Literature
Mojave
I love the desert more than the city
Yucca and pinyon mean more to me than all the steel and glass
Show me the cacti
Let me smell the maize
It's where my grandparents retired
In that magic oasis
But my true love is the sand and wind-weathered stone
I'll trade the Flamingo
MGM
Ceaser
Circus Circus
Treasure Island, and everything else
If only you'll let me breathe the dry, hot air as I get my feet soaked in the crystal water
If you smell colitas, you've travelled too far west
But
If you see rattlers with diamonds
Coyotes
Dust devils
The Grand Canyon
Should you stumble upon the forgotten pueblos and notice people speak more and more of that sexy Spanish
Then you are in my paradise
Where the rain blesses things sparingly
Because even though it's old people
Are long gone
Their purity still remains
In every grain of dirt and sand
They're singing in the stars

Literature
Creation
What if I were to close my eyes
And dream of he things I've seen?
Would my world be any better
Than it's inspiration?
What if I were to dream in colors
No one can create?
Would that make my fantasy more real?
My world is fueled by half-songs
From all around me.
Snippets of magic and majesty
Directed by a baton.
See the world in green and blue...
I see the world for what it is
And what others have made of it.
White, yellow, blue, black...
These are the old colors.
I give a little girl an origami hat
In the hopes that she'll cease her tantrum
And watch her Zen-like confusion
As she tries to figure out how I did it.
I buy a compact mirror for a trip
I may never take to Ireland
In the hope that I might find a faerie ring
And see who made it.
I stand in awe
At cathedrals
And temples,
Recognizing icons
And why they are holy.
The vaulted ceiling humbles
As you thank Roman artists
For being such shameless copy-cats.
Caligula had a horse he loved,
But Brain says he was "no Boy Scout".

Literature
Figmental
Alarm clock ringing
Turning it off
There it is
Sitting against the wall
Along the wall
I've stopped being scared
I'm just waiting
Waiting for the day it takes me
Takes me away
Shadow man
Shadow man
Gonna take me
To his land
Never to return again
Maybe he can be my friend
Go to school and
He follows me there
Tall as a tree
Long as a shadow
Deep as darkness
Smile like glass
No one sees him
Teachers think I'm lying
Doctor gives me pills
He just gets closer
More real
Shadow man
Shadow man
Gonna take me
To his land
Never to return again
Will you be my friend
Nighttime come
He come close
Smiles big
Takes my hand
Mama scream
When she see me gone
Sorry mama
Gone away
Gone far away
Gone
Gone
Gone

Literature
Kind Esser
It was a  fairly large dragon, so she kept her distance at first. Most only got close to wild dragons in order to try and tame them, but she wasn't that kind of person. She just wanted to feed the little guy. It was just under ten feet long, from what she could tell. Defintiely not a local. It had all kinds of spines like there were trees growing out of it's back and it seemed content to nibble on tree leaves. It would stretch it's body out and claw on the trunk of the tree until it got to the lower branches and repeat the motions several times. Poor thing… One of the first things she noticed was it's limp.
Taking a deep breath, she wound her way through the tangled roots of the trees surrounding the small clearing. The dragon was chasing a rabbit around. The little creature looked so helpless as it ran back and forth only to find its way blocked by teethy jaws or a large tail. It managed to escape in time, and after she could no longer hear the small animal running for

Literature
Transliteration
A little girl pretended to die.
She wanted to be alone to rest her eyes.
Her heart, standing still, filled the doctor with dread.
With a heavy heart,  he declared her dead.
She was buried so sweetly under cold, wet sand
With a little music box in her hand.

Though I am primarilly a writer, I am not above indulging in things like sketching and photography. As time moves forward, you'll be seeing more images peppered in with the literature, several of which shall be put up for critiquing and/or being made into a print.

From The X-Files, "Chinga":

Mulder: Maybe you don't know what you're looking for.

