Wolf and LambBeckon the full moon,
Call out to spirits of past,
Where the white wolf sings…
The harvest moon breaks through the trees,
To a land protected by night seekers.
The silence broken by harmonious melodies,
Sung by the wolves- the midnight keepers.
The full moon breaks the night,
Ravens of mourning taking to flight.
Wolves howl to their lost,
Through the wind and the frost,
Where the world awaits twilight.
Midnight moon above,
Take away hunger of wolf,
Lest he betray sheep…
Violent storm across the sea,
Siren song which holds my fate,
Draws the end of the voyage to me,
To the shores for my greed and hate,
Where I shall wait for all eternity.
Look to the second star on the right,
Praying for hope to last through the night,
No more violent ocean swells,
To bring me to my hell,
But a ray cast from her heavenly light.
Ocean of flock swells,
As wolf hunts on devil's ground,
Dressed in sheep's clothing…
Cast rays of heavenly light,
Toll out the ancient church bell,
Forgive him for

"Wolf and Lamb " by DorianHarper

Suggester says: "A very well written
and powerful piece broken into stanzas
to tell multiple little stories, all starting
and ending with the same beauty."

Haiku III by tickersymbol

A beautiful haiku to
herald the coming of spring.

In barren hearts of fools I call my friendsIn barren hearts of fools I call my friends,
An unrich flower grows; a farmer's rose,
That blooms whichever way air traffic sends
This steerless seed, adrift without repose.
Their lands be arid, acres reft of life;
A dried up desert, nemesis to growth;
Still grows that poppy, overcome all strife
With enemies all other life does loathe.
And though the daffodils might mock its leaves,
The noble rose resent its nimble throne,
No haughty flower has its red outshone;
Cause while these bourgeois plants, uptight, tide well
Inside their wealthy master's garden cell,
All these will wither, wealthy care deprived.

In barren hearts of fools I call my friends by Filiuk

The extended metaphor of this
Italian sonnet blossoms into a
lovely message in the final stanza.

on wars and the galaxy by ersatz-moon

This short war story reads
like poetry, blending space
imagery with the hells of war
in ways that will surprise you.

Synesthesia     Water falls drip by drop from the tin roof and Tim gets a sense that time is slowing to a stop. Each speck takes its ten foot dive to earth so slowly that Tim finds it serene to watch, as though nature was jumping to her death. When a drop finally crashes against the concrete the sound explodes in a vivid blue in front of his eyes.
     His heart rams against his ribcage repeatedly, trying to break free. It is almost painful, but not quite, to feel it hammer away at his chest. With each barrage his heart makes his body shakes and he hears a rumble within himself. The growl is fierce and shoots wisps of red into his vision. The beating of his heart begins to dance in step with the water; the blues and reds collide before his eyes forming the beginnings of an image, though Tim could not make out what it was.
     He knows he can't put it off any longer; he turns to face his assailant. The man is taller than h

Synesthesia by AtrumMiles

An action-packed vignette
that colors all in a very
well-written and uncommon way.

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.
