Is no longer alone
his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all hea
BlessingMy father strangled a birdMore Like This
quietly, calm as gravity,
there in the garden. He bent
as if praying to the torqued wing
reddening his hand.
The night hunkered down on the screaming
wildness, on the kicking legs, the abrupt
and awe-filled silence. I watched him
watch the beak open, close,
like rippling lake water.
I loved him, the mercy
of his heavy knuckles, the kindly
He closed the beak like a priest

God dwells in a fig tree,
her spellbound history
runs up and down her trunk like a river;
My grass is rich with blade-soft green
and a delicate sheen beneath the sloping ground
sends treasures upwards through the soil
to linger at my feet;
In every bird-sound is a colour,
in every winking colour a truth
whose key is a silver weight in my hand,
and I can see into everything
forever and ever into the end of time
where the eternal gardens begin.
DreamscapeI dreamed of vivid colours once,More Like This
of bloody red and inky blue,
while life was ruled by lonely gray,
washed-out black and too-bright white
that left its canvas' edges frayed.
A brush that painted only dreams unreached
and expectations unfullfilled,
left a drowning world and city ruins,
and endless roads untravelled.
Colour had long bled out and faded,
living on in distant memories
of a shining sun that dawns in red
and chases away the black of the night,
and a bright, wide sky drenched in blue
fighting the desert of white.

JusticeHee, Ha, Huu, Haga! Justice is served. For these four deviants, (who all just happen to be Deviantart journalists in some capacity) who feature and tribute out of love for the community, making someone happy is reward enough. It is not reward enough in the eyes of the masked justice which I serve, however. So I bring to you just four deviants who I believe to be exemplarary contributors to the community. Just four, but there are so many more.More Like This
I apologize if this article is ill-recieved, I do not write often, nor do I have much experience in posting...public notices. But I come out of the dark green shadows because I must, I simply must let the DevEarth know. ((A disclaimer: There is some mild nudity. Not of me, however))
Also, I think it fair to ask that you not inform these deviants of this news article. They do not know they are being featured, I like to work in secret, and
Seniority Announcement - December 2011This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 800 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.More Like This
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised
DeviantART Compliments #67How can I begin to describe the grandness of those I've met on deviantArt? There's ElfangorCharizard, a witty and humorous fellow, with a kind heart and a strong spirit. Also, the intelligent and lovely Miss Jillian411, who's genius writing has cheered up more than just one cloudy day. There's also SphericalOne (Sir Llama) who's an absolute delight!More Like This
I must say that, had it not been for these and other lovely deviants, I would not be here, writing this compliment today.
With deepest love~
fetchmonkey is the most amazing person I've met online (guess it's obvious as to who this is now but anywho...). His art is SO awesome and is still staggering up the ladder - keep going man!
I find it really really easy talking to him about... well, everything too (love those RPs we do >:3). I honestly don't know where I'd be without you; you always seem to bring my spirits up when we chat about really random, funny things.
You're properly thinking why I'm writing
