Hold your Peace

Got some new stuff to bore those few readers.

A new song:
Summers nearly half way through
And rarely with content you grew.
Instead the wasted days are fond
Only of those morning songs

Which intoxicate and blur the mind
But greater are the dreams that find
Your way in words which, awful still
Create illusions of life fulfill’d
So productive, hopeful too
The weeks you spend will find you through
The many worded vows and tongues
Those speak to you across and from
Forever less, and ever more
The countless tunes you heard adorn
The empty mind you handle from
And darker thoughts that never sum

To hopelessness, outright and bleak

You listen to the ceiling creak
For you’re awake and they untrue
Summer’s nearly halfway through.

something bad:
hardship’s year His dragging eyelids rested listlessly beneath his lining brow. Average years could not account for age garnered through hardship. Graying hair left itself in hopeless fringes along the bolder outline of his rueful scalp. The man frowned as his less than perfect appearance crossed his mind, and the murky pools passing beneath his feet. He was handsome once. Yes, with a great deal of success and kindly promises for more. “But things change,” croaked the repulsive image below him. The longest of his years had come to pass. And though infancy's eon is beautiful, his birth year’s novelty was never again. Instead, he was left a year of hardship, whose own novelty was bitter in dying light of his previous life. No dried call for help would aid him now. “Nor will anything for that matter.” A thousand reminders now spoke below him in the rain swept street. “If Hardship’s year has any lesson, futile are my empty words.

Maybe I should write mystery novels.

my scanner has kicked the bucket, I think. Which is sad, I have so much stuff I'd like to upload.
I'm nearly finished with Volume 3. What a run it's been!
Other than that, nothing too new on my end save the same ol' artistic pursuit.
I received full scores on my AP 2d portfolio though, which is encouraging. So many other lovely individuals from the 2008 CSSSA animation department received full scores as well.
And to think today marked an entire year since I first stepped inside the palace. Miss you guys.

I've been reading quite a bit of fantasy as of late, too. I enjoy a good tale or two. But I understand why Tolkien is so revered! He paints such lush pictures in your head, with his fascination of myth, geography and botany. It'd be neat to do a series of drawings based on the world that he so masterfully brings to life.
