Lines

by A. Marie

Pieces of me didn’t break. Socks I didn’t roll, shirts
I didn’t fold. Hardly limbed, I carried
each cup of malice in my clenched teeth, and scoured lands
on ten quadrillion purring wheels, a wave of
stampeding machinery, throwing up trees. Continue reading

SEASONS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

life before you
I was six when you were born
growing up in different parts of the country
tender shoots in springtime
no way of knowing we’d ever meet

becoming friends
looking forward to spending time together
talking, going places, learning to care

becoming lovers
sharing the intimacy of our bodies and souls
bonding together in the rush of oneness Continue reading

THE KEY

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

she wants to keep the key
it seems rather strange
since she’s left
            the city
                        the state
                                    and me

she needed to distance me
            with time
                        with miles
                                    with an affair Continue reading

Passengers on a journey to a place they must go
They talk about things no one else will know
Weave a story and maybe add some spice
To make their simple lives seem quite nice

Roads

Living in the shadows of your life
Searching for paths into your heart
Looking for answers all in strife
A journey so hard unsure where to start.

How Many Trees

by Angela Umphers Rueger

How many trees does it take to clothe a mountain?
How many grains form the river’s watershed?
How many drops does it take to fill a fountain?
How many hairs wave and toss upon my head?

Our little garden

by Jem Croucher

I love our little garden
and the space we have out here
It’s lovely in the summer
and at other times of year
And yes, it’s on the small side
but that’s the way it is
So we’re not that bothered by it
as there’s nothing here remiss Continue reading

and I’ve begged Her forgiveness

a sin, unintended
and I prayed to the Lord
that this breach may be mended Continue reading

Every morning now,
every cold, wet June morn
I awaken to a message from you,
the hours pass revealing the same time

in the silence of the night
weaving words inside his head
by the flickering candlelight
