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

Dreams – Lillian Morpork

Dreams – Lillian Morpork

Drifting, dreaming dreams now dim

Where Olympians used to swim,

Dreams of glory, medals gold,

To remember when grown old.

Dreams from childhood’s happy plays,

And the time of practice days

When she so often beat the rest

And outdid her personal best.

Triathlon triumph, and kayak,

Until that day she broke her back

In Artistic Gymnastic contest hard,

Was carried out on a backboard.

Olympic dreams were at an end

And too her life, until a friend

Told her of a doctor, who’d had success

In mending spines. So she said Oh yes,

Please; I want to see him, ask him could

He help me. And he said he would.

And now she rests upon a life buoy

And her heart is filled with joy,

For one day she will once again

Live a life without the pain,

And walk and dance and even swim,

And she praises God for bringing him

Into her life,

Now she’s his wife.
