who logs in once a day, and has thirty minutes to an hour of free time to devote to dA. And when
Devious Journal EntryTagged by hopeburnsblue!haphazardmelody
Sorry my journal did this weird thing where it couldn't decide what color the words should be, and I'm...too lazy to fix it...
1. You must include the rules in your journal.
2. List five random things about yourself.
3. Answer questions the tagger asked you.
4. Choose five people to tag in your journal and ask them five questions.
1. I own a red-tailed black freshwater shark. He's about 5 inches long. He eats algae. (By the size, he's probably actually a she, but I gave him a male name so...whatever.)
2. I am seriously obsessed with sushi. So delicious!
3. My car is rusting apart from the bottom up...but to be fair, it's about 16 years old.
4. I have never owned a smart phone. Only dumb phones.
5. When I make jokes, I tend toward a deadpan delivery. People who don't know me well don't usually know I'm joking. It can get awkward.
1. You may already have seen my poll, but I still l
On Literary Criticism and dA CritiqueThis is going to be one of those days in which I simply decide in forsaking my usual approach towards writing poetry or short stories or an obscure essay or a review or even a non-fiction tale, for something of a much more important degree of understanding.shehrozeameen
Now, before we collectively peruse the nature of the critique; the method of the critique; the varieties of the critique; and the balance needed in writing a critique; let us first define what a critique truly is.
According to (Pickering, 2004), a critique - or more correctly, "literary criticism" - can be defined as:
Literary Criticism is nothing more or less than an attempt to clarify, explain, and evaluate our experience with a given literary work. (Pickering, 2004, "Reader's Guide to the Short Story", Pearson Prentice Hill)
There's a wonderful paragraph about the purpose of writing a critique but I won't post it here since:
This is not a literature paper
This is an essay just to help people understand why critiq
