“Shedding Thorns”

by Swiss-Ami-Mom

She nourished her garden with passion
Though as a flower herself
Was not let to blossom
Her love seemed as she had bathed in it forever
Her pores entrenched
But it was as foreign to her as to the seed without soil

Poem: A Sonnet on the Bard’s Birthday

by merlinspielen

On this happy day when the Bard was born
shall I write for you a dulcet sonnet?
Pouring out words in this the Bard’s own form
rendered here ill composed yet passionate? Continue reading

A MUCH AWAITED WAITING

by Harry Mullan

Submitted by SMRITI

I will meet my self one day
Whether it is on a star yet not born,
Or on some planet undiscovered,
It may even be on earth or on water.
But this much I know,
I will meet myself one day
In my purest form.

Just being

Enjoy what I miss
The other 51 weeks,
During these seven
Short days

A spike driven through the ears
And bones,
Into the
Cerebral cortex,
The pain drives the daemons out

Landmarks

by Peter Notehelfer

Landmarks

keep our journey

connected to history

Without signs we get lost

disoriented by the darkness

swallowed-up in swirling time

blinded at the intersections

in crossroads that lead us

Spring

by Morgan

Spring
Spring is Reaching outward from the Narrow Confines of Winter,
Painting the barren starkness with Light, Bright Shades of Green,
Bold Viridian Blushing Fair,
Newly Born Spring throwing back her Hair;
Smiling in the Scintillating Light as the Robin Redbreast enters,
Perching on the Fragrant Arms of Yawning forsythia to Preen.

At Night’s End

by Easter Ellen

 

Night’s End

Even the darkest night is followed by day
Even the worst storm ends with blue skies
Even the most broken heart learns to sing again
When they listen and hear My heart’s cries

So weak in its plight

Lucid Moments

by Peter Notehelfer

Like trains

beneath the mountain

passing through tunnels

we move darkness to light

Only then at jagged cliffedge

do we feel the movement

a relentless acceleration

which in the darkness

merely hums

You Should Know

by graypoet

If you want to see your worst critic
Just take a look in the mirror to see
We know our faults that may not show
We imagine a better person we might be.

“Seasons of You”

by Swiss-Ami-Mom

bliss-16-x-20

 

Pour down
As the first rain of Spring
Soak me from head to toe
Illuminate me
Like a glorious rainbow strewn across the sky

Give me a love
That is hotter
Than a sweltering heat wave in Summer
Allowing no relief
In sight
