Think Before You Squish
"Excuse me," said the spider to the shoe, "Before you stamp, before you stomp I have something vital to ask of you: "I know I'm scary, I'm a dreadful sight with legs that skitter hither and thither and my many eyes that stare into the night. "But tell me, truthfully: am I the worst? Of the things that creep while you're asleep the stuff of nightmares, those beasts accursed. "No, not some imaginary monsters," the spider said, "They live! They're alive! They are real as your nose and the hairs on your head. "Am I worse than the mosquito that bites? The bumps that itch when you reach to scratch?

Bedtime for Monsters
Listen, hatchlings, and listen well To the story that I shall tell Of the horrors that await Young monsters who do not obey When you don't clean your den at night Or brush your bristled tail just right The Thing that lives above our heads Will come to snatch you from your beds Bony limbs! A toothy mouth! Digits that grasp and waver about! No fur, nor horns, nor jagged beak Lies upon this scaleless freak But I'll tell you of its warning call So your demise you may forestall And live to see another night Where mom and dad can ease your fright A light it shines, from meaty paws, It bulges its eyes, unhinges its jaws, And it will screech with

Beware, Beware
Once upon a meadow fair there was a child and she set off to visit Grand-mama and keep her company She filled her basket full of treats but 'fore she went ahead her mother knelt and pulled her close and this is what she said: (CHORUS) Beware, beware, the monster there is lurking out of sight Beware, beware, the monster there and keep your wits aright And so she went along her way without a fear nor care; when who should she find in her path: a wolf, with hungered glare (CHORUS) "Why child," said he, "where do you go so merry and so bright?" "To granny's," said she, "to bring to her some comfort and delight" (CHORUS) "The meadow road, m

The Wolf on the Hill (Revised)
In a little old house on a little old hill, With the dead black trees and haunted chill, They say there lived a monstrous wolf pup That huffed, and puffed, then gobbled kids up. Three little boys - what a brave young team! No big bad wolf, no matter how mean, Could ever scare them - no, not today! With a huff, and a puff, they made their way. The first boy stood, staring in the mawof gaping darkness; it gave him pause. Like straw in the wind, his nerve gave way In a huff, and a puff, he flew away Boy number two, he wanted his kicks, Throwing tough words and throwing big sticks; But once he heard that ghostly wail, He huffed, and he puffe

1. Pond Water Orange scales against a shadowed sky; autumn's koi leaves. 2. Autumn Settling A spiderweb stretches across shivering branches-- a tree's last scarf. 3. Forest's Canopy On rusting leaves the season's last ladybug opens her wings. 4. Scarab Clouds A flash of curve-- beetle-back clouds crowding out a harvest moon. 5. Hunkering Pines Grandfather pines hunker, bowing to winter as fall's embers fade. 6. Etched Promises Etched into gnarled trees: Spring's promise to return again next year. 7. Dew Crystals Late-season bloomer: morning dew crystallized on a shivering sunflower. 8. Blooming Flames August blooming: green leaves rust

It's ALIIIIIIIVVVEE...?
You guys may have been wondering where I was. Or perhaps you've forgotten about my existence. Either way, I'm here to throw an update into your pile of notifications. In a nutshell: for a while, grad school happened. Then Reddit happened. Oh man, Reddit is almost as bad as dA for sucking up my attention (/r/writingprompts is fun, you guys should give it a shot). Then a baby happened. Haven't really been drawing much, that's difficult to do with grad school, then a kid needing attention. But I've been doing a bit of writing, that's pretty easy to do. Yay! So there will probably be a huge dump of stuff coming over from my Reddit and Flight R

I need votes!
See this photo? It needs votes. It's my entry into Quest Geomatics SnapPostWin contest for $1000 towards tuition. Winning would go a long way towards me graduating with slightly less massive amounts of debt. Voting ends December 15th. Some of you may remember that I had asked for votes on the same contest last year. I didn't win that one; I kinda suck at landscape photography. But this semester, they've made the criteria a little more general, so now I actually stand a chance of winning! Please go here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=533365373419223&set=a.532382370184190.1073741826.114608908628207&type=1&theater and c
