YogaShe goes to sleep late.
She sits alone,
Listening to ambient-drone
In her midnight-blue room.
The desk lamp is a small star
In the corner of her dark universe.
She searches Wikipedia
For shades of blue.
She falls in love with
Celeste, cornflower, cyan,
Electric, Indigo, Iris, Maya,
Powder, Sky, Tiffany and Turquoise.
Awe-stricken by their
Surreal quality
And the vacuum it creates
In her solar plexus.
She unfolds like a flower.
She imagines herself opening up,
A bouquet of dreams:
Fragile, alive,
Also like a fluffy, white lamb
Beneath a beautifully crafted
And bejewelled sacrificial dagger.
In her mind she pinches
The petals of a thousand sherbet-coloured blooms,
Their biology presses back.
They do not bruise.
“What kind of
Do they practice?”
She wakes up late.

Yoga by sherbetblooms

Suggester: A peaceful, spiritual
piece of poetry. A lovely read.

I, Tito Jacobin, 16, Now Begin My Life    After 16 years of sustaining myself entirely with coffee and biscuits and slowly chewing away every eraser from every pencil I own and then—when this supply was exhausted—chewing down all ten of my fingernails, I, Tito Jacobin, have got one thing figured out: good things don’t happen to me. I will never enter an Ivy League college, I will never buy Mom a proper house, and I will never miraculously acquire the one ring to rule them all. No, poor little Tito is destined to die in these gray slab streets like a scrawny, diseased pigeon, pitiful and alone.
    So it’s to be expected that when Vivian Andromeda walks straight out of the clouds and into my life and smiles at me, smiles at me (except it’s probably just out of politeness, might even be a smirk, and anyways there’s no reason to get my hopes up because from what I’ve seen in the halls Vivian Andromeda would even smile at a rabid dog) I

A cute, humorous
coming-of-age love story.

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.
