and overuser of the
Front Page Picks
- Devour By Jennifer Lyons.
- Midnight Sun By Kyle Parrish.
Both submitted by Kirk, Bleeder-Keeper.
I was going over poems I had saved from a poetry class I took in college.
I couldn't get permission to post the first, but I've kept up a friendship with
the author of the second (who also wrote as it happens on the Blender "Poems and Sonnets" page)
- 11.38am By deevaa.
A study in time.
- Erotic Imagining/Waterfall
Poetry by Galadrial, painting by deevaa.
A collaboration. Besides the fact that these are both excellent works on their
own, I like the way they play off of each other
- Sweet Dreams
By Tat2dAngel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Tat2dAngel is a new contributor to the Blender Board
- reunion d'amour
The weather almost becomes a person in this one.

Guppy is always a surprise.

- through the streets of anywhere
By Charles Bukowski.
Submitted by Misti Velvet Rainwater.
from Play the Piano Drunk Like a Percussion Instrument Until the Fingers Begin to Bleed a Bit
- Translucent Gold
By Misti Velvet Rainwater.
Misit's often very earthy in her writing; this work strives to transcend.
- Tales of Brave Ulysses
By Eric Clapton.
Submitted by Megs.
I think the ending of this work may have been cut off, but it still
works pretty well. Plus, I'm a sucker for the name "Veronica". (With or
without a K)
- The Moon can not be Stolen
By Niya (email@example.com).
As much as anything else I adore the title.
- From His Eyes
- Affair in my Mind
Two by Megs. The first is a work of longing, the second goes to show that along with the name "veronica" and titles involving the cosmos, I'm a sucker for
- Meeting Emily
By Ken Gausefirstname.lastname@example.org.
A longer prose piece. I think it could use some pruning, but it still
say some interesting things.
Submitted by email@example.com.
A true-to-life work.
- Letter to a Lover
Toklas writes as... poetically (I think is the only correct word) as always.
These poems make writing look effortless (which is quite different from
poetry that looks like little effort went into it).
