His lap was reserved for science...i still see his hands
coated in soil
mud
dirt
playing god
coaxing seeds to life
bringing his creations to us
maybe that was his love
the calluses from wooden shovels
from making wooden fences
from the circle-purple grapes
the quarter-blueberries
the furry peaches
maybe he loved us
the same way the cat did
secretly perched atop my toddler bed
until dawn danced on my fluttering lids,
leaving before the morning sun
would make stark her black in the light
maybe he loved us
through the water and earth and wind
that fed his garden plants
maybe he loved us
with the force of sunlight
but we just never knew

His lap was reserved for science... by ArbiterGirl

Reminder for everyone: Tell the people you
love, that you care.  They aren't mind-readers.

Blue KentuckyKentucky: the Eden of infinite, rolling blue -
blue mountains smudged by God’s own thumb
into a coal blue sky, everything,
the bark of trees, the dew on grass,
kissed by blue.
That place that fills you with perfume
of honeysuckle vines and sulfur from the
mines, fills you with fear when the Screech Owl
sings her Banshee song.
The land where birds get drunk off the poke-greens’
berries, crawdads pinch fingers in the creek,
saw-briars slash bare legs and stain the hem of
your dress with blood, where moonshine freely
flows from remote and rocky hills.
Kentucky: easily lost and forgotten,
revives old women in various states of decay,
who recount their lives so that they
may grant me inheritance of the world
as it was before me.

Blue Kentucky by sydnerella

A poem that captivates the homeliness
and essence of a homeland, with beautiful
imagery too; country poetry at its finest.

NamesakeThey called him Striking Jonathan, which was funny, in retrospect, when they had to pull him away from a street-brawl, and tragic when they discovered that he learned to fight from his father; but at least they knew he was like them. When pressed for details from the younger kids - the ones that hadn't learned about 'couth' yet, or keeping their mouths shut - he'd just say:
"Childhood is nothing but a story to tell when you're older," which didn't disregard the fact that you are who you know; birds of a feather flock together - and they were all latchkey kids, left to their own neglect until their parents made an appearance and took over for them.
They figured, in the end, that that was why he left; took to standing on street corners instead of door-steps, until the day he got in a car and didn't return.
"D'you reckon he lost his virginity before or after he got in a car?" Beatnik - Beat Nick (their names were a part of their lives, and their lives a part of their name) - is the one to

The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter side shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso.  Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back.  There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end).  I reach.  He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye.  When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers.  Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine.  I follow him out the door.

Schattentaenzer Shadowdancers A Poem in German and English
 
   
Das Licht des Tages schwindet
Und die Welt liegt im Zwielicht
Ich öffne die Augen
Das ist der Augenblick in dem das Leben mich bindet
Das Zwielicht ist die Jagdzeit der Kreaturen
Die weder zu Licht noch zu Dunkelheit gehören
 
Wir sind die Wächter zwischen Licht und Dunkelheit
Halten die Wage zwischen Licht und Schatten
Greifen ein, wenn eine Seite überwiegt
Wir sind die Verlorenen die niemand beachtet
Die, die immer da sind, doch von niemandem wahrgenommen
Doch wer es will sieht und verschwommen
 
Wir sind wie die Schatten in denen wir wandeln
Immer da doch nie gesehen
Regeln alles ohne dass ihr es versteht
Wir schützen euch ohne das ihr es merkt
Tun im Verborgenen unser Werk
Leben und sterben ungesehen

Schattentänzer by Finnyanne

This work is very thought-inducing,
reflecting the emotions of someone seeing
the world with other eyes. It is written out of a
gut feeling, energy that is flown from mind into pen.

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New


CSS3 Options for Journal Skins


Additional CSS options for Journal Skins have been released! Journal Skin designers can now use the transform, transform-origin, transform-style, and transition attributes when coding their Journal Skins, allowing for more dynamic designs than ever before.

Change Log


  • The "Remove from Messages" button was missing from the new mobile deviation page. Fixed by yumeruby
  • Portfolios were not rendering properly on mobile devices. Fixed by ArtBIT
  • For a brief period, clicking the 'Add this widget' button on any widget while editing one's Profile Page would reload the page. Fixed by helloandre
  • Sitback controls were not displaying in Chrome. Fixed by ArtBIT
  • The Critiqueable page was two weeks behind. Fixed by elhsmart
  • When browsing a deviant's Gallery, the Gallery Folder links displayed underneath thumbnails had to be double-clicked to work properly. Fixed by ultramouse
  • Emails notifying of a Prints order being shipped did not include the shipping address. Fixed by ArtBIT
  • For some users, the Featured Prints widget would display deleted deviations. Fixed by duraseb
  • In Chrome, a small number of deviation thumbnails in the "More from deviantART" section on deviation pages would be blank. Fixed by yumeruby
  • Zoomed out image deviations were improperly side-scrolling, causing the scroll bar to appear below the image rather than the bottom of the browser window. Fixed by duraseb

