We can go hand in hand

by Harry

Submitted by Katherine Shipp
.
We can go hand in hand
into the heart of the woods.
Our home is bereft
of holly and spruce;
let’s go into the heart of the woods.
We will gather up gladness
and bring home a holiday mood.

Seamless Tapestry

by Harry

Submitted by zaroffpoetry
.

PT Cruisers fuse
through time
the now El Caminos
pullin’ through casinos
valets sort those wooden panels
into tidy lines
Licking gas pump handles
like supermodels
crossing divided highways
on wings
prayers
gas fumes

Soldiers

by A. Marie

And he blows his head open, because he is in the army; he does not
want to go back. He makes it clear.

I was his friend, when he was alive and in high school.
I am his friend again, now that he is gone and fading.

St Mary of the Harbour

by Jem Croucher

So, there’s already some words written
about me as I am today
But there’s more to make the story
complete in every way
For once I was much bigger
cruciform in shape
Part of Shoreham’s presence
on the Sussex south landscape

Gathering

by mkvecchitto

 

coffee-cup-mug-white-6296.jpg

It had been a while

since it was just us…


We gathered together —

a homecoming of sorts


                    It came upon a midnight clear

                    that glorious song of old

                    from angels bending near the earth

                    to play their harps of gold

Again, the Season To Be Jolly

by Rhyme In Time

Again, the season to be jolly?
Again upon us? How appalling.
I missed Black Friday’s online sales,
And visits to the mall are fails–
For gift certificates I’ll soon be trawling.

Scent of pine wafting

Slant of snow slicing sleet

Sparrows huddle, silent

Mother Nature (7) – Passion

by Jem Croucher

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

And what better way to finish
than upon a note of passion
Passiflora with its Latin name
for horticultural fashion

I STILL HEAR YOUR VOICE

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

In the silence of the night
in the wee small hours
I still hear your voice
whispering to me
and I feel your warmth
in my heart and my soul
and my body yearns for you

I’ve A Friend Called Firefly

by A. Marie

I’ve a friend I call Firefly, for reasons I’ve explained,
and we take nightly walks together,
but mostly in dreams.

We wax and wane the philosophical, two cerebral beetles
stepping lively over the cobblestone,
making deliberation of the gods of Serendipity, Accident, Judgement,
lifting up our hands to brush the coniferous needles
pushed to their limits by the cold autumn
now wintered.

Epiphany

by HemmingPlay

When the sun comes up like thunder

I knew a guy.
Cancer survivor,
worn down to the lacy bone,
thin, with dry skin.
But a light shone through
his stretched parchment skin
like some kind of
organic fire.
The brush with death
left a calling card.
“I’ll be back” it said.
“You won’t know when.”

Chased in Dragons

Falling, pleading succeeding in accuracy

Make out night gowned felony

A crime not drawn intensity

Stick to the focus

Spell under hypnosis

A magnetic pull, a psychosis

Melodrama in process

A Record of Longing

by Stephen Fuller

In what book do I record this longing?
Someday, she will pull the tails of letters
I dangle like lures and discover the words
Heard inside my heart. She hears my beat.
She feels my flow. My heart still but fleet
Persists like a melody by Philip Glass:
Repeating, repeat, repeating, repeat

Her hand of wonder covered

Limerick – Fall

by Venkat

Mr. and Mrs. Bee went to skydive to be light

Balloons in belly of a sky, in suits tight

Lighter than air, thin as cloud

Feather landing on moon, proud

Quuen-in-law stung, they so fell back in fright
