|We have just set up a quiet lounge where our members can sit and chat after a hard day's work.|
Just KNOCK and enter.
SleepTired.Sleep by Ever-Evolving
But not of the sun.
Or the rustling leaves of the trees.
The sweet lullaby of the pollen never swayed me to sleep.
Nor the contrasting light of the moon and abyss of dark night.
It was the aching mind of body.
The way a stomach grows hungry over time.
When you know a flower's petals are wilting with age.
I know all I can do is ignore it.
But the impact is stronger if you do.
Wasted FleshFlesh, flesh,Wasted Flesh by WordOfChen
Such wasted flesh...
This able-bodied meat.
Defiled by drugs and impurities.
A mind born with clarity,
Yet so blatantly abused.
No harm did you suffer;
Other than harm self inflicted.
Disregarding the hopeless gazes,
Of those who were born without.
No good, no good;
This I cannot abide...
I shall take this flesh from you,
And it shall be tended and made anew.
A gift to those who are deserving,
Of the very gifts you cast aside...
Now then, my dear,
Do stop your screaming.
It will only be painful,
Until your heart stops beating.

Cries Of Narcissism"Mirror, you are the only one I loveCries Of Narcissism by 8PoeraOpetry8
With red berries in the white snow
With the creeper's trail around the stone castle,"
said the one, who got lost in the mirror's brightness
While others left kisses on love letters
That were brought away by the whitest of pigeons
She painted her lips dark rosy
And after then got stuck to the mirror's mild glass:
"It is for you, the most beautiful,
With whom no one can be compared"
Between millions of people all over the kingdom
She was lonely
Though she didn't feel it herself
Though she never longed for anyone
Days passed sinking into the baths of milk
Tasting luscious honey and sweet nectar of fruits
Enjoying massages from the ancient eastern wisdoms
And drinking tea, that promised to save her youth
But why all of this, if no one looked at her?
Such despair fell over her only when the mirror was far away
Meeting again with her reflection
A smile like never before decorated her harsh face
And arms were reaching to caress this divine beauty

|What is the IdotW Contest about and how does it work?|
The IdotW competition is a weekly contest for all members of Ispirare. This represents the main route to get your deviations in the group's Featured Folder ispirare.deviantart.com/galler… , which is, by definition, the best that the group has to offer according to its own members.
In order to enter the competition, each member is invited to submit one piece of work to the group's showcase folder ispirare.deviantart.com/galler… . This can be changed once every month or by contacting Nigalius, who will remove the old and put in the new.
Every Monday night (GMT), group members meet in the Ispirare Piano Bar and pick a selection from the showcase folder which they would like to see in the competition. Any member can come along to these meetings and take their pick of their favourite(s). The Piano Bar can be entered by clicking here chat.deviantart.com/chat/TheIs….
Once the selection has been made, the admin staff announce last week's winner, and sets up the vote for the week to come.
The winning entry is allowed to add the Ispirare IdotW rosette on their deviation from this point on. fav.me/d38lt0j
At the end of the year, we will be running a This Year's Finest Competition, which will feature all the winners for a 'grand prize'. (To be decided as yet).
