»Roanoke«

by Bo Lanier, Nov 1, 2016

Well and they came by sea in the 17 century. They had the highest of hopes as they did come ashore the wild wood lands. And setting up housekeeping they were in the best of spirits in the beginning. But in need of more supplies, eventually. Some sailed back to England only to return to a great…  sign in to read more »


»Dusk«

by Bo Lanier, Oct 24, 2016

Oh and as the sun begins to set I come alive / The moon comes curling around the mountains / Like a blue lamp in a dusty pink sky... / I step into the velvet of the night that I love / In my red velvet cape and black gloves, still carrying / A torch for some distant past ancient love and / As the wind…  sign in to read more »


»Nightfall«

by Bo Lanier, Oct 14, 2016

Nightfall and fog off the lake lands. / The ghostly touch of a cold and icy hand / fills you full of fear and loathing. / Creature of the night where are you going? / I follow your shadow through the dark / and cloudy night like a black widow for the / love of your life. / There is a whole lot of mystery…  sign in to read more »


»Vampire Toy«

by Bo Lanier, Oct 14, 2016

Well and his eyes are so hypnotizing you just can't turn away / He has total control now over your mind body and soul / He wants you now and what he wants he gets, yes him / Always finds a way... / He says take my hand and give you to me, bid farewell / To the sunlight forever and for all eternity, you'…  sign in to read more »


»Changing Horizon«

by Mashell Chapeyama, Dec 15, 2015

Why should we look back to talk about a past, recent or so distant / A past declared a rose by our conscious minds, whether real or imagined / A past always better than now being it in culture and morals; declared by ours or ancestors' imaginations / But a past not glimmering in technology and politics…  sign in to read more »


»This kind of love«

by Abongile Gwele, Sep 7, 2015

A love that will never end. That will never be changed. / A love so deep it entangles and marries souls in melodies of hummingbirds and orchestras of the universe's heartbeat. / A love so unconditional the coldest days of June and hottest of November are mirror reflections. / A love so pure the moon…  sign in to read more »


»When love makes sense«

by Abongile Gwele, Aug 14, 2015

The air looks like that song that stays on your fingers and makes hearts smile / Your favourite song tastes like a medley of ice-creamcream, pop-corn and marshmallows all dipped in rich darks chocolate / Food sounds like the orchestra of toes in socks strutting their way on wooden floors / Each breath…  sign in to read more »


»Hey Woman«

by Shylet Noma Clint, Aug 20, 2012

Hey woman, wonderfully and fearfully made. / A flower that blossoms in all seasons, areas and atmospheres. / / Your scent gives breath of fresh air / Your presence brightens the day / / Woman your range and brand does not end / uprooted and planted elsewhere it does not change you, it makes you even…  sign in to read more »


»Afridi Is king«

by Rabi Ul Islam, Mar 8, 2012

He holds his bat with all his might, / The bowlers bowl with full of fright. / He is the man, he is the king, / He smashes every ball out of the ring. / / Once he entered the pitch by chance, / And changed the game in a single glance. / He is the man depended on hard times, / For he is the king of all the…  sign in to read more »


»The candle of life«

by Leo Long, Jan 9, 2012

Fresh from the incubator... we come out a box, / Newly born and eager to burn. / The doctor's smack lights the wick, / A weak flicker is the start. / / In his teens the wind bends the flame to go with the flow, / But flickering moments of dark then light / Teach it straight to grow / And that the way of…  sign in to read more »

»Changes Part 2 (November)«

by April A., Nov 7, 2011

I'm looking around - a year has passed, / The moment I seized is forever to last, / The secrets of cherished November / Still live in the imprints of soft fingertips / You left on my key, in your eyes that eclipse / The various colors of amber. / / The waters of changes surround my shore, / The eyes of the…  sign in to read more »


»Win or lose«

by Fortunate-Hero Lekgetho, Jul 28, 2011

thought life could stop / the day I left home that day / it was like a sound of wisdom / sometimes it stops / it's like a ton of bricks / but sometimes the load is / too much / and defeat stares at you / like a barrel of a gun / / you end up feeling like / running somewhere close to space / but sometimes the…  sign in to read more »


»Up Yonder«

by Taahir Chagan, May 17, 2011

I'm taking to the road / I'm going home / Up yonder / Far up yonder / / The dust-ridden sandy trail / Is lined with reddish orange leaves / That fall gracefully from the big tall oak trees / Which parallel the long winding way / / I'm welcomed by the lively Sunday market / On the cobble-stoned town square…  sign in to read more »


»Dreams Fall like Golden Leaves«

by Paul Gerard Day, Mar 16, 2011

Dreams fall like golden leaves in their mid-autumn dance, / Sunshine is fleeting as it pushes in between each branch. / Desperate to have an influence over dampened ground below, / In vein attempt to warm the earth before the first snow. / / For just like dreams the leaves will rot as winter rain begins…  sign in to read more »


»Summer's Gone«

by Andreas Buchholz, Mar 17, 2009

Summer's gone, / all the leaves are turning red. / Summer's gone, / birds go south, their wings are spread. / / Summer's gone, / western winds they're gonna blow. / Summer's gone, / where they're headin', we don't know. / / Summer's gone, / so am I. / Got things done, / let me fly. / / When the seasons turn,…  sign in to read more »
