Like a wave

by Jem Croucher

imgp0248

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

Respect

by Rhyme In Time

Protect the wage but not the wagerer
Who gambles others’ savings like a game.
Respect the badge but not the badgerer;
To push without authority is lame.

Old men
      and women
Some in smiles younger
      some old
     
Caves in mouth
      Singing songs of life

Shine

by Venkat

I am a drop, miniscule
Wearing a shine
As a razor’s edge
But the shine is not mine

It is from the feet
Of a light, I kiss

by irinadim

Poetry challenge: Acrostic poem 

November is the month of Jacarandas in Australia.

November is the month of Jacarandas in Australia.

 

Joy of spring in
Aussie land
Cantata in D major
Across the landscape
Radiant purple
Adorns the
New vision of the world
Days of bliss and harmony ahead
As we reach out to each other with respect

The Undertow

by Jem Croucher

DSCN9801

Beware the undertow
My Mother always said
Always wondered what it looked like
as the thought filled me with dread

I pictured quite a monster
Lurking down below
Beneath the waves just waiting
But for what, I didn’t know

Whenever I’m nearby
Sometimes a shout, sometimes a roar
Sometimes a whispering sigh

In the modern world
I stake no claim,
Take no responsibility
How could I?
There is a vast gap
One of honoring
And respecting elders,

Extinction

by graypoet

barren

Thoughtful day on what society is coming to be
Looking around today, there is so much to see
Was I raised in that much simpler a time to live
Maybe parents had morals and discipline to give.

If I May

by graypoet

It seems my mind is wandering
Waking, I have more words to say
So if you will indulge me a little
Let me sit and ramble, if I may.

Miss You Mom !!! (English Translation)

by Darshan Gajara

You came into existence with a cost of a life ,
She isn’t there now , but her shadow’s always wtih you..
No calamities could defeat you..

But there was one more person , who dedicated his entire life for you..
If he wouldn’t have been , probably you wouldn’t have existed..
You didn’t get what others’ got normally ,
But you got something special than that..
You got the love of your Close Ones..
But you also got the sadness of that loss..
