The Word

by Jem Croucher

I found a word
It was quite small
In fact it wasn’t
much at all
But when I added
it to others
It blossomed with
it’s new found brothers

Grasp

by Renwick Berchild

They murmur beneath their breath
difficult woman,
obstinate girl,
opinionated,
shrew,
man-eater,
they shout to my face
unfuckable,
impossible,
what a waste
of a body,

Demimondaine

by Renwick Berchild

Her midriff is a rumba, she skims the dance club’s lights, flitty beetle
with a hard shell and the taste of vegemite,

and the musk of a jaguar; of all these people crammed here
she has the strongest bite.

Make Me Believe

by Renwick Berchild

It is astonishment only that holds me;
you brandished your weakness, and tried to slay me,
and now you are bent in your knees.

Redwood

by Jem Croucher

The tree was so majestic
and very, very tall
So when I stood beneath it
I felt very, very small
The mass of green above me
with branches spreading wide
overpowered my senses
and I felt small inside

The Woodland

by Renwick Berchild

I am inferior. Let me say it.

Let it roll on my tongue, get pressed to my inner cheek, let it
fall out to the earth, let the solar rays shine on it,
the rain hammer over it,
the soil encapsulate it,
have it arise.

I Am Not In Love With Anyone

by Renwick Berchild

I am not in love with anyone. Pablo Neruda, Nikki Giovanni,
Shakespeare, and all his fair women, dressed in men’s robes,
have nothing on me.

Flinty, unyielding; that is what they called me.
No tree could brace against my wind.
In my savage silence, I could sabotage all lovers’ din;
heavy, and unmatchable, though, I strike a rock in orange brightness.

A fragile morning

by Jem Croucher

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A fragile morning found me
fragile that I am
and gently took me to the day
to prove it was no sham
I leant upon its shoulders
It supported me right there
and showed me a bright sunrise
as I squinted in the glare

Like a wave

by Jem Croucher

Sometime a whisper
or maybe a shout
Occasionally quiet
but mostly a lout
Always moving
restless, unstill
Rising and breaking
and crashing at will

Power, Perception, Humbleness, and Tramontana in the Form of a God

by Renwick Berchild

I had a dream that Trajan’s Column fell on top of me,
That blue canaries crowed and cawed,
That to ride a minnow I first had to become small and the minnow
Large; I had a dream that tramontana
Stole me from my crib, and set me down upon a mountain and told me,

Where the Wind goes, so I shall go.

by Renwick Berchild

Where the wind goes
So I will go.

If Harmatten calls,
So I depart. The Sahara a cradle so I shall lay.

Should the Westerly
Steal me outright, and collide me with
A forest, a field, a turbine blade

The Henhouse

The Henhouse

The bickering has begun
among the disturbed
chickens in the henhouse.

A rooster flew in
from New York
and crowed unexpectedly.

Music knows best

by Jem Croucher

The power of music
to lift and release
be it with excitement
or calming and peace
Exuding a something
you can’t quite explain
it does over and over
again and again

Musical Contemplation

by graypoet

There are times when a song strikes a note
When we ponder all that we might feel inside
Lyrics might not mean what we think we heard
Yet the melody still takes our mind on a ride.

The World Is A Constant Wave

by Venkat

The world is a constant wave
To cushion you forever
Content with breeze you crave
Longing for shore ever

The world is a constant wave
To give a shell now and then
Being proud to catch you rave
Touching signs of good omen
