A Monsoon Love Poem
by Tara Arya

Eagerly I scour the skies
For clouds dark and heavy
Awaiting the life giving winds
Pregnant with promises
So many secrets
Shared between you and me

Scorched by the summer heat
I lie withered , almost defeated
Fervently , silently awaiting

Green Chile
by Jimmy Santiago Baca

I prefer red chile over my eggs
and potatoes for breakfast.
Red chile ristras decorate my door,
dry on my roof, and hang from eaves.
They lend open-air vegetable stands
historical grandeur, and gently swing
with an air of festive welcome.
I can hear them talking in the wind,
haggard, yellowing, crisp, rasping
tongues of old men, licking the breeze.

Ozymandias
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: 'Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Jacaranda
by Tara Arya

On a dull Monday morn
As I stare vacantly forlorn
A sight shocks me out of stupor
The Jacaranda blooming in splendor...
Tresses of vibrant purple
Forming a magnificent spectacle
Ever so gently swaying
Celebrating life, mocking
The scene subtle yet so sharp
Whirls me into a time warp..

The Statue And The Bust
by Robert Browning

There's a palace in Florence, the world knows well,
And a statue watches it from the square,
And this story of both do our townsmen tell.

Ages ago, a lady there,
At the farthest window facing the East,
Asked, "Who rides by with the royal air?"

The bridesmaids' prattle around her ceased;
She leaned forth, one on either hand;

Lovers' Lips
by Blaine B

"Soul meets soul on lovers' lips" – Percy Shelley
Soul mates.
Our connection was so pure,
Our hearts combined as if they were made for each other,
As if we were made for each other,
And when your hand
Meets mine,
That connection is only made stronger,
Your fingertips shock my skin with pure joy,
Your lips send a jolt through mine,

The Middle Ages
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

We are caught up in the middle, of our passionate love affair,
In a world still so young, sweet dreams can blossom anywhere!

Passion between us.
by Karina M

The fire burning between us as the cold metal behind my back anchored us to the earth. Lightheadedness making me fly up so high as I held in my breath.
To forget about everything and only be you and I in that small box. That’s the only fire I wanna be chasing.
