Going Blind In The Sunshine

by A. Marie

Watch my eyes, they dip and dive, my hand over my mouth,
my chin in my shoulder, away like the cold – it’s spring. Let’s go.
The trees are shaking off their bitter time spent contemplating their
poesy to sing. Now, they begin the music, green notes illumed
lightbulbs, they’re on. Let’s head outside into the ramose sunshine.

my name out loud
as I welcomed the sunshine

Yellow II (revisited)

by Jem Croucher

Yellow things are mostly there
to serve as a reminder
the fact that summer’s almost here
and is going to be a blinder!

There’s yellow in those daffodils
that arrive in early Spring
and yellow in that forsythia
with all the joy it brings.

Poetic Junkies

by Bipolar Opposites

Original KYLE T. DIBERT, DECEMBER 20th, 2017:

…shooting up the veins of the heart city, – a hundred miles an hour – as a a good junkie does well, and I can tell, that, despite admiration, I am fated for hell & yet oh well I don’t mind where all the ground fell while I was staring up at you through this miraculous well, and you were bankrupt before you decided to sell, and at your coffin, coughing casualties at commiserating children kissing flowers, praying by the hour, to not tower thus so high that one falls and usurps vitality, – power which dwindles stale & dwindles thus more sour; as if in high

There’s blossom in the bushes

with quite some waiting still

Dance in the moonlit night

by dharkanein

In the moonlit night 

We dance to the tune of heartbeats

The daffodils and red roses scatter scent

The fire flies sparkle the moment

The soothing music of crickets

Cool breeze of spring in the garden

What else can we ask for a perfect date

just you and me holding each other

the love tangle
