boats buttered, tender
satin deck to float the smile
words, on tongue’s oars

Embers

by Jem Croucher

Around the fireside, family
A summer evening spent
sharing food and drinking beer
and general merriment

The embers glow with flicker bright
A focal point to share
This was contentment, rarified
for everybody there

tigers ate my night
my breath, a old pemdulum
Moon came back, unclawed

Full bloom
I exude yellow

breathe not air of their fingers

Synergy

by Jem Croucher

Found I shared a synergy
earlier today
with a kindred spirit
many miles away
A passion shared in music
awakened by a song
heard across the airwaves
to which we sang along

Grin

by Megha's World
yingpis-kalayom-133680-unsplash

Grin and bear it
bear the trickling pain
the harrowing death
which slowly reeks
from every single pore
of your body
pain and suffering
is a common trend
but empathy and care
is a phenomenon, unknown.

Immerse islands, immerse itches

Holloway Circus

by Jem Croucher

So I’m sitting in a hotel room
A pagoda down below
Traffic on the circus
Moving family slow
In Birmingham on business
But I’ll be home tonight
And tomorrow I will have the sea
Back within my sight

Marylebone

by Jem Croucher

Sat outside in Marylebone
the summer evening warm
I think we’re getting used to this
as if it were the norm
Perhaps it is as it’s been weeks
since we saw any rain
and several months have passed us by
since summer time it came

Brightening

by Jem Croucher

Just a few words is all it takes
to change the way I feel
Escapism? maybe sometimes
but they have the power to heal

Just a few words each morning
finds a way to say
something new to bring a smile
and brighten up my day

Slow Season

by Jem Croucher

There are paddle boards and kayaks
Inflatables and yachts
And barking dogs just running
and calling all the shots
There are diamonds on the water
glistening in the sun
with the sound of wavelets breaking
on the shore by everyone

Guidelines for Confession

by Megha's World

“Wait for that wisest of all counselores, Time.” 
― Pericles

They say confessions
can absolve you
They can make you pure.
You will be pristine
as the seraphic soul.

Acrostic + Alliteration: 2018-08-02

by Venkat

Soak scars, silken strength
Old omens, opals ornate
Used urns, unused ukelele
Lights low, life lusted
Fòggy fires, fine ferns
Unanswered, unknown
Lush lines, linger long

Tongues thick
Hold horses
Over oil
Up up up
Go go go
Helium hearts
Threaded thoughts

Twelve months revisited

I wrote a poem for every month
twelve times throughout the year
Published on the first of them
whenever that drew near

Because we can II

by Jem Croucher

Staying til sunset
down at the beach
is something we do
‘cos it’s in easy reach
We might have a swim
or relax in the sun
but whatever we do
we always have fun

fruit
flavours, fades
fame, fear, footprints
fosters, finishes, satiates
slow, subtle, seraphic
sketches, seeks

sparrow
sings, spins
soft, shrill, serenades
slips, sinks, siezes, prays
psalms, ponderous
parts, poses

Got a new pen

by Jem Croucher

What once was Brighton’s bead shop
now sells stationary
Upmarket and pretentious
but good enough for me
For on a shelf, bright colours
a row of writing pens
So I just had to have one
as I do that now and then

Jem’s new hat

by Jem Croucher

Wandered round in Brighton
brought a brand new hat
Blue to match my sunglasses
Sylish (that’s a fact)
Felt much like a rock star
walking round the place
with lovely Brighton people
and a smile upon my face

Newness

by Bhavya Prabhakar, India

Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 11.16.59 pm.png

The skyscrapers

In a black city

Attracting the throng

To surrender the things

When the sense

Of newness wears off.

 

Build an attempt

So high

With an aim so tight

To render love

In a warm and vivid

Colors of shine.
