Visionary Heart

by Anita Lubesh

My trembles are you;
a part of you so ingrained,
entrenched within my mental and moral constitution.

I pity there is no eternal power
nor anomaly
in this wayward stack
of melting rainbows –
none at all, it seems,
to guide me.

arrows they bled tears
thin sheets of time
split words under water
in jawless whirls
nails in clouds fill my dream

these sheets of tender ink
leave words under stones
to colour these stitches
fetch love in threads

Evening Solitude: A set of Haikus

by pranabaxom

If friendship measured
In yardsticks of achievements
Prefer enemies


For your professed love
Abandoned those that loved you
Beware betrayal


Wings are for flying
It will be cruel to clip
The wide world beckons


No words are spoken
Silence heavy in our hearts
Forever a lie


Evening solitude
Raging tsunami torments
Forlorn heart sheds tears

This poem was first published on on January 5, 2019.

No Voice Left

by graypoet


Forrest reminded us that life is like a box of chocolates
Who knows what we will get as we go though challenges
There are times we see planets align we feel so blessed
Then we turn around, almost knocked down by changes.

you talk words
and I
speak symbols

you make plans
and I
dream far away

you turn off the tune
and I
still hear it play

Waking Dreams (revisited)

by braveandrecklessblog

Your eyes haunt me

as I wander in this waking dream

the way you look at me

seeing everything I keep hidden

everything that I keep close

you never look away

It is rumored that there are 50 words

In the Eskimo language for snow

I ponder

Why are there not 50 words in the

English language

That I could draw upon

To describe that moment

When your bare skin

Touches my bare skin?

The Calculation of Light Years

by braveandrecklessblog

The distance between us

is not easily calculated using miles or kilometers

or fathoms or light years

this distance

is a living, breathing, mutable thing

shifting between us

Surrender to Decay

by braveandrecklessblog

The words in italics are directly taken from the Beverage Menus at Fermenteria and Tired Hands Brew Cafe. They serves as inspiration for this poem.

He was half gentleman, not beast

An ever charming sentinel

Marked by his military bearing

She found him to have an awake mind

Full of Blue Eyed Soul

Relentlessly dry sense of humor

When Darkness Falls

by braveandrecklessblog

Darkness has settled in

Surrounds me

The cold outside our four snug walls

Frosts our windows

Turns snow into a hard, white crust

The day has been long my love

I have been doing battle with the world today

I have been doing battle with myself

Haiku on Trust

A relationship
Is closer when built on trust.
Fear builds calluses.

On One Knee

by markfahmy


You look at me,
with eyes full of light
Like a hundred windows to your soul
opening so bright.

You smile, and I,
struck with such unparalleled beauty,
cannot but smile at your pretty face
as the sun behind us fades.

I hope you know.. that to me,

You were the blossoming flowers of spring,
You were the precious diamonds shining on an engagement ring,
You were the source of light to my everything.

Sides, we touch the most
Sides, of our green souls
Ripe, in sweet yellow
