So many things

are vulnerable to cold—

the cucumber’s crisp

and my sweet basil’s toes,

IMGP4244

And so the waiting’s finally over
the day is here at last
As I go walking with my brother
On the South Downs for a blast

It has to be yellow

by Jem Croucher

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What can I tell you of yellow
that’s not already been said?
Something of the pleasure it brings me
over orange or purple or red

Today the springtime yellow
is blossoming with youth
But winter’s icy fingers
Linger on and hide the truth

Verdant

Luxuriant this time of year
the grass is verdant green
And unless I am mistaken
looks the best it’s ever been

Underneath; the undertow

by Jem Croucher

sea 13

I always pictured quite a monster
lurking down below
Beneath the waves just waiting
but for what I didn’t know
And I never, ever saw it
though I was often in the sea
So I know one thing for certain
– it never bothered me

Out in the garden

Quiet & Unassuming

by Jem Croucher

DSCN2189

As a poet I find pleasure
in writing every day
Capturing a moment
about life in such a way
that when I read my words
back quietly on reflection
they take on board a meaning
to inspire with recollection

Broken Story

by krishnowornever

This story is not about you.
Or the way you make me feel.
This is not about your deceptions
Or your feelings that were never real.

Random Moments of a Heartbreaker

by krishnowornever

At that very moment,
I was at a loss for words.
I was baffled and confused.
My vision was blurred.

At that very moment,
I didn’t wanna hear
Your longings and sorrows
and things that you fear.

Love Me Like I’m Gone

by Tiffany Layne

I just wish you would love me
like you already know
That I would leave you twisted
If I decided to go
But you take me for granted
Because I’ve always been here
You refuse to acknowledge
That I could disappear
I could go chasing for love
That would make me dance in the rain
Or find a new reason
To smile Again

Rescue Me

by Tiffany Layne

Lord rescue me
From this lonely space I’m occupying
Can’t you see how hard I’m trying
To move on with all this pain.
Rescue me,
My heart’s broken beyond my own repair
All I can feel is a dark despair
I want to feel the light I used to see
Rescue me.

A Thousand Wishes Waiting

by Tiffany Layne

I sit and listen to those old songs
You used to sing when I was down
I can’t believe it’s been so long
Since I’ve seen you around

moments and infinities 

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

Let’s be happy today

Because today is a moment

We shall carve into history’s skin

So hold it within your palms

A drop of liquid gold sunshine

Trickling away to infinity

Glass beads on a necklace
Weaving a weeping tapestry
Fingers bird-boned, nimble

war

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

She was all of five years then
An age that should be spent
Begging her mother for stories
Or for the moon on a string
To tie up like a toy balloon
But all she asked over and over
Was if Daddy would be home soon

war is what happens when language fails
― Margaret Atwood

contradictions

by amongmyfrivolousthoughts

I want to shred off pieces
Of my own skin some times
To shrug it off like a coat
And become someone new
But I’m a wavering ocean

Alabama, Live

by Tiffany Layne

The crackle and pop of old vinyl,
Alabama, live, that’s what she played.
Yellow gloves up to her elbows,
Pledge, lemon, that’s what she sprayed.

REUNION

by Tiffany Layne

I’m not anything I thought I would be,
I don’t drive a Corvette or have a law degree.
I don’t spend my days lounging by water’s edge,
My house lacks crown molding and brushed nickel finishes.

Thinking of you….

by Tiffany Layne

I see our old friends all the time,
Online- looks like they’re doing fine
Posting pics of babies and first steps
Like they’re all living life with no regrets
I wonder if they’re ever holding back
they way I do
When I find myself
thinking of you….

2013 in review

by Harry

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 42,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Home Maintenance

by russtowne

Our lawns need mowing
A cobweb’s growing
A gate is sagging
Repairs are lagging
Shelves are dusty
A latch is rusty
A faucet leaks
Our hall floor creaks
Laundry’s piled on the floor
A broken knob is on a door
Our housekeeping is far from kept
But our home’s well maintained in some respects

Down With Freshly Pressed

by soad88

freshly_pressed-e1358791614698

Down with Freshly Pressed!
The dreaded popularity test
Bloody barons
Masked in blue
Judging me; judging you
Keeping everyone a fool
Dancing, pleasing, jesting too
Never known to be so cruel
Controlling gods of likes and follows
