To Li T'Ai Po
by Maxwell Bodenheim

They are writing poems to you:
White devils who have not
Smeared the distant yellow of your life
Upon their skins.
Faces where snob and harlequin
Ogle each other in two, cold colours,
White and red;
Faces where middle age
Sits, tearing a last gardenia;
Faces continually cracked

Fragrant Anchors 2013
by Rudra Kinshuk

IN SEARCH OF HOME

I descend into the tunnel,
spiral darkness on the way.
Stripped fears turn
to romances of adventure.

White candles burn
in the tiger’s yellow eyes.
Shaken-off

Accepting Defeat
by Satish Verma

Where was the empirical
evidence, that you don't exist?
The vibes were becoming
stronger.

The comb has fallen, and
honeybee feels lése-majeste'.
Where the dots end, a
new line starts.

Writing For Myself
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Have you ever wanted to be a poet...
You have no talent, and you know it...
But you keep rhyming words along...
Trying to write that perfect song...

Your friends say your poems all suck...
Find another way to make a buck...
But you just keep on writing anyway...
Because you feel you have something to say...

My China Broke
by Satish Verma

There was an endless war
between you and me O god
from time immemorial, in the
desert zone.

The scorching harsh light
of sun has spread the veins
of earth with burning oil wells.

Green pods will not open the round eyes.

I WONDER
by Gayatri Puri

When you look at me
My heart jumps a beat,
And I wonder
With deep impassioned thunders
Overflowing my mind
Making me bind
Is it real or I'm blind?

One-word garments
by Dimitris P. Kraniotis

Waves of circumflexes,
storms of adverbs,
windmills of verbs,
shells of signs of ellipsis,
on the island of poems
of soul,
of mind,
of thought,
one-word garments
you wear

Battered not Broken
by Carl Sinderby

Battered but not broken,
It's the fear they have awoken,
The bruises hurt the tears commence,
It's only there actions that make no sense,
A life full of pain, Your head filled with blame,
Go take your mind and body,
Go be the chance you take,
All your happiness will be revealed when you make a break,
Don't be broken... take control,
This could be the last chance for parole,

Tall tales and Dark rhyme
by Tammy Darby

My offering today is tall tales and dark rhyme
A glimpse at the nether worlds of antiquity
The unknown creases in time
The heart in all its chaos besieged by illogical emotions
The minds eyes and the human brains foolish notions

Mythology for the followers of the old gods loyal they are
From the pantheon to the jade oceans, cold and deep
And the farthest blue stars
The victims of angry an goddess in her revenge for perceived insults
