by cmapillay


There is a silence around
But i am craving to hear that voice
The one that brought peace to me
The one that hasn’t left me with a choice

I pinned my phosphorus heart

to the crisp linen sleeve

your initials

carved deep

This Feeling of Loneliness

by pranabaxom

I wrote this poem in Hindi couple of days back.  This is a rarity for me.  Hindi is not my mother tongue and Hindi grammar,  specially keeping track of the change in gender of the subject / object / verb combination is difficult for me.  From time to time I did venture in writing a few.  I translated the poem to Axomiya ( Assamese – my mother tongue)   and to English .  Posting these below with English translation first followed by original Hindi poem and then Axomiya translation.
( In the Assamese translation, the translated word for Eerie ( or strange) is a compound word “Advut”.  Even with my best try, my PC ( Windows 10) will not allow this compound letter/ word to be written properly.  So I was forced to replace it with a synonym, Achahua.  

Eerie this feeling of loneliness
Lips have not kissed the bottle

*Alliteration Poem – Travel*

7th Oct’17  ~by Venkat

Thunders throng, torches twirl
Tusks tainted, timber tracks
Tropics tussle, tepid trunk
Thud trees, thud thoughts
Twisted tyres, tracks torn

*Alliteration Poem – Memory*

28th Sep’17  ~by Venkat

Maples, murmur my melody
Melodies, murmur my morning
Mornings, murmur my muse
Musings, murmur my motifs
Motifs, murmur my memories

I travel spiral path

bare feet sinking deep into soft sand

circles twisting ever tighter

as I navigate this nautilus

walls curved and translucent

A Living Fossil

by pacific


You are the visceral imprint,

The perennial impression,

Something deep inside of me,

A poignant and recurring melody.

A song I’ve always known,

The centerpiece, the cornerstone,

The wall is blank for ages now
Lost the habit of framing and hanging
Photographs on the wall
Modern technology brings
Instant attachments
From across the seven seas

“Memory after you”

by Lenanoid

Like a lost soul
From a deep sleep
In a dazzle
Of frizzle I keep

Flashes of lights
In a blink of my eye
They blew me high

First Love

by markfahmy


Do you remember
the very first time
you fell in love?
Staying awake
long past bedtime
on a school night

And the butterflies
you felt firing up
in your stomach
every time you
saw her eyes?

A White Winter Hymn

by pacific


What is this I see?

The shimmer of years yet to be,

The draping of a quilted sight,

The flaking hope on a snowy night.

A sea of mist sprung from your lips,

The intonation of your tender quips.

Pictures II

by Jem Croucher


Do you have a picture
one close to your heart
Capturing a moment
from which you cannot part?
Perhaps it looks like mine
though I have many, truth be told
Ones I will keep with me
Until I’m very old

Shimmering metalicelectricbrightblue armorskin,
Wire-thin waist,
Twitchy, angry wings
Searing sting, delivered like hot death.
Oh, yes. I learned. I learned.

Mud dauber wasps drop
Out of the sun like Messerschmitt One-Oh-Nines,
