Nest of Wonder

by Venkat

fires, they gleam in rings

on your fingers, molten in amber


winds, they clasp as chains
on your eyes, in hollowed homes

snowfall, dance in buried silence

your feet, dream of voices to hold

waters, they clink as fireflies do

your heart, drip thoughts in the dark

Waves, they took

For your mixed feelings
In this hurricane of words

And you longed for a game
You loved to stir thoughts
And floated on cubes of wonder

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9355

As a candle burned into the night
the poet played a game
Chasing words that tried to hide
behind the flickering flame

But however hard the poet tried
he could not catch but one
The words were quick to disappear
as they were having fun

The Walk

by Venkat

She took me on a walk
And I walked so, on her mind

For moments, it felt water
As I sunk with stones I carried
In my feathered heart
Till I flapped those limbs
To hold edges, back in the eye

When I know not
where lies the end

This thought
A child of time
Has no roots, to hold
Has no fruits, to bear
Then come its sisters
And it finds roots, to bear
Then come its brothers
And it finds fruits, to hold

A meteor, streaked
Fuelled by happiness
In finding shades

To gloat in the gains
Created in bricks of sweat
Of yesterdays
