  The Cello's LamentThey call me brute.
I'm permitted to chant,
   but they won't let me Sing.
They've confused non-agility for
        my belly enfolds the earth;
        my throat trills at the stars;
        my eyes embrace the cays
           of the sea.
I am an omnivore,
   yet they will only feed me leaves.

"The Cello's Lament" by HaveTales-WillTell

This wonderful poetic engendering of an instrument with human frailties,

such as suffering indignation from being kept in the shadows

of higher profile strings, is well orchestrated.

"I Want To Be Shaken" by RiseandBe

Such a universal concept, impeccably phrased, with formatting

that enlivens the words, allowing them to jump from their

lines straight into your consciousness.

Alikeand here's the miracle of life:
everything is so alike
doesn't matter if you're human or a tree
the rules apply to the entire being
i left my home
   and lost it all
we replaced your soil
   and changed your world
we both live,
  but we blossom no more.
December '09

"Alike" by bottle-in-the-sea

A simple yet profound fragment of thought, exploring

the deep similarities between all life. We are all

transplants in our own way, are we not?

"The Day We Left For Earth" by Tuttlebird

A sort of backwards space odyssey,

and an intriguing snippet of flash fiction.

Impossible ExistenceMine is an impossible existence.
Every day, I do the impossible. I get up, eat Cornflakes, go to work. I work in an office. It is quiet. I like that.
I walk through the park on my way home. The birds are singing. The boys are playing football between the trees. Brown, crackling leaves are thick underfoot.
When I get home, I kiss my warm, flustered wife as she hurries past me out the door. She is heading to her shift over at the hospital. She works the evening shift on Wednesdays. She does impossible things there.
The kids - Annie and Michael -  are playing in and out of the hall, chasing each other. The TV is on in the front room. Tom is chasing Jerry round and round the screen, much like Annie and Michael.
Annie is seven and wants to be a nurse. She wants to do impossible things, like her mother. She is small and bright and blonde and has her mother's radiant smile.
Michael is three. He is my impossible child. He has freckles and dimples and mousy brown hair. He is giggling

"Impossible Existence" by HintOfMagic

From the Suggester: "An uplifting piece

that makes you count your blessings."

Prepared by: SilverInkblot</p>

Daily Literature Deviations is a group that is dedicated to bringing literature to the forefront of the deviantART community. We attempt to accomplish this by daily featuring Literature artists from around the community that deserve the recognition, but are not getting it.

Each day we will feature 5 deviations from the Literature categories in a News Article. In order to support the artists that we feature, we ask that you :+fav: the news article as well as check out the individual pieces. We understand that each day you may not be able to check out each and every one of the pieces. We just ask that you make an attempt to help support the growing Literature community and these artists.

Agreed on quote; the only point of FB is to get more social reception.
