Tinkering with locks: busting open

’63 VW

by Alanna

I have the heart & soul

of a ’63 VW Bug

In my youth

A steady warrior of the road

But now

A purring antiquity

That prefers the slow lane

Chapel Creak


Bagged up belief; crushed in ice

A law to itself; bulging and squeezing

Certain not pleasing; growing in the water

Begging for attention

When I ignored it

It crept into the kitchen of my mind

Contrasts, a big pond & an affinity

by Jem Croucher

As a rule you will find me
surrounded by green
I’m often the nicest place
you’ll have seen

The winter skies are
blue/grey and bright
The reflection of snow
glimmers by night

Poem of the Day – Talking dripping riddles

by paturnerlee

Talking dripping riddles


Flash photography driven:

Reflecting black window vehicles

Cynical plywood fantasies wouldn’t be an issue

As tissue damp with rain from broken gutter spreads mustard seeds burning.

Poem of the Day – Bloated Sea

by paturnerlee

Bloated Sea


Chuckle at winter thoughts; turning to Spring

Singing songs that mean more to mermaids than shells

Telling tales to whispering winds.

Things in bell towers ringing; true to the sun.

Poem of the Day – AHTUF PATROL

by paturnerlee



Stale crusts, broken from edges of time:

Dry ripped and bitten.


Sitting in windows bleating

Whistling tunes to bar telling salesmen

Selling chisels for cleverly accounting wizards.

Scraping juice frozen on glass topped mountains.

Lining the out of body experience

In certain decision making appearance

We part in heart breaking silence

Poem of the Day – Bucket Lump

by paturnerlee


Bucket Lump




Piles of pockets torn;


Crushing crest fallen penance


Because we dreamed of picked out harmonies


Charming trees that whistle in the wind:


Tunes with meaning.

Poem of the day – Absolute

by paturnerlee



Freezing, captured; falling for a crest of a wave

To stay: in wind curling white as the crinkled lace curtain flutters

Stained with yellow time

Felled because the inside is rotten

Forgotten the impact of a decision

Banked up buildings of soaking sand

Crumble in warm shallow pools of crushed ideas

A mere step away from the edge of the cliff

Poem of the Day – Bell String

by paturnerlee

Bell String


Trawling levels of sand filled paper cups from stolen ships

Trips to the heart

A start of a new beginning; singing and dancing tunes

Balloons floating high to burst over purple shivering seas

Pleased to be in harmony

Happy World Poetry Day!: An Homage to William Wordsworth

by scatterednotebooks

Ah, once again, there they go,
a slight roll of the eyes
and a recoil from something foul,
but we know – you and I –

but most I’ve met in daily life
react with mild disdain

Poem of the Day – Broken Steam

by paturnerlee

Broken Steam


Slaves to dreams, to memories; to fallen friends

Or were they just companions: overtly closed hearted, hiding

Residing in the world of pain; the strain of reason

A seasonal challenge

Poem of the day – Round the Oval

by paturnerlee

Round the Oval


Greased tin

Silver tongue soliloquies;

Wrapped around a vowel to spur on the empty headed

An assertive enquiry from the lift attendant.

the last match

by Stephen Fuller

in my hand
i hold a match
the last match
from the box
dare me to light it
see what will burn
your soft lips
surround my dare
contain the fire
inside and invite
residual heat
