Dead Poets Society
I figured that a semi-private social group would be a cosier place to share creative writing work than in the General Chat forum. Please feel free to submit any kind of work, from poems to short stories or fanfiction. Unless otherwise stated, all of AnimeSuki's Forum Rules shall apply here. Be cordial when submitting critiques - we're all here to learn and enjoy ourselves, not to flame one another.
"Dead Poets Society" is named after the 1989 movie starring Robin Williams. It's a great film that heartily reminds each and everyone of us to seize the moment, for life is short and time, fleeting.
not many members here...
here are some of my anime related, so called, poems...
blog is inactive atm and don't know if i'll revive it...
Haha, yeah. This group is just an experiment, so I didn't really expect it to attract much attention in the first place. ^^;
This is just for reference as mentioned in the thread for that 100 words thing.
whats up everyone. Well i am not a great writer in any respects but i am trying to put together a story for a manga book. i cant fully illustrate it yet(because i am just not that good(yet)). but i hope to make into one one day. so i thought i would join.
Hello all! I think it's about time I join the group. Experiment or not, I think it's quite a nice idea.
Already have a kind of poem thread up on another forum. But it's a bit underdeveloped. I will continue to post my stuff here regularly, both poetry & original fiction. My mainstay, however, is still fanfiction. Most of my stuff is on
Hoping to write fiction & get published someday. A writer knows he has succeeded professionally when he can put his own published piece of work on his bookshelf & admire the view
heya, welcome guys, glad you could join us ^^
Just a quick note:
is interested in trying for the
comp next month (monthly thing), asked me to give it a go if i didn't mind, and i figured it'd be good practice (as well as short) to write some kinda prose of 100 words and submit anyways, keep the creative juices flowing a while.
So if anyone else is interested, drop us a line here.
Not sure if we have to sign up though, if i can get her to give mroe info in here, i'll let her know
Sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind joining. I suppose you have to be a member of the site to join. Is there any specific criteria/ theme beyond just the 100 word limit?
Oh my, it seems this group attracted more members than I anticipated. In any case, I'm happy to see that the main thread in the General forum is chugging along quite nicely.
Hey, I've been a member of AnimeSuki for a few months and I decided to check out a social group. I used to be a member of other forums and wrote a few poems myself. That's why I chose this group.
Hi all, I wrote a poem so how do i share it with you guys? Post it in the general forum or link to it from my site?
I've written a poem about Tsukamoto Yakumo in the School RUmble. IF it's okay I'd like to share it with you guys. I'm still sort of a newbie and the poem is informal, I use my own style in writing poem like these, and it's an exaggeration
Goddess as she may seem"
She is the beauty beyond our world
She’ll out grace any shogun or lord
She’ll outwit and outplay any obstacle she’ll meet
It will be a honor just to touch her feet
No other woman could contest her beauty
No man can resist her power almighty
She's perfect for any man from a prince to a fiddler
To be with her is a privilege only God can offer
Her looks are irresistible compared to others
She is the most intimate of all the lovers
Her looks will freeze any man in unquestionable radius
Her spoken word will always invoke hiatus
Perhaps she’s the deity of all the gods combined
She’s unique whom nobody else could replace or find
Her voice and beauty turns rock into water
She’s everyman’s fantasy and no other
Her cooking skills are one of the best
Her intelligence is simply better than the rest
She’s emotionally mature to succeed all life’s test
She’s physically perfect and has the body of a goddess
She’s feminine and soft-spoken which for us is good.
Yes! She could draw manga, is supportive and hell she can cook!
With her companionship none will feel depress or solitude
For her impeccable skills always brings up good mood.
Her passionate feelings will bring up a sense of security
Her intimacy will provide love and feelings of singularity
Her affections will give moments of eternal ecstasy
Her understanding will tolerate any act of accidental stupidity
Simply saying she’s a dream come true
Her smile will put the pink out of the blue
Yakumo your name brings us sorrow and laughter
Tsukamoto you’ll remain in our hearts forever
Your beauty rises higher than the tallest tower
Cross my heart, these words mean no flatter
No other pretty lady will match her omnipotent beauty
But whatever we love and see, she’ll never be a part of our reality..
You learn something everyday, like the existence of a writing group
It's Half Past Nine
The flickering streetlights,
and the cool Autumn breeze,
on the wooden park bench,
waiting since eight thirty.
The scattered leaves,
which we've watched,
over the weeks,
have all left us behind.
The bare trees,
the empty streets,
provide no comfort,
there's no comfort.
So I'll count my breaths,
every puff of smoke,
every tiny shiver,
so to forget the time.
I don't know the time,
even if I was asked by you,
to see the hands aligned;
it's half past nine.
tell me what u guys think
Aria of Flight
I am floating on a souless breeze
The heart can't hold what the soul can't see
On the edge of air I'm almost there
Breathing stars in the ionosphere
Wings, why don't you let me fly away?
I don't need the earth her ghost can stay
Wolves exhale the death of night
I'm off to see the northern lights
I made a contract with the clouds
That I would make my bed in Nature's blouse
Drafts of nostalgia pervade my soul
I drink mercury drops from my lover's bowl
Intoxication from altitude is seething
Ecstacy takes form; an ethereal being
The seagull's song in the sunset, an outcast on a stage
Leaves me emotionally transfixed, musically bathed
(c) cloak and dagger 2008
Ahh...I hadn't realised people still posted here.
, very good effort at rhyme and structure. However, the rhythm is off is many places. A good poem doesn't necessarily need to rhyme, but it ought to roll off the tongue smoothly. Here's a tip: imagine you're writing a song.
Try reading your piece aloud, and you'll see what I mean. The third line of the third stanza ("Her looks will freeze any man in unquestionable radius") can be improved further, for example.
cloak and dagger:
Some small comments:
- "Ionosphere" is a somewhat ugly word to use here. It sounds too cold, too clinical, too scientific, and detracts from the mood you're trying to set.
- "I don't need the earth
her ghost can stay". I think you need a semi-colon there.
- The final line could use just a little bit more tweaking, I think. Perhaps drop "emotionally", because it contains just one too many syllables and breaks the rhythm of the line. Also, the final image is not as powerful as your earlier ones, like "drink mercury drops", for example. So, it's a bit harder to imagine how the protagonist is being "transfixed" by music.
I did that 2 in another site
Very neat idea for the group~*
I'm usually on writing.com ^^, but been pretty busy n stuff and kinda lost the momentum.
Hope everyone here does well ^^
We shall dominate all with our superior word choice, elegant syntax, and profound creativity!!! .....or something to that degree
