EXILED MEMORIES

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

in a quiet place

deep in my heart

hidden from my soul

locked away from view

kept in the darkness

away from the light of day

or dreams in the night Continue reading

Below the Middle

by mkvecchitto

below the middle.jpg

 

Stuck in a place where the world panders to the middle,

assumptions are made defining what I need, what I want,

what it is I desire, what might be attainable

Things I must have to make me a person of value

A constant barrage daring me to measure my self-worth

against societal rankings I had no part in creating

Down In The Dungeon

by Harry

Submitted by Peter M Burns

.

Down in the dungeon where the
Black rats play,
Spiders decide which webs
They will spin
For prey,
As slugs slowly
Munch their way,
Through the detritus of the day.

SET ME FREE

It seems I have lost my way, help!
Arrows, heartfelt
Pains, death-dealing!
Just my feeling.

Day’s Rage

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Divine day rages against dark night
As a fiery sun hangs low in the sky
Sacred light will not run from the fight
Though Mother moon is looming nigh

The Nasturtium Takeover Bid

by Jem Croucher

The nasturtium’s gone manic
now the summer is done
It’s begun to take over
and thinks it’s ‘the one’
If we left it unchecked
It would simply keep growing
and how big it would get
Well, there’s no way of knowing Continue reading

The Inexplicable Story

by jaybluepoems

As recalled by Geoffrey Chaucer while traveling with the Queen

“Hold fast the lantern Beauregard, her lifted skirt sees light of day!”,
while as I told the dog to sit, I looked the other way.

For all is right in Flanders when castles turn to shades of poor,
but things just got sidewayser, when once her panties hit the floor… Continue reading

The Welly

by Jem Croucher

The feet upon the wooden floor
Are moving to the beat
as conversation struggles
for those who’ve found a seat
The man up on the microphone
is getting really loud
But the music’s really throbbing
and is pleasing to the crowd Continue reading

LIFE IS A JOURNEY

the fellow travelers change depending on the
time, place and destinations

friends, relatives, classmates and coworkers come and go  Continue reading

Crashing Dreams

by mkvecchitto

crashing dreams

None could predict the madness living in a childhood nightmare

would become reality. Not for us anyway. We could not imagine it might

become our story. Monsters aren’t supposed to dwell in our closets or under the bed

but sometimes they do, disguised in the apathetic dressing of those who proclaim loyalty.

That’s the most difficult part, being brave: having the courage to feel

while the world turns a blind eye. Continue reading

The red

by Jem Croucher

I stopped, reduced to tears
when the red before me lay
Tear of joy for splendour
shown to me upon this day

Walking down an avenue
trees on either side
Then this, the most spectacular
to leave me misty-eyed Continue reading

Shared Lives

by mkvecchitto

My daughter says she listens to the sound of my feet shuffling each morning,

my slippers scuffing well-worn carpet as if on automatic pilot.

 

Even behind her closed door, she feels me move.

 

Years spent locked in joint struggle does that. Or it doesn’t. We were lucky. Continue reading

~ Prose (Part I)

by ladyliterati

~ Prose (Part I)
Winter is nipping at Autumns multicolored train, trimmed in gold she rivals the Sun.

This morning she woke with Winters first breath clinging to flora, fauna, her terra firma

Abode, chilled. She longs to continue her flamboyant promenade throughout the countryside, knowing in her wake beauty blooms and eyes behold the brush of Gods hand.

Nature’s evening slumber

by Jem Croucher

Upon the ground this time of year
the yellow, red and gold
A carpet of pure loveliness
from trees both young and old

Crunchy in the sunshine
fragrant in the rain
It always brings a certain cheer
when autumn comes again Continue reading

Robin

by Alanna

robin-2506274_1920I had to let him go

Like the mother robin

Crowded with her noisy young

In the disheveled nest of twigs overhanging the patio door

Whose scruffy chicks were there one day

Then gone the next

Never to return
