Stop and Stare

by Bhavya Prabhakar, India


Stop and stare

At the mirror

Is it the same reflection

When you were guilty?


The guilt raised the voice,

“I am not guilty

Of the old sin

Cemented with heavy bricks

Of the cold war.”

I Can

by Renwick Berchild

I cannot slice the fire,

I cannot cut the air,

I cannot slit the water,

but I can wound you.

I can.

by Renwick Berchild

Men only love us
when they need us, women dip
their babies in, Nereids seeking
to scale their children in armor;
we, ugly selkies, melusines, mer
maids and lads who swim in
black waters, we cannot breathe
the light, merely claw and scrape
at the tops of waves, legs
greeting us with nets and offerings –

On the old oyster beds
as a tide at mid-ebb gurgles
and glints in the midday sun
Seagulls play and water shines

Stones, rolled down her eyes
And the meadows, found a sky
Rain clasped wanderlust leaves
Rolled up a breeze in her moment

Lunar Sea

by Renwick Berchild

So are the seas, bright even in this darkness,
Bright like eyes, who’ve not succumb to death,
With lights still inside, peering from the soul;
This is the ocean, and I linger by her, a ghost.

Fullness of Joy

by Angela Umphers Rueger

A stream flows freely from my heart;
It cannot be stopped—
Laughing, trickling, gurgling, bubbling,
Over weed and rock.

The Truth About Words

by braveandrecklessblog

Was that it was not enough

Simply to speak

Which had lain dormant

Inside of her for so long

Heated and rises.

Steam forms,

Bubbling upward.

No spec of molecule

The naked eye.

High-five on a crystal morning

by Jem Croucher


On the beach path this morning
the warmth of the sun
encouraged me as the
new day was begun
The sea was quite lovely
The breeze very slight
and the shine on the water
was exceptionally bright

by Jem Croucher


Sparkling like diamonds
those beads of the sea
shine in the sunshine
and fascinate me
Sitting here on the shingle
as the tide washes in
I am caught in the moment
with a satisfied grin

The sea from safe distance

by Jem Croucher


The mischievous sea
with the high winds last night
is tossing and turning
and a fabulous sight

I’d not want to be out there
in the chop and the churn
But I’ll stand on the shore
for some lessons to learn

On the beach

by Jem Croucher


On the beach near the water
Breakwater’s lee
Watching the waves
of a soft lapping sea
The sun’s playing hide n seek
behind the grey
But it’s muggy and warm
so I’m happy to play

Running through veins of life
Making its way in a stream
