Songs in Sand

by HemmingPlay

And still the waves
slip ashore,
singing their
conspiratorial whispers
between grains of sand.
The wind slides in
from the deep,
empty places,
haunted and lonely,
cold and clean
like a wet finger around

Feeling Umwelt

by HemmingPlay


Some days it’s all about limitations,
And while it’s no use complaining,
That’s never stopped me before.

I feel like a blind man living inside a kaleidoscope;
A glutton with but one taste bud left;
A monk who’s forgotten what he knew of God;
A tin-eared drunk waking up just as angels
burst across the heavens in song.
I’m a coma patient wrapped in wool,
strapped in a closet in a blackened room
in the back of the basement.

Everything is Dandy for the Dandelion

by tjtherien

Poetry challenge: Free verse.


During my residency in this abominable life
I have known the gruesome and the beautiful,
I have known the thrall of the flawless embrace…breathtaking
As I have known the sorrowful swell of heart cleaved from chest
I have known a precious few worthy and winsome people
And I am thankful for having known them
Because they have taught me the tangible lesson
That I contemplate in my solitude
Amid the myriad of superfluous and discombobulated thought
Scrumptious morsels of truth for the peckish mind grown plump on falsehood
I abandon the gospel of the pompous and the eminent
And the absurd squabble over what is right
What is proper about this world I have come to loath,
