William Soule
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
Heya! My name is William Soule: poet, health nerd, and raiser of Bronē pit bulls. I currently study Health Promotion at Weber State University and work as a contract stocker at the Hill AFB Commissary, as well as a supplemental instructor for the introductory nutrition course at my school. I'm also a former volunteer here for the literature gallery (we were called Gallery Moderators back then!), but now I'm sitting in the background as a quiet dA senior.

My poetry has appeared in both online and print magazines, such as Gargoyle, Foundling Review, Alba: A Journal of Short Poetry, and Tattoo Highway, among others, and I've received the 3rd place award for the 2010 DAVID F. & ROBERT BALPH MEMORIAL. Okay, nothing too impressive, but I am working on a full-length collection of poetry that I hope to release sometime in 2017.

1st place--hooray!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 16, 2016, 9:25 AM
Woke up to a nice surprise (more specifically, I overslept big time for work) and found I took 1st place in this contest: CRLiterature announces: The OuliPoetry Contest! There were a lot of great entries. You can check out the results here: OuliPoetry Contest: The Conclusion. Many thanks to the judges for running a fun contest. One thousand cookies for all of you.

Congrats to palaeochannel6 for taking the runner up spot with this awesome poem:

San BernardinoFor months
the same house,
open rooms,
cameramen
across the street,
research,
the roofs
a photo neon.
For months
cars
press on,
cops
screen the structure,
suppose,
push out the couch.
Then someone
paces the area,
a space
kept from them.
For months
the house
open for ferns
or trees,
a phone
cut-out,
a man,
that summer,
on photo.
For months
the perfect
supreme act
of chaos.
For months,
the terror
of open sunset.


Also congrats to the honorable mentions:
Arthisa
womenwhatever ways we went,
wanted, waited,
we went work-weary, whisper-wrecked,
whitewashed.
we were warning,
worry, wrath,
weakness,
willfully.
whatever we were, willowy wonder,
we were wholly warm
waterproofed
whip-wild wet within.
why wonder when
whenever we went, white walls
were willing witnesses,
we wouldn't worry –
we wouldn’t wish – 


ArthurTheBraveOne
MarsfallMars always falls.
Carry a day, play a part;
All hands add laws,
And all ways shall part -
Sharply.
What a man calls a fact
Falls apart, gladly
Mars always falls;
What man calls art
Shall stand – as parts.


ilyilaice
Dignity in Cynicismin light wind,
pink birds in flight,
circling in his lids.
I think it silly —
kings sit in cynicism,
insist it is childish.
his thin wings simply, in crisis,
trying things. firm in his will,
his spirit.
I find him prying in wild ivy
with dignity, smiling.





Grandmother
       golden girl, graceful grasshopper, gastronomic guardian
Grandfather
       gentle giant, garden genius, gave great grimaces

grown grandchildren gathered
       grievous, guilty glances:
       gun, glorious gunpowder—
               good God!
Graves
A found poem tautogram for CRLiterature's OuliPoetry Contest! The tautogram limits you to the use of words that begin with a chosen letter. I chose the letter G and had the Applied Poetics website eliminate all the words that didn't begin with that letter from a text I found on the Project Gutenberg website.

Text used: Graham's Magazine Vol XXXII. No. 3. March 1848, Edited by George R. Graham and Robert T. Conrad
Loading...
a risen ocean—warm ice
carries a massive summer,
a coarse, wave-worn season.

rivers increase or narrow.

corrosive rain across enormous zones—
asia or wisconsin, mexico or missouri:
various areas in succession,
even on roman ruins or vesuvius.

we are worms in a new mesozoic
as a scoriaceous sun oozes
across some sierra. we can see more.
we can see now, our universe.
we can see reason, an answer in our veins.

an answer in some room in america—
a curious minor, six or seven, now insecure
as new axis sea ice or revenue sources—
a minor score: an iron crown worn as a cone

even as a man.
science in common core
A found poem for CRLiterature's OuliPoetry Contest using the "Prisoner's Constraint" prompt, the supposedly easiest prompt of the five. I'm scared to attempt any of the others, as this poem was pretty tough. I used the Applied Poetics website to whittle the text from another work down to words that only contained letters that take up the least amount of space, so no use of these letters: b, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, p, q, t, and y. Not being able to use the word "the" was tough.

Text used: The Elements of Geology by William Harmon Norton as it appears on the Project Gutenberg website.

Spring Break

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 6, 2016, 4:34 PM
Nope, not for partying, booze, drugs, and endless amounts of sex cookies. I'm taking some time to revise some old poems... in fact, some are getting almost completely rewritten. Figured I needed to start working on my collection a little bit, or it'll never get done! Feels good to be writing again, even if it's only reworking with old stuff. I hope to have around 45 poems ready by the end of the year to be shipped off for some critiquing. I'll probably take a poetry class for fun and inspiration, too.

April's also around the corner... Anyone interested to see if I can do NaPoWriMo again? If so, give me some cool poetry ideas!

1st place--hooray!

Thank you SO much for the llama! Heart  I will try my best to keep it safe. :D (Big Grin)  
By the way, if you enjoy sensual/erotic stories, make sure you swing by my gallery
and maybe, if my writing pleases you enough, add me to your Watch list,
cause there sure is more where all that came from! Heart  Heart  Heart
