Mountain Lord

by fivemsteps

A biting cold set in tonight,
the warmth of day no longer felt,
my breath afloat in mist of white,
before a meager flame I knelt
’round which this forest’s shadows dwelt.

A wailing wind was soon awake,
the leaves all quiver’d in its path,
and ov’r the ridge it quickly snak’d,
towards my camp its purpose hath,
to make me know well of its wrath.

The baleful gale descended fast,
my docile fire now flar’d and roar’d,
as treetops cried like cracking masts,
my tent then from the earth unmoor’d.
From where is such ill fury stor’d?

And through the night the valley moan’d,
from treads and stomps of Tempest’s hordes,
as every ghastly gust inton’d
to warn in shrill and grating chords
the fury of the Mountain Lord.

The Kind of Friend I Want to Be

by russtowne

Originally posted on A Grateful Man:

The Kind of Friend I Want to Be

One day I found I had false friends

It broke my heart and I blamed them

But blaming those I couldn’t count on

Taught me nothing and I was wrong

I had the friends I deserved

For true friends I’d be better served

To change myself and become one

To learn to do what must be done

Train my eyes to clearly see

What their eyes are telling me

All the things so hard to say

Keep listening ‘til they find a way

To share their pain, grief and fears,

Hear with my heart not just my ears

Give a loving hug when they need one

When they’re defeated and when they’ve won

Stand with them in life’s hottest fires

Help them achieve what they desire

Then speak my truth while being kind

So they’ll know what’s on my mind

Share my…

Rush of Wind

by ladyliterati

Rush of Wind
When the wind comes sweeping down the vale

Russling leaf and limb 

Swirling about the filed of flowers

And wheat tops tall and thin,

I often stand in awe of intangible touch

The wind I cannot see

But how it seems to rush
The sleepy little vale seems to come alive

As the wind keeps rushing

An impression of color sweeps by,

And as a moving canvas

The colors bleed and blend;

A moving Monet, copied by the wind.

The best wines come from

moments and infinities 

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

Let’s be happy today

Because today is a moment 

We shall carve into history’s skin

So hold it within your palms 

A drop of liquid gold sunshine 

Trickling away to infinity


Now take my hand

And drive away with me 

Into the blazoning sunset

Let’s pour stars in our pockets

Etch memories into the cold earth

And twine our hair with the strands 

We caught from the tails of comets

And let the gates of heaven and hell

Swing wide open, for all we care

Sing, like giddy drunkards

Until there are no words left to say

And as we paint colours in history 

Let’s be happy today

What Is a Poem

by Peter Notehelfer
Ken Kewley

Ken Kewley

After all what’s a poem
a few words basted together
like the patchwork of some quilt
tattered pieces of some tattered lives
remnants in fact of worn denim
threadbare from their years
suddenly useful again

Wishes and Dreams, Once More

by Heather's Starting End

I held a heart that wasn’t mine,
It sang songs, but not for me
Just how crazy had I been
All along hearing,
So incorrectly

I loved you until, my heart bled dry
Till the music,
No longer played
Till the only sound within my head
Was the echoing madness,
Of an empty day

Amor Siguo (Love Continued)

Like a smoov,
crisp wind
in a sedated glade or
a pensive gaze
at an electronic rain

in between
the smiles
inevitable vicissitudes
of life
