With Earth’s first Clay They did the Last Man’s knead,
And then of the Last Harvest sowed the Seed:
Yea, the first Morning of Creation wrote
What the Last Dawn of Reckoning shall read.

Prickly marble
Cold to the touch,
Darting in and out of
Searing streams
Acclimation comes quickly
As the dust grit
From the work day
Sluices off,
Soap
A bubbly, slick sheath,
Flowing off and down the drain.

Squirrel II

by Jem Croucher

I met a little squirrel
in St James’ park today
He stopped and looked straight up at me
I think, as if to say
That if I were to be so kind
A little titbit please
‘For I’m find it quite hard
to find my nuts amongst the leaves’

It Is Something To Have Been

by HemmingPlay
Karma-New-Orleans-Louisiana-USA-4

“Karma,” New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. An impressive sculpture is located in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, which is found at the New Orleans Museum of Art. It is made by Korean artist Do Ho Suh.

I am well past my 20s,
that golden time
when I only saw a little—and even that
with optimistic eyes.

I’m past the days of cheap
apartments with friends and wine and roaches,
lentils and rice for breakfast,
or leftover cold pizza.

I’m beyond learning of
war and death and pestilence.
The visitations of grief
have marked me, too.

At Home

by Jem Croucher

Part 6 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘At Home’ series

At home this little series
concludes today when I
get back there from the Midlands
late this evening, by and by
Still a few hours travelling
but the further south I go
the closer home it takes me
which is wonderful to know

~ A Happy Place

by ladyliterati

~ A Happy Place

 

My ‘Happy Place’ is the farm

Where I knew not danger

Knew not harm

When bright-eyed wonderment

In upcast eyes, shone

Before Time turned the pages

One…by…one.

Do we do?

by Venkat

8th Nov 2017

Note the position of the word *do* in each line

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

do we grow bones of mind
or do we mow grime off thoughts
did they do life for horses
or did they do eyes for our hands

Birmingham

by Jem Croucher

Part 1 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘At Home’ series

At home on a Sunday
is where I’d rather be
But I’m travelling to Birmingham
a long way from the sea
Five hours on a railway train
to reach my destination
with a good book and some music
to ease my consternation

VOLCANIC

Volcanoes do develop
in me too
And you try fanning
to cool it up..

The moment you realise
its too late
Eruption has already
made its verocious way..

The Reaper

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Every moment we lose someone
We learn the meaning of sympathy
How grief will hurt and leave us undone
But in it’s place grows sweet empathy.

~ Allegory

~ Allegory
Ascending as the vultures, high…

(Upon the remains of wealth)
Swarming as the bee

Lacking comb, and home
Grunting, (as piglets do)
