brewing up trouble

potent potions bubble

over fires stoked with

Dragon

by Harry

Submitted by S.Thomas Summers


Today, I see you
beneath a canopy
of evergreens,

your wings spread wide
among the needled limbs
blending your shadow

with the shade gathered
like a pool about the dour trees.
And your great eye

ETERNAL LIFE

I’ve got this insurance, it just cannot fail
It’s certainly foolproof and pays on the nail
It covers the seasons of plenty and strife
It’s backed by the promise of eternal life.

To A Young Friend

by HemmingPlay

Photo by Kubra Zakir

A new day rises for you, daughter,
Pushing the darkness and the mists of childhood away.
Many have stood on this same shore, you know, but
This hour is wholly fresh, is yours entire,
Awesome and terrifying.
Thrilling. Dangerous. Engaging.
Overwhelming.
“Am I up to it?” You wonder…

Time for catch-up or for play.
But first, I’ll sleep in.

COMFY

by mikeb

comfy

 

You sit inside your comfy house
Having tea and cake
Though you are a Christian
Not a move you make
You go to church each Sunday
That’s about your lot
Oh why did Jesus die for you
To give you what He’s got.

Harry Potter

by Jem Croucher

Last night we all met Harry
or at least where he was made
after J K Rowling’s books into
the movies were relayed
Up to Leavesden we all drove
north of Watford town
where the Warner Brothers studio
holds the Harry Potter crown

All Hallows ‘ Grieve

by mzanemcclellan

Late at night, the silence cleaved, with sudden bluster, on All Hallows’ Eve.
Winds rose to stir the trees, rattled my nerves, shutters and doors.
As I settled, still somnolent, I realized the dark portent.
My eyes widened at whispered words, whispered as softly as the coo of birds.
“Your time has come,” a voice did say, words ominous, and they did weigh.
I prayed the voice would go away.

Nightbeach

by Jem Croucher

20161025_195025

Cast in yellow pools of light
night shadows on the beach
Wooden breakwaters stand tall
robust against the Reach
Mysterious, the water calls
quietly from the shore
as lapping waves just out of sight
return again once more

Gold Chain

by Miriam Hurdle

VanessasLocket

Hidden in the rocks, its value

Waits to be found.

Digging, hitting, pounding.

Comes above the ground.

What does it want to be?

It doesn’t know.

WITHOUT YOU

by mikeb

with

 

Without You I am nothing
Without You I get scared
You took this life, so empty
And showed me that You cared
For many years we’ve travelled
As one, through thick and thin
The world was such an empty place
But now You’ve filled it in.

Smokestack Hypnosis

Frothy foam floating atop steaming chemical vats
Boils, becoming warm white clouds
Climbing up cold concrete columns,
And billowing forth from icy smoke stacks.

Poetry’s Not a Crime

Poetry’s not a crime.
It’s human language singing.
The crime is silence.

GRASS

by mikeb

grass

 

They say the grass is greener
Upon the other side
And there’s an urge to prove it
From which you cannot hide
Dreams of fun and eden
Pervade your passive mind
Egged on by the devil
Who can be very kind.
