EMOTIONS

by Harry

Submitted by Santosh Balmiki

Anger as hot as a ball of fire
Often burns yourself on the bed of pyre
Unbearably your nerves are squeezed
When your dead-cold fear is unreleased

Sometimes you win

by Harry

Submitted by Bill. G.

He looked at me then quickly looked away

I saw his reaction but did not speak

I rose to my feet and headed towards the stage

I mounted the steps and then before the audience I stood

 

The lectern and the pointer my only tools of trade

The white board unmarked at this early stage

I cleared my throat and said my first words

“Good evening” echoed across the room

And so it goes
Stopping for none It blows
Body drained on thy knees
Strong wind or gentle breeze
A tiny wind hurricane grows
And so it goes

surviving, sunshine streams

dank, dark days dispersed,

Recall

Lance Vaughn   fineartamerica.com

It was all
about electricity
back when in youth
we dangled loose wires
in the fuse box back seat
of the car learning by braille
lessons mothers never taught
Exploration of peaks valleys
with the awkward hands
still soft with childhood
The jolt just enough
to make us sit
up straight  Continue reading

So many times I’ve visited
Through five decades it seems Continue reading

Autumn’s Ebbing Call

On edge of autumn’s ebbing call
I pause to hear a solemn hush
that breathes in whispered stance between
sweet fading fall and winter’s rush. Continue reading

Escape
Into a story,
My refuge
From reality,
When you’re not
With me

Hold you down,
Touching and you
Squirm against
My restraining hand,
Until I see
Your sweet release,
Again and again

Whispers II

by Karin

Can you hear me?

Say my name just one more time
Say it in your Bourbon and Marlboro accent
You loved when I first described it that way
I just loved how I could feel your voice
Words like sweetgrass inhaled and tickling my senses

In Your Presence

Sweet, Let All anticipation come,
To stand at the door of my Heart and Knock,
Waiting in Breathless Yearning for the Answer
Only You can Give.
In Supplication I come,
My uncertainties Cast Asunder,
And like a lowly beggar, do Kneel at Your feet,

A toadstool

Mistakes

by Heather's Starting End

images

How do you correct mistakes that were made?
What you thought right that turned out all wrong?
I beg for forgiveness, my choices were bad
Please know all I did, was try for so long

Children think Adults have knowledge complete
We are older so that means we’re wise
What they don’t know is that we haven’t done all,
We’re growing as well, in front of their eyes

Every breaking wave

by Jem Croucher

With every breaking wave
I see a part of me
My life down here in Sussex
In Shoreham by the sea
So taciturn, its nuances
Reflect the changing years
An echo to my lost and loved
My joy, my smiles, my tears Continue reading

And thickening tip,
The slippery dampness

Stand Still

by Tiffany (lifewithblondie)

She sang Rock-a-bye Baby from her great-grand-daddy’s chair,
With little bitty fingers tangled in the locks of her hair.
With a baby on her breast and young love in the air,
If time could stand still, she’d want it to stand right there. Continue reading
