I have tasted of the world’s wine,
And yet I thirst;
I have gorged myself on earth’s pleasures,
And yet I hunger.

Monster Noises

by Frank Hubeny

My foot pounds hard upon the floor.
A hand grabs on the bedroom door.
The voice says low, “The monster’s here!”
There’s scrambling feet and giggling fear.

~ Charleston’s Mother

by ladyliterati

~ Charleston’s Mother
Steeped in tradition

A foundation built on defiance

Rock by rock, stone, by stone

Blood, sweat and tears

A people pulling together

Uniting in the quest of equality

The chalice of their dreams
Burnt, but not destroyed

Faith and perseverance

Raised the walls, bar higher

He held her hand feeling every breath she took
She watched him intently, a tender caring look
Machines, wires, tubes and sounds faded away
These moments held everything they had to say.

Dogs Bedtime Prayer

by Harry

Submitted by Molly

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-sized bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the centre groove,
My human beings can hardly move.
I’ve trapped their legs, they’re
tucked in tight,
And here is where I pass the night.

that once flowed

water from the spring

Diamante– Grace

by Caddo

Poetry challenge:  Diamante. 

 

Grace
Sacrificial, generous
Saving, transforming, inspiring
More than love, amazing—Most simple eloquence
Sobbing, murmuring, singing
Desperate, grateful

Prison

by wordypenguin

The same old room
I’m waking up again
Windows offer no relief
I’m edged toward the end

My skin’s a book of sorrow
Composed of empty lines
Story of a withered youth
A story of decline

Looming Demigod

by I HAVE A VOICE

574954_518016524879588_269622893_n

I no longer hurry to the passing minutes

Watching dawn fade into sunset shades…

Time reels in and out

Like catching a swooping fish that misses

The hook but must swim the race…

I dent my hours and crash against the

Obstacles of daylight’s mirages and blows,

Moving through the maze
