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

Christmas is: by Lillian Morpork

Christmas is:  by Lillian Morpork

Christmas is: candles and candy canes, cookies and carols, Christmas cards and chocolates.
Christmas is: holly and happiness, high jinks and holidays, hopefulness and handicrafts.
Christmas is: red bows and red noses, reindeer and right poses, ribbons and red roses.

Christmas is: icicles cold and infant saviours, ice skates and illumination, indoor games and ideal music,
Christmas is: Santa Clause and sunny smiles, snowballs and fast snow slides,
Christmas is: tall trees and tinsel garlands, tingling toes and twinkling lights, tinkling bells and tiny tots.
Christmas is: merry wishes and mommy kisses, money spent and making visits, moving moments with loving mates.
Christmas is: angels singing from atop the tree, art work given to you and me, all the loved ones gathered near,
Christmas is: songs of joy and peace and love, sung in praise of God above, Saviour’s birth to celebrate.
Christmas is all this and more; it’s a promise of life for ever more.

Two Acrostic poems – seasonal theme
Acrostic poems - first letter of each line spell out a word or phrase

Christmas by Lillian Morpork

Candles burning brightly,
Happy children laughing,
Reindeer flying high above,
Icicles slowly dripping.
Santas on each street corner,
Twinkling lights in windows
Mother busy baking goodies,
Angels singing anthems
Songs of new born Saviour

Babe in a Manger –acrostic 2 by Lillian Morpork

Bring gifts of gold and myrrh
And hearts of love and trust.
Babe lies in manger poor,
Each person given judgment just.
Idols broken, all lost and gone,
All gone before the face of One.

Mighty and holy is our Father God,
Angels sing around his throne.
Noels greet His only son,
Greeting him as he comes into his own.
Eager the shepherds come to praise him,
Righteous and Royal, the Saviour of all.
