A Wish Not to Change

by Venkat

let me nail this color in my eyes
till every color breathes in it
let me read this darkness

let me stay on this ground
till it becomes my world

Ends

by Venkat

wispy memories, swoop raw and deep
claws of gravity, spin lines in blood
love in moonshine gay on its old paw
a planet of nights, on bones I know not
ends I hold, carry lines raw and deep
too cold for knots, so far for thoughts

in pain they glow

Doldrums, dilemmas
Incongruous, inimical

Turns thesaurus till tables turn

Lost and Found

by Nick Anthony

I am in search of something unknown,
Just beyond my grasp of comprehension.
I stand at the temple doors of Self,
Sealed shut by monks of Sophistry
To conceal their esoteric knowledge and rites,
Of which I desperately long to understand.

Reluctant Spirits

by HemmingPlay

A woman I know,
a believer, told me
she saw angels hovering
over our house.
I can’t see them, but
it wouldn’t surprise me.

Sitting by your bed
through the long nights,
feeling you slip away
a bit at a time as the cancer
races through you,

Gravitate

by Venkat

off they swirl, your spinning words
between brows, into spaces
meanings bright, meanings dark
Some I read, some too far
gravitate me yet, on orbits apart

Drops, they loved, million brothers divine

Clouds, in murmurs, shook in dance

Suspended in a lightning romance

Limerick – Lies

by Venkat

Mrs. Android went to see where truth lies
She surfed through Google sea, being wise
Truths from cocoons be lies in bits
Lies from cocoons be truths in hits
She nodded, ‘Lies are truths written by mice’

Limerick – Age

Limerick – Age
‎01-Dec-2017

-by Venkat

Wrinkles they stood up, lined in stripes
As tigers they held voices, hollow pipes
Life’s jungle, dark stripes in white
Grew eyes to paint the night
Age in shooting aches, gives best wipes

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
