Untainted Grace

by carareevablog

Her head held high, wearing her crown with dignity

Proud of the woman she claimed to be

Carefree of all of life’s mishaps

Life happened to her in a split second

Dragging her pride and her head down with it

As her head continued to hang low the crown started to slowly slip off her head

The once sparkling jewels became a testament of her demise

The mist that rose from her sorrow as the cold tears hit her hot cheeks

Tainted her crown, filling it with rust that clung to the hinges of her heart

by Zenei

Don’t be chased. Don’t be chained.

Forget it and we tumble.

Go back and make peace.

Kalamata Heat

by Jem Croucher

Part 3 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

I found a spot of sunshine
with no-one else around
Overlooking Grecian waters
with just the ocean sound

It was very hot – some forty plus
but pleasant in the breeze
as we sailed to Kalamata
through Mediterranean seas

Enough of This Sh(ee)t

by Rhyme In Time

Some thoughts on the recent events in Charlottesville …

We’ve come so far, so how can this occur?
How is it simple pigment judgment blurs?
How can we still believe humanity
By outward cast divided we should be?

At Sea

by Jem Croucher

‘At Sea’ – 2 0f 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

Slumber with the engine’s thrum
through decks one to five
Come morning though, the sunshine
makes us come alive

Streaming through our window
across a deep blue sea
This borders on perfection
for my soulmate, Sal, and me

tattered soul

As she stood perched like a bird in a tree
An unsuspected felling fell over me
I don’t know if it’s the shyness in her eyes

Crystal Staircase

by Harry

Submitted by Tanique Huddleston
.

When we were younger
We used to always say how much we couldn’t wait to grow up
“Glo up” they say
Pick ya ttittes up
Throw on that “freak em” dress
And “slay” they say..

“Slow down” Mami would preach
Langston Hughes would teach
“Life for me ain’t always been no crystal staircase”..
And yet here we are
Staring life in the face
Wishing we knew then
What we know now

As it trickles, trickles, trickles down
Washing away the grime and stain
Appeasing the thirsty ground.
