Phantoms No More

by scatterednotebooks

You took the phantoms
from my life
locked ’em up and out of site
with gentle hands, a simple kiss

so I can get on with my life

even the words you say to me
helped cast the wraiths and
set me free

What We Are

by A. Marie

We are heads clacking together,
Stiff blades that clash and shatter we are
Flint and rock into fire,
We are two wolves left howling at the moon.

We are a rising of a wave
And the shatter,
We move with the seasons and with
The whales,
We are thighs arching, napes cracking,
We are bones that have yet to die.

Surrender to Decay

by braveandrecklessblog

The words in italics are directly taken from the Beverage Menus at Fermenteria and Tired Hands Brew Cafe. They serves as inspiration for this poem.

He was half gentleman, not beast

An ever charming sentinel

Marked by his military bearing

She found him to have an awake mind

Full of Blue Eyed Soul

Relentlessly dry sense of humor

Between you and I

Is a thin film of space

Naked to the eyes but vivid

To our senses.

The Everyday You

by scatterednotebooks

I’m in love with the every day you
hair pulled back
and green tennis shoes
blue jeans and tee shirt

under your nails – still – the dirt
from the garden full of roses
in bloom –
I’m in love with the everyday you

Moonlight’s Magic

This piece was inspired by a beautifully evocative poem Night Notes written by  EDC Shorts

It is only in sleep

That she is fully visible

Able to be deciphered

In her unbuttoned

Unzipped state

When Darkness Falls

by braveandrecklessblog

Darkness has settled in

Surrounds me

The cold outside our four snug walls

Frosts our windows

Turns snow into a hard, white crust

The day has been long my love

I have been doing battle with the world today

I have been doing battle with myself

A Poem to Celebrate Birth

by S Francis

Like a baby thinks
before he understands words,
when he emerges from the womb
and suckles his first nipple

his tired mother whose fatigued body
still aching with pain where she felt
unbridled passion release in waves
and tremors through her flesh

And I followed
Putting my heart
In his hands
Take the path
Down south
And I said, yes
I will follow

Breakfast at the Outdoor Cafe

by frankhubeny

She brings coffee and croissants to eat
While fat pigeons peck food at my feet
Seeking crumbs out of love
I might drop from above
As I search for her smile when we greet.

Nest of Wonder

by Venkat

fires, they gleam in rings

on your fingers, molten in amber

winds, they clasp as chains
on your eyes, in hollowed homes

snowfall, dance in buried silence

your feet, dream of voices to hold

waters, they clink as fireflies do

your heart, drip thoughts in the dark

My Valentine

by The Showers of Blessing

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.

(Ceramic piece painted by Miriam Hurdle)

It was serendipity that we met.

Summer had not stated yet, but

It was the final week of school.

I decided to go to

This group met at home.

We chatted, we snacked.

You asked what I did for fun,

I smiled, didn’t answer the question.

Poetry Challenge: Valentine Poem

First selfie - on board the Spirit – Version 2

Cupid’s arrow may for most
be secret on this day
when anonymity prevails
in messages we say
But for me the message is the same
with thirty-eight cards done
‘I love you more and more each year
For me there’s only one’

~ Death Holds No Victory Here…

by ladyliterati

~ Death Has No Victory

We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad,

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answers
