by Anita Lubesh


The shallow draught
of a flat bottomed,
open skiff drifts alone,
moving with its shadow
cross hatched
onto the vitreous water,
vying with the spirits that pour
across the bay.
As moonlight dresses them
they are reanimated –
proclaiming –
they would provoke our eyes
and enliven our dreams.

When leaves
    see their colors, fragrant
When flowers
    feel their blood, green

When grass
    care not to hold fruits, high
When trees
   envy not lush beds, green

by Renwick Berchild

It’s a mad clamor for the door,
Bodies trying to squeeze into a heart that
Divides all who enter.

And I see a devil in you

The devil in you, you deny
And you become a devil

If you take all the pieces
of living, my desires and needs
for softness
in and around and upon
the body, for the pressure to live
outside the skin
as if the penis were an ornament
instead of an instrument
of love in the flesh,

No Corners

Here lies a garden
With no corners
No greener
Or browner

Here lies a garden
With flowers
None higher
Or lower

These feelings
Flowers, upon thy hands
Hold pollens each, under wraps
Of two spirits, in one

To be an air flowing freely
Passing by as the earth go round
Conquering mountains as I surround

What’s Mine

by willowmarie

I recognize this moment,

Untamed, unframed

And wild; I created it.

 I let it flow,

Let it grow

Let it trellis

And border-

Cascade its disorder

On walls

In halls

Of dim.

To See How High They Can Fly

by russtowne

Sometimes words start forming in my head
And that can be a good place to start
But I’m happier with what I write
When words start flowing from my heart

The Shaman’s Horse

by reikiheidi

“I am a circle within in a circle/
with no beginning and never ending…”

Mantra say over and again,
Vibrating within; a meditation refrain.
Circle, sway, shuffle, dance:
Chant and drum drum into trance…
Shaman-like the Spirit moves
Hear the thu-thunder of ethereal hooves-
Flying free riding the Shaman’s Horse
Taking an unusual dream-like course
To the sound of the d-rum d-rum beat
Released from the body Travelling fleet

Alley – A Sestina

by Sorrows In A Serenade

apologies for not updating for very long! Lots of projects and schoolwork, but the busiest period hasn’t even arrived yet! Really very sorry for my lack of discipline >< anyway hope you like this! A sestina, on how we all too often lose our way through the treacherous territory of gold and diamonds. Hope you like it, and appreciate the comments!

In the alley, I meet the Spirit
The maiden of the Fair
Night, shrouded in mist.
Claiming lives
From clutches of play
To join her in the fog
