It was very hard for me to narrow it down to only five of each:)
Phil Phillips by metaphorest - I love the way metaphorest plays with words. I think this is a perfect example.
Fake Histories: The Spork by tori --- I love the Fake Histories collab and this one is my favorite. It's just so bizarre and ridiculous but is so-well written that you kinda think - huh. Maybe that could be true:)
Summer in Spain by tommacarte --- the imagery in this is gorgeous. You can actually feel the poem....
That Which Was Our Friendship by phenomenaaa --- this poem makes me feel so, so deeply. Heartbreak from love relationships ending is so often depicted in song, poem, film, etc. but we rarely see depictions of friendships ending, and that hurts just as deeply.
Her Pockets by tori -- Beautifully written and I love the way it pulls you in... not knowing why they're going through her pockets --- are they thieves --- and then the note at the end just hits you.
Aquatic Life image by ShanPan --- gorgeous image. ShanPan has done a lovely job of vibrantly capturing the feeling and sensation of being underwater (which is one of my favorite places to be... with scuba equipment of course:)
the hitREfractal by fractaldust --- I've never thought of math as artistic (or of math being of much use at all:) until I saw fractaldust's pieces. This is a beautiful and precise REmix.
dandelions at sunset 2 by rjdpa --- a beautiful, magical moment was captured with this photo
imagine by wirrow --- my favorite wirrow piece and one of my favorite pieces of visual art ever. The sentiment is gorgeous and the child-like way of drawing perfectly captures the idea of youthful imagination.
A Possession by MattConely --- not sure what it is about this photo but it is extremely haunting... the way the man is clutching onto the radio... it's an image that speaks volumes.

The spork was invented in March 1938. Due to a minor meltdown occuring aboard the British submarine 'Gadzooks' during dinnertime, a seemlessly ordinary fork and spoon were fused together in an u...
It was so hot that you didn’t wear clothes,
only threw the windows and the shutters
wide open and hoped for a breeze.
The nights I couldn’t sleep, even with
only a s...
Through our entire lifespan
everything reminded me of you
and everything felt perfect,
because it was you
and it was me,
and how could it be any less

When she died, they took her things:
necklace, watch & silver rings.
They slid them off with expertise,
then took her wallet, phone & keys.
