Poetry for Poets

by Jem Croucher

Some words have nuance
others structure
which at point
or other juncture
appear to us through
inspiration
combining then
in aggregation

Yesterdays

by Zenei

I am re-visiting the past today,
just like I did yesterday,
And I am sure to go back tomorrow,
To be with dear people I know,
In places which no longer exist,
To relive experiences missed,
To assess and blush, laugh or frown,
Sometimes even let a tear down,
To celebrate, dispute, regret and yield,
Maybe have a few wounds healed.
In these stories that are forever set,
I dig and find old dreams and men dead.
I quest for the slightest chance,
For so much has changed in a glance,
to comfort myself.

Pining for summer

by Jem Croucher

So, winter has me in its grip
and won’t let go right now
Her cold and icy fingers
spider-like across my brow
Shivering, I try to smile
and brave the worst of it
But winter’s not what I’m about
and never seems to fit

We can go hand in hand

by Harry

Submitted by Katherine Shipp
.
We can go hand in hand
into the heart of the woods.
Our home is bereft
of holly and spruce;
let’s go into the heart of the woods.
We will gather up gladness
and bring home a holiday mood.

Seamless Tapestry

by Harry

Submitted by zaroffpoetry

PT Cruisers fuse
through time
the now El Caminos
pullin’ through casinos
valets sort those wooden panels
into tidy lines
Licking gas pump handles
like supermodels
crossing divided highways
on wings
prayers
gas fumes

‘VIETNAM SOLIDER’

by Harry

Submitted by Keturah Yisrael
.

To the world in this time
Vietnam was on everyone’s mind
My Dad was young and very brave
in Vietnam his friends he saved
This war was long, This war was hard
We lost our loved one’s near and far
Vietnam was far from home
some of the soldiers died alone

Soldiers

by A. Marie

And he blows his head open, because he is in the army; he does not
want to go back. He makes it clear.

I was his friend, when he was alive and in high school.
I am his friend again, now that he is gone and fading.

Be happy

by carareevablog

Happiness

It was my ego

That made me cry over you,

Get depressed over you,

And fuss because I wasn’t the reason for your happiness anymore

St Mary of the Harbour

by Jem Croucher

So, there’s already some words written
about me as I am today
But there’s more to make the story
complete in every way
For once I was much bigger
cruciform in shape
Part of Shoreham’s presence
on the Sussex south landscape

Gathering

by mkvecchitto

 

coffee-cup-mug-white-6296.jpg

It had been a while

since it was just us…


We gathered together —

a homecoming of sorts


                    It came upon a midnight clear

                    that glorious song of old

                    from angels bending near the earth

                    to play their harps of gold

Again, the Season To Be Jolly

by Rhyme In Time

Again, the season to be jolly?
Again upon us? How appalling.
I missed Black Friday’s online sales,
And visits to the mall are fails–
For gift certificates I’ll soon be trawling.
