It was a beautiful morning in the month of april, the sky was clear and the sun was shining. It was perfectly warm and you could feel a small breeze blowing in from the south. This perfect morning you could find two dragons sleeping next to eachother by a small lake. These two dragons where the one's who would change the future of this realm, but this was yet unknown for both of them. But that would soon be changed.
Abacus opened his eyes, he had had a good night of sleep and felt ready for a new day to start. He felt something warm against his side and turned to look at the dragoness sleeping beside him. He had his wing draped over her and smiled while admiring her beautiful crystal blue and gray scales, and he couldn't help but to look at her sleek form. She had curled up beside him and he found it to be verry cute. Her name was Cascade

And Then They Were Gone
They were all gone. The eight of them. Gone.
Sasori had been the first one to fall. He had lived long enough, he had thought, and had let himself die, by the hands of the family he had once.
Then Kakuzu. It hadnt taken him long before passing away. A last blast from the Copy-Cat ninja after fighting the Kyuubi child, and he was done for.
Next was Hidan. Who would have known that a masochistic immortal like him would have been defeated, by a kid that is?
And then came Deidaras turn. His hatred for the Uchiha blood-limit took him to his very last breath, finishing off in a blast of art.
No one expected Itachi to leave afterwards. A battle against his own flesh and blood, the one he had tried to protect all those years, and he rendered his last breath with a smile.
After them followed Kisame. Watching all his friends departure, having to bear being left behind, he died after a few we

I have adopted two soul mantras. I can't tell you what they are. I guess keeping them secret has a secret in itself, one that belongs to the universe rather than to me, but the intentions are mine. If I don't say what they are directly though, then I don't think I am breaking the secret. I visualise a running river, moving clouds, falling petals, growing buds, observing sunrises and sunsets, ducks, cats, wind chimes. I hear in my thoughts rain hitting everything, what that sounds like against tree bark, concrete, a car roof, a wooden verandah.
We are as a fire. The smoke rises and becomes of little consequence. It colours the air, twists into shape like moments, and dissipates. We are not the smoke, we are the fire. The smoke should always fall away, it is no use in holding on to what has already burnt out. We are as the fire.
It is not then. It is not even now. The moment has already passed.
There is no moon out. I cut out a white paper moon and held it to

Once you told me you didn't like the way I curl myself towards you

I took the long way home that night thinking about what you said, staring at my feet
Forcing them to point forward. Every time they disobeyed I pinched myself till my thighs were anesthetized,
So now I cant feel my legs.

I'd bite my lip, as the sun hit the L in useless,

That day I found you sitting on the edge of my bed reading your words,
The sunlight hit your nose as you stared at that L in useless.
Your top lip quivered as your bottom lip cringed
You pulled them down
I called you the next day,
You had the voice of last years cough

The town square had been full of people and festivities for the celebration of the month. The sun was setting now and the square was empty and deathly quiet. Litter was strewn about, vendors had packed up and only the tents remained. All of the towns people were down in the park awaiting the annual fireworks display. The glow from the sun gave everything a yellowish brown hue.
ilbv had been frantically packing his bags to head to the fairs, but he had been caught up in work that was long overdue. ilbv wolfed down a sandwich and made a mad dash for the door. He was off down the corridors of the town, trying to get to the park before the sun set and the fireworks began without him. "I wish I had a damn car." he muttered.
High up in the clouds, the great dragon Khael was flying over the town, he knew that everyone was further off in the park and that he would be safe from human sight if he landed down in the square to take a break as the great brown and yellow dragon

Well, the title of this piece promises a guide to writing for and about kids. This is an all-encompassing phrase that, I hope, will grab anybody who wants to write for or about any characters between the ages of about nought and eighteen. So, is this the part where I reveal that this guide is actually more limited than that? No it is not! At least, I have done my very best to cater to all possible needs, with the following handy headings:

Rap vs. poetryMost writings about the difference between rapping and poetry are merely an artificial opportunity to note the difference between Snoop Dogg and Edgar Allen Poe or some such mismatching. Of course, we should look at the two art forms with a fair, levelled comparison, or at least objectively.Rap vs. poetry5 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Just as raps have a stereotypical subject matter, poetry could be thought of as being solely about crying, love and over-dramatic metaphor. Let's pluck a poem from the depths of deviantart.com:

Of course, having been written by an unskilled poet with sub-standard grammar (that is, there is no significance of the grammar used in the poem), it's not really better than Snoop Dogg. If we compare it to a rap by a skilful rapper:

"What's happening?" a man yelled as fiends swarmed the streets of the town, spitting and shrieking, dashing towards the fleeing people as they sought to attack and seize victims. Fire set ablaze among the houses and shops and buildings as people scattered, frightened of what was happening, of what was going on, the sudden occurrence of the attack. Was a battle being waged, using their small city as the field? They did not know, nothing was foretold, had their territory been chosen by opposing forces to cross arms and kill each other, they wondered. No it was one-sided, unopposed. This was no war, it was slaughter. Slaughter of a very cruel kind indeed. They were being attacked, and for what? There town held nothing of value the Dragons might want or seek to pillage. Yet peril struck as a huge bolt of lightning would, obliterating a section of its target in its journey to reach the ground, as fire swept and ate its way, spreading quicker than any disease could.

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
My hands have been lazy, my tongue has fouled many hearts and minds, my eyes have given into fleshly desires, my lips have touched sacred essences that were never meant to be mine, and my teeth have torn greedily into gifts that I have taken for granted. I thank you for your incomparable mercy and understanding, and beg for you, my Father, to wash me clean of my sins and debts with your own flesh and blood of your one and only son Jesus Christ, and to fill me with the Holy Spirit so as to be guided in your amazing plans.
I know now that you understand the pains, you know there will truly be no rest for us and the wicked until the day we are to go back to the realms we came from.

The light begun to fade as the sun set below the horizon. A young light blue dragoness wonders though the forest for a place to rest. Once she has found a place, which was a small abandoned fox den, she rested. The next morning was a rainy one. The dragoness didn't mind the rain, but with the rain pouring into the den, she could see why the foxes abandoned it a while back. Quickly, she dug though the moss and gently picked up a light colored egg in her mouth and walked out of the den.
As the rain continued, she wondered for another place for her to stay for the next three months. It was about 20 minutes later when the rain finally stopped, by that time, the dragoness found an old tree with its roots sticking out from the ground creating an interior under them. She went inside slowly, looking for any signs of any inhabitants. Thankfully, there were none. The place had been abandoned for s

People come and go, exchanging glances, money and goods with each other, before parting ways for the rest of the day. I couldn't even recount the amount of times I'd been here, but my partner loved the place, and in all honesty, so did I. There was always a friendly face, and everyone always seemed to genuinely take an interest in what you had to say, even if it wasn't much. I had even begun to remember some of the merchants by name - Zack the vitamin seller, Jacob who ran the lemonade stand and Steven from the pharmacy to name a few. There were always new faces every time we came here, though. Kind, hurried, frustrated; even an angry pair arguing over the cost of fresh water.
