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

"Life and Death" by Llola Lane

"Life and Death" by Llola Lane

Life and Death go hand in hand
it is the cycle of our existance.

There can be no Life without Death
and Death without Life.

As a flower grows with new life
it shines bright in the sun.

Then, as the days pass, the flower
withers and dies as the petals fall.

But there is good too in death
as the petals fall they feed the earth.

The earth springs forth more flowers
and the Life cycle continues.

So it is with plants, animals, and humans
We leave our legacy on the world.

All things live, and all things die.
There is no getting around death.

How you choose to live is up to you.
but remember... in death, you will have to answer for those choices.

Live life to the fullest
and in death you will get your reward.
