The Forest

The Forest

-Linda Lee Lyberg

When the ebony night falls
Deep in the hidden forest
The trees come alive and dance
To the cricket’s lulling chorus.

Santorini

by Jem Croucher

Part 5 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

Into the caldera at dawn
Golden tinge to the sky
Santorini all around
with Thira way up high

Anchors weighed, we drift
The tenders to the sea
Ferries to the waiting land
Sheltered in the lee

HAS THERE BEEN AN ECHO FROM MY LIFE?

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

I imagine standing
at the edge of eternity
at the edge of the abyss
and wondering
if there has been an echo
from the life I have lived on earth
anywhere in the world

Kalamata Castle

by Jem Croucher

Part 4 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

From Kalamata castle
having climbed for just a mile
Several ageing fir trees there
gave respite for a while

The heat was almost tangible
but we were not complaining
As the sun shines here ‘most all the time
But at home it’s probably raining

Untainted Grace

by carareevablog

Her head held high, wearing her crown with dignity

Proud of the woman she claimed to be

Carefree of all of life’s mishaps

Life happened to her in a split second

Dragging her pride and her head down with it

As her head continued to hang low the crown started to slowly slip off her head

The once sparkling jewels became a testament of her demise

The mist that rose from her sorrow as the cold tears hit her hot cheeks

Tainted her crown, filling it with rust that clung to the hinges of her heart

Let us Go Back

by Zenei

The past holds the future.

Don’t be chased. Don’t be chained.

Forget it and we tumble.

Go back and make peace.

Kalamata Heat

by Jem Croucher

Part 3 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

I found a spot of sunshine
with no-one else around
Overlooking Grecian waters
with just the ocean sound

It was very hot – some forty plus
but pleasant in the breeze
as we sailed to Kalamata
through Mediterranean seas

Enough of This Sh(ee)t

by Rhyme In Time

Some thoughts on the recent events in Charlottesville …

We’ve come so far, so how can this occur?
How is it simple pigment judgment blurs?
How can we still believe humanity
By outward cast divided we should be?
