Counting the days

by Jem Croucher

And I am watching time
I’m counting off the days
when I can tread those chalky paths
down hidden Downland ways

Spiralling

by Jem Croucher

And so another weekend
and another week to come
Life continues, spiralling
with work and play and fun
And time continues marching
though at times I am bemused
as it can go slow or fast or even
backwards! I’m confused.

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

Connected

by frankhubeny

If there’s a way from x to y
The space in which points live and die
Is more or less connected.

Happy New Year 2017

by frankhubeny

Poetry challenge: new  year poem.

.

A clock is very useful.
It marks away the past
With little jumps that we can count.
We know how long stuff lasts.

There Isn’t Time

by markfahmy

thereisnttime

I hope you realise before it’s already too late.. that there isn’t time.

There isn’t time for you to feel worthless,
There isn’t time for you to feel sorry for yourself,

There isn’t time to sink into the waters of the past,
There isn’t time to recount the failures of yesterday,
There isn’t time to dwell on relationships that didn’t last,
There isn’t time to repress the words you always wanted to say..

Saturn Peering through His Ring, Dreaming in the Dark

by A. Marie

Ten thousand one wings in the lion’s ring,
Holy and houndish in pursuit from mountain;
Trembling are the shadows of the dogdayed age,
Widowed from the Summerland, adieu.

Witness to a thousand Dreams,

Watching from the Depths of Twilight,

Where Illusion masks more than it Seems.

A fall from grace II

by Jem Croucher

20161004_084503

Sadly now the Bridgewater Canal
a shadow of its glory days
is almost forgotten and hidden from view
in Manchester’s streets and broadways
Now twenty-first century pubs and bars
vie for trade where once it was steel
Nightlife and partying along its towpath
hide a wound that time cannot heal

Ticking Clocks

by markfahmy

clock-arrows
The clocks kill me with their relentless ticking
Like a march of hungry soldiers in search of war
Blood and bones instead of the fruits I should be picking
Clock arrows ferociously eating inside my core

The Cycle of Life

by dinamicdynasty

A seed in time

Slowly germinates, slowly develops

A snip here, a snip there

A prune here, a prune there

 

A beautiful seedling it develops into like Spring

Sometimes bending, sometimes straight

Other times crooked

On rare occasions, a  support given to strengthen it

Guns

by A. Marie

Guns lay down bodies and we still fold
Our clothes neatly in tall towers, in rows across the bed.

We give up lighters for matchsticks, letters
For the rattle of keyboards and hopeful we climb staircases
Towards the moonbeams that sit on the landing.

Upon Some Other Shore

by A. Marie

Next to me is a pillow with a hole I can not fill.
The chill of Memory empties her cup.

It never comes. The fruit rots before the ripening.
The darkness arrives before the dawn and light.

The Grey Hair

by A. Marie

Single silver,
Your shining countenance tells a long tale.
Your glow in the streetlight sings a song.

Hospital visits, sleepless nights,
Mornings flipping eggs and
Ballpoint pens scribbling
Death,
Dreams,
Bad philosophy,

Dandelion

by Jem Croucher

Screen Shot 2016-06-04 at 10.12.37

The dandelion may be a weed
but it’s a very lovely one
With fronds all bright and yellow
reflecting summer sun
So I’m glad I’m not a gardener
for I’d encourage them to grow
Because I am quite fond of yellow
as those who read my poems know

Beautiful Happenings

The world is uncertain.
Continents split, needs are denied, hearts stop,
Bridges collapse and rivers flood,
A child can rise from the dead.
