by Bhavya Prabhakar, India

“Love is the way messengers

from the mystery tell us things.


Love is the mother

we are her children.


She shines inside us,

visible-invisible, as we trust

or lose trust, or feel it start to grow again.”

Into The Wild
            Blue Yonder
Or A Forest
            Dark And Deep
With A Canopy
            Of Stars Above
There’s No Need
            For Counting Sheep

but not the will to think

wanting to just wait and see

and hide behind a drink

Tyranny of the To Do List

by pranabaxom

Wrote this poem about three years back but did not post in my blogsite till recently.

Fear and persecution
Of the incomplete to-do-list,
Keeps me awake at night,
Robbing me of my beauty sleep.

Embody All

by KeiB

One with the elements
That is the goal
Body, mind
Spirit and soul

Burning, I whisper and cry out your name
Enticed by the false St. Elmo’s flame

Sunday Poem: Reason

by Elizabeth

There is a reason…

To be here

To follow this path

To go ahead

To see what need to be seeing

To do what should to be done

Why do we fall?

by roopesh

Step by step we move,
Trying to reach the destiny
we fear to lose.

Path starts to get enlightened
With the blaze set on loose,
Fearing the fire, we start to hesitate.

Seasons of life

by Michelle Sherlock

blue skies on a cloudy day, green trees and grass

Blue skies on a cloudy day

Bright colours scatter gray

Fluffy white clouds gather

And dissipate

Form shapes then ebb away

Chased by sunlight across the sky

What do you see?

by Michelle Sherlock

What do you see poem.  Photo of a very large tree with a broken branch forming an archway and a little girl looking up

When you look at me

What do you see?

Is it me or a tree?

Is it the me you want me to be

Or the me I’m going to be?

Is it the me that is

Or the me that always will be

Or is it you through me?

In Memory of a Butterfly

by Venkat









This colorful butterfly was sadly found dead…

In this world, left behind
May this memory remain
Of beauty, worldly bind
Of love, unspoken pain

Were we destiny?
Or were you just my fate boy?
Did I walk away?

Of Life

by Devina


What is this phenomena

Man has pondered upon

Across time

This mysterious force

Still confounds us

Like how simple things elude us

Its purpose is also hideously uncomplicated

But at the same time convoluted

What is life

But a chance

A gift

A blank canvas

With a palette

And a paint brush

Thrust into our hands

At the very instant

Of our existence

For us to paint our destinies

change – haiku

by billgncs

leaves can but fall
leaving bare what was unknown
duty, destiny
