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

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.

Christmas coming fast;
Soon the day will join the past.
Plan for the present(s).

There Isn’t Time

by markfahmy


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.

The Ancients

by Morgan

The Ancients


Wisdom Spanning countless Ages,

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


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

While the Dance is Speaking;

Linger in the Trance

While the Trance is Seeking;

Ticking Clocks

by markfahmy

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

Track To Kindness

by LuAnne Holder


The poem pierces the night
a whistle that rounds the track
awakening the memory of
what not yet has happened

Measure of unchanneled Mind,

Vision of Luminous Daytide, Singing,

Wisdom of unguarded Temples,

Mystery fortified and Contemplation Bringing;

In The Rush

by Morgan


Amid the soft serenade of light

Caressing the hands of frozen time

June 27, 2016


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
Bad philosophy,

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

by A. Marie

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

Bending In upon the Shrine

It used to be

I’d refer to a calendar

If I wanted to see

What day of the week it was.

Later I didn’t think twice

Because I’d see it on

An electronic device.

When my life becomes too rushed

I’ve learned that’s a perfect time

In a Forgotten Field,

By an Abandoned Wall,

A Portal Awaits,

Enigma to All.
