AtlantisOur ships float close under sunlit skies,
hovering above Atlantis.
We claimed the ocean miles as our own,
an underwater district which we would call home.
Suffocate with Neptune,
as heavens burst through violet haze.
Your gaze,
splits the nebula, infinite space,
and explosions in a faraway place.
And when the sun should close its eyes,
you'll sail afar.
To climb electric vines,
and lay in the arms of the storm.

Atlantis by aaronbyrnepoetry

Suggester: "Oceans and space were
never so sweet. In describing the
vastness in the two places we as
humans find inconceivable, this
writer has accurately demonstrated
the ability to find a home in love."

Honeythief. by sickicks

With a subtle metaphor and a
clever play on words, sickicks
leaves readers pondering the
definition of the key word--violated--in
a new and inspiring way.  Honeythief.
will put a buzz to your thoughts.

Dandelion's Lamentthe warm spring wind
gives me life
no one desires to defend;
they call me Weed,

sends shivers down my
stem; I can
thrive on the dream-fields
of children, who still
call me Flower.

Dandelion's Lament by SurrealCachinnation

As children, I imagine we all enjoyed
the nursery rhyme about dandelions
and "popping" their heads off at the
end of it.  Dandelion's Lament, by
SurrealCachinnation, is a unique
take on what a dandelion would
say if weeds could talk.

The Fox Bride by doughboycafe

Said the Suggester: "The characterization
in this story is very well done; it's almost
as if the characters are real people."

FrostbittenWinter is her favorite time of the year.
It's beautiful. Silver and blue dance around with one another in a waltz of freezing passion as snow and ice douse the land in a blanket of boreal glamour. Glass windowpanes become easels for falling snowflakes, frost etching into the smooth surfaces in intricate and unique patterns.
Winter has always been her favorite time of the year, and it always will be.
It is not because of Christmas--no, even though she loves the holiday, it is not what sparks her strong fondness for the star-colored blanketing across the land. Her infatuation with the snow and ice and everything cold has to do with something that most people don't truly believe in.
A boy.
A boy whom she met long ago.
She still remembers the day like it was yesterday. Running around in the forest, laughing and tasting the snowflakes as they fell down into her parted lips and melting immediately on her tongue. All bundled up as a precaution, even though the winter has always been kind to h

Frostbitten by lupus-astra

Although not a completely original idea,
"Frostbitten" presents a great snapshot
of a girl infatuated with winter, or more
specifically, a personification of winter.

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.
