Love Remained

by Morgan

Love Remained

There in the shadows of Illusionary Calm,
Marked by Mute Pain and Liberal balm,
The Heart that Resides in the drifting array
Of Stars Far from Home, bleeds every day.

Capture the Moment of Intrinsic Time Continue reading

I got to thinking
Life’s too short
for anything else
save that I ought
to do and think
and be about
and nothing else
there is no doubt Continue reading

Let Me Find

Let me find the snowballs
Rolling down this mountain of work
To feel my knees still, on eyes of wonder

And the clouds below
Spilling from my papers
To bring this mind, back on my pen

Papa says
ALWAYS stand tall.
Be resilient like
Giant granite rocks.
Rough strong
Sediments;
Firm and impenetrable;
Difficult to break.

A Handful of Words

by Peter Notehelfer

       Heather McMordie oldprintgallery.wordpress.com

I had a handful of words
rolling around in my palm
staring them down as though
to figure where they came from
how it was they might fit together
arranging them like puzzle`pieces
to reveal some kind of a picture
since every picture is worth
at least a handful of words
or some say a thousand  Continue reading

Your heart left its smile, in my eyes

The woods and the wind

by Jem Croucher

DSCN2179

Up in Stanmer woods
on the ridge of the hill
we are sheltered within
where it’s chilly but still
There’s winter in here
with the mud and the grey
but perfect for walking
on this February day Continue reading

A Walk in the Grass

Taking each days blessings as entitlements oblivious to the joy they bring each moment of every day resorts to living life behind murky lenses unable to find your way through the mazes created by our unwillingness  to take off the glasses of selfishness.

Lush green grass just out of reach through prison bars so bare.

Wishing to feel freedom from  my soul’s despair.

Crippled by life’s circumstance much like those prison bars,

Keeping those who wish to walk held back by their scars. Continue reading

Self Inquiry – Part 3

As falsity flowed into truth
A river merged into an ocean
And I felt my toes, smooth as water

As the bad came into good
Young drops tapped into a river
And I felt the fingers, shine as water

First Nations mural – Toronto mcfcrandall.wordpress.com

Tell me again of the time
you were a child The time
of the winter when the wolves
were at your door begging for meat
and you took them in and fed them
and how when they had eaten
you found they were men
simply wearing fur coats

Spectacular

by Jem Croucher

The beauty of a sunset
seen from a speeding train
Enough to make me turn and stare
in wonder yet again
Out there on horizon
Beneath landscape’s darkened line
the golden ending of a day
Spectacularly fine Continue reading

Woe betide the unwary

December during my trip to Egypt

Woe betide the unwary
engulfed in worldly pleasures
Accustomed to seeking the material well-being
For if we had been blind
we would have had no sin.

The dichotomy of the old and new

by Jem Croucher

DSCN2143

I’m pretty sure that this was not
the hill of nursery rhyme
when a certain grande old duke
decided now would be good time
to march ten thousand up and and down
but it’s nice to think ‘maybe’
that this was in fact the very hill
from that time in history Continue reading

Re-living a trip,
Circle ’round the house,
Turning lights off,
Turning lights on.
A step back in time,
I let loose all my cares.
