Of this world…

by Sandeep

A face lay there in eternal sleep,
No smile.
No frown.
I wonder,
“After all, smiles and frowns are of this world”.

Perils of Pretense

by A. L. O'Prunty

I grew tired of the mundane

The everyday insane:

As they stand

Upon podiums of pretense

Pontificating falsehoods

Lining lying lips…O’Prunty

Hand in Hand

by A. L. O'Prunty

we walked as if unaware

through youthful days

without a care

singing songs of sunshine

and daisy days

of are you mine?

hip-high in wheat-top sways

we walked through our youthful days

a plethora of words

taken out of context

nouns, pronouns

verbs, adverbs

in similitude of mass conjecture

falling on deaf ears.

grey dolphins in time
up from snake-holes

now it limped over, green

My laps for exercise were done,
So I let the water hold me,
Felt the rise and fall as breathing
Filled and emptied out my airways.

Conscience tried in vain to scold me,
For I would not idle linger,
But a moment only savor
All to me the world bequeathing.

Triolet : 2018-09-06

by Venkat

where do I hang my thoughts?
when love has lost its home
tables now jaded, speak no more
where do I hang my thoughts?


windows now strangers
no candles to warm the time
where do I hang my thoughts?
when love has lost its home

Tongues thick
Hold horses
Over oil
Up up up
Go go go
Helium hearts
Threaded thoughts

The state of mind

Calling the stars

Flaunt a little

The love of life.


We lie when woozy

Or we just cozy?

To lighten the world

From the darkness of night

To bring new hopes and vibes

To melt in the love of shine.

He peeled his skin, to see if

the blood has same purity as

the redness in his eyes,

the fact is silence

in the moonshine.


Purity has which colour

red or white

or is it because of the wine,

he coloured him red, to see if

he feels the purity as

the pure love in her eyes.

The sunburns are red

The tanning is gold

The marks are real

The sweat is glowing

With the heat of the town.


She is burning

He is burning

To fire the conscious

To light the lamp

In the heat of the sun.

Having layers so thin

Attached to the strings

Important and must

To carry forward

The loyalty in you.


Is it difficult or easy

To take the burden

Is it inbuilt or

We have to build the talent

To satisfy the norms.

To release the tensed

Coming with drawbacks

In a dose of love.

Stay Up

by Renwick Berchild

They glare, the lanterns of the city, the rooftops lit with minds
that cannot sleep, with eyes

that will not close, and mine are along, the plung
of neuroticism; rest rises up and sudden there’s the tug. We’re
hot, a blade in need of pounding, the urge
to spin, lofty dreams, haggard visions, twisting
our teeth like screws. But the builders build. The makers make.
