Fall Splendor

by J L Hunt

Fresh, cool breeze…

Crimson leaves,

An array of splendid colors.

Gusts of wind, with sounds of hymns

Flowers fading…

Children waiting,

To jump & play, & splash away…

Into the scattered leaves,

Blown from trees…

For Fall is here. ©J.L.Hunt

No spec of molecule

As it flows beyond

The naked eye.

The Cost of Love

by 50djohnson

As I’ve gotten older and have begun to lose the ones I held dear, it makes me search for reasons why we make the decisions we do? What motivates us to love? What motivates us to sacrifice our time for someone else? What motivates us to reach out and do what’s right and good,and others to chose to give pain and hate? I share a few of the ideas about which I’ve been thinking. What is the cost of love?

How long has it been since you talked to your Mom or just picked up the phone?

How many times have I reached for the phone and remembered she’s no longer home? Continue reading

Audacious

Caress of Quietness

Whispering Temptation in my mind

Perhaps it Was

by The Poetry Channel

Perhaps it was a mourning dove,
or other bird I’m thinking of,
fluttering as it took to wing
to rest atop the tree and sing
the lamenting coo of its lost love.

But still have meaning when you’re through.

Privilege to share

by Jem Croucher

20160913_181553

Another lovely end of day
in my favourite place
Sitting in the sunshine
with a big smile on my face
I’d take a little selfie
but I’m pretty sure that you
Would rather see some beach huts
from my favourite sea view Continue reading

A Voice for the Voiceless ~ A Poetry Challenge

a rising chorus of the Voiceless
Those who while in the system
remain outside of it

Looking Homeward

by Harry

Submitted by L. T. Garvin



As Thomas said,
“Look homeward, angel”
and every now and then
I run along the
arroyos and narrow paths
of an earlier time.
Sometimes meeting myself
halfway in
sometimes not.
Noticing the changes
in windswept tides.

Give One Yielding Hour

All forgot in the moment.

Pretend to care not, if you must.

But you may be believed not.

Potent Power

by Morgan

Potent Power

.

Words
Like a Pallet of Paint to Bedeck a barren canvas with Depths otherwise Unknown,
Stand Ready to unmask me.
Call I then upon their Potent Power to Speak for me in Tongues
I would otherwise be ignorant of, and let them Spill Out in Endless Fashion
That, by some means as I may be incapable of,
Tell the Secret Truth about my Heart of Hearts.
Listen, then, with an Attent ear so each word may Fulfill its Purpose.
Give over the Admiration of an accusing mind to the Power of these pawns,
Which now I use so grossly to Unfold myself
And Muse upon this Dilemma, so Beguiling of nature.

Echo

In the Spiraling Depths of Time,

Beyond the Chaos of Life Surrounding,

An Echo Peals,

Like Lark’s Song at Daytide,

Calling to All,

Singing for One.

Dangerous Things

by A. Marie

Chitin dreams are shredded under foot, and scars
With crooked knees slowly make their way down the road.

Limping, with coat collars pulled high to cover up their chins,
Their lips, their delicate seeds of hope they keep balanced

Upon the palm of their tongues, so they continue. Continue reading

Remnant of Summer

I caught in the air

A remnant of summer

and remain with me as

Painted

by Jem Croucher

20160924_152345

The day began with sunshine
so I popped down to the beach
armed with paints and brushes
and a long pole for to reach
the top bit of the beach hut
as it needs a lick of paint
It took me several hours
but a craftsman I just ain’t Continue reading
