5 Years

Posted by Velox , in Personal Writings, School Sep 20 2012 · 1,306 views

So today marks my 5-year BZ-anniversary. Forgot completely about it until I saw that I had an Olmak. Half a decade, wow. Lot of memories from this place. Many awesome people that I've met, and, most importantly, the beginning of my writing career. Thank you, BZPower.

And because I didn't write anything specifically for my anniversary, I'll just shamelessly plug my new poem again. =P COT literature always gets buried so quickly...Anyway, here's to many more half-decades on BZPower!

They stare at you
Through the wooden edges of the frame.
A snowy plane lines his cheeks, bushy and misshapen
Like a wild plant, growing this way and that,
Thinning here and there like his life.
Soon it will all be gone.
So will he...

Read the full poem here. Comments are greatly appreciated in the topic. =]

But yeah, I had fun with this one. I'm not much of a poem writer (though I want to be), and that's one of the reasons I took this Creative Writing class. It's "introduction to poetry and fiction writing" so I thought it would be a good way for me to start. And I have to say, I was really pleased with how it turned out. Obviously not perfect, but this is the first real poem I've written. I've written a few shorter, sucky ones, but otherwise this is about it. It's definitely my favorite class, and I look forward to writing more poems, now.

I know, I really should've, but unfortunately they're not people. =/

:kaukau: I find it easier to write poems when I'm doing lyrics to a piece of music (by the way, make sure you read my upcoming blog entry where I do just that!). Then there's a flow, and the words sort of reveal themselves to me through the mood.

Anyway, I'm surprised Sumiki didn't tell you to write a poem about dreaming of farm animals.

On second thought, this.

Congrats on 5 years! In a few months you can call me an old man when I hit 10 in return.
