An Hourglass and Sand
by Tammy Darby

Why are the traits of creativity and insanity
An hourglass and sand
Is it an inherited genetic defect?
Or a wonderment of man
An anomaly of nature
A chemical imbalance in the Ribonucleic acid
A minuscule knot in the DNA strands

Many minds revered and unknown don the genius crown
The emotive disturbing creations of Goya’s dark-stained hands

A Bitter draught
by Tammy Darby

I drank the bitter draught of that which they call affection
And spewed it from my mouth in distaste
Finding it lacking in truthfulness and loyalty
And a propensity for laying the soul to waste

Again, I brought the crystal glass to my lips
Once more, spew it from my mouth
I found no sweetness in a mixture of false emotions
Of constant lies and doubt

Cherish
by Khalid Hasan

I like my woman strong
like a cup of coffee
bitter to the core
yet soothing and loving
inspires to write a poem
Her aroma will be strong
Enough to suppress my lust for other
she will be like summer storm
Leaving me wanting for years
like ash cloud on the horizon

Vanishing stars and Endless nights
by Tammy Darby

It is common knowledge amongst those of ink and pen

The silent ones who thrive and bloom in the cold darkness
Devoid of sound and beyond human sight
Kindred souls writhing in tempestuous maniacal rhyme
Boldly defiant of normalities laws, realities, boundaries, and time.

La scia d'argento della luna
by Nastasimir Franović

La scia d'argento della luna

inizio di giugno
la notte della luna tessuta finemente
tracce di raggi luminosi si diffondono sull'acqua argentata
superficie tremolante come i tremori dei nostri corpi
luci galleggianti
zattere per i nostri sogni
l'armonia dei suoni notturni
come un discorso notturno
