Random Favourites

There are some amazingly talented people on DA and these are my particular favourites! I tend to fave a lot of redheads, forests, mazes, topiary, sundials, gardens, toadstools, cats, cute wild animals, ballet themed shots, landscapes, blue and purple flowers, sculptures and artistic nudes, but there are a lot of other themes to be found in my favourite's folder!

Enter...and enjoy...

A Poem Turned to Prose

Once upon a time there was a young woman who always seemed to be waiting.  But for what, she didn't quite know.  Perhaps it was a hope for that seed inside to finally germinate and begin to grow.  An anticipation for it to be sparked, one day, by something…something intangible…something balancing on the very edge of reality.

The seed stored the essence of her dreams, you see.  Dreams that maturity stole away and changed the games she always thought she wanted to play.  And years passed.  Things were forgotten.  Lost in the cycle of time.  She was happy, happier than most, but she felt there was always something missing.  Because the seed remained.  Still remains.  Like a tiny shard of glass piercing her heart.  Every day.  Every second.  In its persistent, nagging way.  Not a torment.  Not painful.  Just there.  

Always there.

Sometimes she fears she will take it to the grave whilst at other times she hates the fact she even cares.
A Poem Turned to Prose
This is an old journal entry that someone faved today and I can't even remember writing!
So I thought I'd submit it as a piece of literature as well.
Thanks for reading. :)
