by Ben Scott

Dark hair 
deep eyes. 
Like a well I fell into once...

The night sky clear
not a single cloud. 
The world lit 
just by the moonlight .

Lightning came.

Isolation, desolation,
No motives for movement.
Total dilapidation.
A seed -
The need to expand
exceeds the need to be bland.
The need to excel and doing well
brings a different situation.
Re unification..

To ----
by Alexander Sergey Pushkin

I remember the marvellous moment
you appeared before me,
like a transient vision,
like pure beauty’s spirit.

Lost in hopeless sadness,
lost in the loud world’s turmoil,
I heard your voice’s echo,
and often dreamed your features.

Love Thyself
by Wesley Kieswetter

Thy soul so fragile, thy spirit so blurred
As the gateway opens, with one magick word
The light fast approaching, what is this I see?
It’s a thought, a mirror, a reflection of me
It comes even closer, with glistening eyes
Is it something I love, or something I despise?
I hear a soft voice, an echo so slight
In my minds eye, a brilliant white light
The voice getting louder, still can’t understand
Out of the white light, an enormous white hand

The Ghost
by Henry Lawson

Down the street as I was drifting with the city's human tide,
Came a ghost, and for a moment walked in silence by my side --
Now my heart was hard and bitter, and a bitter spirit he,
So I felt no great aversion to his ghostly company.
Said the Shade: 'At finer feelings let your lip in scorn be curled,
'Self and Pelf', my friend, has ever been the motto for the world.'

And he said: 'If you'd be happy, you must clip your fancy's wings,
Stretch your conscience at the edges to the size of earthly things;
Never fight another's battle, for a friend can never know

The Bliss I Missed
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a prolific and enthusiastic artist, like a sparkling jewel rife with colors,
Taking joy from nature themes and others, as in childhood joys of summers.

I painted active people and wilder places, houses, sunsets and exotic birds,
And I was enamored of the old saying, 'A picture is worth a thousand words.'

But, ofttimes I wondered, 'What if pictures could truly tell their own story?'
Would they captivate the hearts of many, like the sun going down in glory?

Still, to fill a violet, crowded canvas, with a flock of redbirds frozen in flight,

by David Littman

The sun produces a blinding light
Without it one can’t see
But to see requires more than light
A mind, a heart, a being

Mankind’s existence requires thought
For truth can’t be perceived
without a view into the light
of what it is to see

With humble heart - Alexis karpouzos
by alexis karpouzos

All this universe, to the furthest stars,
all beyond them, is your flesh, your soul.
And one day, under the great sky in solitude and silence,
with humble heart shall I stand face to face with the abyss,
then, I think, i will understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds,
on water, and why flowers are painted in tints,
why there is music in leaves, and why the waves sending their chorus of voices
to the heart of the listening earth when I sing to make you dance.

they just knew it
by Bogdan Dragos

the last time they
saw him
was when he told them about
that weird dream
he had
in which wine
poured from the tap in
his kitchen

Maybe - Alexis karpouzos
by alexis karpouzos

i know that i shall meet my shadow, one day, is our fate.
I know that, someday, the light ends for us and the deadly gravity will absorb us.
But then, without space and time, without life
and death, the infinite pieces will be reunited,
a deeper union through the tranquility of silence will be born.
And again, a magician spark will shine
and a ocean of souls will flood the universe
and will give birth to stars and grief.
And maybe, just maybe, in another heaven, my dreams will be your dreams.
You see, everything repeats itself and everything will be reincarnated in different forms.
