Up to four works of an artist selected weekly by the admins.

This week's feature is:
:icona-wandering-man:A-Wandering-Man

The featured works are:
The Storm AwakesIncendiary arcs illuminate the dark folds
Of the ominous and brooding clouds
Which have blotted out the Sun.
Sheets of rain fall, like so many shards of broken glass.
The wind tears at the sea, rips the branches
From the shattered trees
The hair on one's arms and neck is raised;
Stands at attention - a sense of danger pervades.
Thunder roars across the landscape
And one must suppress the urge to run for shelter.
The ground shakes as the energy discharges
Instinct takes over, and one finds oneself inside - safe.
The windows rattle in their frames
And the storm has come to bear.
ExistenceDeprived of one's senses,
In the dark,
Silence.
No movement, nor wind,
Nor smell, nor taste.
Perception aborted.
Reaching out, finding nothing.
Is it not a terror beyond reckoning?
A sense of reason is useless
- Even, perhaps, cruel -
In the absence of the senses.
(Could emotion even exist?)
Even pain, feared as it is
Is infinitely preferable
To the void of unfeeling darkness
That barren Existence.

Lonely HeartWhen you're alone.
No one to talk too.
No one to tell you
what you need to hear.
No one to stop you from going back,
to thinking about the most important things,
Your fears; your most profound and powerful emotions;
your hopes and dreams.
You lose yourself.
And there's no one to find you.
No one.
No one at all.
What do you do?
Candles in the Night SkyFlames alight in the endless dark,
Fireflies a-buzzing in their dance,
A whisper carried on the subtle breeze...
"Take the chance."
The sky is torn asunder,
Lightning, cloud, and deafening thunder,
A shout rings through the strife,
"It is time to live your life!"
Rain assaults the fragile Earth,
One small life begins to ponder,
A Dreamer's voice, filled with mirth,
"Life is full of wonder!"
The Sun drifts away, begins to slowly set,
Clouds disperse and float on languid winds,
A meek man speaks his cacophonous mind,
"Humanity's potential, never to be met!"
The Candles in the Night Sky
Have all gone away now
Their bodies cold where they lie
We grieve for the loss of beauty.
For we will cry, together, aloud:
"We will die
For lack of Unity."

Name of Image MonstersDo you hear the screams at night?
The eerie laughter which will not cease
while our children beg for peace
upon their beds they fearfully wait
until the sun decides to sedate
the screams.
Do you see the shadows at night?
The frightful movement upon the wall
the ghastly mourners who rise and fall
they terrify whom ever they like
but hide when light decides to strike
the shadows.
Do you know the monsters at night?
The chilling ghouls with menacing eyes
whose faces can tell no lies
other than, "this won't hurt a bit"
then, we throw a match which is lit
the monsters.
  Gone are the horrifying screams,
  which sing of dripping blood
  Gone are the menacing shadows,
  which dance upon graves
  Gone are the terrible monsters,
  which party in the night
     Do you welcome the blazing fire at night?
     The vanquishing element which consumes
     leaving behind only make-shift tombs
     in their eternal

Name of Image Day of the DeadYou brought me
To my knees
The day we met
The darkest day
Of my life
Your sugar skull
Was full of spiders
Filling me with dread
Your heart
Was black and empty
A pit of despair
Just when you had
Marked me for death
He answered my prayers
And desperate offerings
Destroying you with flowers
Candles and holy water
Freeing me from you
And your kiss of death
But then his saintly mask
Fell away the morning after
Leaving me for dead
So now you and I
Are together again
In the afterlife
Dancing freely
To the noise of mortals
Who entertain us
Every day
Of the dead.

Name of Image Red nails and dead eyesI will crawl
across this checkered floor
into your arms.
I will paint my face
with dark eyes
and lips sewn shut.
I give you a fantasy
where I bow
in submission.
I am pale and gaunt,
made up like the dead
before I dominate you.
There is an energy
in your fear and my lust
that paints an apt picture
of the beast behind my make-up.
I will crawl 
on hands and knees
to an alter that reeks of blood.
I smile at your hallucination
of my gentle hands
and mouth.
Your pupils dilate
beneath my magic,
your will a puddle of goo.
I am fair skinned and innocent,
yearning for your touch,
in your mind.
There is such power
in my stare that it corrupts you.
Our world a charcoal drawing
stained in red.
I will crawl
until I taste you
behind my teeth.
I will drink you
until my scars
have disappeared.

Name of Image What Halloween is to me!Black cats and witches hats,
What is Halloween to you?
Jack-O-Lanterns with eyes a glow,
What is Halloween to you?
Witches flying high above,
Ghost outside your window.
Leaves crackle in the distance,
Someone lurks behind.
Spooky fog at your feet,
Trick-or-Treaters you may greet.
A Chill is in the air,
or will it run down your spine?
Beast and Goblins,
Masks or not?
Decorations, and Spiders Webs,
Strown both high and low.
So much mystery,
Darkness hides the trickery.
Candy corn,
and sweets a pleanty.
Scary mazes,
Will get you lost.
Wicked houses,
They could be Haunted.
Now that must be,
What Halloween is to me.

Congratulations to you all.

Name of Image The Death of SpringShe watched her dreams go down the drain,
Her shoulders could not hold the strain.
They are now gone, the tears that stain,
Lost in the rain, lost in the rain.
Her love, a small withering bud,
Picked, plucked, stomped, and drug through the mud,
was lost in the turbulent flood,
Rivers of blood, rivers of blood.
Pruned was her fate, a snipped gold string,
On her hand sat a cold, gold ring,
And now the birds, woefully, sing,
“The Death of Spring, the Death of Spring!”

Name of Image Seasons of the HeartWinter wind chills, pulse just beating,
Thunder storms and rain drops streaming.
Winter strangled hearts, cold seeping.
Moments fleeting, moments fleeting.
Spring flowers blooming, soft breeze blows,
Water's sweet kisses; dew-grass glows.
Hearts healing as shy sun beams flow.
We can all grow, we can all grow.
The sun's light grows with strength and flair,
Blinding, warming all in its glare.
Passionate hearts walking on air.
No time to care, no time to care.
Red leaves falling drift, slowing time,
Soft sun is setting, finishing its clime.
Love's heat lingers, withstanding time.
Sweet hearts still chime, sweet hearts still chime.

Name of Image Toilet Paper and Flu SeasonToilet Paper and Flu Season
10-8-14
“The toilet paper is a lie,”
Say tissues floating from on high.
Now is the time to say goodbye;
It’s time to die, it’s time to die.
Let’s blow your nose in dead of night
While angels watch your snotty plight.
The PC screen gives eerie light;
So fight the fight, so fight the fight.
You stay up late within your room
While tissues prophesy your doom
And the damned flu fills you with gloom;
There is no boom, there is no boom.
So now you lay you down to sleep,
You’re coughing hard and sniffing deep.
Head clouded as to sleep you creep;
Wake to the beep, wake to the beep.

Nice to see you are still around. Hope that you are well and, yes, it is sad the Nelson Mandela died as he was an iconic figure.
