Personal Ecology - Personal Ecology A deep desire to cry. The hanging, haunting chant of Gordon Comes at Night, waves of sweat crystallizing on the skin, loosened joints, unfolded from the lodge into the cold night air. Wiped clean, nothing to say. Reach inside for a voice, a meaning, the distance between the earth and the moon in its fullness. Which orbits which. For a year I sat in the only seat that was not part of the circle. "Me" is still a long way off. Each stanza seems a step in a different direction....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 2529 words

Dear Patrick, - Dear Patrick, I wake in the morning. I dress: khakis, black tank top, denim jacket. Leather belt hanging low on the hips. A pink scarf around the neck for a feminine touch. There is an exhibit at the Met I've been wanting to see: "Extreme Beauty: The Body Transformed." I go, because I'm drawn to it, drawn to how we have altered our bodies throughout the centuries with fashion, flashing womanhood like a neon sign. How we have created ourselves through dress, over and over again. There is one piece in particular that catches my attention, a long gown sewn with scales and feathers, myriad, iridescent, with the torso sculpted as a snake's belly....   [tags: Creative Writing Letter Essays]

Pranks - We listened as Mrs. DeCostia enumerated the names of those involved. “Kat, Tara, Kelly, Alexis, Rob, Joe, Matt, and John.” She announced with annoyance. How is it that all my friends got in trouble for the greatest prank in Fairfield’s 75 year history, but my name was left off that prestigious list. I watched my friend’s proud faces as they walked to the front of the room and I laughed as I heard Matt say “So you caught the people, who perfectly reconstructed your room on the roof of the school, but you will never know who the genius behind it was, and as long as that stays a secret, we’ve done our job.” Then Mrs....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1545 words

Raven - Antonio slid in on the sleek black leather interior of his new two-thousand and eleven CTS-V-Coupe. He put on his sunshades and started the engine. “Awesome,” he said aloud. He was driving the New Mexico scenery in style. As an anthropologist, a SUV had always been an essential. Keeping the SUV he was unable to resist the temptation. “Motortrend” called it “Cad-thriller”, “The most desirable Caddy in decades.” This was his first sports car. In fact, he had not had a car since he left Miami fifteen years ago....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1615 words

Police - Neil regressed to the oldest transcendental layers of his memory in search of his now seemingly diaphanous mother. “Why do we not remember birth or any part of that internal oneness with our mother?” For him now, only Esther can be found there. Only her gentle fingers, her sweet breath and soft sounds are in there. Did this other mother ever embrace him or run her fingers through his hair, kiss him on the forehead. Everything protective came from Esther. Every new found act or observation was met by an awe of excitement and praise....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 1315 words

Jack - The rain was pouring down even more heavily now. A young woman ran into the neglected barn and closed the door, she hid behind a stack of hay. The barn door creaked open slowly, and standing there was a large man, in his hands he held a hatchet, it was not very sharp, but it did not have to be for the purpose for which it was intended. He walked in and looked around, he saw no sign of the woman. As the man was about to walk away, the woman peeked out from behind the hay and in doing so knocked over a bucket, sealing her fate....   [tags: Short Story, Creative Writing] 591 words

Winter - I pressed my face up against the glass window, my moist breath causing it to fog up. I watched the boy's dark silhouette shift positions slightly, as he leaned back against the deteriorating stonewall, and buried his head in his hands. Tendrils of dark bronze hair assisted in the covering of his face, making it even more impossible to see what he might look like. He didn't know I was here, quietly watching him. Hell, he didn't even know I existed. I squinted, straining my vision, hoping I could maybe see his face in order to have a visual picture of him....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1495 words

The earth is free from conformity, and not a man shall not have to think with his head. Think with your heart and speak your mind, as fear of the new is the fault of mankind!” A man awoke after a brief autumn nap.

Armistice - It was raining. I was crouched in a large burrowed hole, surrounded by sandbags and half filled with sky water. I had not heard a single gun fire in what seemed like forever. I poked my head up, still clutching my gun with both white-knuckled hands. The dust and debris, everything along the empty street collectively turned to mud. Uniformed bodies lingered face down in the mire. The stucco buildings were sprinkled with bullet holes. Our snipers were on the cracked roofs to both sides, looming down on the center street like wicked angels with rifles....   [tags: Creative Writing] 2283 words

Experimentalism - Writing I find exciting often gets called experimental. In America this is another word for marginal. It's patronizing. Other countries distribute legitimacy in literary culture differently. For example, when in the U.K., Kathy Acker wrote for the Times Literary Supplement. Can you imagine Acker writing for the New York Times Book Review!. Just the experience of reviewing her work in the NYT Book Review caused several reviewers to spontaneously combust. On the other side of the Atlantic, debates on literary aesthetics are part of public — not just academic — life....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

Crepúsculo - Crepúsculo There is a word that I learned from Pablo Neruda: crepúsculo. It means twilight. I swim each night in the twilight of a hundred faces. These are the faces that I see through a silver mist. They are the faces that have found their way to that part of my brain where lost things are kept, neatly stacked, forever pressed behind frosted glass; forever just out of reach. . . . Joe’s face, from across my kitchen table, smiles his gentle smile at me. He sat with me in the kitchen for so long that night, watching as I sorted tiny beads into piles of reds and blues and glowing emerald greens....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1176 words

Nothingness - Nothingness The wall appears to be chiseled from one large block of marble. As if the Gods themselves found a piece of black marble large enough to cover an area apparently the size of Kansas. In fact the Gods themselves did, for this is the wall of Asgaard, realm of the Gods. Seated amidst mountains of mist and covering fully half of existence, the city of the Norse dead is surrounded by this towering wall of rough black marble.

Back then, the Army didn't try to develop any "team spirit" within the corps; men were rotated frequently before any friendships developed.

All she knew was that running for so long of a time made her very hungry. Desperately, she looked around for something to eat, and her eyes settled on a tall apple tree. Jennifer picked a couple and ate them as she leaned against a maple tree while watching mother nature take its course.

Colors - Colors Emulsions are thin, gelatinous, light-sensitive coatings on film that react chemically to capture the color and shadings of a scene. Color film requires three layers of emulsions, typically cyan (a greenish blue), yellow, and magenta (a purplish red). As light passes through the layers, each emulsion records areas where its particular color appears in the scene. When developed, the emulsion releases dye that is the complementary color of the light recorded: blue light activates yellow dye, green light is magenta, and red light is cyan.(1) golden beer lemon (sickly) Sunflower caution banana (mourning) school-bus Yellow....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

It is a pleasant land, bejewelled with placid blue lakes, bedecked with white-capped mountains and babbling with verdant brooks.
