These desolate dreamsSeashells and echoes
skip across the seas
whispering the pasts
of gilded farces;
there are many calls.
Skip across the seas.
Mirrors and sunrises,
the birds all take flight,
depart before night
before their dark light,
so as not to fight
seashells and echoes.
Gravel and diesels,
they scratch at the eyes,
concealing the lies,
bombarding their cries.
their livelihood dies.
Skip across the seas.

"These desolate dreams " by ozzla

The colorful imagery helps
the reader to understand
the message of the poem.

planetary perspectivedid you ever stare into the sun as she was falling behind the horizon
and realize
you're the one falling?
could you finally assimilate, during her spectacular dive,
the wonderous speed
at which you're moving?
did you ever walk barefoot by the roaring, receding ocean
and ponder in awe
the distant moon's attraction?
did you ever observe great orion plunge into a forest
and mourn
when the hunter didn't find his way home
but stands forever in cold space,
while we, in our na´vety, just keep going
and around

planetary perspective by raido-ehwaz

From the suggester:  This
beautiful piece combines cosmic
science with a sense of wonder.

DandelionsI remember,
When I was just a little kid
In spring,
I would pick dandelions.
My mom told me not to pick them
Because they were weeds.
"But mom," I would argue,
"Dandelions are flowers,
Not weeds!"
I remember
Not being able to comprehend
How something so pretty
Could be a bad thing.
They weren't hurting anyone.
Now, I wonder-
Who is more at fault?
For judging by looks
Or my mom,
For judging by labels.
But one thing I am sure of;
Neither of us
Gave dandelions
A fair chance.

Dandelions by myprettypictures

A simple poem with
a simple message.

Cries of an innocent by Laeneris

I had to read it twice to get it, but
once I did, it hit hard. Sometimes
apathy is the worst crime of all.

The Page of Promise: A Winter Solstice TaleIn the depths of a night that's about to begin
with the feeling of snow as it melts on your skin
and it covers the land with a dream so intense
that it returns us all to a child's innocence
And then what you'd thought lost and could never retrieve
is suddenly there to be found on Christmas Eve

-Trans-Siberian Orchestra
The sound of her boots breaking the snow is delicate and light, like meditated, unhurried piano notes. She walks gracefully between the pine trunks, their needles making a cover for falling snow above her head. Her face, a frozen petal of porcelain, eyes of crystalline frost, is framed by the hood of her white, fur-lined mantle. The air is still, the cold a pleasant hindrance, as Lumi is able to wander gloveless, touching each gigantic pine in thought. Each tree speaks to her in a unique way, telling of the earth and the sky, of what speaks the wind, what whisper the animals nuzzled against their roots, or perched among their branches. She hangs, on all of them a

Every image and change here
is striking, whether it's gentle or
bold. They contribute well to the
writer's fine storytelling and definitely
make this worth the time to read.

Prepared by: LadyofGaerdon
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.
