I Was A Horse

by HemmingPlay

cropped-the-leap-into-the-unknown.jpgI woke up this morning from a dreamy grey half-sleep
with the February rain dripping off the eaves.
A memory floated by that in a previous life
I was a horse. No question.
A big, brown horse with
soft, knowing eyes. I had been abandoned

Within a Dream

by Ex Libris Regina


Within a dream the voice is real:
A shrill, struggling song.
A door in the floor, I open it
Unafraid and follow the sound.
A secret tunnel spirals underground;

Melodious Rhyme

(Please enhance the poem by listening to the music while reading.)


Words Spun through willowy Time



In Harmonious Rhyme

December 27, 2016


by A. Marie

To keep a body inside the ribs of a behemoth roaming
along the shores, we question this, this dying within
a larger shifting breathing form. And this,

this rolling, this captivity, amongst the innards
of a faceless creature; with frequent gasping and clutching
we tarry, and hurry along the tongue-like road.

Saturn Peering through His Ring, Dreaming in the Dark

by A. Marie

Ten thousand one wings in the lion’s ring,
Holy and houndish in pursuit from mountain;
Trembling are the shadows of the dogdayed age,
Widowed from the Summerland, adieu.

Enter, if you dare,
My dreams’ dungeon of despair:

Of Folded Dreams

How Can We Get To Sleep Each Roaring Night?

by A. Marie

What is the What?
Who is the Who?
When is the When?
Where will I lay my head and rest?

How is a misnomer
Each time I crack an egg,
Each time I fry its yoke,
Its slither down my throat,
My turn in the game of consumption
And conquest.

Shake your head and say Silence only

Mocking the face of the day with Phantoms

Of what I might have said

What You may have Whispered;

I Cried A River Over You

by irinadim



I cried a river over you
For years and years and years
Until all the tears had dried up

The river bed is parched ground now
Dying a slow death
Yet yearning for life
Yearning for tears
But my tears won’t come

The Muse Speaks

In the Echoes of Night

When Shadows are Silent sentinels

And Whispers Sing in Ethereal Light.

Potent Power

by Morgan

Potent Power


Like a Pallet of Paint to Bedeck a barren canvas with Depths otherwise Unknown,
Stand Ready to unmask me.
Call I then upon their Potent Power to Speak for me in Tongues
I would otherwise be ignorant of, and let them Spill Out in Endless Fashion
That, by some means as I may be incapable of,
Tell the Secret Truth about my Heart of Hearts.
Listen, then, with an Attent ear so each word may Fulfill its Purpose.
Give over the Admiration of an accusing mind to the Power of these pawns,
Which now I use so grossly to Unfold myself
And Muse upon this Dilemma, so Beguiling of nature.

The Touch of His Mighty Hand

by 50djohnson


Dear Heavenly Father, into your presence we come, as we call on You today.

Christians calling out to You to guide with Your anointing as we pray.

Praying for close communion, understanding of desire for this so deep within,

Rejoicing when His desires become our desires, true joy replaces chagrin,

I Thought We’d Have More Time

by 50djohnson



I don’t know why I have to keep learning this same lesson over and over.  Having someone you love die suddenly makes you ask yourself the question,” Why didn’t I tell them how I felt?” The answer is because

carved in by
snotty daydreams, caving
longings, a sweat stain
by a beached mermaid on the mattress.
Noting every

A Teacher’s Heart of Gold

A Teacher’s Heart of Gold

The first day of school is special each year as I look up and down each row.

Looking at  new supplies, new shoes, new clothes, what is most important doesn’t show.

Within minutes, they show you who is the brightest star…

It’s also very evident who carries the deepest scars.

The one who didn’t eat breakfast sits quietly at their desk

Finding it hard to wake up and concentrate on the simplest of tests.

Let This Poem Remember Me

by A. Marie

Let this room remember me. Let it fill with my scent.

The scent of valerian root, chardonnay, the air of musk and smoke,
damp moss upon the old tombstone, the wet sapling pine.

The late evening sun is the day’s last attempt to sway me.
She spills her warmest rays over the peacock rug, subjugates herself and genuflects
over the altars, over my desk and kitchen countertop.

Abstract Nonsense

“Somewhere the people care”

He said to the train.

So the driver gave him a book

Do As Youth Does

We don’t know

The hell in which

Youth and laughter


We don’t care

For the life

You claim,

We need air.

A mile in treads

by Colly


I walked a mile that no one knew

that no one knew that no one knew

I walked a mile that no one knew

except a few except a few.

Teaches my heart that All is Possible,
All is Ready Standing, Waiting upon my own Acceptance,
My own Belief, my own Unfettering Faith
To Set Free the wheels of the universe
And Create my Heart’s Desire;

Stairs & Visions

by A. Marie

gondolas on
the sea, we rock,
are swept, into the
roll and run and ring of


We are unsure of what can and cannot be;
we place our wishes down and wait.

The Summer/Winter Affair

by A. Marie

I kiss the summer, her gold neck
hung as a crescent in my hand. But

I am false; when night descends,
I dream of winter and her snowy bends.

Woman in the Japanese Zen Gardens

by A. Marie

Pollen breaks like water against your neck,
the garden hydrangea shifting beneath your tender caress.

I believe I have seen you someplace. Seen you
waltzing through the flames and the ghosts of the Downtown Proper.