Sta.sh Writer
  • Pressing enter at the end of a link or heading would not end that link or heading, and it would instead continue into the next line. Fixed by Alisey
  • Pressing backspace would not delete an empty blockquote. Fixed by Alisey
  • When previewing a comment in the Forums, the preview wouldn't display thumbnails. Fixed by inazar
  • The Add Media tool would occasionally fail to load when opened on the Edit Deviation page, or when editing a Sta.sh stack's description. Fixed by inazar
  • When previewing a comment, the display would be inaccurate if unclosed tags were left somewhere in the comment. Fixed by kemayo
  • In Sta.sh Writer, the "Link" toolbar popup's "OK" button would get stuck saying "Loading..." after a URL was added. Fixed by kemayo

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of the feedback you left for us:
  • Deviants were generally positive about the change to the mobile deviation page. Some deviants disliked the absence of the "Remove from Messages" button; it has been returned to the top of the deviation page.
  • Feedback regarding the integration of Verold embedding was positive.
  • Responses to the Discuss topic varied, though there were common points of agreement between members. Several deviants mentioned organizing their Collections by medium or by fandom, depending on the purpose of the Collection.
  • Some deviants said that their Collections were to showcase artwork to other artists, while others mentioned their Collections being for personal organization. A few deviants mentioned using Collections for both.

Discuss!

RevelationThe couch beneath me is old
The cappuccino machine across the room?
Younger than I am
For a moment I forget why I’m here
Coffee? Conversation? Company?
Feedback from the mic grates against my eardrums
While patrons chatter with excitement
One performer, two performer, three
Each one weaving words with artistic grace
The first lights a spark
Second sets down the tinder
Third fans the flames
I am pulled aside for a moment
My attention drawn to my heart
I lace my fingers through his
As he asks if I want to leave
I tell him no, It’ll be over soon
But really I want to hear what they have to tell me
About myself, themselves
Heat and emotion mingles with smooth laughter
An amused look from my other half
Is met by a smile
Sweet words warm those who hear them
While leaving my bitter drink growing cold
The personal glances of an impersonal audience
Draws me inward
Old dreams reignited with the hope of a future
I thought was lost
It’s only when the fourth artist speaks
With a da

I Belong HereI went down to the rainy river one night, hoping to lose myself in the cold, clear waters.
Foggy, warm, the smell of wood smoke drifting down the banks; I stood in the middle of the current, knowing if I was sucked under no one would find me for quite some time. I could hear the pealing of the church bells in the village, miles away, carried softly to me on the faint breeze. They reminded me of the distance I had put between myself and those walls, the distance between the people sitting in those pews and the world I had escaped to.
I blocked out the bells. I blocked out the birds coming down to the water for a drink before putting down for the night; I blocked out the howling of hunting dogs picking up my scent several miles down the trail; I blocked out even the sound of the water bugs, floating and flitting across the top of the rushing water. I blocked out all but the beat of my heart and the sound of the stars far above -- I could feel them calling to me, and even as I stood chest

Old FriendsThe visit happened suddenly, and to her complete nonsurprise.
She had been typing up a report on various South Asian butterflies when he had simply appeared in her room, as casually as if they had agreed beforehand to meet there. “Hello,” he said calmly from the doorway. “Don’t mind me.”
“Hello there,” she replied, just as casually. “You’re always welcome here.” She didn’t bother turning around, knowing that, at her age, she would no longer be able to see him. She was aware that she was far beyond the age where visitations by imaginary friends, however beloved when younger, were considered acceptable. But she was about as bothered as she was surprised.
“It’s been a while since I last visited,” she heard him say mildly as he walked around the room, just out of her sight.
“It has,” she agreed. “Sorry, I don’t think there’s another chair here.”

Reisefieber...Endlich es ist soweit. Der erste Urlaubstag.
Ich sitze am Bahnhof. Drei Stunden bevor mein Zug eintrifft, um mich dorthin zu tragen, wo ich mein Herz verlor. Noch drei Stunden warten. Aber ich liebe es auf dem Bahnsteig zu sitzen und die Atmosphäre zu genießen. Die ein- und abfahrenden Züge, die ein leises Singsang von sich geben. Nicht mehr wie früher, dass es einem beim Bremsen fast das Trommelfell zerriss. Sondern ganz modern. Es klingt fast wie eine Tonleiter, mit leisen Tönen, die mich friedlich einlullen.
In Urlaubsstimmung.
Gespannt sitze ich auf der Bank und beobachte die Gesichter der Menschen, die von einem Gleis zum anderen eilen. Es macht mir Spaß sie zu beobachten. Die Hektik in ihren Augen. Das Heimweh oder auch die Sehnsucht in die Ferne. Ich fühle es direkt in mir.
Teile ihre Anspannung und Entspannung. Menschentrauben sammeln sich um mich. Studieren ihre Fahrpläne und auch ich schaue nun zum Xten- mal auf meine Fahrkarte.

Suggester writes: Subject is an apparently everyday situation. A woman standing on a platform, waiting for her train. And yet it is quite a wonderful mixture of the descriptions of everyday observations and the increasing expectant tension of the protagonist who drives back home to her loved one.
