Blue Brighton

by Jem Croucher
Brighton pier was glowing blue
as the waves fell to the shore
as we all six up on the prom
watched it and asked for more
And that we got in spades
as we always do right here
in Brighton on the Sussex coast
beside its famous pier
Even precipitation didn't
much get in the way
as the beauty was so evident
at the evening of this day

Fifteen minutes

by Jem Croucher
Fifteen minutes to write a few words
what will they feature today?
Will they be about sun 'cos it's raining outside
to encourage it swiftly away?
Will they capture a smile instead of a frown
which autumn and winter I'd say
don't do a lot to dissuade a long face
from becoming the norm by the day
For words, they have magical charm by the spade
with the power to do what they like
so when weather is fickle and continues with rain
in a poem it can just take a hike
Fifteen minutes to write a few words
almost done now but with good resolve
as they've brought to the fore a voice there that speaks
to encourage joie de vivre to evolve

The day started with little laze,

wondering if it’s the same roof under

which I started giggling.

I was lost in something gazing at the trees

visible through my window.

Feeling Umwelt

by HemmingPlay


Some days it’s all about limitations,
And while it’s no use complaining,
That’s never stopped me before.

I feel like a blind man living inside a kaleidoscope;
A glutton with but one taste bud left;
A monk who’s forgotten what he knew of God;
A tin-eared drunk waking up just as angels
burst across the heavens in song.
I’m a coma patient wrapped in wool,
strapped in a closet in a blackened room
in the back of the basement.

Shall I climb this tethered vine?
Will it lead me to the sky?
Trust its strength to hold me
And carry me up high?

Diadem – Sonnet IV

by Morgan



Listless Magic Singing within the Gilded Cage,
It’s Golden Bars A-shimmer in Secluded form,
Like Fortune Standing Mute Upon a Stage
While Blind and Deaf Parishioners to it swarm.

Of Us All

by beeseeker

Unseen, but somewhere

Between sky and earth

The sound of a blind, heavy plane –

Born of one,

Belonging to neither –

Grumbles at both.

Embracing Typhoons

by lonewolfpoetry


Frustrated with these barren crags of thought

I leap beyond to those clear, still waters.

Poised for a splash with unending ripples

but slipping in smoothly in tranquil hush.

Blocked in by mirrors I so long wished for

only to find the reflections putrid.
