by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Do not sin and betray the trust of your lover,
but if you have or if you do,
you must keep silent
and bear the burden
alone – forever

The Colorado Pooper

by Rhyme In Time

Out for healthful daytime jog,
Disinclined to hit the bog.
Here’s a spot–I’ll drop a log!

Inspired by this running headline:

Where’s God?

by Harry

Submitted by Bo Bestvina

.

I don’t find God in the pretty things
So I’ll pass on the bright lights
And glistening teeth

I don’t find God
In performances of consumption
Or in unapproachable beauty and youth

Something Happened

by Harry

Submitted by Michael A. Walker

.

Pulled from the earth on the cusp of sunrise
A breath of life gushes to the realm
Sent amidst a civil uprising among civilities
Something Happened, light refuse lights of distinct

King on peace shot to eternal peace visualizes
Lights reunite to learn aright
Something Happened, renown of old still opposes
Assumption of favour blinds the brightest of lights

Serving honourably on a broader plain coherently
Marching to a rhythm of one beat Happened
Seven finalizes the journey, civil starts anew
Crow lightly seasoned still the flavour of some..

Two scores and six and still under this dark cloud
Some thinks a curse of storms to avoid acquaintance
Methinks a cloud of witnesses urging onward
Those afore sojourning similitude before crossing over…

Child Of God

In truth, you cannot own a child of God
Even if they appear to be perfection
In truth, all people and souls are flawed.

Light

by kim blades, writer

Above the silent bay at midnight

in the sea reflected sky,

there shines a silver moon

amidst barred clouds,

like a bloom

shines the silver stillness of the moon.

The Crows Come at Sunset

THE CROWS COME AT SUNSET

From all corners of the sky

Black silhouettes winging together as a noisy flock

On their way to their secret destination

Which I long to know

Summer’s End

by Jem Croucher

I’m told that come September
England’s summer’s at an end
But I’m not ready yet, I’ll tell you
To say goodbye to my good friend
And I’m pretty sure the sunshine
Is having none of that
As the heat I felt at lunchtime
Made it clear where it was at
