Daily Literature Deviations Color Contest Results

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 3, 2013, 2:44 PM


COLORS CONTEST RESULTS


Update: The Colors Contest Results are Finally In!!!


OK, yes, it has been quite awhile since this contest ended.  There have complications outside the current DLD administration's control which lead to some of the delay - the rest of the time: procrastination.  :blush:  In any case, better late than never, right?

Anyway, here are the winners:



1st Place:

The color of betrayal by jamberry-song





2nd Place:

BarracudaI have heard mistaken minds
say if you offer her your hand,
Blue in kind will bring no harm.
I have come to tell you this is false.
Listen closely now, my friend:
Blue is sharper, longer, leaner,
than Red on Red’s best day.
She will take your albatross
and slit it open in the night.
Blue is dressed to a fine point:
silk sleeves and noble crest,
predator-sleek with azure-spine.
She dares and she is tempting, I admit,
but you have not known Blue as I.
You see,
Blue can cut.
She can sting.
She can weave and dance and cut again,
and when she has finished
she is deathly still.
Blue feels no remorse;
she won’t reflect as you or I.
She drops and flows
and darts and thrusts
and when you go to grasp her
she has slipped and sliced your palm.
Take heed, my anxious friend,
you are her prey of choice.
She hides within the sun.
You take her in, you think you’ve won,
but venomous and silent
she dissolves inside your depths,
and

Barracuda by Sigma-Echo-Seven




3rd Place:

S.A.D. by toxic-nebulae
