»The Old Cowgirl«

by Susan Cooper, May 27, 2021

My mind thinks I’m still a badass like I was at twenty-five / My mind thinks I’m still a badass even though I’m sixty-five / My mind makes my mouth write checks my old body it can’t cash. / / I used to ride every horse, never a fear or doubt within my mind. / I used to walk the stormy beach; daring the… read more »


»Fever«

by Suman Pokhrel, May 21, 2021

Fever painted me all over the body / with its warm kisses of love / for a duration unknown / / Taking everything aside of my own being / it was a marvelous feel / to be cocooned into the grip / of this thin frenzy from head to toes / it was immensely ecstatic to / feel the passionate warmth over the skin… read more »

»I Shall Bid No Farewell«

by Suman Pokhrel, May 21, 2021

Fell in love with these hearts and this soil / these houses, these walls and streets. / / Living a fraction of time somehow / from the fringes of life / I realised some dreams / have lodged in these eyes / some hearts have entered the heart. / / Well, didn’t find life as anything special! / / What heart… read more »


»Before Taking Decisions«

by Suman Pokhrel, May 21, 2021

In how many minds / should I go crazy? / whom should I ask? / / Should I continue to hop / like drops / that jump up / after water / flowing from spout / hits the ground, / or remain transfixed / like stone under the selfsame spout / that despite being lashed / by incessant flow / does not even budge?… read more »


»Making music together«

by Bartho Geldenhuys, May 11, 2021

I have fallen in love, I said / that I have managed to lose my heart / that I found someone to wake up with / where I can hold her and time stand still / / what makes her so different - the question is / different is the first answer - that she is / our souls meet, we reach out to each other / we make… read more »


»A must... but without you, Is just dust.«

by Mphela Audrey, Apr 28, 2021

As soon as everything was approved / We packed our things and moved / We have not gone far / This note is to let you know where we are / We would be honored to have the pleasure / Of your company at our new treasure / / This treasure gets suddenly cold without a warning / Is that not a call for a… read more »

find yourself / in your isolation / in your quarantine / because loneliness / is a gift sometimes / / there are a lot of things / about ourselves / which are yet hidden / which are yet unknown / we have a whole universe inside us / / like rainbow / we have so many colors / of our soul / some colors are so bright… read more »

by Jahangir Kashif, Apr 23, 2021

Friends says to write a book on me. / I says it would a book of ups and downs of life. / A book of love and hate, a book of sad and happiness. / A book of success and failure. / A book of loneliness and socially fame. / A book of understanding and miscommunication. / Would be a book to read on the life of… read more »
