The Freedom to Live

by Abigail Gronway

Her life had overturned, become a sort of hell;
The devil lost her soul, but sought her mind to claim.
Once happy, now ensnared inside a secret cell,
Played by her tormenter as if it were a game.

A Dark Peace

by Abigail Gronway

I didn’t mean to be found there
huddled in the corner—
red face and swollen eyes
were to have been protected by
the darkness….

Yellow Butterfly (for Emma)

by S Francis

Every moment gives a gift
An opportunity to see
A yellow butterfly lands
On the pool deck to give
The daughter a smile
She seemed to have lost.

It’s a gull’s life

by Jem Croucher

“So, this wall in the sun
makes a great place to view
this town where we live
don’t you think, just us two?”

“You’re not wrong my friend
it’s a great place to be
down here by the river
not far from the sea”

I’ve A Friend Called Firefly

by Renwick Berchild

I’ve a friend I call Firefly, for reasons I’ve explained,
and we take nightly walks together,
but mostly in dreams.

We wax and wane the philosophical, two cerebral beetles
stepping lively over the cobblestone,
making deliberation of the gods of Serendipity, Accident, Judgement,
lifting up our hands to brush the coniferous needles
pushed to their limits by the cold autumn
now wintered.

Best Friends

by Abigail Gronway


No greater gift can one possess
Than friendship such as I have known
As kindred spirits we have grown

A friend one needs not to impress
You know my faults and love me still
I love you too and always will

The Shape of You (Rae’s Song Revisited)

by braveandrecklessblog

Tiny white lights twinkle

nocturnal noises provide a rhythm

for conversation’s give and take

We wrap each other gently in words

painting a night sky canvas together

giving glimpses

of our separate worlds

universes apart

Slowly, gently, carefully

Like the petals of a zinnia bud


My instinct is usually

To stay your hand
