The White Hart’s closed at Stopham Bridge
And no-one’s serving there
We were looking forward to that pint
And some wholesome country fayre Continue reading

Sometimes,
I just want to disappear,
Plug in
And forget who I am,
Take the blue pill,
Ignore how deep,
The rabbit hole is

Pustulant  little daemons
Swimming
Through all that lives,
Rot and decay
Happy contribution
In the grandfather’s name,
Slow journey
To the final
Death

Moonlight,

Like the Dawning of Hope

From the Darkest Hour,

Fills Each Night With Blessed Peace.

Poetry is…

by Harry Mullan

Submitted by Colleen kelbert
 
 
Poetry is the mind – heart -

soul released in prose.

It’s a heart’s tear(s)

when things go wrong.

It’s beauty, in streams,

from all one sees.

It’s play – it’s fun – it’s a

warm embrace.

And I revel in the pure joy of your attention

Your vulnerability surprises me

Your attempts at intimacy hesitant

Success Walks

Success Walks

When Shimmering Vestiges Cross in chaos
And the dull blade drops to barren terrain,
A Spark of Melodic Enchantment Lilts,
With Bolstering Refrain. Continue reading

Memory Lingers

Memory,

Like the Tidal Sea,

Lingers Breathlessly in me;

Shifting,

Like Waves upon the Shore,

Whispering Patiently, More and More. Continue reading

Wake

by Morgan

Wake

The fire that chokes,
The sea of twisted brambles that scratch and tear,
The restless tempest of the wandering wind,
The broken glass that serrates and severs,
The jagged blade that plunges deep into Precious Life,
All shambles of disarray and turmoil,
Lies and fodder to feed the foolish.
Wake, O Most Beloved One!
See the Dawn!

Mirage

by sheketechad

We peer as if behind delicate lace-work to soften
Need – weighted with a terrible tinge, puce maybe?
Whispering aches only heard by wall art
Behind cool darkened doors of solitude.

It appears in couched terms
Divulged in metaphor, spun in rhyme
Shrouded in lyrical prose; mirages no one sees but
All see, in this overcrowded desert of bodies.

Her Love Stretched forth

Like Sparkling Waves upon the ocean,

Shimmering in the Loving Sun,

Caressed by the roguish wind, Continue reading

To keep us safe in here today
Don’t like this cold display

On the water
the reflections
anticipate the boat
The wake remembers it
The ripples rib their way
to the waiting shoreline
there at last to lap
at ancient stone
with murmurs
