CLOSED!
Spring is almost here, for those of us in the northern hemisphere!  The cycle of life is turning again, and that means baby animals, fresh shoots, and budding trees.  The world up here seems to be awakening! :heart:
Of course, those of you in the southern hemisphere have beauty and a part of the life cycle, too!  Leaves are falling from trees, and animals are prepping for their winter hibernation.   Unless of course you live in a subtropical or tropical region, like Vocable.  Lucky so and so! ;)
I'd like to present a contest.  Write 1500 to 3000 words for me, using the themes AWAKENING or ASLEEPENING however you'd like! Sun 
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.
THE RULES:
The theme is either Awakening or Asleepening.  Use one however you like, but don't try to use both!Minimum word count is 1500.  Maximum is 3000.  Put word count

Literature
Yellow and Blue
You may say “I wish everyday was yellow like that”
as your eyes drift into cloudless skies
that bathe in the warm summer breeze
like a giant would-be sponge of air.
But I must say “I disagree”
for if every day was warm with yellow air--
I could never remark how the blue rainfall,
in a murky, choppy, yet peaceful sort of way,
holds a likeness to the rare, flesh-colored tear drops
that pour down your cheeks into endless streams of blue.
and the latter, I think,
Is much more beautiful.

In Truth
Love...
I supply it fervently
Though you may never replenish my store
It matters not.
My quantity is boundless...infinitesimal
Though you may have no need for it
Every particle of my being
Longs to cast it out
Though you may reject it cold-heartedly
My love is an anchor
An ever-burning beacon
No gusty winds...no sneering tempest
Could ever extinguish it
Though you doubt and abandon
My love is piercing...poignant
And inescapable truth
Though you may flee
To the most fearsome...war-torched wastelands
I will venture after you
Destiny will urge me onward
Until I bring you safely home
Though you may never accept love
I will devotedly surrender
Timeless as teeming waves yielding to the shore
Though seducing darkness
May tinge your lucid soul
Love will ceremoniously purify
In truth,
All of this I will give again
And when there is nothing left
My love will remain.

Literature
Shut Your Eyes
Shut your eyes,
perhaps doors will open
and I'll be united with
you
Keep them closed,
there's no appeal
beyond those lids,
restraining me from
you
You don't belong there,
and they don't belong here
and where we merge
exists beneath the ambiance
of you
But you can't   "exist"
convicted of their negligence,
and I'm afraid they have
some rationale at their midst
when they labeled you inconceivable,
and I labeled you a possibility

Literature
before last night leaves
[no surprises:]
brain of a child, fluid
and sloshing, creating
the colors and the
movement like water
music in air, wind behind
glass, swerves, lost
[how to disappear completely:]
just a lilt in the tune,
oboe sways to the front
while fifteen floors nearer
to the moon, burglars fled
in red light, left shadows lonely
[reckoner:]
skeleton in the arboretum,
grass still reaching around
each rib, squeezing in
the soft space between
vertebrae, binding limbs
from dead thrashing, joyful
[i will:]
a song comes on,
feet are wax, floating
in outer space, swirling
in stars (so like eyes),
the first piece to go
[street spirit (fade out):]
a fly sparsely traffics
the chair, follows
age lines like paths,
ancient stones winding
to nowhere, speaking
only to birds and planes

Literature
Mirror-
The mirror in my window
Falters with my avid gaze
An arms length away
Live or stay
As my mind spins into place
I walk paths just to meet
My other half...half way
Through the storm
Barely are we among streams
Mirror to mirror
Side to side

The Hacker's Legacy
[T]he [H]acker's [L]egacy.
[PROLOGUE: RAYNO] [07-23-2080]
I've always known that hacking was my prodigy, my legacy. From the first day I'd touched a computer, I had wanted to be legendary, like the Legion of Doom, or Administration,  hacker groups in the past, or Commander 31337,  one of the today's most amazing Phreaks.
I started as a Phreak, hacking into pay phone lines around town. I live in a big city, there were many of them, and since the big cell crash of 2036, everybody needed pay phones until their beloved cell phones were back up. So finding one was easy, but finding one that was vacant unfortunately wasn't. Phreaking was easy, cheap, and yet, so satisfying.
After mastering the art of Phreaking, disrupting a couple phone calls, collecting a large amount of useful information and collecting some money, I decided it was time to buy a decent computer. Alienware was my first choice, but was much too expensive, but so godly, so I went into search-mode, scowerin

The Bard's Tale
I suppose you have heard all my stories before, or at least, the ones I am known for.
What do I mean by that? Well, noone ever tells all their stories. There must always be another tale, such is the way of things. I wouldn't be much of a bard if I had nothing to tell of.
If you must insist, then I shall impart unto you who care to listen, a story from my youth.
When I had spent my seventh year of travelling the lands beyond my humble home, I cme to a place known far and wide as Thurin. It was quite different to the empty, crumbling weed strewn home for whispering winds and small black lizards that it is known for today. It was a vibrant and thriving place. A merchant town. A friendly and hospitable place with decent, upstanding folk. Indeed, I would often pass through it as I made much wealth there. Though, oddle enough, I would rarely leave with much more than that with which I had entered.
But that did not bother me, I was young, I owned my own horse, the same one that accompanies me

Literature
For the Encounters I Never Had
I released my regrets like a million balloons
chasing the sky with their bright round bodies --
wingless martyrs caught each tiny breath of air
and soared,
a moment of epiphany
when your rubbery skin punctures
and the soul escapes.
There is no element light enough to lift me away,
no instrument to sever the strings that earth
my tiny anklets --
I sway with the seasons
as if I am surrounded by an ocean,
unable to tread water fast enough to run,
nor find the reach to break the surface
where those regrets float momentarily,
winking in the sunlight before they coast away,
waiting for my realisation --
they pollute my conscience
until I am ready to let them leave.
I blow watery kisses as I watch them fly --
tiny polka dots dodging clouds,
out of sight.

Scars cannot tell lies

Reminisce what's worth a thousand lives

Apparently, I need to try to pay more attention!  ^^;

I apologize to all those who have recently attempted to do anything here in the past two years. :cry:


Apparently, I need some more helpers! Please send a note to me :iconbrinckmyster: if you are interested in helping out. I will TRY to be more attentive. However, I definitely can't do this by myself and my co-founder hasn't been on dA in even longer than I have! Let me know if you are interested in helping me out with submissions or other things that might get us going again.

One again, my apologies for being absent for quite so long!

Hello there!
My name is Tanbird, and I am also a writer. I have written my original story: “Valley of the Dahlias”. I wish I can join this group, and add my story to it.

Feel free to check out “Valley of the Dahlias”

If I asked you to read a free book, would you give me a reasonable review? Let me know where I could improve? This is the first book I've ever published and I'd like the assistance from some more seasoned writers to improve future work.

Hi! Would I be allowed to post a journal on the group, just in one of the writing folders? I'm thinking of doing short story commissions, and I'd like to see what people think of the proposed prices.

Yeah that would be fine, I will create a folder called 'Commission requests' to accommodate this idea.
