He presses now
against the world’s belly
A life outgrown the womb!
See here the pumping of the fist?
See the outline of the foot
pressed into the block
and ready to run?  Continue reading

Hidden But Felt

by graypoet

With the holidays upon you once again
You put on a happy face to hide stress
But to ignore doesn’t make it go away
Bottled up it doesn’t make it hurt less.

Awake
And wanting you,
An ache
Only satisfied,
As your wet, warmth
Wraps around
Me

Making your flesh horn
Murmur and scream,
A melody and dance,

The Black Day In Peshawar.

by Harry

Submitted by Ayesha Azhar
 
 
A boy stood on his balcony
Staring,remembering,and then melancholy
He remembered Miss Tahira,her beautiful tales
And then once again,he could hear the children’s wails.
He remembered his friends,so many were dead
He remembered their faces, covered in blood, bright red
They said he should be thankful he had survived
How lucky he was that he had not died
His mother wept tears of joy
His father bought him a new toy,

The Love of a Thing

by Peter Notehelfer
Karin Kuhlmann mtmuchmore.wordpress.com

Karin Kuhlmann mtmuchmore.wordpress.com

It is really more than possible
one can know too much about a thing
to be able to simply love it for itself alone
For knowing is the art of demythologizing
and it is myth lies at the heart of love
Beauty’s in the beholder’s eye!  Continue reading

Daily Poem – Cardboard Flutter

by paturnerlee

Cardboard flutter

 

Break up the series of floating factions, on a sea of unsolved puzzles.

Crisp crackling sweeties chomped by brazen flocks of masterful responses

Answers to frozen reptile remains, re-discovered in glacier covered mountain valleys

Trillions of debts, held by the richest nations

Rations for the starving running out; lives falling like autumn leaves Continue reading

Words

by Harry

Submitted by Saya

 
 
If words could be roses..
and I had a garden full of them..
I swear you would sleep..
in a bed of petals everyday..
But more often than not..
my words take the form..
of thorns rather than petals..
and I know you are hurt by them..
and I know you love me
in spite of the thorns..

Poem of the day – Plastic abstraction

by paturnerlee

 

Twinkly bits of puce green mint licking electric risking sticks

All for the price of a paltry second hand muck spreading spike retainer

Chipped away ice crashing, crackling on the oil stained linoleum

Humming oven steamed glass, whisking cream for cranberry pie pudding

Roast a potato, for feet warming fire-side viewing

Coarse clichés rumbling through the congested built up societal conscious bank Continue reading

Comes a Time

by Peter Notehelfer

Comes a time for acceptance
a time to be at peace with the self
when pushing the heavy wheel uphill
no longer holds the promise of the coast
we counted on when we were young
thrills of tight curves at high speed
which made the muscles ache  Continue reading

He has long, fluffy, brown fur.
A stripe of white circles around.
Just behind his chin.
Puffy Fluffy wants to be a lion – roar.
Feel the fur? Continue reading

Under festive ribbons and bows

Behind stockings hung with care

Lurks another side to Christmas

Filled with despair Continue reading
