First Timer

by braveandrecklessblog

Response poem to S Francis’s (SailorPoet) poem In the Cafe  All are welcome at the Go Dog Go Cafe


I stand getting wet in cold rain

watching through plate glass windows

edges fogged

rendering the scene inside

a soft feathered oval

Aroma of coffee

faint but distinct

The Princes Square Peacock

by Jem Croucher

The Princes Square peacock
in full Art Nouveau
looks down from on high
to the people below

And Buchanan Street shoppers
as they venture within
can gaze up to its wonder
with a smile or a grin

ON THE WAY

by Alanna

“Are we almost there yet?”1309f33c20927d222859100d29bb9db5

I whined to my parents as we motored down seemingly endless highways

punctuated with Burma-Shave signs,jack44

Jumbo Orange stands and other odd roadside attractions.

We traveled to the pace of a ’56 Chevy Station wagon

two-toned Red & White

The Shilling

by Jem Croucher

I remember when I was a lad
how much a shilling gave
were I to spend it, even though
I was encouraged then to save

And so it was in West George Street
in Glasgow, Sunday night
The Shilling Brewing Co I found
built on an old bank site

Blend In

by scatterednotebooks

That’s me there –
in the hallway –
hands in my pockets, I make myself small.
My eyes to the floor,
I weave my way class-ward
trying to blend in to the walls

Sweet Grace

It was personal, that decision I made

to honor the day my angel grew wings

Things you don’t know could be just about anything

Shattered

by Harry

Submitted by  Sam (waywarddame)

.

Their piercing eyes locked in a fierce glare,
tearing at her damaged soul and leaving her bare.
She stood with promise towards a marvellous future,
but was constantly held back by this hidden abuser.
Her emotions rampaged within her wavering mind,
fear, malice, and disgust all running intertwined.

Non-believer

by pranabaxom

I believe in the goodness of humanity
Believe that dawn will follow night surely
Believe in all things beautiful
Though the world is full of misery
Believe in  oneness of mankind, disappearance
Of artificial boundaries dividing us
Believe one day we shall overcome, and
Win our fight against eradication of crippling diseases
Believe we will be able to stop all abuses and exploitation

A Suitable Period of Mourning

by braveandrecklessblog

full of mourning clothes

I have never

inked the names of my dead

on my tender forearms in black

in solemn homage

The list too long

my arms too short

to box with god
