What Is LeftA song. Not a popular one, no, and neither an underground, for a small circle of appreciators' song. Just a song. A song probably only a few people on earth have heard, just like millions of others composed by regular people in the whole world. A song about nothing and at the same time about anything you want. A song that has no words but speaks to you in its own way. Not money, not houses, not paintings, not even writings, but just a song out of it all. Of course people will remember them all; some - the money, some - the houses and the paintings there, some - the poems and the stories. But it is not the money that is his biggest treasure, nor are the houses and all the wealth they keep within, neither the old fashioned poems and certainly not the short stories he wrote during long sleepless nights. 
A song. A song he came with one long summer day, unaware of what he was creating. If he knew that it would be the last thing he ever composed he probably would have paid more attenti

What Is Left by Vainamoinenian
"And when the last spade of earth covers the ground above him, a song will be left. When all those people who have known him are gone, a song will be left. When the whole world with us all ends, a song will be left."
What makes this piece so powerful to me are the raw emotions invested. There is a sense of honestly in the writer's words which grabs the reader instantly. I wonder what the words to that song were? What do you guys think were in those lyrics?

My critique on the piece can be found here.


The 2007 movie The Bucket List popularized the idea of putting together a list of all the things you want to do before you "kick the bucket." What would you put in your bucket list? Maybe you always wanted to try skinny dipping in Hawaii at least once before you go? Or is it that you're ambitious and want to break a world record by baking the biggest chocolate chip cookie ever? Or maybe even you always been filled with wanderlust and have dreamed of the day you'd acquire license to fly? Whatever it is, no matter how significant or relevant, big or small, if you want to try a number of things out at least once before "pushing daisies" then now's the perfect time to start jotting 'em down, no? Create your bucket list and then write about why those things are on there and how likely you think it is that they will actually happen. It's time to allow your imagination and fantasies breathing room, lovely people! :eager:

Nice prompt, I think I'll give it a go :) another thing though: the link to the folder leads to the tumblr writingprompts and not a folder within dA. I'm guessing that's an accident and wanted to call your attention to it. :ahoy:
