What We Are

by A. Marie

We are heads clacking together,
Stiff blades that clash and shatter we are
Sparking,
Flint and rock into fire,
We are two wolves left howling at the moon.

We are a rising of a wave
And the shatter,
We move with the seasons and with
The whales,
We are thighs arching, napes cracking,
We are bones that have yet to die.

Sunset Senses

by Anita Lubesh

sunset senses

I smile at sunset’s throng of small songbirds
singing out while nuzzling their nested fauna,
dreamily chirping ‘til sleep stills them.

A “Real Deal To Repeal” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

deal with the devil

The recurring theme of the Trump Presidency has been, “What do we know?” We know that Trump is the lying scumbag that he basically told us he was during the campaign. It may be the only thing he didn’t lie about. He was caught on camera and tape. He just tossed it aside as insignificant as long as those easily persuaded by his hate and fear rhetoric and false promises of being a populist leader took the bait. Once he hooked them, reeled them in and won the election, America began what has been a difficult, painful process of trying to discover “What do we know?” His tweets are from The Twilight Zone. He is running a carny sideshow out of the White House. The Russian connection is real. But with regard to the extent, purpose and people involved there is still a lot of “What do we know?” still to be asked. And it is going to have a much louder voice that gains volume from the growing number of Republicans who still believe it is their sworn duty to serve the public and know that Trump does not. They know that the Republican Party is going to die a painful death if they don’t fix this fast….And that led to this……

Poem of the Day – Bell String

by paturnerlee

Bell String

 

Trawling levels of sand filled paper cups from stolen ships

Trips to the heart

A start of a new beginning; singing and dancing tunes

Balloons floating high to burst over purple shivering seas

Pleased to be in harmony

Ache in her soul

Tears that welled up

Evening Gold

by Jem Croucher

Silhouetted here in contrast
against an azure sky
Like giant insects waiting
cranes in silent protest lie
And glorious behind them
behind the Western hills
The sun sets o’er the city
and everything is still

The Length of a Moment, Contemplated

by S Francis

On this island far from the noise today
We walk, weaving our hands along the way
Wondering about the length of this moment
And from where it came, like time folded
Upon itself, connecting an ancient dot
To the impressionist portrait drawn
From our transit across the river
To this island far from the noise today.

Surrender to Decay

by braveandrecklessblog

The words in italics are directly taken from the Beverage Menus at Fermenteria and Tired Hands Brew Cafe. They serves as inspiration for this poem.


He was half gentleman, not beast

An ever charming sentinel

Marked by his military bearing

She found him to have an awake mind

Full of Blue Eyed Soul

Relentlessly dry sense of humor

An “Is The Tide Turning?” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

marvel villain

Trump had a pre-election core of supporters who are white and part of a middle class that is experiencing a decline in their standard of living. They are disillusioned and frustrated by this and feel that the last eight years of government has failed them. Donald Trump represented a chance for them get back what they feel they have lost or have had taken from them. He used proven methods to appeal to their emotions. He was counting on the fact that when emotion runs high, IQ runs low and he could incite them to drop their IQ’s to a level low enough where they would overlook that he is unashamed and unapologetic for being a scumbag and vote for him. It appears that he also feels that if they were dumb enough to vote for him, they deserved what he had in store for them.

Wild Ballet

Today I was witness
to Baryshnikov and Nureyev
in a wild ballet. Such grace!
Such nerve! Such beautiful leaps
as they chased each other
across the meadow stage.

Happy World Poetry Day!: An Homage to William Wordsworth

by scatterednotebooks

Ah, once again, there they go,
a slight roll of the eyes
and a recoil from something foul,
but we know – you and I –

but most I’ve met in daily life
react with mild disdain

Are You A Head Banger

by graypoet

boardofwisdom.com

 

We’ve all witnessed the effect that music can bring forth
Hard Rock or Metal can causing head movements to be seen
While some bang in earnest and some are just joking around
Those images of head banging are not the kind that I mean.

Six hours on a railway train

Old and new in contrast

BEAM

by mikeb

 

A beam of light has found it’s way
Into the darkness that is me
And broken up the sullen state
That took a hold of all I be
The wilderness is where I was
Abandoned,lost and deep in shock
The Lord has raised me from the sand
And now I stand upon The Rock.
