Dec11- Nathan Corker

Ten seconds after the explosionI sat on my porch in Hunter’s OakAnd toasted marshmallowsIn the blushed December night.The heat stood stock straight,Daring me with childish eyesTo challenge it, to defeat it,Go beyond the end of the roadAnd relish in the blazing.I took to my Tesco’s lunch bag,Dug out my sandwiches,Watched them go up in smokeLikeContinue reading “Dec11- Nathan Corker”

Nothing Lasts Long- Chitkala Aditosh (Chitkala Mulye)

When the hurricane and the hot sun, The flower beds they wilt and burn; Drying up trees lively lush green, Destroying nature’s tranquility serene; A destined wind takes the petals away, Shaking the trees hard, making branches sway; The memories hidden in the lifeless dry leaves, Are roughly washed away from the trees; The preciousContinue reading “Nothing Lasts Long- Chitkala Aditosh (Chitkala Mulye)”

The Cleansing – Monica C. Voskamp

really simple and heartfelt piece I came across this morning. It begged for share. She dipped her toes in the crystal blue Warm shivers ran down her back The gentle coolness relieving All that was past. She stepped into shallow waters clear Slowly sank down to the earth And just let the water drench HerContinue reading “The Cleansing – Monica C. Voskamp”

“A Big Word”- Nyana Nair

I am happy. Almost.I leave my bed to sit beside the windowthat looks over the road.I stare at everything that lives and dies beside me.I will my brain to think of a rhymethat I can gift this world.I feel that my love for this oceanof people far exceeds my loathing.I am almost happy to beContinue reading ““A Big Word”- Nyana Nair”
