WinterHer cold hands trace the lands spreading pallor;
In their wake, antique lace of crystal ice-
Scrimshaw tracery of pale frost flowers;
Tears a fickle flurry from fragile skies-
But bitter is her wintered breath the wind,
And ghostly the sound of its satin sighs;
Blue-veined deep the frozen lake of her skin;
Her voice a swansong of icicle lies-
Skeletal spine studded with evergreen-
The sheen of her shimmering white-wove veil
Crowned with holly bush and poinsettia leaf;
Her eyes drowning blue, her skin ghostly pale.

A veritable winter feast
of image, flow and rhythm.

acousticyour soul is an acoustic
black and white picture
never yielding to release
giving shadows a new taste
of elegance, quiescent
the tranquil luminescence
that can trap a heart
in the photographic emulsion
or celluloid undertow
of slow motion
just as flammable
as a subtle combustion
kindling a rustic tongue
to move a languid expulsion
ladened with sorrows
carried like crystal shards
in a humble sun catcher
hung above a familiar window
prizing inconsequential matter
into flecks of golden dust

Suggester says: "A breathless

with wonderful descriptive words."

fishing for hearts with lace and not nettingtake one - in which burned bread is beautiful
They're crumbs in the road, toast-speckles that spin and skirt and we
drive past, like we always do, the radio singing
white noise against my black humor and you say
you say I'm getting better, and I think no, I am better
I am better, I say and you say no
and I say
I'm fucking exemplary
and you ask who Exemplary is and I tell you it's me and I think
somewhere we got lost in the words
And I'm not all that keen on admitting to you that sure thing, dad,
I'm fucking myself
but mostly I'm just fucking myself o
fishing for hearts with lace and not netting by ~wish-sticks
An impending storm
and the proceeding torrent
of the human condition.

"Doctor?" I questioned uneasily. The figures and faces around me nodded, shifting around unsettlingly as if staying still was too much work for them
"I don't need a Doctor, I'm fine." I had no desire to see the Doctor. Even the title sent shivers down my spine.
"We know dear, but we were thinking that some people mature faster than others, and that maybe you should see the Doctor earlier," one of the figures said. I couldn't even see them, for I was seated in a hard chair that dug into my back while everyone else was crowed around me. Their like faces and similar statures all began to blur into one solid black surrounding of grey and more g
The Doctor by =Oilux
A fast-paced, gripping sci-fi thriller
about a dystopian world and a girl
who has an opportunity to learn
about the system that binds her.

Smoky Screen Sabitra loved Sanu, Sanu loved Sabitra, they loved each other. The school was made up of bricks and stones which were twice older than they, furniture was now cratered by termites, the wooden mullions of wooden windows were not all horizontal, the blackboard was cracked at places, the walls and benches were all scribbled with this + that, this loves that, and the metallic tin ─ rusted. But not a thing mattered to them, whoever entered in the class with whatever powered glasses and whatsoever they prattled, they didn’t care, because Sabitra loved Sanu, Sanu loved Sabitra, they loved each other. Sabitra, with her head on her pal
