I am desert

by Dave

I am desert
Young still, the song of rain and
grass still coursing deep
in shrinking veins, underground.
The thunder of hooves, buffalo
and killers in pursuit,
carried over warming pelt.

Zed

I’ve reached the end of A to zed
with something every day
A poem for the alphabet
in my own special way
I’ve exercised a license
as we poets often do
But I’d like to think the end result
has been encouraging for you Continue reading

My nose aglow knows if in the rose below it goes and froze and goes and blows flowing, blowing, growing shows my glowing nose not to “goes” in the rose!

Poem of the Day — Flick of the Eye

by paturnerlee

Flick of the Eye

 

Spread between sea and glue: blades a running

Through soft white meadows burnt in chilled winds sorrow.

Tomorrow a word, maybe remembered, for gritted teeth are crumbling.

Slice of a moon, sight for staggering lies. Continue reading

I heard her voice
In the dark
Calling.
Second choice,
Half heartedly made,
Left dangling on
A string,
Waiting.

Anesthesing reality
Leaving naught but

Slowly filling

The Lamplight Hours

by A. Marie

This is the lamplight: men in shredded jeans.
Men with holes in them, and the cool air.

Disciples of midnight blue
Take to the streets, and give motion
To the stillness, rolling shopping carts and hot
Ravings and slamming cars doors,
Full of bluster. Continue reading

A Pinch of Hope

by erhynireh

hope


I am immobilized
Forced to witness a crime
Tried to open my mouth
But words doesn’t seem to come out

Shattered dreams, broken hopes
I doubt if I could ever cope
My heart, soaked with blood
Holding the tiniest sanity I have

I want to shout
My silence is deafening as it gets loud
Tears blinded my eyes, is this my price?
Watch in horror, live in fights? Continue reading
