Piper in the Weald

by Jem Croucher

Heading down Fulking Escarpment
with a piper to herald the way
The entourage headed down to the pub
on this lovely February day
The view of the Weald was breathtaking
as it always is in the sun
The company laughing and happy
and having plenty of fun

Dusk

by kim blades, writer

The sun descends in the west

and an evening star would shine

except it is hidden behind a nest

of clouds as grey as brine.

Thread of Life

you let me in, a tendril with a heart

thinning my dreams, into tomorrow

The silver sea

by Jem Croucher

Stood and looked out on
a shining silver sea
the far horizon deep and blue
and beckoning to me
It was cold there on the shingle
Winter’s grip an iron chill
But the sunshine on the water
was good and vibrant still

Ice Eyes

by Harry

Submitted by   Pasithea AnimaLibera

.

I look into your eyes for warmth
but all I see is a piece of drifting ice.

I control myself trying not to lose my mind
but darling holding you is my vice.

So here I am showing you pieces of me hoping you realize
but you show me there’s no forever just melting ice.

Mermaids

by A. Marie

Men only love us
when they need us, women dip
their babies in, Nereids seeking
to scale their children in armor;
we, ugly selkies, melusines, mer
maids and lads who swim in
black waters, we cannot breathe
the light, merely claw and scrape
at the tops of waves, legs
greeting us with nets and offerings –

Two little pigeons

by Jem Croucher

Two little pigeons
after some food
I’ve got a flat white
don’t mean to be rude
But no little morsels
have I to give you
so away pesky pigeons
‘Be off with you. Shoo!’

Reward:

by Harry

Submitted by thereckoning12

.

Enrolling in the clubs, groups and organizations.

Membership has its privileges, they say, eyes glowing with the hungry stare of zombies

wanting to skip along in sync with the group.

They search for power in numbers

Hoping for anonymity and shelter from the truth

But the numbers aren’t enough to crowd out the lies

that crush and maim their natural purity.

Neglecting the good, golden rays falling upon the brow
