What are Ozlandish Writings?

From July 2010 to December 2014 we ran OZLAND PICTURE STORIES as described below. Sadly though the number of writers reduced over the years and we decided to call it a day. We leave these as a record of the good times we had.

Are "You" ready to challenge your writing skills? Then participate in our OZLAND Picture Stories writing series at The Ozland Art Gallery.

Each month a new picture will be picked, from our OZLAND Artist of the Month collection, with different themes. Your goal is to write a 500-1000 word... poem... essay... or story about the picture picked. This is a chance for you to challenge your writing skills each month. Story can be written in ANY genre... sci fi... romance... ghost... fantasy... fiction... non-fiction... biography... mystery... historical... whatever your writing genre... feel free to experiment. Send your writing inworld to Sven Pertelson as a notecard to have it included on the web site. We meet at the The Ozland Art Gallery each Wednesday at Noon and 6pm SLT to read the latest submissions on voice. More Information

Release From Chaos - by lillian Morpork

His gaze sinks deep into her eyes,
Limpid, dark indigo pools.
She smiles in satisfaction,
Thinking, men are such fools!
Another soul captured.

His mind’s eye seeks within the chaos,
Searching, trying hard to find
Among the kaleidoscopic colours,
Somewhere, rest for his mind.
Poor soul, captured.

She feels the struggles of the soul,
And counters with her touch.
But he is stronger than she thought,
That action is too much.
Poor soul, beleaguered.

His mind finds, grasps at forms of birds,
Black crows, flying high and free.
There, his mind cries, clinging fast,
That is how I wish to be!
His soul, enraptured

Clings to those forms above the chaos,
Sees them, hears their harsh cries,
Struggles to understand the bonds,
Looks past her beauty to her lies,
Her spell is fractured.

He blinks, and frees his gaze from hers,
Sees beauty hiding evil.
“Get thee behind me, Satan’s whelp!
Thou handmaid of the devil!”
Soul now well armoured.
