Matcha ReveriesTurning pages,Matcha Reveries by Resplendent-Dawn
dusty old pages,
words written before
your grandparents were born…
If you're not careful,
the pages will crumble;
the ideas will fall away
and become dust.
Hold on to the words
as long as you can
before your memory grinds them up
A SongI look up into the magnificent oceanA Song by Resplendent-Dawn
This aquarium of stars and planets,
of black holes and CBR–
–who can appreciate the shimmering coral nebulae?
Who can comprehend the farthest reaches of existence…
Who but the Lord God,
He who created the currents,
the bending and expanding space-time,
He who bridges the gaps between parsecs
with a love that makes
hungering to cease.
But the Word of the Lord remains.
Praise the Lord.
RainClouds imperceivably tall and wide veil the moon and stars from sight. Rolling, seething within and without one another, plotting for turmoil to descend upon the mirrored obscurity; a chilling, forlorn wind whispers secrets the sky would rather wait to reveal. Words preconscious — scolding the cobblestone laid wide, a cruel caressing of the street-chasm. Emptiness. Vast, open darkness. Not a single light from a window. Will-o’-the-wisps. Only staggered orbs of lamp-flame provide waypoints on the street.Rain by Resplendent-Dawn
Footfalls fall silent. Left, right. Left, right, one after the other, metronomes contemplative in their pendulum arcs. Pressing forward, past buildings, across intersections… Drip. Pause, looking around. Emptiness. Wind grows, buffets, and begins to sing a song of ghosts. Drip. Of course there’s no one out; the sun had long since left. With reluctance, begin moving again, each step laden with regret.

The Geek's Guide to Inactive Groups
OMG it's DONE
What's done?! IT'S DONE. I have spent days and days and days collecting a list of all the lit groups I could find (1901 groups to be exact!), then I went through each one and moved all the groups that had no discernible activity in the past 12 months to the Inactive Groups list (see links above). Then with
I've learned to love the weight of your palmYour hand rests lightly on my shoulder andI've learned to love the weight of your palm by daybreaksmiles
I cannot decide whether to shake it off
or curl my body into the hollow nest of your side.
I wait. Stare ahead. Think -
I swear my thoughts are so loud
you must be holding back a million smiles
a hundred chuckles, soft and low,
to know my trip-tumbling mind.
I cannot though I want.
I will not though I could.
I do not though I would.
And so it eats at me - your hand,
the whorls of your fingertips dissolve
the thick cords of my sweater.
I am still as new-snow driveways
afraid to tilt and send the instant teetering,
but I can feel the heat of your palm
melting my resolve.
So I pin my quiver-slip lips shut tight.
Landlocked in a moment, I am stuck;
all boats and paddles and life-vests
but not a drop of water in sight,
while the anchor around my neck tugs me down.
And then it's gone, and you laugh,
you smile and recline and
act as if the world hadn't stopped spinning;
as if my heart hadn't hammered out-
what if? what if? what if?
|The music and literature of Traix Heiden reflect many interests, including Japanese poetry and court music. Consequently, Traix’s music often involves expanded musical gestures that manipulate time and timbre, and his literature shows the influence of narratives originating from Japan. His output includes works for small and large instrumental ensembles, choral music and keyboard music. Much of his music is directly or indirectly related to his creative literature output. An ongoing project is the composition of a large multi-movement work for wind ensemble and narrator, based on one of Traix’s original stories, a novel in progress, which is part of an umbrella project codenamed “Saralied.” This project seeks to encompass many genres of both music and literature, often intertwined and cross-pollinating. Myriad styles and genres influence his work, notably the Western and Japanese classical traditions, metal, and literature from the science fiction, fantasy, and horror traditions. Traix has studied under Warren Gooch and Mara Gibson, and is currently studying composition at Truman State University under the tutelage of Charles Gran.|
