This contest has ended. The winners announement can be found here.



-Mum, can I invite the neighbour from the top floor for a tea? He's cute.
-Darling, we live alone on the top floor and there's just the roof above us.



Is it a nice house elf? Or the annoying one stealing just a single sock from a pair? Or its cousins, living in the wardrobe and biting holes in your coats. Or something worse, disturbing or gruesome... Does it live in your room, in the kitchen, or somewhere else in your house? What is it?

This Autumn, in this contest your task is to present us that creature from your house. Inside - no gardens. Unless the garden is inside. And it doesn't have to be your house, could be the one you dream about. Heading back to the creature itself - you may consider it an invader from your point of view, but perhaps it lived there a long time before you were born... or it follows you wherever you move in. Good if it's a harmless one - but what if it is not, what if it isn't...

7. O sing, museI fell asleep once with my memory caught
in tadpoles and roses and water and light,
in the mausoleum where bloodshot eyes
And paper meet (where ideas drop from nubby pencils,
to splay, stillborn, across a sea of white).
My pen bled circles
through my desk that night.
When I woke, you were standing
on the edge of my sight,
your eyelids trailing ink.
I watched your hands fold in and out,
The smell of words too strong to think.
You smiled at me and let me fall
into the promise of your face.
There I read snowflakes, sea-foam and angels;
flashes of of glory and splinters of grace.
I asked you in, and your words behind -
'Sing, muse, of roses and water and light,'
I was fool enough to call them mine -
My pen bled circles
through my desk that night.

I hope there will be more arts, because it is very interesting topic! Here there are some excellent work! :)

I never took part in the contests. I thought about it, but I'm afraid I do not have time.

Time, what is time?
It is an inspiring topic, but what I managed until now is little more than a sketch, and I'm afraid I really don't get to work something out that qualifies for a contest. Days really are too short...
So I guess I have to wait for another one.
