I have been out of country for a while, so this feature is rather late. has already announced a new contest you can find here [link]
But this is the promised feature for the INSANITY contest - find all the details here:
Insanity Contest WinnersWe have received 33 entries - which is the top record in our contests so far, way more than our previous top, which was 18 entries. I am really happy to see that. Including me, 50 people voted - and that's almost twice as many as on our previous contest, awesome. But anyway, the votes have been counted and the winners have been hunted down - let's take a look at them.
Our 1st place winner is *Asfodelo with his El Sonambulo - 37 points.
The second place belongs to Sleep Deprivation by *erinclaireb - 23 points.
*SandraHultsved has received 21 points for her Delirium
Entries have been of highest quality, so the winners presented are only a small selection of superb artists; browsing the contestants' galleries is highly recommended!
So here we go:
Lithium A single trickling rain drop
Like gossamer silk strands
Gliding along my third eye
Whispers wind's secret caress
I exhale. Lungs releasing-
Pressing translucent memories;
Fragment of a fragment
As water kisses rose petal,
Drifting down stream's curtain
Pretty little curtain.
Where the wizard lies.
Raw Hailed as the weeper
that cries in your stead
Those Albatross claws ruptured my redd
Gone is my hollow
of prickly twine
BirdcageNothing ever happens the way you read in the history books. In war there are never two armies, there is only a field of men. Never a number of dead; but individual lives snuffed out. That is what the subject of history is, years shelved and decimalized. Birth and death, graphed to the simplicity of lines. Great wars a footnote to the next great war. The achievements of men and women plotted out against the bookmark of day, month and year.
And somewhere amongst this, my mother breathed. Somewhere danced in now long-closed nightclubs, laughed at jokes told by a younger version of my Father. And then the unpin-able moment she fell in love with
My congratulations to all the winners! May the Springtime come at last; and may you have a great time filled with creativity and inspiration!
