Why Do You Like to Read?
Why do you like to read? He asked me that one day. Because he didn't much like to read, and he wished I'd rather play. I didn't know the answer then and couldn't quite explain that I used those books, my very best friends, to escape my day to day. I loved to step away from life and into Anne Shirley's world where I could walk to school each day and catch Gilbert's handsome eye. I loved to cross into the magic lands holding Lucy's hand and sit to tea with a fawn and his flute, eating sweet mince pie. Because if I was there with them I wasn't home anymore. I didn't have to think about life or see my latest score. A book was an escape I craved

The Color of Peppermint
What is the color of peppermint? Like his breath in the morning after a shower, an invisible must grazing, cooling your cheeks Is it red and white stripes on a stick where the red rubs off to color pink tongues a shade darker the white is left feeling naked and thin Perhaps white, then, Fresh clean snow wafered in dark chocolate -the kind that breaks softly between teeth like a lisp- But then when melting, it drops translucent pure essence of crisp exhilaration for the senses. Clear, clean liquid of angels Or is it green? Like the leaves of its mother releasing the scent whenever someone comes too close Blue- like the toothpaste carelessly

Just Sit
It's hard to want to keep trying when I can't get my feet to tread and each step slips back through the mud back to where I started from so why not just sit in the pit will no one throw a rope? It's hard to do those things I used to love to do But the food doesn't taste as good and the music seems to play without passion and the words don't flow or won't so why not just sit in the pit will no one throw a rope? I once heard it said that to lose oneself in ones work is the highest form of passion it's dedication at its finest and brings the most fulfillment But if I lose myself What's left? so why not just sit?

Petals in the Wind
moments and memories are petals on that baby boy flower in my hand shades of water and sea wrapped up in each other tightly seemingly inseparable bleeding into each other until they open,      come apart,            expose the most precious parts a flash of sun and  l e t t i n g   g o tiny damp papers     b l o w   a w a y  in the wind,                      blend in with the sky                                   and they are gone

Time
I used to be angry at time. I wanted to close it up in a box to keep it at bay. Then I wanted to close it up in a box to throw it away. But time cannot be kept. Nothing good can stay. And time cannot be lost when you will it away. Time flows like a sieve, but those big things take much longer to pass.  And some, without the choosing, will last and last.

When Once Spring Fell in Love with Winter
I once knew a boy with springtime eyes and a smile that led up to sunshine. He lived by a girl who had wintery hair and a gaze that could turn you to snow. They met in the summer next to the swings at the park where the water shoots out of the ground. And when the water flow slowed and the autumn chill bit, their songs blended concerto one to four. Their two-toned chord held long enough for the storm clouds to break. Then that girl, silly girl, with the wintery hair met a boy who smelled just like summer and she melted so hard and he froze up so fast, that springtime had no time to shine. The crestfallen boy with the springtime eyes wilte

Special Lyrical Feature
It's been a long time since I sat and put one of these together. I love doing it. So without further ado, enjoy the feature set to the lyrics of a song by Jewel. Morning Song (Listen to the song here  ) Let the phone ring, let's go back to sleep Let the world spin outside out door, you're the only one that I wanna see Tell your boss you're sick, hurry, get back in I'm getting cold Get over here and warm my hands up, boy, it's you they love to hold And stop thinking about what your sister said Stop worrying about it, the cat's already been fed Come on darlin', let's go back to bed Put the phone machine on hold Leave the dish
Keep Love Alive
Hello beautiful artists, writers, and photographers. Love you all. I'm feeling dated. :blushes: Maybe That's because it's been a while since I was on here. :D But hey I'm here today. :woohoo: I caught up on a bunch of beautiful deviations and thought I'd pay tribute to some of them here. By the way, if you haven't seen the anime Patema Inverted, it deserves a look-see. So yeah, go look. You're welcome!

A Question and Catch-me-up
Is there a way to purchase a book of my own literature from dA? I like how we can purchase prints of the art, but I wish there was a way to purchase my writing somehow. Just a thought... Anyway, it's been FOREVER since I've been active on dA so here's a little catch up on what's been going on with me and keeping me off dA. *I got a job answering phones from home for a roofer. It disrupts and interrupts me all day long and I'm taken from my world into this other place where I don't necessarily want to be, but hey it's extra money. *I also have been teaching piano and am going to have a recital themed around Halloween. *I'm still managing
