A Going All In To Not Go All Out Limerick 1.1

by Joel Kravitz

trump supporters cliff

Trump announced that he is willing to spend his own money on the presidential campaign. “Whatever it takes. We have to win. This is the most important election in the history of our country,” he said. That may be the only thing that he has said about the campaign that is true. It certainly is the most important election in the history of the country for him. Continue reading

Five in the morning

by Jem Croucher

Five in the morning
September, still dark
and as usual midweek
I’m up with the lark
The world is still silent
the night not yet done
though a tinge in the East
shows the morning has come

With the sun upon my brow

by Jem Croucher

I’d like to go out walking
but need legs to get me there
and as one’s out of action
and I don’t have a spare
I’m having to make do
with sitting with a smile
as a hobble and a limp is all
I’ll manage for a while

Holes from voles

Not a rat, nor mouse, nor mole

But a vole

September sunshine

by Jem Croucher

An hour of gorgeous sunshine
before the clouds come by
and hide again the golden globe
is perfect where I lie
It’s just enough to heal an ill
or chase some blues away
so I’m hoping that I’ll see some more
on each September day

Rocks and shins and A&E

by Jem Croucher

August Bank Holiday Monday
sun is shining and it’s warm
so to the beach I should be heading
as you would ‘cos it’s the norm
Yet instead I sit in A&E
my leg still causing pain
Not my first choice I’ll admit
to be in here again
Strangely though it was the beach
just last Wednesday night
where I sustained the injury
the reason for my plight

Serenity

by Frank Hubeny
Blue on blue with patient blue
Caressing me and also you.
But should you say it’s red instead
Insisting that I bumped my head,
Perhaps you’re right. Perhaps that’s true,
But I still see a pretty blue.

Mexico

by Venkat

moments they grow thick
deep pauses in mind
of fresh Nopal, the Mexican pink

held in a temper of love
fills this cupful of heart
in green, white and red
with sublime sounds

Daisy II

by Jem Croucher

Wild daisies in the field
caught a moment there
whimsical they capture
a thing I had to share
So I got down to their level
as that seemed the thing to do
to take this lovely picture
which I’m sharing here with you

A Can Good Overcome Evil? Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

And what makes it especially chilling is that this Evil is supported by Evangelical Leaders and people who profess to be Christians yet do not live their lives in accordance with the teachings of Jesus. The truth is that they can not accept the Truth – that Love is the Answer and Good will Triumph over Evil. Continue reading

A Forest In The Distance

by thom amundsen

Walking through he woods

stepping with care

the brush up to my knees,

conscious of thistles, the mud, perhaps

even catching an ankle in a vine

letting a branch scrape open forearms,

perhaps slamming my forehead

taking a fall,

on rocks that lay clean

without disturbance nearly a century.

~

That occasion does arise,when the forest

remains deep in our mind,

as we navigate the confusion

in our lives,

this such is a mechanical lifestyle,

giving less credence to

the metaphysical nature of why it is,

why we are,

what the struggle means

to find our way,

the path of a chosen prophecy.

~

That epiphany I was compelled to imagine

as a child, that revelation remains in the woods

carrying upon itself the eyes of a heart and soul.

for brunch with our children
and pleasure to seek

Perils of Pretense

I grew tired of the mundane

The everyday insane:

As they stand

Upon podiums of pretense

Pontificating falsehoods

Lining lying lips…O’Prunty

Thursday the third

by Jem Croucher

it might shine, it might rain
but one thing’s for certain
that this third again
will not be repeated
it’s a one-off, unique
which we’ll not find again
wherever we seek

After the storm

by Jem Croucher

After the storm
on the beach the tideline
has made its mark on the stones
with seaweed lines
drawn free and wild
a calming now atones

For all last night
its temper raged
a tantrum fierce and wild
yet now it smiles
calm and serene
the sea and weather mild
