What is a poem?

by Megha's World

What is a poem? I call them little bits of creativity scattered here and there in your mind. Hiding, waiting to be discovered, waiting to take shape in form of words.Every time you trace the path, it changes its shape.Taking new twists and turns, it gives an entirely new meaning to the emotions stored in there.

A Poem as I call it, a complex emotion in a compressed manner.

A Poem is like a walk
A walk inside my mind
In all its nooks and crannies
where I’m storing the sunshine

Persistence

by mkvecchitto

persistence

Sometimes dreams take shape

in the afterglow of a cleansing fire

Hope borne from the ashes

of grand plans marries naked ambition

This, the inception of new found goals, flourishes Continue reading

breathing a  different world;

unaware of your existence;

a million lives apart.

Demons

by Megha's World

So, how much control you have on your feelings? You think you have mastered your desires and the no temptation can stir your soul.You think you have tamed the demons inside you. Wait and watch till the next temptation shows up.
Wait till the demon shows up.

So you think you can tame the fire

Words about Seagulls

by Jem Croucher

I have written of seagulls
(Well, I would, wouldn’t I?)
As, living in Sussex
you’ll oft hear their cry

They’re as much of a part
of a life by the coast
as the people who live here
The sea playing host Continue reading

Little Thought

by Megha's World
Everyone is living in this rampant chaos called reality. We are swarmed by ideas and thoughts every living second.So, sometimes when we are asked just to focus on one thought, one lonely thought, in your mind.It gets very difficult.

Sometimes I wonder, how will it feel to have just one thought in our mind.
Have you ever wondered?

kyle-glenn-350542

There is a thought, one deep lonely thought
Wandering in my mind

An estranged thought;
A little bit unkind.
