Where’s God?

by Harry

Submitted by Bo Bestvina

.

I don’t find God in the pretty things
So I’ll pass on the bright lights
And glistening teeth

I don’t find God
In performances of consumption
Or in unapproachable beauty and youth

Something Happened

by Harry

Submitted by Michael A. Walker

.

Pulled from the earth on the cusp of sunrise
A breath of life gushes to the realm
Sent amidst a civil uprising among civilities
Something Happened, light refuse lights of distinct

King on peace shot to eternal peace visualizes
Lights reunite to learn aright
Something Happened, renown of old still opposes
Assumption of favour blinds the brightest of lights

Serving honourably on a broader plain coherently
Marching to a rhythm of one beat Happened
Seven finalizes the journey, civil starts anew
Crow lightly seasoned still the flavour of some..

Two scores and six and still under this dark cloud
Some thinks a curse of storms to avoid acquaintance
Methinks a cloud of witnesses urging onward
Those afore sojourning similitude before crossing over…

Sand

Submitted by Peter M Burns
.

Sand; Sculptures in history,
It absorbs time, blood and man.
Can hold its breath while the tide
Refreshed,
Waved, and caressed the land.

STRAY DOG

by Harry

Submitted by Gunadevi Rajaratnam

Stray Dog they called him,
Got chased away when he came near,
Until they saw his great deed,
He was not treated well.

Broken Love Doll

by Harry

Submitted by Samnessofself

.

At the worst times.

Feeling discarded like a broken doll.
Waited forever to pour out my soul,

Waited forever for the one.
Waited forever for the dream,
Dream feels so distant, yet so close.

But half in sight,

Half of me might find bliss this I see.

Half fights seemingly endlessly, will it be worth it?

Self speaks of letting half go for now,

Then I refuse.

LONGING…

by Harry

Submitted by touchstone65

.

All are silent now
Tattooed Moon peeping through clouds,
Insane memory
strange winds…

Close your ravaged eyes
Forgotten innocent childhood
Uncertain hour of silence
Loneliness strangled in the wind…

I’ve fallen in Love with every thought of you

by Harry

Submitted by zaroffpoetry

.

You’re scent is gone now
gravity kicks me to the floor
far, far away from the knocker on my broken burgundy door
you’re punk rock image
strings unplayed
black leather jacket and fishnets foraging
you’re jagged style stapled to the wall
posters of the preachers with lyrics to preach
swinging switchblades in the mirror
drunk on white pills from blister packs in the mind
image junkie saviour shaking
savour the time we had
make me a disciple in the temple that is you
you’re eyes blue as the clearest skies
clouds beaten to death in a back narrow ally way
long walks down Kyoto roads
you’re too much of a shut in sometimes
bicycle rides under a green canopy of trees
metal mesh wire fence to cage you in
with but a single word singing
break the worlds crumbling
bleed the sun from magma red
harvest a rise in me
golden as the scarecrows sour face
scythe in shaking hands
loaded gun gone off the deep end
8 foot counting and drowning
grating grains of horror at the witching hour
you’re my witch, i’m your hour
percent by volume is never high enough
winged German gypsy
granting wishes and dreams
tearing from your own feathers exposes tattoos
falling faster from the darkness that chases
rolling up my white cuffs and sleeves
it’s going to be a long night

He Knows

The sheer beauty
Isn’t in her clothes, no
It’s in secrets she holds
The ones held close
In the fibbers of her soul
Rarely ever exposed,

She is the one

by Harry

You are an ordinary lady,
With traces of beauty on your face
But plenty in your heart.
I run my hands over the lines on your face,
which were formed due to years of taking care of me.

Emergence

This eternal quest
For what, I am still unaware
I turn in all directions
Tentative steps in new paths
Paths leading where?
Paths I never knew were there.

We sailed upon a ship

by Harry

Submitted by terrybalmain

.

We sailed upon a ship that left Nantucket
wasn’t much of a ship was a bit of a bucket
but the wind was blowing, the sails were full
so was the captain and so was the crew
the time we left America bound for Circular Quay.

I know you would never be mine
You are only mine for a moment

Ride before that timeless joy is missed.

bring back so many memories

by Harry

Submitted by Jay Martin

.

to see you brings back so many memories
all I ever wanted was to be with you
in your eyes I was only for the moment

as the years past I often thought of you
and one day here you are again

by Harry

Submitted by aparna_097

.

You are an ordinary lady,
With traces of beauty on your face
But plenty in your heart.
I run my hands over the lines on your face,
which were formed due to years of taking care of me.
You pull me to an embrace.
I feel the warmth of the summer, care of the autumn and joy of the spring.
At that moment, I know I’m home.

Burning Star of Love

by Harry

Submitted by Samnessofself

.

Man and women, we are like stars our light is bright and the other
just wants to jump inside!
We are hot like a furnace, smouldering over with love for the others
embrace.
Or a are we like moths to the flames!
Born of some other sun, embellished in some other reign.
Or are we as children of god and as flames do, as these flames do,
do we merge brighter unified?

tattered soul

by Harry

Submitted by kevin Simms

As she stood perched like a bird in a tree
An unsuspected felling fell over me
I don’t know if it’s the shyness in her eyes
Or the affection in her heart
But I need to capitalize before I depart

Crystal Staircase

by Harry

Submitted by Tanique Huddleston
.

When we were younger
We used to always say how much we couldn’t wait to grow up
“Glo up” they say
Pick ya ttittes up
Throw on that “freak em” dress
And “slay” they say..

“Slow down” Mami would preach
Langston Hughes would teach
“Life for me ain’t always been no crystal staircase”..
And yet here we are
Staring life in the face
Wishing we knew then
What we know now

dam your heart, so filled with tears of wanton passion,
but when she has that begging look, a frightened hue.

FOR I SEE

by Harry

Submitted by Wendell A. Brown

Can you pray to Me speaking honestly
That in your heart you truly love Me?
When you hate your brothers and sisters
I cannot see how this has come to be

Can you tell Me that you love Me
when in your heart I alone do see
the hatred which you hold for others
with such a true flagrant animosity
