Life Support

by Richard Rensberry, author at QuickTurtle Books®

 

I feel like a slug
searching for something
wet and cold
to cling to, a post
of black metal
sweating
in the heat of the night.

To times,
I have been on a high
with all the love
poured with joy..

Pavilion Gardens

by Jem Croucher

In Brighton there’s a cafe
in a garden with a view
Overlooking the Pavilion
(to some, the palace new)

It’s famous for its rock buns
(though today we did decline)
as we are on a diet
with an eye on our waistline

Open Doors, I search..

by Tanya

A tiring day,
with those drenched brows
I walk out
in despair and no hope..

Looking down
at the earthly floor
I look up
for a shoulder for my tears to pour..

Sealegs Wobble

by Jem Croucher

We’ve been back home now
for almost two days
with parts of us still out there
in many different ways

It’s called a ‘sealegs wobble’
after a week at sea
A strange but lovely feeling
from a place we love to be

Seeking Light

by Tanya

Amidst the turmoil
I face,
The mind still drains
and I still feel the pain..

No tomorrow

It’s flower of birth – Forget-me-not
and Morning Glory too
Synonymous with sunshine
Summer’s end here to bestrew

Wet Feet Are Part Of Life

by A. Marie

Worry about me later,
for barbarians are coming over the hills,

my fascination with the moon, my dark monarch
taking flight to greet the lamps lighted.
