Fires

by Venkat

Fires, they blew sirens
Stones, uncreased in prayer
Fences, in unfolded black
Leaves, trace crude airs

Keeping me whole

by Jem Croucher

Listening to sounds
when it’s raining outside
I can often get carried away
Spine tingles freely
My element comes
and contentment comes for the day

The Trip

The early start
the silent hour
the wind outside a-moan
The ticking clock
the coffee hot
the time to leave from home

‘Till Breath Do Us P(f)art

by Rhyme In Time

My darling doth a perfume send
Each time she whispers from her end.
While I, when little spritz let fly,
Convert our room to stinky sty.

This windy paradox I’ll never break;
Far better just to smile and nod, preventing further quake.

Particularly Sunday

by Jem Croucher

Don’t have a problem
with most days
They fly by when I’m busy
though sometimes
when there isn’t time
I might get in a tizzy

Ends or Turns?

About to reach

the end of my path

the end that I for long

longed for.

Of rust and gold

by Jem Croucher

And to these days
when all I hold
is flecked with rust
or painted gold
I know which of
these I prefer
So to the gold
I will defer

Devolving Winter

by John S

I lingered to watch the snowfall settle
upon an outside marble pedestal –
building layer-on-layer of snowflake and ice,
fractal and spacious, this echelon

Overwhelmed by absence..

by Sandeep

Picture Courtesy: Felipe Correia

I stand here

Overwhelmed; With what,

I don’t know!

You make me feel

Mysterious about something.

There is nothing about you

I am not aware of,

Yet all of you

Seems unknown.

Tragic!

Who am I?

With you, suddenly I don’t know myself.

Your presence has brought me

To my absence!

Is that why I am overwhelmed?!

They must be laughing

by Jem Croucher

They must be laughing up in Norway
or in Canada you know
at the fuss we make in England
when we have a little snow

Sides they must be splitting
Out in Russia, Moscow way
as our headlines speak of chaos
caused by snow that fell today

All is white

by Jem Croucher

I wrap up warm
against the cold
I feel it now
I’m getting old
There’s white on
everything around
The air is crystal
n’er a sound.

They said there’d be snow

by Jem Croucher

They said there’d be snow
Well, its cold enough
and there’s frost over all every day
But the sea air down here
on these southern shores
always seems to get well in the way

Yes, there have been falls
which have settled for days
in the past I remember quite well
But it’s still quite a rarity
for us in these parts
when snow of the settling kind fell

All embracing us..

by Sandeep

Picture Courtesy: Anja Buehrer

I raise my arms and rise your wings.
You fly and I take a flight.
We are a being, two in form.
Our experience of pristinity isn’t distinct.
Mesmerized, as we both are,
Your silence knows my tears.
