PAST

by Tanya

Past
Haunts me more
Than it ever did before
For it has a longer history to pour

Haunted
I stick to myself
Holding tight I wonder
More about the consequences
That could have been well mended

Entangled

by Tanya

Entangled strands of hair
Brush through them roughly
And many lay stranded,
Lifeless..
As if all set to bid goodbye,
Falling off with every stroke,
At times moving out in a bunch,
Separating
And may be annoyed..

the county of the green
Midst the pride of England’s glory
quite the best that’s to be seen

My peaceful seat

by Jem Croucher

I’ve a seat in my garden
where I can sit in the sun
as it sets in the West
when the daytime is done
It’s just the birdsong and me
and the soft evening light
An admirable setting
to sit here and write

Unexpected Appointments Divine

by 50djohnson

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

People are searching for peace and fulfillment.  In my opinion, there is only one place from which peace comes and that is from reading the Word at the Father’s feet.  “In the presence of Jehovah, God Almighty, Prince of Peace.  Troubles vanish, hearts are mended, in the presence of the King.” This line is from a song sung by Damaris

The World of the Day!

by Tanya

I wondered what the world meant..
Was it the love that people spread?
Or is it the hatred which actually stands?

It’s love, they said,
Which linked all in this den.
But there stood hungry men,
Who craved for the blood of these men!

The Nottingham & Beeston

by Jem Croucher

In Nottingham the waters
of the canal are quite tranquil
with new building now reflected
in the waters quiet and still
Iron rings along the towpath
remain in situ there
Yet no more to fasten barges
with slow horses unaware

A Bed-ly Thought

by Tanya

The air is calm,
As I can’t feel it on my palm..
The lights are dim,
So, I start to hymn..

I close my eyes-
My wings of butterflies,
A sheet covers me,
So I rest my knee..

God is…

by 50djohnson

 

september-23-2015-after-the-storm-065   May2015 133

When the storm clouds are all around me, and there seems no place to hide

My soul cries out to Jehovah God and I reach deep down inside.

For it is deep inside my soul I find provision everlasting

Knowing Jehovah Jireh is always ready to provide.

Flying over Hampshire – Version 2

Sometimes I can fly
High above like a bird I soar
and look down to the sea
and the rolling waves
and the white horses galloping there
And I sing

Piece by Piece ~ Christmas Poetry Challenge

by Anita Lubesh

I can’t wait to be back home
where the cold mingles with the dawn
and water drips delicately down the pane
catching the chilled air that still smiles
with the sunshine –
it has no aching bones.

But still I wish for more

A Thousand Sparks

by The Poetry Channel

We were telling stories
before hitting the hay,
vaporous fingerlings
reaching out from
exhausted coals
to yawning mouths
and fist-rubbed eyes.
You wandered in
out of the night.
