Ode to the American Eagle

by Harry

Submitted by Ingeborg von Finsterwalde
 
 
Spread your wings famed American eagle
And soar over the land that has seen its share
Of beauty sorrow and great change
Fly into the rising sun and listen to the beat
Of morning drums on the hillside
Dive into the blue water and grasp the hapless fish
Unaware of your magnificent presence

The lady with the golden hair

Stood on the bridge with no fear

She waved at the cameras always so near

The screams of her fans were all she wanted to hear

Ages

by thehouseofbailey

In a crumbling house we gathered,
sat around the ancient fire.
Logs burnt slow in the hearth,
warmed our expectant hearts.
Firelight flickered in the darkening eve,
We gathered around the elders.
sat in large and comfy chairs.
Red light upon our faces.
We heard of times gone by,
and smelt the burning wood.
The shadows held safe the past,
we gathered them in our hearts.
We looked back upon times gone,
held hands and were content.
Drinking from the cup of seers,
our fears eased, to sleep we went.

In the waters of the Irwell
I see old but also new
A Manchester reflection
affords attractive view

Bordering the ancient banks
from an industrial past
Residential money means
the buildings here will last Continue reading

Sage Advice

by Rev Cheryl Birch

oldmanrockingchair

On vacation years ago on a 100 degree day in June
I was looking for something fun to do that afternoon
At the Tourist Info booth I stumbled upon a gnarly old man
He rocked back and forth in his chair; used his hat as a fan

I asked him what there was to do in his mountain town
He looked up at me and slowly knit his brow Continue reading

A British Sex, Mind Games and Tea Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

My girlfriend is British. And she is a hoot. She has that quirky British sense of humour and is capable of being quite cheeky, which means she is quite an utzer, a personality trait I am drawn too. http://wp.me/p2ukIm-Q6C Continue reading

Poem of the Day — Stuck in a Cage

by paturnerlee

Stuck in a cage
The wind blows outside, the rivets screwed into the floor rattle

Clouds jangle and merge and brush aside each other

My frozen heart clasps the gates shut

Shallow belief clasps the breast bone of pain tight against the lungs Continue reading

Growing Up

He stated it, I didn’t.
He called me names.
