Woodstock dances under the lights,
We did it all for fun,

by Harry

(A child talk to her mother and she is showing the brutality of world…along with some hope that everything will be fine…..)
(Then the child write this one.)
****************************
World where the mans are standing with their sniper,
I turned to my mom and just playing the piper;

All are here to dominate their power and pride,
But they don’t know they are making this world elide;

When i look in her eyes she leaves me in surprise,
That how can anyone be so patiently wise;

She said…..
When our shadows are taller than our souls,
It ia time to give a hang on our goals;;

From the silver ring
Held the secret
To a terrible truth.

Like a lost soul
From a deep sleep
In a dazzle
Of frizzle I keep

Flashbacks
Flashes of lights
In a blink of my eye
They blew me high

HIM

by Harry

Submitted by Mahin

.

roses and honeybees flourish when our breath mingles,
as his curls find my needy grip
his tough hands travel into my soft spots
merging his presence with mine,
an eternal high looks promising
next to the desire and greed he has of what is his,

Imagine-

You and I entwined

in another world

Where only moments exist in our minds,

And we must reach out and grasp

or never find

What we are searching for. Continue reading

Her Name Was December

Inspired by the name of a Matthew Mayfield song


Her name was December

she blew in with the last autumn leaves

swirling red, yellow and orange

‘round her head

She could be warm

like golden lights in a window Continue reading

Allure

The allure of the ocean
calls often to me
whenever I’m taken
away from the sea
So I have to return
as one does for a friend
as its magic and beauty
has no limit or end Continue reading

love is love

by Harry

Submitted by Allison Grayhurst

.

Love is love, full of thirst and suffering
but stronger still than
the devil’s lyre. Once
my world was a wound of sleepwalking
and intangible thoughts.
Today, there is a voice under the sheets
that has learned the language of my private choir.

Journeys End

by Harry

Name: সূর্য গুপ্ত

.

We walked a long way together the 2 of us

We shared a lot of time. We have done stuff ordinary things

Not worth talking about much less write it down

But not every journey can be forever. Sometimes we need to part.

We shouldn’t need to lie. You shouldn’t have to cry.

Past Is History, Not A Mystery

by Harry

Submitted by pranabaxom

.

For those that past is not history but a mystery

Anything that can’t be explained a miracle

At the drop of a hat those who are ready

To confer divinity to reformers of the past

But are ready to punish and instil fear of death

On the followers of reformers of modern age

Heretics and hearsay if you question the past

Are we to believe that everything modern is foolish

Heronswood

by A. Marie

I can walk the world in the Heronswood,
I can walk and talk with the horticulturists
and the nature gods. I can meet with cultures
I never knew, the Thalictrum, the Fuchsia,
the Phlox, the Hakonechloa. With my fingers
I can brush the Bishop’s Hat, with my toes Continue reading

Allotment II

by Jem Croucher

The allotment’s looking lovely
if I do say so myself
We’ve been doing lots of digging
‘Cos it’s quite good for our health
We’ve got some fruit trees growing
and have planted lots of seeds
And in between the watering
have been pulling up the weeds Continue reading
