~ Being Human

by ladyliterati


“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

~ Death Holds No Victory Here…

by ladyliterati

~ Death Has No Victory

We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad,

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answers

Protest about the ever growing voilence of our world.

Protest about the ever growing pain.

I open my mouth to speak

Culture       is       a       fence,

fixed     with     giant     stems

and    sharp     barbed   wires

of beliefs, norms and values,

to      set    me     an    insider

and  you  a   bloody  outsider.

So Kind Guru

by newrana

A jungle was his head

for lies to hide;

no brush ever touched

his teeth too wide.

His rough-edged feet

feared no thorns;

his shorts and shirt

clung ever to his bones.

When the morn slithers her yellow light,
my heart, she replies

Om-dom. Om-dom.

Together we rise. We walk the hallway, kiss our coffee,
drink in the fresh air that flows from the opening door.

The Ire of God

by Richard Rensberry, author at QuickTurtle Books®

The Ire of God

Earl’s heart
like the rabbits and deer
gets its tides from the phases
of moon. As it wanes
all is quiet in the woods
and furrows.

The Blessing That Walks Softly

by Morgan

The Blessing that Walks


Be the Breath of the Moon

And the Smile of the Sun,

Be the Source of Gentle Grace

And the Joyful Giver, where there’s none.

If I don’t find my way

by Sandeep

The structure of my mind,
Is so patterned,
That I repeat myself,
Habitually, tediously,
Boringly, tiredly.
My present justifies
That, so clearly.

“How ditty-do
How do you do and mercy-bow ku!”
Outside the hospice
Howitzer Howie
Hollered humorless and horribly.

Some slipped through faltered seams

Silent Refrain – Lyrics

I’ve got a voice

Let me sing you a song

I’ve got a dream

Let me take you along

Show you how

It all went wrong

Have a seat

This may be strong
Momma taught me

To RESPECT all races

~Persephone ~

by ladyliterati

~ Persephone ~
The vale of Enna, where posies abound,

She tenderly plucks them from the ground,

Demeter as always, favors the soil,

With an abundance of growth that does not toil.
Oh sing a hymn to Demeter,

Suffer her anguish and pain,

Oh sing a hymn to Demeter,

Her Mysteries to obtain. Her Mysteries to obtain.
Hades spying from his dark, dank kingdom,
