above playful cause within
the order of cetaceans –
strokes of teal skim waters

Into:

Submitted by loppolouie



Into a time
Into a space out of mind.
A kind encouraging word.
Into a test of the immortal.
Into an alley called “this street ends here”

Night falls fast

by Dave

Night falls fast
as drizzle drains
the last lethargic light
from an ink and marble sky.

A woeful winter waste
of dry electric heat and light,
returns the ragged vision
of a minor moon.

The dread of dim dank
entrapped evenings
haunts the commute
home.

Two gulls and a fine morning

by Jem Croucher

20160726_072717

Two gulls perched on beach huts
facing out to sea
and as I passed by on my bike
they turned to look at me
I bade them a ‘Good Morning’
and I’m pretty sure that they
said same in seagull language
as I hurried on my way Continue reading

A moment of peace

by Harry

Submitted by Paul


There is barely a cloud in the sky
Hardly a breath of wind
The sun beats down relentlessly
I look for shade, somewhere cooler
You laugh and tell me the heat is great
I scowl
A butterfly settles close by
Oblivious to you and I
We are invading it’s space
Visitors, that is what we are
Soon we will be gone
Moved on to somewhere new

Losing you

by Dave

I waste
winter’s waning days,
sorting symbols of passing.

Decks of death cards, dealt-
diamonds down
to hide your face. Continue reading

Delicate Ambition

Of overkill, to spread
The self so thin

Gleaming

by Jem Croucher

20160726_071640

Early morning sunrise
on the river smooth and flat
So I had to pause a while
and take a photograph of that
The boats of Shoreham harbour club
Hulls gleaming in the sun
Resplendent here this morning
on a day that’s just begun Continue reading

The Leaf

by Anita Lubesh

for leaf poem.jpg

Slow motion’s gentle
breath is on the breeze;
shivers of tantalising
promises deftly stroke
light hearted manner
at play,

lifting skirts for sun
to find faith in greenery
suspended from charm.
Youthful, tenacious,
innocence and naive,
hand span characteristics,
hide in clenched fists,

A million eyes stare out
Arachnidal hatred,
Vile longing
To enter inside
Consuming me from
The inside,

Her words see
Me,
Accepted and loved,
Through them
My soul feels
Her hands,
And I’m
Warm.

A soliloquy in a midsummer night’s dream!

by Sandeep

“Lies have become your character,
Taking over from truth,
Which was your nature.

Truth is there,
Hidden by your lies,
Behind your lies:
Lies that you have cultivated,
Some that you know,
Subtly, playing right in front of your eyes.
Some still unknown,
For lies aren’t easy to pick,
Especially, when you have drowned in them,
And so you miss.

Home

Cicadas yelling in the bushes

Sunset of coral-tinged clouds

Damp air like breathing through

Wet gauze.

Home. Or nearly.

A “Know Thyself and Know Thy Reality” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

In keeping with the Know Thyself theme of the last limerick, I came up with this one while thinking about what a most interesting and challenging soon to be sixty four years I have had. Back in the summer of 1967 when I listening to The Sgt. Pepper album over the loud speaker while I was having the time of my life at Camp Conestoga, I could never have imagined what a ride it was going to be from 15 to 64…and I have a pretty vivid imagination.

A mile in treads

Stairs & Visions

by A. Marie

Swinging
gondolas on
the sea, we rock,
are swept, into the
roll and run and ring of

dream.

We are unsure of what can and cannot be;
we place our wishes down and wait. Continue reading

Turning wheels

by Jem Croucher

DSCN6140

Now that it’s full summer
and Southern Rail has lost the plot
I thought I’d get back on the bike
and cycle whilst it’s hot
I leave in early morning
when the dawn has just arrived
and everything is quiet
and the peace is not contrived. Continue reading
