Mothers questionsHow did you get poo on your ear? And
how is it when we think you’re dreaming your
curious eyes share the truth. And why
is it when we dine, you wail until we stop for you
to repay our comfort with projectile vomit on you, on me, on daddy, on the sofa, the floor, the cushions
and my dinner plate.
Your hands raise above your head;
this is the way to sleep and
this is the way you snore and
this is the way you will then wave your shark fin hand to tell me
it’s feeding time again.
I love you because you remind me of a man
who farts and smiles just like you and wraps yourself in
my old cardigan as if it was me cuddling you. And you both
drive me crazy to frustration but make me smile with one look
You are the DrugVelvet blue eyes;
rich and eager tug me.
no patch, no therapy, no miracle cure
I am your addict.
You are the drug.
The terminal infestation of dependence;
a life support where without
my mind withdraws.
PE: Poetry Forms- An A-Z An A-Z of Poetry Forms!
To kick start this week at projecteducate, we're starting off with a slightly lighter-hearted article listing just some of the poetic forms that exist out there. Lets be honest, there are hundreds and we can't list every single one. This is just a slice of the forms out there and if you are wishing to expand your understanding of different forms, do some research and don't take this as gospel!
Each form has a direct link to a site that describes the form in more detail, usually with examples too. I have also included some good examples from dA when I have found them.
Yes some of these link to wikipedia!

Race for Life 2013Hello all!
This isn't the first journal I have wrote this year, but I only have 7 weeks left till Race for Life! I've just started my training and surprised myself that after a year of not running I can still manage a run!
Race for Life is a 5K charity run raising money for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research do life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.
This is my 5th year in a row doing Race for Life, and every year it becomes more and more important to me. There are far too many people suffering with cancer; too many families, friends and individuals and the work Cancer Research do is so important. I expect everyone has their own experiences with cancer, whether first hand or through others and the fact if affects everyone is why I feel so strongly about doing the little things to help find a cure. I'm not a natural runner, if you

The Beard of intrigueHis beard was fascinating.
It was a loom, woven with intricate detail and so long it would put any wizard to shame. Each pattern in the coarse mound of hair seemed to share a secret. Perhaps they were memories- I’d heard others collect memories in such ways- etchings on their bodies, collecting objects and even journal writing. Maybe this man was his own journal.
The rest of him seemed positively ordinary. He rested in his chair in a blue business suit- albeit a little outdated for fashion, but suited the character I had begun to form in my head for him. His sorrowful eyes narrowed on a frustrated brow of greying features, illuminating a sense of tiredness. Perhaps the beard in all its might was weighting down. His skin was as rough as sandpaper, blotches and scars etching his hands and face with no revelation to the puzzle of his beard.
I wanted to move closer, debating whether it was rude to ask. The very notion excited me as I built up theories as to why his beard had the

dA Compliments #14 + Important AnnouncementsOkay, this is long overdue, so let's get to it. I remember when I first chanced Riemea- her artwork was astounding and I was awed with what I saw. At the time, she was trying to sell some commissions, and I tried featuring her (I highly doubt it was seen, darn). xP Anyway, little did I know she didn't just have an amazing gallery, but she also had an amazing personality. When I started getting more involved in the community, I would see her helping with many things from giving constructive feedback to giving her time to do features for others. Now, I work with her at this amazeball group known as dAWishingWell, and I see now just how sweet and thoughtful she can be! I also see how sneaky she can be, hehe.
pizza - I love you more than anything.

Featured by Sammur-amat
Madeline, better know as imaginative-lioness, has captured the hearts of many here on deviantArt what with her undeniably incredibly gorgeous gallery and equally beautiful and selfless soul. I have been a fan of her simple yet emotionally-strung work for quite sometime. A keen and clear sense of honesty and transparency can be felt throughout most if not all the pieces in her gallery.
Also, with her fairly recent community-driven project, the LiteratureRoadtrip, Madeline has inspired and further sparked the interest of our precious little literature community to interact, favorite, comment and critique each others body of work. What better time to feature and promote her efforts both as a talented poet and big-hearted deviant than now?

Communal Karma #2Communal Karma
Hello there and welcome to the second edition of Communal Karma.
In the Communal Karma series I highlight the devious little squirrels who have suggested literature DD's in the past month. To do this I will collect the names of the suggesters from the past months DD's. I am aware, of course, that many other deviations are being suggested to our lovely and all powerful overlords but I don't have access to those!
The point of this feature is to make those who support the literature community get seen themselves, a karmic reward for doing good and expecting nothing in return. It might also encourage more people to suggest incredible literature for the site-wide feature, which is also great because it means that the CV's will have eyes and ears all over the site finding amazing unseen gems to share with the rest of us.
Suggesting a Daily Deviation is a very kind thing to do. It doesn't happen at the click of a button and these people made conscious decisions
Super Sundays 8.5.12Welcome to Super Sundays! Sorry I've been so terrible about getting these features (and any updates, really) out recently. The summer heat makes me so lazy and I haven't done much of anything productive for the past month thanks to exhaustion, laziness, Full Metal Alchemist, League of Legends, and Minecraft. However, here we go! I apologize for the delay of everything, but I hope that my getting back on the ball can help make up for it!

Don't Panic! Win Some Points. ;)Some of you may have noticed GrimFace242's account says it was deactivated. I know I was personally horrified that
my slave labor and evil partner in shenaniganssuch a wonderful deviant had left dA without so much as a word of discontent. : It just made no sense!
But my theatrical panic was short lived. I know his twitter account, and after a quick, "WTF, Grim Face?!" I discovered this deactivation was not his doing.
So, Grim Face did NOT deactivate and as far as I know is in the process of recovering his account. I assume there will not be problems with that and we can expect so see GrimFace242 back in a couple days. If there are issues, I'm sure he'll pick a new dA username and sign up again. Either way, no worries.
This, however, is a golden opportunity to talk about him while he can't reply! Everyone, please do tell me
some juicy rumors you just made up about himhow wonderful you think Grim Face is in
Parenting for Sex AddictsThe half-day.
We are not those folks that need an occasion to try. And that’s what they call it, too. Trying. As if the very idea of it is taxing. It’s not taxing and we are not those people.
No. We do not go by some magical calendar. Schedules aren’t really our thing in general. That’d be too organized. Too stuffy. Too… I don’t know… too planned. And we’re not the type of people whom plan.
If we could—plan—our lives would be much different. I think. It’s hard to say because this is how we’ve always been.
Our very togetherness is a result of impulse. I’m almost certain that the amount of time it took us to decide to move in together was significantly shorter than the amount of time it took us to remember each other’s names. We might have had our first conversation moments after that first… what I mean to say is we didn’t plan. Because planning would have been much t
