The CVil war returns in full force this month with a new prompt, and the winner's of last month's contest!  Every month, the literature Community Volunteers post individual prompts that pit the literature community against each other—for the sake of literature!  While the monthly battle wages on, you're tasked with responding to one of our prompts (and only one!

December's Prompt
For many, December is equated with stress. Whether it's the impending holidays, winter setting in for those in the northern hemisphere, or tests/finals at school, you may have reason to be stressed.  This month, I'd like you to begin your poem or prose piece directly following something that caused your main c
December CVilWar: Holiday MishapsThe CVil war returns in full force this month with a new prompt, and the winners from November's CVilWar!  Every month, the literature Community Volunteers post individual prompts that pits the literature community against each other—for the sake of literature!  While the monthly battle wages on, you're tasked with responding to one of our prompts (and only one! You must pick a side.) in the hopes of becoming the sole champion, and winner of that month's prizes.  Read on to find out what October's prompt entails!
December's Prompt
A holiday is here. It doesn't matter which holiday you write about, or what season (though winter is where we're at right now!). There is so much preparation to do before the big day arrives... but cue the benny hill music, because something, or everything has gone wrong. How will it all resolve??

morning.if my words fall
upon your ears   gentle
and serene
littered leaves below
your feet, gathered
and whispering
an ocean vast
of constellations deep
our minds the root,
our hearts beneath
at once we soar
over snowy peaks
the caress of morning
upon our cheeks
saturday morning coffee.Seattle held many secrets in its dreary rainfall: college kids having sex in the 7-11 bathroom, a drug dealer staking out Rainier Valley for new clientele, and, worst of all, a secret agent working at the Starbucks on 5th Avenue.  I had watched him for months now and every day something suspicious seemed to happen. Today, the strange behavior revolved around the chocolate syrup pump sitting surreptitiously behind neatly placed metallic coffee mugs for sale.  The perfect hiding spot for seedy behavior!  A woman I earmarked as pleasant-enough looking leaned over the counter cautiously, eye over her shoulder to detect any prying eyes. She whispered something to the duplicitous cashier who squinted his eyes and squished his face, as if he smelled something rancid.  Perhaps it were his devious plans that smelled so foul!  But alas, all that would transpire would be a few extra squirts of syrup into the woman's drink.  This wasn't enough to convince me of his la

sugar.the air scented like strawberries
and your eyes as wide as cherries
my pulse racing as you saunter
so freely past fields of daisies
into my arms and on my lips
is where i know warmth resides—be
it in your garden or your heart
heat rises without single thought
breathe.coral sunset
in your hair
sunflower's song
softly in my ears
the supple breeze
to your glowing skin
my hand
your chest

.peach blossom rain drops
flood my veins against your stars—
heavenly charade
trees.down below
beneath low hanging
lives a world
so tiny and
rain drops dance
while pink petals
crickets chirp
far below the
announcing love and life
on the ground

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
When asked, what is the most ironic user name you have seen on this site, one name jumps to mind for a lot of people. And that would be `lazybutt Seemingly everywhere and anywhere all at once giving critiques, offering advice and helping newcomers is all in a days work for him.
And then besides that he is always full of great suggestions for the site itself, approaching the admins here with well thought out ideas, and many a recommendation for Daily Deviations or just great artists for us to shine some light on.
And if allllllll of that were not enough then there is the =DailyDeviants project that he has been behind since 2005 as well. So yes, `lazybutt is quite the opposite of his namesake and we couldn't be happier about that.
-awarded August 2007

Which type of success are you hoping for most next year? 

40 deviants said Work/school success (ie promotion or good grades)
