Literature
chaos butterfly - limerick
There once was an old butterfly,
Its wings the colour of sky.
Though dainty in form
It stirred up a storm
Whenever it started to fly.

Literature
Doom -- Space Marines R Us
There's something moving back there in the dark,
With razor-tipped claws and teeth like a shark;
Its inhuman grunts drip like ice down my spine
And its blood-red eyes glow with an unholy shine.
Driven by blood-thirst, it hungers for me;
It snuffles my scent, and gurgles in glee.
With a blood-curdling shriek it leaps 'cross the room,
And I blow off its head with an almighty boom.
Smoke curls up slowly, like the vapours of hell,
As with a smooth action I eject the spent shell;
In goes another, with a comforting click.
As I step o'er the corpse I give it a kick.
One demon down, a thousand to go.
I'd tackle them all if I had the ammo.
Shouting my warcry I take out another:
"Eat lead and die, you great ugly mutha!"
Little or large, from imp up to Knight,
From Baron, to Caco, to great Cyber fright,
I'll blast 'em, I'll hack 'em, I'll make 'em all pay;
They killed my pet bunny -- they'll all rue the day!

Literature
1000 words - darkphoenix
do you remember lazy summer days?
the lemonade you always used to make.
the way the mountains shimmered in the haze.
the laughter of the kids out on the lake.
do you remember autumn afternoons?
the creaking of our rockers on the porch.
the games of chess we played, the mournful loons,
the graceful dance of moths around the torch.
do you remember icy winter nights?
the shutters closed against the weather's ire.
the cosy glow when we turned out the lights.
the love we made in blankets by the fire.
do you remember mornings in the spring?
the budding of new life; the valley bloomed.
the times we woke to hear the bluebirds sing.
the church a-buzz as services resumed.
now children play but i don't hear them laugh;
the empty rockers greet the haunting cry;
the hearth is cold, my heart is torn in half.
why did you leave, my love? why did you die?

That time of day
Golden eye of God
Gazing upon His creation
Glorious to see

That time of year - haiku
menacing armies
angry grey storm clouds advance
across summer skies

Literature
Sonnet to Distramutarkal
Darkness enshrouds the depths of your black soul.
Ice water flows throughout your hulking frame.
Sanity is, no more, part of your whole;
Terror surrounds the whisper of your name.
Rumours follow the trail of death you leave;
Anger and fear grow in your bloody wake.
Murder is all that your heart can conceive;
Useless to hide from the dread art you make.
Though demons haunt your nightmares and your days,
Angels lead you to your true destiny.
Rage at your mother fuels your psycho ways,
Killing is the only escape you see.
Alone and frightened in your darkest dreams,
Light shines only from your next victim's screams...

The Final Sunset of Skag the Slayer
This was a "quick" (12-hour) image I knocked together for a "Helmet"-themed challenge. It's also one of the very, very few Blender images I've produced without sitting and following a tutorial -- although turns out I actually learned a thing or two from those tutorials. Sometimes I struggle with inspiration, but I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw the theme of this particular challenge...
Loading...
  • Reading: Dragon's Claw
  • Watching: Tucker and Dale vs Evil
  • Playing: Half-Life (always) and RAGE
  • Eating: Risotto
  • Drinking: Corona (with lime, of course!)
Is this thing still on...?

So apparently it's been a day or two since my last journal entry.  I've been ... busy.  My latest endeavour has been an image I've been working on in Blender, and I just popped in to upload it...  Most of my digital art to date has been work in progress, or extracts from larger projects, and as such has gone into my scrapbook -- but this one is all my own work (albeit done for a competition) so it's gonna join my poetry 'n such in my gallery!

Yay... :-|

I know this reply has been a long (long) time coming, because I just don't hang out here any more, but yes, I did.

Why do you ask? :-)