Scully: Like evidence of conjury or the black arts or shamanism, divination, Wicca or any kind of pagan or neo-pagan practice. Charms, cards, familiars, bloodstones, or hex signs or any of the ritual tableaux associated with the occult, Santeria, Voudoun, Macumba, or any high or low magic?

Mulder: Scully?

Scully: Yes?

Mulder: Marry me.

Scully: I was hoping for something a little more helpful.

Then my friend's wiry arms were round me, and he was leading me to a chair.

"You're not hurt, Watson? For God's sake, say that you are not hurt!"

It was worth a wound — it was worth many wounds — to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.

His face set like flint as he glared at our prisoner, who was sitting up with a dazed face. "By the Lord, it is as well for you. If you had killed Watson, you would not have got out of this room alive."

— John Watson in the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of the Three Garridebs

Colors! Who doesn't love em'? As my teacher used to say: "The human eye is a slut for color!"

SHERLOCK HOLMES—his limits.
1. Knowledge of Literature.—Nil.
2. Philosophy.—Nil.
3. Astronomy.—Nil.
4. Politics.—Feeble.
5. Botany.—Variable. Well up in belladonna,
opium, and poisons generally.
Knows nothing of practical gardening.
6. Geology.—Practical, but limited.
Tells at a glance different soils
from each other. After walks has
shown me splashes upon his trousers,
and told me by their colour and
consistence in what part of London
he had received them.
7. Chemistry.—Profound.
8. Anatomy.—Accurate, but unsystematic.
9. Sensational Literature.—Immense. He appears
to know every detail of every horror
perpetrated in the century.
10. Plays the violin well.
11. Is an expert singlestick player, boxer, and swordsman.
12. Has a good practical knowledge of British law.

When I had got so far in my list I threw it into the fire in despair. "If I can only find what the fellow is driving at by reconciling all these accomplishments, and discovering a calling which needs them all," I said to myself, "I may as well give up the attempt at once."

- A Study in Scarlet, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

From The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes:

Holmes: [after he learns Madame Petrova wants him to impregnate her] This is all very flattering, but surely there are other men, better men.
Nikolai Rogozhin: To tell truth, you were not the first choice. We considered Russian writer, Tolstoy.
Holmes: Oh, that's more like it. The man's a genius.
Nikolai Rogozhin: Too old. Then we considered philosopher, Nietzsche.
Holmes: Well, absolutely first-rate mind.
Nikolai Rogozhin: Uh-uh. Too German. Then we considered Tchaikovsky.
Holmes: Oh, you couldn't go wrong with Tchaikovsky.
Nikolai Rogozhin: We could, and we did. It was catastrophe.
Holmes: Why?
Nikolai Rogozhin: We don't know. Because Tchaikovsky, how shall I put it? Women not his glass of tea.

From Transformers Animated

Megatron: Stop staring at me.
Starscream: No. You stop staring at me!
Megatron: Do you think I actually want to spend the rest of eternity gazing at your unsightly visage?
Starscream: Trust me: your visage is no picnic either. And your face is ugly too!
Megatron: Oh, someone just take me offline now...
Starscream: What do you think I've been trying to do for the last four million stellar cycles?!?! AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It's funny, really, when you think about it. Tragic, but funny! AHAHAHAHAHA!
Megatron: ...oh, shut up.

— Stranded and helpless in space, Megatron and Starscream bicker to the end.

English poet Byron, back in the late 18th century, wrote this marvellous piece on the death of the hated Lord Castlereagh:

"Posterity will ne'er survey
A nobler grave than this.
Here lie the bones of Castlereagh
Stop, traveller, and piss."

~oOo~

"The basic formula of their day to day existence, my dear! No matter the drugs in question or the technology at their hands, Holmes still needs his fix, room for his experiments and Watson is there to make sure he doesn't do something too dangerous."

It occured to me that I have not been on here as much as I would have liked.
