Secret

by Venkat

2018-10-05

secrets they stand out
high up, pointed in the ends
in our lives, of spotted gold
in hurry, our nemesis in stone
eyes too close, will see not the end

I Come From A Place of Fireflies

by HemmingPlay

img_2961

I came from a place of fireflies,
where men were reasonable and tall,
Where people knew me by who my grandfather was, and his, and his.
Where farmers didn’t block views with trees,
To see at a glance from the kitchen window
How the corn was doing, the soybeans.

a heart to the brim, on edgeless thoughts
minds off coats, wear no face, no pout

Triolet : 2018-09-06

by Venkat

where do I hang my thoughts?
when love has lost its home
tables now jaded, speak no more
where do I hang my thoughts?

<!–more–>

windows now strangers
no candles to warm the time
where do I hang my thoughts?
when love has lost its home

Dreaded Whispers

by Anita Lubesh

Cotinus Young Lady-SmokeBush-Asitcomes

Been gardening again… I love this plant.

Strokes of moonlight smother
the inflorescent
whispers of the smoke bush

wavering against twilight’s
ghostly dreams
while pondering the water,
pondering depth and death.
