That lavender time again III

by Jem Croucher

No.3 in the annual Jemverse ‘Lavender’ series

On twenty-three seven
it seems every year
a lavender rhyme
will often appear
For it is at this time
that my harvest is due
so I’ll always have words
to share here with you

Capturing Hope

Once I climbed
the walls of a canyon
just to release my voice beneath
a sky tinged with red velvet and rubies

I’VE TRAVELED SOME WRONG ROADS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

You’d Know I Was A Liar,
If I Tried To Tell You That Life
Has Been Smooth Sailing
With No Storms Or Dangers,
Even A Fool Knows
That’s Not True

fragrance high
sunshine bright
deep a sigh
Lavender
in perfect rows
ripe for harvest
summer knows

Cynical is the city’s

by Harry

 Submitted by Timmy the Scribbler

.

widest, brightest, boulevard;
not a smudge, nor a gouge to be found
and strong drinks are often on the houses
on the condition the existence
of the secret suction machine
is kept mum by whosoever partakes,

Third party-

by Harry

Submitted by Meg eliza

.
Another slam poem about love right,
But the thing ill never understand is the way that your hand;
Can fit so perfectly into another’s.
that happiness is monumental but so momentary.
I don’t know maybe it’s just me or my inability to see the cracks and creases in the broken pieces of your smile.

Truth like glass

by The Cheesesellers Wife

In  Inspiration’s furnace
Poets work and strive
To create a Truth like glass
Clear, transforming
A window to other.

Clouds

cocoons cast, crusted corn
chillled charm, coils coyed

carry cymbals, ceaseless choir
clouds colored, clouds classic

The sea, my friend, to bring me cheer

Midnight Memories

Flashing lights on the horizon
dredge up midnight shades of blue
back to when hearts made of paper
set a table trimmed with a spray
of larkspur and lies

Silence

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Silence
Envelops, encompasses
Is made of a material
That becomes rigid
And shatters at a single sound.

“Copper 2”

by Harry

Submitted by zaroffpoetry

.

Smells like parvo beagles

birthday money tests

bleeding from the eyes

beat up bookshelves on dressers

learning to put down live animals so they won’t suffer

life is a hard lesson

rocks in your throat

soft green green moss

so we grow to greater heights than before

and the kettle whistles

weighing down our clouds

as slingshots

just before launch

Tropical Dream

by Harry

Submitted by thaharbor

.

I awake to waves colliding into bleached sands as they sizzle across the seemingly-endless coastline

Waves that are a deep blue, yet also transparent; waters that appear to be pure, but are found to be brine

Its spray weaves within the wind, a mist that grazes over the beach and onto the tops of my exposed feet

Fields of Lavender

by Jem Croucher

We walked in fields of lavender
on the sixth day of July
On a summer evening
beneath a clear blue sky
Lordington near Chichester
high on Sussex hills
to watch the setting of the sun
A cure to cure all ills

The colour of rain

by Jem Croucher

I saw splashes of colour
like rain falling down
A rainstorm of rainbows
to dispel any frown
So I danced as the colour
fell all around me
soaking and soothing
and setting me free

On Searching

by mkvecchitto

20180716_132528.jpg

Between sparks of light and the convocation of scholars—
he is brave enough to be curious
living in the moment, blissfully unaware
as the world moves on

Not afraid to ask questions as he murmurs
           tell me again
                                show me
                                              let me…
