An Ode To Silence: I Wrote Fiction

Your silence is harp to me
When I travel into you, I feel so in love
Lifted on clouds, the hum of peace
Rotating the sun and moon
Like an angel

You are the music in my heart
You are my temples
Thrust your silence, say nothing
When you said nothing, your eyes
A strong ripple, bathed in me, bliss

I am at the level of your madness
So beautiful and free, bursting a kid’s laughter

I sleep in your eyes
I dwell in your heart
I am your miracle
Our love is a miracle

I come naked in your sigh, a secret garden
A pillow for your head
My breasts supple for your mouth
I have taken off, everything
Carry my bruised heart
And before we’d die our love
Would kiss enough

Your kisses, cherished by time
Diamonds and flowers, a rain
In the shadows of my grief
Hold me tight, be forever mine

Your kisses, the plight of my heart
They teach me all the languages
I can’t speak
The questions
I can’t answer
Those things, I do not know
They teach me everything
How to write
How to weave
How to wind words
And prayers…

Birds, Black Swan and Ducks

"The Black Swan" garners 5 academy award nominations: best picture, best actress, best director, best cinematography, and best film editing. The movie, in this season, is the talk of popular culture.

Natalie Portman wins Best Actress, and Darren Aronofsky wins Best Director. It also gets the Best Ensemble Screen Actor's Guild nomination.

Many viewers comment that the story comes so sad.

Wenzi, a young professional says, " The after-effect feeling got a grip."

Macmac, a trader says, "It is a true work of art."

A. The plot is a drama-thriller that shows more symbolism. Focusing on the feather that grows from the body, twitching sizes, colors, and scenes freeze a picture in the mind creating an effect of something real and felt. The self-touching, some blood drip, and the sex play are not growls, but rightly built in the story. They flow naturally and artful. The cutting of the nails gives the severe effect on some scenes showing a dilemma in the charac…

DH Lawrence and Benjamin Franklin

This essay of Lawrence speaks of differences in beliefs. Some writers say that the insights of Lawrence here, are insights of genius, some hyperbolically angry, and some mad. Benjamin Franklin (1706-90, America's Renaissance, model for the American Dream) barbed himself with a list of virtues, and DH Lawrence (born in Notthinghamshire England) made his list, as well.

Both authors are illustrious and profound, each style and belief has its own suitability and approach to life. Franklin is stiff and Lawrence is aggressive. Franklin seems dull, and Lawrence seems bursting. The other commendable for prudence, and the other commendable for freedom. It's like having two hands: the right and the left. In parables though, neutrality deems no loyalty, but weakness.

Check and see, that both are talking of almost one thing; only in different contexts like when people have different religions, and different food preferences, among other things. Lawrence points though, that he was just pl…

How To Take Care of Your Files

Our patience is tried, in various aspects.

Today, should technology crash, files must be kept intact. It is a week of screaming inside me because the laptop I'm borrowing stopped. And I don't know why. So I went to the computer shop/service to have it repaired. So thanks, it is now, working again.

After two days, my old laptop broke. I was told it might take more than a week to get it repaired. I lost some files, and some software installed, here.

And that's the agonizing story about crashing and other computer problems.

Honestly, I'm not a computer expert, but I am trying my best to know better about them. I'm aware they're primary writer's tools, so I just have to handle computers with care. Otherwise, the work stops.

The computer shop (Comp Link) advised me to get one year antivirus for the Neo computers. I think they are right because computers work very hard. My computer uses free Avira, but when it gets repaired, I will try to get an antivirus for on…

See Cyber Surfers: Ted Pedersen and Mel Gibson

Cyber Surfer (Pirates on the Internet) is short fiction, with all the thrills to an easy access of the internet world!

Jason Kane (computer hacker) and Athena Bergstrom (techno-wizard) best students of a small town in the Pacific Northwest, test a new internet gateway called Icarus. Both teenagers share an internet passion and accept challenges of new adventures.

Mr. Madison (computer lab teacher) tells about the internet as "They're not just sitting. They're participating, they're learning, they're interacting."

Later, Athena helps Jason to navigate the dark side of the Net to prove his innocence - before it is too late.

"There's no profit in revenge," said Jason.

"You lead a charmed life," Athena said to Jason with a smile.
