An evening out

A manic day, rushing about
More emails in than emails out
Early start and finish late
Not denting much my full workstate Continue reading

Poem of the day– Frustration Passing

by paturnerlee

Frustration – Passing

I crash bonnets with bullets crying troubled stories of windswept landscapes

In my tent, barking with morning malice in jaw stretching repitition

Then I challenge visionary women clasping bar bra madness

Standing steady with pretty ringlets, calling shots in my minds eye a rough sea kaleidoscope. Continue reading

So Special

by Venkat


you are a bead, so special
strung amongst us, on this earth
half look below, on your footsteps
to follow the rhythm you set upon
the remaining half look up, above
by your inspiration, to see stars Continue reading

Passion Undone

by Peter Notehelfer

The old cherry tree
Too long gone unpruned
Greets spring without blossoms
The life is gone from all the limbs
Its branches snap brittle to the touch
All branches that is except for one
Which out of its sheer obstinacy
Shouts ‘passion undone’
To a heedless world

Two ‘somethings’

by Jem Croucher


I had two ‘somethings’, threw them high
watched them as they kissed the sky
Today was grey, but has been blue
and I’ve known it red and yellow too
First of summer here today
Though you’d never know from all the grey Continue reading

The Cobblestone Path

by jaybluepoems

Along this cobbled path I find a peace of mind beneath an arc of wooded shade that calms the day, grants a cool and welcomed dark.
The city, all but gone here, echoes histories’ whispered tones of carriages culled in laughter midst heavy hooves upon the stones.
No rush of time betrays this scene, as slowly drifts this path, eternal.
Horizon calls a timeless point where all resolves, green and vernal. Continue reading

Scales of perception

by bwal2014

Sitting amongst a city of clover,

Watching the bees lazily

Crawl over flower petals.

I exist on the bee’s scale.

A little league soccer game

Pedals through periods over

Miles and miles of prairies.

The King’s Disdain

by Harry

Submitted by Aditi Shinde

A vivid glimpse of a grey shadow,
A frail physique, breaking down into pieces..
Once a martyr walking down the dense reef,
Today he is left to mere ashes..

A mystery lies in his eye,
A tale beholds his journey..
Away from the capes and canyons,
Unheard lies his destiny..

Thank You for Inquiring About My Day

Thank You for Inquiring About My Day

      I fed the dog
After dawn
I filled my cup
with the sunrise
Next thing I knew
it was already 9:00
Feeling hungry I ate
a bowl of Cascades
covered in cream
down to the sea
which kept me
until noon 
      I watered the dog  Continue reading
