adorn their sinewy feathers
swoop for worms in burrows
tied to same breath as brothers

Nostalgia revisited

by Devina

(The sky at 5:30 this morning, or somewhere thereabouts)

Skipping over puddles,

They vibrated with our giggles

Slam dunks in waste baskets

Crunchy sound of wheels on gravel,

On a cold wind blown night

A stare-down with the freelance tomcat

Occupied rainy days

My World

by Kerrie Ann Salsac

who lives, who dies,

the Kings and their Queens,

the words on their lips.

A blooming Universe

New eyes and ears

Meanings no longer terse

A child’s growing years

A means to get a grip

To control or let go

Think through an emotional trip

To embrace life with it’s flow

My Two Cents

by Venkat

A rain, no cloud

Smoke, no fire

My silence, so loud

A dream, no desire

In a world bipolar

My voice unheard

Lurch as a drunkard

Welcome to my life
