There are times when we seem too obvious
Feelings and desires seem out of place
Then there are the times we stay quiet
Almost feeling that we should hide our face.

~ A Happy Place

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ A Happy Place


My ‘Happy Place’ is the farm

Where I knew not danger

Knew not harm

When bright-eyed wonderment

In upcast eyes, shone

Before Time turned the pages

Dreamy dense diamonds dream dance

~ Deep 

by A. L. O'Prunty

Beautiful, unique Jagged pieces of

Who we are

Who we are meant to be
As life carves our existence

Respecter of none

~ Thoughts Glide

by A. L. O'Prunty

Poetic thoughts glide across my tongue as dainty feet, waltzing a marble floor,

Wrapped in word, my mind soars beyond the either and I surpass self

I am neither here or there, but, suspended between realms; weightless

With hues of sky-blue-pink,

growing pains of the rain

by B

if water were beings who
lived with hope, breathed with
lungs, walked with a pulse
as we do, then maybe when they were born
they were the golden dew – and then the Sun

~ Being Human

by A. L. O'Prunty


“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

I Thought

by graypoet



I thought about memories of you last night
But it made my heart ache being alone
So I shifted thoughts to things I remembered
And I thought of times that made me smile.

Thoughts, they come
In plumes of green and blue
Thoughts, they squeal
In voices shrill, in songs sweet
Thoughts, they touch
Whispers soft, scratches hard
Thoughts, they hold
Moments of wonder, pauses sad

Forgetting selfishness and greed
There’d be peace throughout the land

Love, in Black and White

These words, my love
Thoughts on this mind
In soft strokes
Shade the depths
Of truths we touch
On shadows we beam
in Black and White

‘Still I Hold You Dear’

by danielschwamm


There was a rip within my heart
when you did depart
A tear that I do wear
Now that you’re no longer near—
Still I hold you dear.

Poem of the Day — Passed in Wrapping

by paturnerlee

Passed in Wrapping

Crinkle cut, skirt dressed in light blue flashes

Scribbling mischief at a past revelling party

A masterful recovery notion

Bought by calm and distant cousins

My restful; in tones of peeled orange, tangy but bitter on the tongue

Litmus test drive reservists on the way to a mainline station

They will get more than they bargained for

Tripping on a kerb whilst phoning for a fix in the morning

Carbon dating triple knocking at the door; trying to get into another reality

~ I Had Forgotten

by A. L. O'Prunty

Sacred words of prayer

Nights on bent knees

Hands folded in a plea
Holding the grain of a mustard seed

As if my very soul hung in the balance

And the scale tipping, tipping, tipping
Wounded, though in disguise

~ Seldom Have I Seen…

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ Seldom Have I Seen…
God in humanity

Fulfilling all his glory

Glowing in the aftermath of,

Of, completeness
Exceptions being

The beauty of birth

That first breath

Sudden cry

Innocence in pink
The care free toddler

Laughter resonating

Tickeling a household;

~ Blurred Lines

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ Blurred Lines
Dreamy eyes scan the morning mist

Blurred lines; images of the Impressionist
A hint of peach pink peaks above mountains

Elongated blue hues of stratus clouds laze
As if a morning stretch was paramount
Playing in folds of curtains caught in breeze
