Yes, I've gone and done it again! As if I'm not busy enough with A Call to Conversation and dA Roadtrip articles, I'm bringing you ANOTHER one! With the launch of the "Undiscovered" browsing option, there are a TON of awesome artworks I've been finding and admiring, and I just have to share them with you guys.
I WILL be taking suggestions for this series, as well, so if you discover something while browsing the bowels of dA that you think needs to be shared, please send me ( =TwilightPoetess ) a note titled Undiscovered Gems.
Undiscovered Gems (25)
today's theme: abstract realities
orionto remember your name
a rib of stars and heartwood,
shaped in the echo
of a careless sky. earthbound, i
am settling into the silky mists
before sleep, listening for the sound
of the river in you
dragging its heavy body
to the sea.
to have forgotten the whole of it
and remembered pieces. your hands over me
in a numerology
of habit, the arc and fall
like punctuation in a phrase.
those moments i felt the shape
of the letters underneath, hydrogen
and bone, promises branded
in dark. the phantom chase
that binds you. the poison carrying
to know you then,
already strung with ache and sinew
to the swinging axis of the sky,
fractured godhead sheathed
in wounds. and i,
a holy fool,
still writing prayers to sunken mattresses,
wilted gardens, the cosmic pause
of your longing on mine--
before i sleep again
in this body full of ghosts
like an abandoned temple.
this cobwebbed vacancy,
oh, my wandering hunter.
drowned compass bent
in the shape of artillery. gone again
I hope you found something here to fall in love with and admire! Please show your support by ing or commenting on these beautiful pieces--and don't forget, I'm taking suggestions for pieces to feature in the future!
