»Same Old Wine«

by Viv Vamblie, Jun 15, 2018

They gave us the elections / Kept filling our heads full of lies / Can we trust in new directions / While the promises are in disguise / Well someday the truth will catch us / Hope it don’t catch us by surprise / / Then they preach this thing religion / But show no faith at all / Follow suit on Sunday / But… read more »


»Where«

by Viv Vamblie, Jun 12, 2018

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, / Where knowledge is free / Where the world has not been broken / Into fragments by narrow domestic walls / / Where words come out from the depth of truth / Where tireless striving stretched it’s arms toward perfection / Where the clean stream of… read more »


»Great is thy faithfulness«

by Maxine Smith, May 15, 2018

Don’t apologize for who you are / Don’t apologize for where you come from / / Don’t apologize for where you are going / Don’t apologize for your greatness / / Don’t apologize for your achievements / Don’t apologize for leaving, those behind who didn’t believe in you / / Don’t apologize for being honest… read more »


»My Passion Burns«

by Williamsji Maveli, May 14, 2018

My passion burns, as fires fume, / Your touch move the skin, / The breath of you, the heat you share / It burns so deep within / I shall not dare to cover the flame / To ever repress the fire / As you meet me where we do / we share each one’s desire / So, touch me as you always / have with a softness wet, / I… read more »


»Burning Sun«

by Williamsji Maveli, May 14, 2018

I was crawling deep down the wood, / Flowers of love blossomed on head, / Red, yellow, blue, green leaves smile, / Waiting to greet the lovely dawn for a while / Looking at the bounty of burning sun / Warming in his strong arms for a soft embrace / Nestled in the comfort of elegance / Fearless in the… read more »


»Life is a Seashore«

by Williamsji Maveli, May 14, 2018

Where blue the marine reaches infinite and superb, / Its ever-changing tides of love light, never to curb, / Beating against the sandy shore, smashing on, off, / The fervent vision, on and ever on, breath of puff. / / Beyond the circled boundary of the lonely sky, / Towards enchanted lakes and rivers of… read more »


»Getting Old Yet Remain Young at Heart«

by Sava Hassan, May 4, 2018

Looking at my face in the mirror / Fills my heart with horror / A face that is old / Through it, a story of agony is told / Yet my eyes show wisdom that is gold / / A heart is pure and young / A well power that is strong / A desire for happiness that is profound / A mind that is always sound / / Getting old… read more »


»Back to Love«

by Hind Boujghagh, Apr 1, 2018

Before the door of the one love, / The cycles of suffering and joy playing, / The conflict between this body and soul, / A dark night turned to be eternal, / Yet when the first ray… read more »


»Sinful prayers«

by Hind Boujghagh, Apr 1, 2018

Every sacred label there is, / I am, yet I am not! / / For the soul to befriend love, / Spirit first matured in duality, / / Grew openness, embraced the whole, / Sank in doubt, transcended it all! / / Wisdom is drawn in the plane of opposites, / Hidden behind reflections of foolishness; / / To reach for… read more »


»The unselfing wind«

by Hind Boujghagh, Apr 1, 2018

Spirits on the roads to nothingness, / Humming through voices of yesterday, / Savouring the tunes to be play the day, / All memories vanish in utter forgetfulness! / / In the long lost kingdom of despair, / Where shapes of being all uncolored, / Heavy rain came, then transformed, / Holes of darkness into… read more »
