The silver sea

by Jem Croucher

Stood and looked out on
a shining silver sea
the far horizon deep and blue
and beckoning to me
It was cold there on the shingle
Winter’s grip an iron chill
But the sunshine on the water
was good and vibrant still

His Sweet Voice

by Easter Ellen

When I’m so far down that I can’t see light

I slip so easily to that pit without fright

When the day disappears and there’s only night

I cry out to hear Your sweet sound

Ice Eyes

by Harry

Submitted by   Pasithea AnimaLibera

.

I look into your eyes for warmth
but all I see is a piece of drifting ice.

I control myself trying not to lose my mind
but darling holding you is my vice.

So here I am showing you pieces of me hoping you realize
but you show me there’s no forever just melting ice.

Writer’s block

by Megha's World

“Biting my truant pen, beating myself for spite:
“Fool!” said my muse to me, “look in thy heart, and write.”
― Philip Sidney, Astrophel and Stella

kelly-sikkema-401675

When you hit a wall
a big wall;
which breaks your convictions
and shatters it all
that big wall of
angst, pain, and insecurity
which mocks your artist
and its withering creativity

Mermaids

by A. Marie

Men only love us
when they need us, women dip
their babies in, Nereids seeking
to scale their children in armor;
we, ugly selkies, melusines, mer
maids and lads who swim in
black waters, we cannot breathe
the light, merely claw and scrape
at the tops of waves, legs
greeting us with nets and offerings –

Two little pigeons

by Jem Croucher

Two little pigeons
after some food
I’ve got a flat white
don’t mean to be rude
But no little morsels
have I to give you
so away pesky pigeons
‘Be off with you. Shoo!’

Reward:

by Harry

Submitted by thereckoning12

.

Enrolling in the clubs, groups and organizations.

Membership has its privileges, they say, eyes glowing with the hungry stare of zombies

wanting to skip along in sync with the group.

They search for power in numbers

Hoping for anonymity and shelter from the truth

But the numbers aren’t enough to crowd out the lies

that crush and maim their natural purity.
