Grotesque No. 5

Of good and evil, the better was life.
The two were tried for their natural curiosity.
The unrealistically balanced and returned,
Can you enter tonight?
Please enter after a story.

What to be and misuse of time about being?
See the typing trinity;
There to file it out, and in;
To scroll through years on end, as disciplined as any.
A number with eyes and length,
Gathered lifestyles, finer items displayed well,
Happy to stray all at once from given accidents. 

Even in the temperament of places her home was isolation
A dragon of gold thread was all the company she could get.
She couldn't see her natural fear of it.   
She looked longer and it smiled.  

Life had always come across him, eager for his voice.
If only he had arrived.
In silence, he and his replied,
“No ancient mind must exit.
The masses have seen enough.
Their young have more to learn.”

She was glad to age.     
She smiled to him before proceeding to a modest hallway lined with space
“Thank you much.”
No good-bye had come.            
And it pushed her on alone.
Incredibly in this there had been a reminder.
And from it there came the will to be.

New Logo

A lot of redesigning and relaunching is happening at Raventide Books, as we enter into our fifth year of publishing. It was time for an emblem that encapsulated the bright and dark of what I write, or more specifically, the brightly dark dreamscapes that I visit, via entities of equally mottled emotions and psyches. Of course, the raven had to be included, and now, finally, the unicorn(a symbol of tremendous emotional and spiritual significance for me) has been incorporated.

Look for the new design on all Raventide books, including the forthcoming relaunch of the Blood Wars Trilogy, the ongoing Dryth Chronicles, and all else under the Raventide banner.
