Taut by beeinthebottle

Lisa neatly juxtaposes clever wordplay
with the reality of being an introvert in
this quick-paced, witty poem.

Windmilli am raw;
waiting for the skillet
me though the windmill
be careful not to
me through the windmill
paint on me, a target:
paint on me,
a smiling face
i am burnt;
waiting for the sunset
me through the windmill
be very careful not to
me through the windmill
lips like morphine
words flow like ipecac
until you come back
lips like morphine
wordless chatter
against your scattered
love is a windmill
for this reason, i slow our blades
let us

Windmill by WillSchenck

Suggester: "i've loved this poem for
a long while now and really think it deserves
more attention. the very first stanza is such
a striking and unique image that instantly takes
my breath away, and the rhythm is so melodic it
just lulls me through the poem. it's simplistically
and beautifully written, and permeated with passion.

maybe the limbs of the house plants will
pave your terrene and turning gaze.
oh dear
votre sentiment est tardive et vil et pÔle.

mansuetude and sentiment. by nighttimebeautiful

The moodiness of the poem is counterbalanced
by the almost clinical nature of the diction -
a mysterious sort of precision that intrigues.

On Dead Leaves and Other Valuable Things by FuzzyHoser

This meditation on faith, family, and the way
tradition connects us all is short but powerful.

I buildOne day, something changed.
I had always been able to hear the sound of the servomotors beneath my skin; I had always been able to feel the shape and temperature of the deck rail beneath the sensors on my fingertips. I had always been able to infer, by vibration and heat, where in a given space a supervisor might be.
I had always known, but now I knew.
Something had been building.
Things build. The sciences build. Mathematics builds, calculus on algebra on arithmetic. Physics builds on mathematics. Chemistry builds on physics, biology builds on chemistry, psychology builds on biology.
The sciences build, becoming more diffuse as they do, becoming less scientific and more human, as though humanity and hard fact lie on two ends of a continuum, incompatible, disparate.
I built.
Or rather, she built me.
She built on mathematics, on engineering, on neurochemistry, on the auxin-influenced way that plants' leaves develop on their stems. The first supervisor took a series of raw materia

I Build by consolecadet

A wonderful sci-fi vignette by a talented writer.
Suggester says: Though this subject has been covered
before, I've never seen it covered better.

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.
