Poetry Challenge Week: Day 1

It`s a new month, and it calls for action. Oppurtunity has come to you, in the form of a virtual competition. A slam down, mono a mono, a fight to the death. What is so hard core, so terrifying, so jaw dropping that it casts fear into the hearts of many mere mortals? The most

Cicadas

The plague of the Summer is here. The soft whirring and copious amounts of exoskeleton coating the ground affirm that they have come. The plague, the menace, and the nuisance: cicadas. Lucky us, not only is it cicada season, but it is also the seven year ‘spike’ where a special breed of cicada which lays

Down By The Waterside

posted buhaypilipino chat Down by the riverside is a glowing green scale. A young boy, bored by his fishing endeavors, picked the scale up and twiddled it in his fingers. It was quite a shock as he felt his whole body twist and change, his memories endingĀ  even as his gills gulped oxygen from the

Moving Sideways

I`ve tried something crazy and ambitious. I have no idea if it will work at all, but I`m hoping it worked out. You see, in a burst of creative inspiration after a short hiatus I felt like trying to add a crossword puzzle on here. You know, that`s actually a twisty proposition. There are programs

Reflective Still Life

The great challenge of drawing reflective materials, of course, is representing the reflective qualities while also giving the piece some sense of separation from what is surrounding it. And cutting out the inevitable reflections of humans in the studio and the changing light also made things a little messy. Of course, that fact that I

This is the second in the Technology series of paintings I`m working on right now. I think I`ll add just a third and fourth, and then call it quits. The first installment has already been posted, and you can see it here. This 2nd work continues the theme of a bright colored background, and has

Roast `Em

S`mores There`s something about Summertime that seems to say campfire. Maybe because I`m not really likely to camp any other time of year, as I value the fact that I`ve lost none of my limbs to frostbite, or maybe because people really only take vacation time then, but camping and Summer go hand in hand.

Typesette

This is Entry 1 in a new series I`m making, with the theme of technology. You can also look at the second installment in the series, of which a third and fourth one is coming out as soon as the muse revisits me. Rather cute, isn`t it? I know you can`t really tell with the

When Life Gives You Lemons…

Yesterday evening, a frantic Zambini was scrambling to create a lovely post for you. In between visions of gumdrops were dancing and fawning fans, ready to praise my very pen. (Really, I dont think anyone would be that dramatic, and I think Id be a little scared if they were waxing lyrical over any post,

To Oblivion

  Plot You see, the thing is, though I love action movies, I tend to hate the whole dystopia style. I figure that I watch movies for fun, and a terrifying future really doesn`t seem all that cheerful. I`m not the kind of gal that needs that cathartic release- it actually tends to bum me
