Daily Writing Part 118. Story of Poems Part 61

Random words of the day: Bin. Spar.

Huzzah! It’s an actual post again! For a fair part of the past week I’ve not been feeling well. I won’t bother you with the details (perhaps some other time ^_~), but in short I was in a state of feeling, blegh (similar to bleh, but different), which went on and off and on again in an unpredictable fashion. As a result the things I wanted and/or needed to do slowed down considerably, or did not happen at all. Thankfully I’ve been feeling a lot better since yesterday, actually got eager to get dedicate myself to, well, all kinds of things with full vigour! Working on my Arabic, cooking actual food again, planning to get back into music, picking up where I left with painting, exercising, working more actively towards my writing/publishing goals… I’ve taken the blegh bringing me down and turned it into a motivator to work on myself and finally do those things I’ve been wanting to do for some time now! And I’ve actually managed to at least make a start on quite a lot of those things! So much even I’ve been feeling rather tired today. Not too tired to work on my weekly writing wonder, though. I vanquished the blegh just in time to get the next installment of The Artist’s Tale done! Huzzah! Let us continue, then, and see where the artist, the gull, the toys and the scorpions will bring us today! ^_^


The Artist’s Tale. Chapter 4
Meanwhile near the chapel’s entrance
Lied the pieces of its gate
A charred trail shaped just like a runway
Ran for many meters straight

At the trail’s end rose a tall spiked ridge
Where the giant gull was seated
Below, among the capsicums
Lied its enemies, defeated

Like the needle of a compass
The bird’s head then turned North
Where, near a cabin, from a bush
Five creatures scuttled forth

There appeared without a sign
Four scorpions, fleet of foot
And a fifth on massive wheels
Emitting dark black soot

No time to spare!” one of them called
And warily looked ’round
Then placed the bin within its claws
Before it on the ground

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
