Re: Yakety Yak



Poor Bob. Manny just won't shut up. Day after day. Hour after hour. Minute after slow-ticking minute. Yak. Yak. Yak. It was enough to drive ANY sheep to desperate measures.

Judging by the look on his face, I'm guessing the ear plugs aren't working out as well as he'd hoped.

Here's the big version

Re: Les Plumes Tombent



Oh, it's a peacock.

"The Feathers Fall"

Inspired by the works of French jewelry designer and glass artist Renee Lalique, with a little Mucha thrown in.

Here's the big version

Re: Inconceivable (V2)



It took me a moment to get that 6-fingered "V", and I'll give credit for that, but overall it's difficult to "conceive" the word. Nice effort but some of the letters just don't stand out (like the "N" and "B") as spelling the word.

Me.

Every entry I've looked at is done by Patrick Pens. Seriously there's gotta be at least 6 of his designs. How cool would it be if he swept the entire derby?

Oh geez, I didn't realize my entry last week was so similar to this! I never saw this one before. What derby was it from?

Poetry, I think. I believe it was rejected for not being poetry, but HM'd because it was good work.

Re: The Writer



As this was for the poetry derby, here is the poem that it was based off:

The Writer by Richard Wilbur

In her room at the prow of the house
Where light breaks, and the windows are tossed with linden,
My daughter is writing a story.

I pause in the stairwell, hearing
From her shut door a commotion of typewriter-keys
Like a chain hauled over a gunwale.

Young as she is, the stuff
Of her life is a great cargo, and some of it heavy:
I wish her a lucky passage.

But now it is she who pauses,
As if to reject my thought and its easy figure.
A stillness greatens, in which

The whole house seems to be thinking,
And then she is at it again with a bunched clamor
Of strokes, and again is silent.

I remember the dazed starling
Which was trapped in that very room, two years ago;
How we stole in, lifted a sash

And retreated, not to affright it;
And how for a helpless hour, through the crack of the door,
We watched the sleek, wild, dark

And iridescent creature
Batter against the brilliance, drop like a glove
To the hard floor, or the desk-top,

And wait then, humped and bloody,
For the wits to try it again; and how our spirits
Rose when, suddenly sure,

It lifted off from a chair-back,
Beating a smooth course for the right window
And clearing the sill of the world.

It is always a matter, my darling,
Of life or death, as I had forgotten. I wish
What I wished you before, but harder.
