Through the laughter and the tears,

Standing forever by my side

Standing together, husband and bride.

True Love

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.

Submitted by Katharyne

.

The sun shines through the leaves.
The bird birds sing merrily.
I see him in my dreams.
He says he loves me.

Tell me, what is true love?
My full, fluttering heart
grows wings like a dove.
Storms tear this love apart.

A poem for valentine’s Day

by Harry

Submitted by Tsegaye Tessema Tola

.

I dreamed as if I will cheer my love- Habtish
In that dream I saw my angles’ hands on the dish
I stretched my hands and could not reach out to feed my kids
My sweet love constantly looks into my eyes in that dream and I into hers
How wondrous is that dream pulling my neck all that long to her lips for a kiss.

Recognizing Reality

by frankhubeny

Poetry Challenge: Valentines Poem

If I should see an angel on a dish
About the size of any mid-sized fish,
I hope I’d be inclined to hesitate
Before I eat what’s on that dinner plate.

A NEW YEARS BLESSING

by Harry

Poetry challenge: New year poem

Submitted by W.H.Brown.

May the hand of our Lord always guide you
May His tender love daily anoint your heart
May the peace of His heaven fill your world
As this New Year’s breath begins to start

May His grace in your mind be steadfast
May the light of His Spirit fill your face
May you never again feel any loneliness
As you live daily in His loving embrace

As we approach the New Year
I seem to be walking on rose petals
They bring reflections of a beautiful flower
A “To Be” and then
A “Not To Be”

A Very Short, Short Story

To make writing a career I need to write,

Another Year

by The Poetry Channel

Poetry challenge: new year poem.

.
Here we are
at another artificial
division,
arbitrary distinction,
in the flow’s design.
An abstraction we experience
linearly
punctuated by episodic
circumstances
playing themselves out
over time.
Some,
heartbreakingly painful,
such as loves lost,
others, utterly sublime.

A “Spin The Dreidel” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem.

.

This is one of my favorite limericks and I am happy to recycle it today. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays to all.

My favorite part of Hanukkah is playing Spin The Dreidel. The dreidel is a four-sided spinning top that children play with on Hanukkah. Each side is imprinted with a Hebrew letter. These letters are an acronym for the Hebrew words “A great miracle happened there,” referring to the miracle of the oil that took place. The way I play it involves another miracle of sorts – the miracle of carnal fun.
