Visible

by jaybluepoems

Silent now, this moment’s pause, bathed in ochre’s tinge of red,
revealing histories’ flaxen stitch, stretched through pin pricks long since bled.
Day lies still around me, ‘cross rustic echoes this past enfolds,
suspends my eye along the line where every memory’s story is told.

Songs in Sand

by HemmingPlay

And still the waves
slip ashore,
singing their
conspiratorial whispers
between grains of sand.
The wind slides in
from the deep,
empty places,
haunted and lonely,
cold and clean
like a wet finger around

THE SALT MINES

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

working in the salt mines
it’s a hard and daily grind
a slave to weekly wages
it’s a life that’s so unkind 

no parties with the mighty
the famous and the rich

THE DAILY RECORD

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

 

They say there is a daily record
we all make in the Book of Life

Some poor angel
recording all the details
of everything I do

That’s all

by A. Marie

Two legs, that are columns, your roof of bone, blood, sinew,
housing your pantheon, your gods that were born from burnt meals,
falls off your bicycle, windows you leapt from, drainpipes
slid down, hearts your broke with unkind words, papers you tore
and launched off bridges you walked
in the night.

Dead Horse

by JJ Merryweather

dead horseBetter here to cease than the knackers yard
A wild hearted beast that lived fast and died hard.

Better to have fallen than led away to be rendered
To have died on the hoof than gone lame and surrendered.

~ Flowers for Mother

by ladyliterati

Flowers for Mother

 

She picked the petals
One by one,
Tossed them ‘neath
A sultry sun,

 

A waft of wind
Carried them away;
As Mother
Received an earthly bouquet

Green Four

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
and green’s the next in line
The fourth one in the rainbow
and one that’s very fine

For it speaks to me of life itself
and the good things oft bestowed
on each of us ‘most every day
from all that nature grows

Perhaps our paths will cross again
In another time and place
Where you and I will both lose
All sense of time and space.
