Impatient

I fill the old mossy wooden feeder that hangs from a tree limb

With an abundance of shiny, black, sunflower seeds

From the  bucket hanging on my arm.

Trying to hide the darkness within
Bumbling about as the time flies
Trying to find beauty within.”

Red ( A poem)

As you drip through my fingers
like a naked truth
and I hide you,
behind all the shameful veils
like a proverbial truth
you exist
and flows in my veins;

Distant Rain

by jaybluepoems

distant-rain-2

Sensual lines above the plain,
seductive curves of coming rain,
poised o’er sweetened fields of corn
whose tassels, golden, so adorn the jasmine jade and green.

“Interlewd”

by Harry

Submitted by zaoffpoetry

.

Secrets steeped
in krait secretions
& sencha leaves
brewed grume
i poured myself
a cup of illusion ~
… your shaitan
loomed in the steam
an amorphous penumbra
rising to
seduction in your lips,
licking across
the bleeding seam …
i spill into
the stained tablecloth,
liquesce into the creases
all calligraphic arches
of invitation

Pride

Chest thumping your way
to the eternal damnation
living in the land of giants
and self-loathing with your
mortal existence
you are swelled with pride
bloated with the mortal sin

Broken Reflections

by Harry

Submitted by Pasithea AnimaLibera

.

Reflections are actions
shown in light or thought.

Sometimes serene like
reflections off a lake.

Sometimes broken like
refractions off broken glass.

Between light and thought
is a dream reflected or refracted.

A Dangerous Love!!!

by Harry

Submitted by Lynsay Sterling

I loved him so much, he was like a star that I had to touch. If only I had known that I was going down this road alone. I’ve made my home in the gutter like no other. I knew that he was dangerous from the start but I thought that he’d only break my heart.

Silhouette

by Jem Croucher

At twilight down on Shoreham Beach
When the light is fading fast
And the whisper of the turning tide
Is dark as we walk past

The rising moon out to the East
Glistens on wet sand
Bright just like the sunshine
In the shadows where we stand

How close have you seen Ireland,
O maiden?
How much remote was America?

Had you ever seen the Indus,the Unicorns,the advancements in Mohen-jo-daro
In your dreams?
Had you ever drunk the drops of nectar
From the smoky utterances Prevalent in Tapobans..

And So It Begins

by HemmingPlay

And so it begins, again,
that urge to shrink from
the cool touch of machines;
the hushed offices,
the looks of concern,
the competent compassion.
Maddening, imprecise precision–
“the blood test found something, we
need to do more tests…..
something’s there
on her scans…”
a blurry, thicker patch there,
spots on bone, lung, breast, too.

And give to it my blessing
For happiness and cheer

January one
I bring a snowdrop promise
To the year that’s just begun
