Literature (Gamingstever Made)
« on: October 21, 2008, 03:59:24 pm »
I couldn't find a thread for short stories, novellas, and poetry by the forum goers here. So, I figured I'd make one, as it is certainly art. I guess since I made this I ought to post something. How bout a quick sonnet?


The scent of rot stings the nostrils,
The ground gives way under my boots,
The once live logs brim with skittering beetles.
It almost seems unworthy of tributes.

My machete dances through the vines,
Like a ballerina across her stage.
All this vegetation hostile, covered in spines.
My imagination is still not assuaged.

Still I swing and hack into this deep bush.
Imagining what wonder I might find next.
On and on I push,
And finally I see this place in it’s true context.

The beauty of the swamp, is not one of sight,
But one of curiosity’s rich delight.

Kings 2:23-24 --- The Holy Bible
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.
