Sea of Child

by Jem Croucher


By listening very carefully
I could hear it on the air
My call across the many years
to me still walking there
The beach where many summer spent
as a boy with dirty knees
To which half a century later
I returned on Autumn breeze

The New Ice Age

by Venkat


As Earth spins into seasons
We spun snow upon our feet
Immobile, white with frozen eyes
We breathe through cones
A smile, melting into our teeth

From a chide to flak

Chained by loathness

by Venkat

Man seeks to be free forever

Wanting things unbound

Removing every border

A pursuit he thinks sound

A feeling for more and more

He looks to find

A limitless dream to adore

Unsatisfied in his mind

It Takes Two

by Venkat

Imagine food

You did not taste

A fantasy mood

Making Sense of Perfection

To a gymnast

A sense of timing

A glory to last

Joy of executing

To a carpenter

A sense of measure

Smoke, no fire

My silence, so loud

A dream, no desire

In a world bipolar

My voice unheard

Welcome to my life

A one-sided world

Depressed in strife

Lying down curled

by Venkat

As a trust unbroken

A love made to last

My chair, a token

An attachment to past

Unable to renew

Try as much he can

A longing real, true
