»Welcome Back From the Dead«

by Bo Lanier, Dec 14, 2016

Well and you left me way too soon just / like that one sad day out of the blue / I cried every minute of everyday and / every night for about a week or two 'til / I casted that forbidden spell in the / shadow of a harvest moon to bring / you back to life... / Well now and look who's back from / the dead,…  sign in to read more »


»Just In Time for the Holidays«

by Bo Lanier, Dec 1, 2016

Well and it seems everybody must be doing their last / Minute Christmas shopping today / So now I avoid the interstate after the standstill I was / In this morning / I've heard your new hit song on the radio twice already / Babe well maybe you're listening to my new cd / Christmas Spirit as you…  sign in to read more »


»Sagittarius«

by Bo Lanier, Dec 1, 2016

Well and you are a freedom / lover if anything so archer / of my dreams go on and / spread your wings as / lightning goes to the sky in / the blink of an eye you / disappear again, born of the / wind...Sagittarius carefree / and adventurous, traveling / heavenly roads and now / only God knows where / you are…  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 »


»Winter«

by Choene Alley Semenya, Sep 11, 2014

O Winter, winter, ay winter, you are so cold. / I tell you what I know and not what I been told. / / O winter, winter, in your presence plants always shrink, / Oh i'm so frigid - I can't breathe, I can't think. / / O winter, winter, why is but your night so long? / Birds no longer put me to sleep with…  sign in to read more »


»My World, My Music«

by Anonymous, Aug 22, 2014

Singing along to the blissful melody of jazz rebels / as I inhale red paint from the dripping wet brush of employment, / the eye of heaven looks down on me / sizzling on a winter afternoon barefoot in contempt. / / Alone in my world / I would sneak a dance or two before / the shades of darkness are drawn…  sign in to read more »


»Ice«

by Richard Thomas, Apr 18, 2013

It soothes my sores / And cools my drinks / And makes the floors / For skating rinks. / It floats in punch / In cubic form. / It's fun to crunch / When I feel warm. / It's great for sleds / And pucks and falls / And penguin beds / And igloo walls. / On frigid days / It's hail or sleet / Or frozen glaze / That…  sign in to read more »


»Dawn«

by Leo Long, Jan 18, 2013

I swung wide my shutters this morning at dawn, / To witness the beauty as another day was born, / Too early I'd risen for the dark of night yet hung there, / Her eyes still sparkeled and indigo graced her hair. / / Slowly as her cheeks flushed with rose / And periwinkle adorned her face at night's close…  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 »


»Loneliness«

by April A., Feb 5, 2012

When loneliness pierces your heart like a thorn, / When memories seem to replay all your past, / When some contradictory feeling is born / To remnants of love that was not meant to last, / Your temple of hope is about to fall, / The shade of your sun is about to fade, / The wheel of your life is reluctant…  sign in to read more »


»Boundless Sea«

by April A., Jan 11, 2012

You just say you will always be there / When I need you right here with me; / I am trapped in the wave of despair, / Dreams escape to the boundless sea. / / I indulge in the sense of December, / In the cinnamon scent I inhale; / This tranquility makes me remember / My old sweet Scandinavian tale. / / It's…  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 »


»The Discovery of Fire«

by Paul Gerard Day, Jul 1, 2011

In winter all the creatures leave / Finding shelter from the cold / And only the toughest venture out / If they are so bold / / One such creature does exist / Who in the snow lands dwells / He stands on two feet instead of four / Or so the legend tells / / He has hair only on his head / And his teeth are…  sign in to read more »

»An Elegy in Winter«

by Peter Little, Apr 8, 2010

In the freezing storm, I sit beneath ancient, blackened elm / upon numbing snow, ready to pass from this realm / it's been but a few days, yet my face betrays the ware of years / an expression of solemnity adorns my face, my cheeks bedewed with frozen tears / along with my frozen heart, which can never…  sign in to read more »


»The Cold Day Unveils«

by Christopher Kudyahakudadirwe, Apr 2, 2009

Nor fertid smell flew the air / from where cometh we know not / sweetness ain't there either, but / huggardness hugs hags in rugs / 'round a wintry hearth. / / Curtained, / the window hath salvation / but daylight never delivers, but / viscous mercurial mucus rivers / down the nose course. / / Grant, sneeze…  sign in to read more »
