Memorial Day – 2017

There’s no cure for the sorrow
That war puts upon
The family, the soldier
The lover, the young

Oh, I sing of the sad ones who wander around

Reality has crept in

My heart you no longer soothe

To love me now

Is a sin.

First Migration

 FIRST MIGRATION

A sliver of a moon

Shimmered off my left shoulder

As we pumped our wings

Rhythmically, silently

Through the darkness of the frigid night.

Saturday Service at the Church of ING

by Nick Anthony

Dank air, thick and heavy
As gaseous molasses,
lazily ferments in this amber rusted barrel
Of soulful blues and bad tobacco.

Faithful, old drunks slowly sway,
Inebriated from breathing kill-devil air.
They sing wailing gospels of woe
In harmony with Lucille on the record player.

SHE HOPES FOR MORE

by thereluctantpoet

—-MEMORIES OF THE PAST—-

By Charles Robert Lindholm

she’s so loving

Up Boy

by A. Marie

Up he is, among the peaks and towers and airliners and birds,
a ballooning mind, teetering and spry, leaping, lurching,
high, strung out as wire, conversing with the pushmi-pullyu
of the times, and hollering out equations laced in lies, too
ropey, thinly boned, composed of an avian sweater knitted
by his father who fashioned him a helmet made of toothpicks,
he throws fits, says he had a dream he never had a mother,

Red III

by Jem Croucher

A little bit of red came
to my driveway where it stayed
and stood alone, magnificent
with beauty there displayed
So gorgeous was its colour
that it brought a little tear
Vivid and resplendent
at this lovely time of year

Halfway

halfway

you talk words
and I
speak symbols

you make plans
and I
dream far away

you turn off the tune
and I
still hear it play

What is it going to be?

by Harry

Submitted by World Imagined

.

What is it going to be?
the left, the right, freedom or tyranny?
You have to choose wisely;
you only have one shot
to bring the light or stay in the dark
for more years to come.

Came home from work, No sweet nothings whispered in my ear…
No glad to see you, how was work dear?
Grenades of hateful words drenched in cyanide lobbed at my chest…

Devotion

by Jem Croucher

Up upon the Sussex hills
on Friday afternoon
I spied a sheep with new born lamb
the timing, opportune

As in my hand I happened
to have a camera with a zoom
allowing me to get in close
and for a moment be attune
