My Garden Green
My garden green, my koi-pond blue.
In the sky, the lightning flashes.
All around, the rain pools slowly.
In my eyes, the blood comes drifting:
Metal moves with twisted pleasure.
Shouting, cursing, a move, he chokes,
He falls, grotesque, lies at my feet.
On the grass, his blood pools across
My garden green.
I plant them when the sky is grey -
I know they'll soon begin to grow.
Hurry now, my blood flows quickly.
Hurry now, the lightning passes.
Another body joins me in
My garden green.

To Immigrants
Who are you?  No, not your name -
    who are YOU?
I want to open you up (like a box),
    and pull the stars out.
I'll throw them to the night sky,
    and they will be yours,
    ours, everybody's.
Step forward -
I don't care what you wear, nor who your parents are,
    what country calls itself part of your soul,
    who is the prime mover of your universe,
    what colour your skin is so artfully painted.
I'm dying to know what ingredients you'll bring
    to this/my/your/our country's stone soup.
Step forward, stand out, and bring me your heart.
I want to marvel at the ancient oak, or rowan, birch, pine, cedar,
    whatever it is that comprises your family tree.
You are the newest seedling, the farthest outpost.
Come here, here by the ocean
    where all things end, where all things begin -
    come by smooth rocks and cold winds,
    and smile at what we ha

to look up--
the sky is a page and
i am
the eye that reads its words
i am
like a sailor in the time of incomplete maps,
the oceans above, to me, are boundless.
in quantum recursion:
the raw blue ions trace concentric paths,
my retinas - illuminated infrared by
refracting dawn. my head,
the sky seems like a real place;
clouds -
when i traveled among them
evaporated - slowly - into mist.
heights are relative at a logarithmic scale
earth is a billion fathoms long
or as many yojanas deep
but the familiar blue (obviously!)
is an old friend,
a blanket
close enough to touch.
like clouds,
are transient.
when the rain comes, i’m aware
it’s not permanent
but neither is its lucky absence.
my friend above never stays the same.
here's a coda:
even the roof of the world,
at night
our atmosphere slowly dissolves
even the sun
has brothers.

Hi, I'm Paul (my last name doesn't really matter, but it definitely doesn't start with "We"). I write fiction and poetry, take photos, and write music (which you can find on my newgrounds and YouTube accounts). I'm also a programmer, but I kind of suck at it. I live in the general area of Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Please check out DeltaSquadProduction's profile. She's my absolute best friend in real life, and she's really awesome. And super smart, too. And probably more than willing to RP with you.

Also, check out my group Jolt-Of-Creativity. We accept any art from anybody, but it has to be interesting and original. We have over a hundred members last time I checked.

I don't do commissions, but you can give me an idea or request something and if I'm in a good mood I'll be happy to do it.

Most of my photos are free to use with credits!

Collaborations - Open by SweetDuke Trades - Open by SweetDuke Requests - Ask Me by SweetDuke Gifts - Friends Only by SweetDuke No Commissions by SweetDuke No ACEOs by SweetDuke No Kiribans by SweetDuke

Other websites I'm on:

I'm inactive.

As you can probably tell, I don't go on dA much anymore. This is unlikely to be permanent, but I'm mentioning this because you should know what this isn't a quick way of contacting me anymore. If you need to contact me, you can email me. The first part of the email is phschultes, and it's a gmail email. I'm not going to type out the whole thing because I don't want any spambots collecting it, but I basically just said it, so it shouldn't be too hard to use. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

To be absolutely clear, I AM NOT PERMANENTLY ABANDONING DEVIANTART. But given that I probably won't use it much for the foreseeable future, I thought I should post this.

Until next time: as the Whole Earth Manual puts it - stay hungry, stay fooling. And I wish you all the best of luck in all your endeavors.
