The Most Beautiful Flower

by markfahmy


Once I thought,
that the most beautiful flower
grows in the middle of fields.
And among the lush green,
she sways and dances with the breeze.

A Matter of Perspective

by Nick Anthony

Future-Me, a fan of irony,
Enjoys the reruns of a Present comedy
Starring Me, self-confident with sobriety,
Lamenting the stupidity of Past-Me.

Love Sonnet

by Ex Libris Regina

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.


by R. Saint Claire

Bright twinkle of stars and warmth of the sun,
Flotillas of clouds in Heaven’s fresh air,
Dark battles through which the brave hero becomes,
To all things amazed, my lover compares.

Figments of Forgotten Splendor

Whispers painted on Drops of Light

Sparkles that hum as they Remember

Renewal in Spring

by Colly




In spring, it’s such a splendid thing

when bud or rosette

along branch-let – stem

form flora’s – leaves.

Ticking Clocks

by markfahmy

The clocks kill me with their relentless ticking
Like a march of hungry soldiers in search of war
Blood and bones instead of the fruits I should be picking
Clock arrows ferociously eating inside my core

A Tiny Drop

by markfahmy
If the world is an ocean
And, I, just a drop
That moves along the collective wave motion
Secretly wishing that it would stop
Whirlwinds, tornadoes circulating through
And I, a tiny drop, in the midst of it all
Does not know what it should do
Bumping and turning till it finds its role

To Me

by markfahmy


I hope you know.. that to me,

You were the blossoming flowers of spring,
You were the precious diamonds shining on an engagement ring,
You were the source of light to my everything.

You call me yours,
I call you mine.
Our sun of love starts to shine.

But on the road,
we draw the line;
both pretending we’ll be fine.

sat at dawn his fingers limp
(the blue sky streaked red)
reminding him of lost friends

A Magnificence that Charms and Lures

I carried a pocket full of dreams

Some slipped through faltered seams

But still I carried on, permanent failure

Was not an option:

Silent Refrain – Lyrics

I’ve got a voice

Let me sing you a song

I’ve got a dream

Let me take you along

Show you how

It all went wrong

Have a seat

This may be strong
Momma taught me

To RESPECT all races

~ ‘Neath the Daunting Drifts

by ladyliterati

Jonas Must Concede
Angry was the night

Defiant leaf on bare branch cling

As howling winds force chimes, sing
Swirl of blinding snow

Bites about ears and nose

Settles, soakes, freezes blue of tiny toes
Beded down night creature’s

Braving winter’s wrath

~Persephone ~

by ladyliterati

~ Persephone ~
The vale of Enna, where posies abound,

She tenderly plucks them from the ground,

Demeter as always, favors the soil,

With an abundance of growth that does not toil.
Oh sing a hymn to Demeter,

Suffer her anguish and pain,

Oh sing a hymn to Demeter,

Her Mysteries to obtain. Her Mysteries to obtain.
Hades spying from his dark, dank kingdom,
