HurricaneIn time we feel the same rolling heatHurricane by `StJoan
waves and tropical disturbance
builds over warm water
swirling mass of vapor and energy.
The mercury rises and falls with it
our breath sighs and stress,
fingers gripping into plywood, wobbles
stalls and charges forward.
The memories say we should leave.
HalcyonI must not smile so muchHalcyon by `StJoan
when the sky is the color of decaying
snow without the crisp cold
to hold me hostage in reality.
They think it strange
for lips to be swollen
glowing pink and pretty
up turned despite the clamoring
rush, hurry, faster, farther
falling around me.
It should fade, vanish in the flux,
yet even as I bite the curve of my lips,
it will not yield.
Dew in the DeltaWe wish for hope in bluesDew in the Delta by `StJoan
or a cool breeze,
to coax the drips but
sweat clings to the curves
beneath moans a slow beating heart.
Mississippi Jar FliesThe air is thick and warm in the Delta.Mississippi Jar Flies by `StJoan
It oozes down our lungs
as we sink down on to the levee
watching rice fields begin to shimmer.
A lacy wing of orange light
flutters on violet and trilling song.
And the dragonflies
dart and dance as little emeralds
to the tempo of twilight.

when the hand on the clock
struggles to move--
there is thunder.
Faded orange land clashes
with man made green.
Thunder comes again--
Gods heart beating over a desert.
Water vapor grabs dust and begs
to be pitched down and made into earth.
When it rains the road steams under the sun--
blacktop turns to oil slick.
And I struggle
to say something
that hasnt been said before.
Celebrity Egg Heads Contest 2008 A Smashing Contest!Celebrity Egg Heads Contest 2008 by $fourteenthstar
Let's not beat about the bush, I know you are all scrambling for some attention, but -- this is quite simply the most eggsellent contest on right now on deviantART. Which is more can be said for the puns I just used!
It's quite simple really. In good olde fashioned pre-interwebz tradition, we want you to decorate a boiled egg to represent a celebrity. For the purposes of this contest, celebrity will be defined as the following;
Someone "well known" from deviantART, e.g. an Admin, or a senior, or a popular community member. (Not your Auntie Babs who signed up last week then disappeared after downloading a wallpaper.)
Someone from the media, e.g. a tv presenter, a movie or tv star.
A cartoon character.
You will need the following;
Hard boiled eggs. As many as you want.
Pens, paints, stuff to stick things on to the eggs with, THINGS! Let your imagination run wild.
A camera. Does
Arthur C. Clarke Dead At 90Fans of science fiction literature (or even cinema) should already be familiar with the name of Arthur C. Clarke. After all, this is the man who gave 2001: A Space Odyssey and all its successors to the world.Arthur C. Clarke Dead At 90 by °dygel
Clarke passed away today, 19 March 2008, at the age of 90.
Clarke was the unlikely oracle in the science world. He's credited with dreaming up the geostationary satellite (the kind that delivers satellite television or radio to us). He's given us Clarke's three rules of scientific prediction:
1.) When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
2.) The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
3.) Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
The third and final of these rules has been quoted and requoted endlessly.
Clarke was an author with few peers. The list o
Great Novelists on deviantArt - Vol. 2In my last news article, I highlighted five of my favorite novelists who call deviantArt their home. Now, I'm back with five more for you to take a peek at, read a little bit from, and offer warm comments and constructive criticisms to. (If the author calls for it, that is. More on that later.)Great Novelists on deviantArt - Vol. 2 by *WriterOfStuff
Here are five more writers I keep an eye on myself. Know of another novelist that deserves the limelight? Then note me with their name or comment down below and I'll take a look. It doesn't have to be fantasy lit. I just happen to be more familiar with that world at the moment.
When I was picking five writers from my last batch, it was painful to save her for this volume, because her story Into the Moonlight is such a cute, delightful tale. The on-going story of vampire Erin and werewolf Simon, if you're a fan of Stephanie Meyer then you'll definitely appreciate this winsome tale.
