The Poem of a Living
by Gulhaider Zaidi

They say, poetry makes you imaginary
Far lost in words... disconnected
When they themselves began their lives
Singing rhymes, poems... twinkle twinkle li'l star
Sleeping to their gran's lullabies
Frolickin' in the farms...to the poetry of tall grasses
Dreaming of nature's poems...its soul rests within you
Growin' up with your beloved alongside
Writing letters to your love... replete with poetry so melancholy...
When thy love jilts you...you weave a song

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

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,

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.

The Thick Skins
by Satish Verma

Anointed truth
had no path. Path
was the truth.

Not a play of
emotions. I am talking
about the transparent
leaves pressed in the books
of fake religions.

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

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...

Poem on poems
by Jagrut Gupta

Thoughts on paper,
Emotions in ink.
Verse that shows
What the artist may think.

Not just words
That rhyme or not.
It's a writer's feeling,
His deepest thought.
