In starry eyes, beneath starry skies, we sleep together in the fitful night. We are one, we are the same... once two separate people, now lovers, now with lives entwined and enmeshed one with the other, our strands, knotted, braided, entangled in ecstacy and muted divinity... not of our own, but the reflection of it... within our lives, like silken cords once flying free, now inevitably locked in their embrace... the cords still have the appearance of beauty, but were they to be untangled, unknotted, and separated from the other, they would be wrinkled, filthy, unlovely... they are not to be on their own any longer... We have become one, and one we shall stay... until forever turns her head and walks away.
From Alpha Centauri with LoveI'd like to write you a messageFrom Alpha Centauri with Love by TheHungerArtist
in hundred-foot high flaming letters.
It would tell you
you no longer needed glasses.
A passing spacecraft might mistake
my words for a signal
that the earth was running out of air
and, though we are very sorry,
there is no safe place for them to land.
If the words were bright enough
they may carry to the edges of the nearest
star, and there split in two.
Observers on Alpha Centauri
interpret it as a dialogue
on the subtle machinations of string theory.
In translation it becomes a bestseller
on Dagobah 7, and is summarily
taken out of print.
When atmospheric lensing distorts my message
you may scrye the meaning
from the warmth of the words
as each letter spreads itself beyond its boundaries
and becomes a wall.
As Chinese textbooks tell us
no walls can be seen from space.
So, maybe no one knows the words
I write you-maybe no one is looking.
If they were, they would see a rope
twisting up through clouds-as thin
but strong enough to climb.
Drawn To A Moment CONTEST! THE THEMEDrawn To A Moment CONTEST! by Wicked-Illusion
The theme of the contest is drawing/painting one of your favorite scenes from some movie or a TV show.
There are always some great scenes that we remember for a long, long time, scenes that amaze us, scare us, make us cry, inspire us...scenes that we just love very much! Take some time and think about some scene like that.
You can even show more scenes than one in a single artwork, make an artwork that consists of two or more parts. It's only important that the scenes are from the same movie/TV show (or even better - from the same episode if you're drawing TV show fanart)
Some EXAMPLES of artworks showing scenes and using a screenshot/movie stills as ref:
Dean and Sam Winchester by KJS-1The Slow Path by naturalshocksShe Knows by naturalshocks
