UntitledShe winced at the light that glanced at her faceUntitled by ~qurvelab
Only for it to see her desperation and despair
She laid in bed, wrapped by white sheets — curtains ajar
Her thoughts were vile, her mindscape is a no-man's-land
She bears what a dystopian mind: The aftermaths of love
It pains me to see her like this — but I have won
How selfish of me to think of this as victory:
A passive revenge of my rejection
I observed her from time to time:
She drags her feet, with no confidence,
No rhythm nor rhyme
Her wrinkled clothes reflects her uncertainty:
No time to care,
at least not for me
Poetic Terms and TechniquesPoetic terms and techniquesPoetic Terms and Techniques by *futilitarian
This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies. Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass
while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience. Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.
Alliteration (see also Sibilance)
Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds, often used for a specific effect in poetry.

BreakingOne day, you will open the cupboardBreaking by ~GabrielGadfly
to find a wine glass or some Tupperware
and the world will, without warning
or alarm, roll off the edge of the shelf
and coming crashing down.
The oceans will splash onto the linoleum,
onto the rug. All the dust in all the deserts
will rain down onto the couch and coffee table,
the hills will crumble, the mountains will break,
all the windows in all the cities will shatter
and fall, a thousand dangerous miles of glass
glittering on your kitchen floor.
Everything will hush.
Exhale the breath you are holding,
and go look for a dust pan, for a broom.
Poetry Basics: BrevityBrevity: n. the quality of expressing much in few words.Poetry Basics: Brevity by `LiliWrites
When I was in tenth grade, I took my first literature course. It was a six week exploration of poetry. The first poem my teacher showed us was Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro:
The apparition of faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I, in all of my 16-year-old knowledge of the intricacies of what poetry is, informed my teacher that those two lines were not a poem.
"You don't think so?"
"No. They don't rhyme, they are just one metaphor, and did I mention they're only two lines?"
She sure showed me.
Importance in Poetry
Pound's poem is considered such a great work because he inserts several layers into a single image. Using only 13 words he evokes an entire painting within the reader's mind. You can hear the sounds of the trains, see the fatigue of a mother wrestling with her cranky toddler,
I’ve been having trouble with lighting scenes. So, I googled lighting techniques and found three-point lighting. I’m familiar with its concept, but never paid it any attention—maybe I should have.
After reading up on three-point lighting technique, I hopped onto Blender and started testing, using Suzanne (a pre-made 3D model designed for test purposes).
My result was beautiful.
This scene uses atmospheric shadows, reflection (Suzanne & the cubes), and fake ambient occlusion.
However, below is the clay render.
I’m pretty proud of this.
