»Ghost Town«

by Bo Lanier, Oct 20, 2016

Standing in the among the ruins of what / Used to be a thriving little gold fever town / I swore I heard music and laughter coming / From the half-moon saloon, I walked around / But nobody could be found still I could of / Sworn I just saw a cowboy walk chasing / An Apache in a cloud of dust well I felt a…  sign in to read more »

Well I'm taking a midnight flight out of Harrison, TN tonight / I just gotta take a break from old man winter and my / No good for nothing lazy ass lover, so just like a night bird / In flight I am leaving you and this cold frozen dead tree / Town tonight arriving in Summerland Island morning / Light…  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 »


»The beat in Beauty«

by Kgomotso J Kgopa, Dec 11, 2013

Music... / The only way to describe her / For she moves / Left and right pedalling her feet / Short cut hair / Body shaped like a pear / Majestic hand manoeuvres / Moving synchronous to the beat / As she oozes down the street / / Slight jingles / Articulated by her bangles / Dimples / Slight pimples / With a…  sign in to read more »


»The Future Looks Like Summer«

by Natachja De Weber, Jan 7, 2013

It's kinda foggy outside, / But the rain has dripped dry. / Looks like heaven is all cried out. / I went from hurt and despise, / To feeling lost and deprived. / It looks like hope has finally made its way round. / / And the air smells like flowers, / And the grey skies turn to blue. / And the future…  sign in to read more »


»Do You Remember?«

by Sakhile Koaho, Oct 11, 2012

Do you remember when we first met / words were exchanged / presence felt, beauty appreciated / no numbers yet / target was marked and I knew what to do / / next thing we're smiling / am on my bird eye view / I must have been flying / / cloud nine! something was in the air / / you made me feel brand new…  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 north-west sky«

by Maureen Direro, Jul 29, 2010

I am used to the Joburg sun / That would have a taste of too many gases and fumes / I would wake up before it would rise up / It showed my most strong elements it had ubuntu / And when I had shifted from Joburg, and went to Mafikeng / It was like taking a step to freshness and stress-free, clean air / It'…  sign in to read more »


»The Cottage«

by Andrew Eaton, Mar 4, 2010

Home away froma household / Escape to, is leaving everything behind / Weekends offer serenity from it all / Freshness prevails over surroundings polluted / An urgency replaced with calm / Dullness fills a world of chaos / Minimal upkeep gives reason to visit / Rustic preferred than perfection / A place of…  sign in to read more »


»Summer love«

by Happy Towers Mhebheru Mhlongo, Mar 23, 2009

Summer love let me in / Fill me with some more love / Sue me for letting you go / Find some space in your heart / To make me happy again / Don't make me cry and / Wipe the same tears I wiped last summer / Summer love, my love, my lamb / Come control me and share life with me / Consume my heart is forever…  sign in to read more »


»The Sun Devotee«

by Jayram Daya, Feb 10, 2009

Rays disturbs the sleepy darkness. / Humble devotee's up in freshness. / Worshipers wait in respect. / Dew drops remains to protect. / Whispering breeze blows to inspect. / / Tapping energy until it sets / With one seed life is on the run. / Green was the fields with no regrets. / Yellow are the farms when…  sign in to read more »
