System

by scatterednotebooks

Awkward, accusatory and dooming,
Lie the letters, staring, glaring.
Painfully pointing fingers, from the fatal
Hand of society, chip away the self.

Soulmates

by Jem Croucher

Poetry Challenge: Valentine Poem

First selfie - on board the Spirit – Version 2

Cupid’s arrow may for most
be secret on this day
when anonymity prevails
in messages we say
But for me the message is the same
with thirty-eight cards done
‘I love you more and more each year
For me there’s only one’

Standing together, husband and bride.

ONE HEART
By R. Saint Claire

Loving center and corporeal home,
A fused join at two chambers meeting,
Sacred symbol of the love I own,
And emblem of my life’s completing.

True Love

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.

Submitted by Katharyne

.

The sun shines through the leaves.
The bird birds sing merrily.
I see him in my dreams.
He says he loves me.

Tell me, what is true love?
My full, fluttering heart
grows wings like a dove.
Storms tear this love apart.

Magic

by Joel Kravitz

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.

.

It is something in which I would like to believe,
Despite being the fine art of how to deceive.
The incantations say “Love Is Grand,”
But hearts can be broken by sleight of hand.

A poem for valentine’s Day

by Harry

Submitted by Tsegaye Tessema Tola

.

I dreamed as if I will cheer my love- Habtish
In that dream I saw my angles’ hands on the dish
I stretched my hands and could not reach out to feed my kids
My sweet love constantly looks into my eyes in that dream and I into hers
How wondrous is that dream pulling my neck all that long to her lips for a kiss.

Recognizing Reality

by frankhubeny

Poetry Challenge: Valentines Poem

If I should see an angel on a dish
About the size of any mid-sized fish,
I hope I’d be inclined to hesitate
Before I eat what’s on that dinner plate.

LOVE SONNET

Bright twinkle of stars and warmth of the sun,
Flotillas of clouds in Heaven’s fresh air,
Dark battles through which the brave hero becomes,
To all things amazed, my lover compares.

A NEW YEARS BLESSING

by Harry

Poetry challenge: New year poem

Submitted by W.H.Brown.

May the hand of our Lord always guide you
May His tender love daily anoint your heart
May the peace of His heaven fill your world
As this New Year’s breath begins to start

May His grace in your mind be steadfast
May the light of His Spirit fill your face
May you never again feel any loneliness
As you live daily in His loving embrace

Another Year

by The Poetry Channel

Poetry challenge: new year poem.

.
Here we are
at another artificial
division,
arbitrary distinction,
in the flow’s design.
An abstraction we experience
linearly
punctuated by episodic
circumstances
playing themselves out
over time.
Some,
heartbreakingly painful,
such as loves lost,
others, utterly sublime.
