Certainty?

by Jem Croucher

I am I think
and almost sure
that this what
my life is for
I think I’ve solved
the mystery
But then again
could just be me

Maybe

by John S

There is a secret around the corner
that the roses will be red instead of pink;

the sunset and sunrise will both illuminate
the dark moments – far more eloquently than any word.

There are remnants of language,
The laughter of loved ones and strangers
are beauty in a spattered world –
and strung-together notes of the discordant are melodious when unfurled.

There is a depth in every eyeful gathered from a window
and a coolness in the soil grasped by each hand.

You feel the heat that summer’s afternoon conceives,
and I hear the whiskers of October’s morning in the leaves.

There are shadows that crawl in the day
and charming smiles that ornament a night.

And this is truth’s impassioned plea to our humanity,
and affirms the secrets we sometimes cannot see –
perhaps, life is our communal way to share
and maybe, each one of us is rare.
******
The events of this past week have weighed heavily on me – the loss of two very successful, highly creative individuals to suicide, and the realization that this type of hopelessness impacts far more people than we know/understand. There is such beauty and importance in life, and each one of every one of us has a rare gift to share with others. Remember this.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.

A Tiny Drop

by markfahmy
single-drop
If the world is an ocean
And, I, just a drop
That moves along the collective wave motion
Secretly wishing that it would stop
 
Whirlwinds, tornadoes circulating through
And I, a tiny drop, in the midst of it all
Does not know what it should do
Bumping and turning till it finds its role

Belief
Teaches my heart that All is Possible,
All is Ready Standing, Waiting upon my own Acceptance,
My own Belief, my own Unfettering Faith
To Set Free the wheels of the universe

Like a Pallet of Paint to Bedeck a barren canvas with Depths otherwise Unknown,
Stand Ready to unmask me.

Pondering over my footprints..

by Sandeep

Footprint2

Over the sand-dunes
That I walk upon,
My footprints are getting lost
Or, erased by the winds of time.

But, what is getting created,
Through me,
Isn’t just a footmark alone,
But, a phenomenon,
That is changing this macrocosm,
At every footstep,
Which not even time can erase.

Hen

Life is a hen
In search of its chicks, hidden around
Through tunnels
Across rivers
Around mountains
Over seas
On clouds
Into dark planetary space
In thick jungles

Keep moving, keep moving
Fear not your brain heating
A punch on the heart, feels hard
Not by the blow of that shoe
But a mind you dress in rock

Umbrella Terms

by suicidallyanonymous

i.
There’s hesitation upon staring directly
into the abyss of your eyes,
and it quite possibly
scares me.
There’s a recognizable connection
with the deficiency in our kneecaps;
we are both broken
from falling.

I guess you can see it, too:
the shame;
the guilt.
Quick.
Look down and walk away…

Purpose of Life

by Venkat

From my archive…

To some, life is love

A way to happiness

To some, a white dove

An inner peace to bless

To some, life is power

A chance to command

To some, a fragrant flower

With nature and woodland
