-James Clavell, "Shogun"


The world loomed above
I climbed to the highest point
And saw distant shores.

This is a tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings.

I think I may be the only person that this didn't stump... I liked.

This was a tribute to Lord of the Rings...I was sort of trying to convey how the character is faced with a task of essentially rising over a world that daunts him (being a hobbit). Once he gets there, he can never go back, and can only look onward towards the "distant shores" (the gray havens). 

Thank you for your feedback, though. I appreciate it, and it gave me a lot to think about.

Okay, this is different. It's not bad for it being the first attempt. The only thing i can't figure out is what was the image you wanted people to get from this, because it was really vague to me. Good job for the first try tho.
