The TruthWe lie in wait and I say, "He's
as determined as a
child being eaten away by cancer, Swearing that she'll cure herself
one
Blackened cell at a time."
Though as we spoke his frailty was being swallowed
whole by a bed of wrongs, made servant to
the things he wished to Change, Transform, into
both the common and the beautiful
as one strong of heart does,
but with all the anger and resolution of one helpless to do so--
"But when the enemy is already inside, throwing fits of
Reckless destruction like
a human-animal (refined/Confined by its thoughts)..."
They are
(and he was)
Prodded into the fight, and in the face of death
he
bowed into
a state of disregard, without care for kith, Kin,
or any other living being--
we were cast aside as he
faced each minute as one would
a hurricane, battling to just stay
Afloat.
The child fights, each five
tiny fingers clinging tight to each minute, second
allowed--
listening to the doctors guessing
at the thousands of cancerous cells
left alive after the the
   White Winter SpiritsWe had forgotten long ago. All of our precious memories had been wrapped meticulously inside our red scarves and animal skin coats, free from the mind but kept close to skin for safekeeping. Like loved children bundled in winter fabric, we are fragile inside our layered past; like lost children forgotten by all we know, we wander aimlessly. Our minds are tainted with the constant ache of homesickness- the stars blazing overhead through the flurry of snow never stops urging us onwards, to seek the stars we remember from home.
In silence, our pack travels. The snow, our shroud, makes no noise as we step upon its banks; the forest, dead from the sting of winter, voices no protests as we wander in its depths; the pack, its individual persons scattered, fights the relentless wind to reach our unattainable goal.
Our ethereal bodies are unable to be touched by the world in which we once lived. Our boots leave no tracks in the snow, nor does our heaving breath leave fog in the air. The memorie

Congratulations to everyone for the amazing work! I really really love these contests, it's always great to see what people come up with for the theme (although also always really hard to choose who to vote for!)

I am a compulsive drawer, I love to have a pencil in my hand and a blank sheet of paper, and watch things appear (on the bus, in my lectures, at 3am when I should be asleep...). I really like to be able to use art to raise awareness of human rights issues, and I love illustrating stories.

Thanks for dropping by!

Thanks so much Athina! It looks like I missed your birthday the day before too - happy birthday to you as well! (actually, I will go and write it on your wall, it's always more fun to have birthday messages where you can go back to them :) )
