lacoterie is a group about being as much of a virtual friendly corner coffee shop as possible, a place where ideas are tossed around and cemented and change is welcomed and encouraged and not just used as tips for the baristas. Throughout the month of May, we're running our annual Transgressions Contest on the theme of "Vices and Virtues", open to both poetry and prose.
SolutionsSanctuary is a group that aims to dispel myths and cure complaints around deviantART. In May we'll be focusing on navigation around dA!
Critique-It is opening the gallery to all art forms this month only! More details here

Whoas - Theme: Dreams
The endless thoughts of the night,
Rambling, sometimes not making sense.
Soothing away the worries of everyday life.
So very whimsical.
But every once in a while
A special dream comes along
The kind of dream that you remember forever.
The dreams that lulls your mind into a sense of ease.
The sort of dream that makes you genuinely happy.
That dream that makes you feel like you never want to wake up.
There's always that one dream
That you remember for life
Even if you're not sure what the heck it means.
You just can't help smiling when you think of it.
