Static Force

by Renwick Berchild

Our hands have become limp.
I guess this is when the leaves fall off the trees.
The Cascade snow fills the reservoir for my home,
but night and day, all I hear about is our rain.

This Feeling of Loneliness

by pranabaxom

I wrote this poem in Hindi couple of days back.  This is a rarity for me.  Hindi is not my mother tongue and Hindi grammar,  specially keeping track of the change in gender of the subject / object / verb combination is difficult for me.  From time to time I did venture in writing a few.  I translated the poem to Axomiya ( Assamese – my mother tongue)   and to English .  Posting these below with English translation first followed by original Hindi poem and then Axomiya translation.
( In the Assamese translation, the translated word for Eerie ( or strange) is a compound word “Advut”.  Even with my best try, my PC ( Windows 10) will not allow this compound letter/ word to be written properly.  So I was forced to replace it with a synonym, Achahua.  

Eerie this feeling of loneliness
Lips have not kissed the bottle

Divergent Thoughts: Set of Haikus

by pranabaxom

In the name of God
Millions tortured, maimed and killed
Still preach the gospel

The prophet of peace
Followers kill in his name
Mute spectators all

Wet Feet Are Part Of Life

by Renwick Berchild

Worry about me later,
for barbarians are coming over the hills,
carrying long pikes and angry words,
searching for reasoning they do not possess.

My sleepless nights are a gene inside me,
melatonin leached from my skin,
my fascination with the moon, my dark monarch
taking flight to greet the lamps lighted.

Where Are The Clocks?

by Renwick Berchild

Where have all the clocks gone?
I cannot tell the time,

not without one strapped to my wrist,
or that rectangular block
producing radiation by my thigh.

The World of the Day!

by Tanya

I wondered what the world meant..
Was it the love that people spread?
Or is it the hatred which actually stands?

It’s love, they said,
Which linked all in this den.
But there stood hungry men,
Who craved for the blood of these men!

This World, A Seat

and eyes linger in deep caves

when snow flows into the heart

Beautiful Happenings

by Renwick Berchild

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

Green

by Venkat

When leaves
    see their colors, fragrant
When flowers
    feel their blood, green

When grass
    care not to hold fruits, high
When trees
   envy not lush beds, green

For the deer, I waited as a lion
To the cheetah, I was too late

For the fish, I shot my eye as a stork
To the kingfisher, I was too late

Sands and Gold

by Venkat

image

Your world, made of gold
To my eyes, perched on your heart
Squealing chirps, you read as a song
Upon every corner, you hold as a branch
As I come, as I go, with wings uncertain
You hold this freedom, you give
By a home, warm as a nest

Ashes and dust

by justinvanweerden

When I was younger than I am to day
This is what I used to say:
,,When I grow up I want to be a policeman”
Well I didn’t became police just a man
Still I am the same as I was back then
I am still doing everything I can
I’m still loved and I still love
For me that was always enough
But now I am older I am seeing more
I See things I used to ignore
Back in the day when I watched sesamestreet
When I didn’t know a heart could bleed

Your eyes, slipping into my world
measure the notes, I play not
Your ears, holding your love
read colors in the dark

I Protest

by thom amundsen

bw-shake1

I walk into the fray, to suggest, I disagree with the status quo.

There it begins, our ability to change,

We do need only the challenge to create the fear of reprisal.
