Weathered PeakThe unconquerable peak, the infectious basin
An explorers dream, yet not to outwit.
To stand aside and watch, growing and growing
til the peak grows higher, the stars above lit.
Fertile winds blow past the peak
In its breeze a gang of gravel.
The gravel disperses with frivolous whispers
The peak no lighter for travel.
The peak climbs higher, a journey of gravel
Reaching higher still, an endless climax of tales
Until rain falls heavy; gushes and gales
Unnerve the peak, its accumulation unravels.
Beating away, the rain reigns supreme:
There is no mountain of which to speak.
The rain weighs heavy, yet lighter than the gravel,
Horizons dominate the once proud peak.
Already lame, ill fortunes continue:
A storm brews, the clouds dim the stars.
The basin targeted, the storm marches onwards
The latter victorious with mighty Mars.
The peak lies weathered, no longer in sight
The basin inverted, a peak on its own yet
no longer mighty.
Alex, I wish I could see your smile again.

CSS/HTML Tricks: Article LayoutHello!
Another tutorial for news articles and journals on dA!This one is meant to help you add structure to your news articles (and personal journals) and thus enhance the reading experience for your audience.
I have already written a tutorial on the topic of HTML Literature, but only showcased what is possible there. It is almost the same as :faq104:
