The World of the Day!

by Tanya

I wondered what the world meant..

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

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

Knowing Jehovah Jireh is always ready to provide.

Sometimes I can fly

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.

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.
