Poem
by Elizabeth Bishop

About the size of an old-style dollar bill,
American or Canadian,
mostly the same whites, gray greens, and steel grays
-this little painting (a sketch for a larger one?)
has never earned any money in its life.
Useless and free., it has spent seventy years
as a minor family relic handed along collaterally to owners
who looked at it sometimes, or didn't bother to.

It must be Nova Scotia; only there

Spelling
by Margaret Atwood

My daughter plays on the floor
with plastic letters,
red, blue & hard yellow,
learning how to spell,
spelling,
how to make spells.

I wonder how many women
denied themselves daughters,
closed themselves in rooms,

Um... it doesn't rhyme
by Bogdan Dragos

Um... it doesn't rhyme,
she said

I looked at her
You kidding?

And then she shook her head
No, look, this poem
really has no rhymes
at all

Sun
by Michael Palmer

Write this. We have burned all their villages

Write this. We have burned all the villages and the people in them

Write this. We have adopted their customs and their manner of dress

Write this. A word may be shaped like a bed, a basket of tears or an X

In the notebook it says, It is the time of mutations, laughter at jokes,
secrets beyond the boundaries of speech

Writers block
by Amelia Pond

I sat and stared for hours
at the nothing that I wrote
today the words just wouldn't come
no I idea would float.
no inspiration took me
no motivation came
all I had to show that day was a blank and empty page

God's Other Chance To You (Poem) by Christen Kuikoua
by Christen Kuikoua

Humanity is capable of such beautiful dreams
and horrible nightmares,
For Our World Has a lot For every man’s Dream
but Not Every man’s Greed
So you see this is life greatest rule,
it gives to givers, and takes from takers
Those Full of themselves,
on the outside are often starving on the inside
So as sad as it is,
Many people get Heaven and Hell wrong,

When Love Turns Into A Nightmare (Poem) By Christen Kuikoua
by Christen Kuikoua

Oh Sadness, What A Tragedy
Yesterday It was The Time Of Our Life's
But today Is My Day of Sorrow
Why is my heart In deep depression
Like I lost it, but somehow feel it beating

But now the day bleed into nightfall
And Wow Your not here
To get me through it all help me through it all
What I will I do When it Feels Like,

Rain
by Aryan Bhardwaj

The rain did some partiality
In some states was kind,
and in some was cruelty.
some got the worst drought-hit
and some were provided the deluge.
some people yearned for the drop,
and some were provided an amount huge.
The rainfall going down
even the rainforest got hit,
in people's minds, the reason still isn't fit.

Me
by Aryan Bhardwaj

Oh! me in those very known situations,
learning to thrive in those known but unknown situations.

what felt before, a piece of cake,
but wasn't one that appears to be.

then all of a sudden rather appears a rationale opportunity,
changed the irrational behavior and turned to be a completely new me.
