If only I had known
by Raina Hutchins

If only I had known I’d never hear your voice again
Or hear you whisper sweetly in my ear
I’d memorise each word of love you ever said to me
So when I'm all alone, your voice I’ll hear

If only I had known it was the last time I would see
The man I love with all my heart and soul
I would have held on tighter and kept you close to me
And never would have ever let you go

In My Beautiful Balloon
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

With summer nearly gone, we all wanted to do something special,
And decided it should be daring, rather than the usual and dull.

So, we listed the things we desired to do, but hadn't yet tried,
And we finally settled upon, a thrilling hot air balloon ride!

We thought we'd choose the one, that offered the best scenery,
So we could look down upon birds, mountains and fair greenery.

Like the airliner looks down, from past pink cottony clouds,

Dearest Jesus
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

In your name I humbly pray,
For peace in this world,
And abundance of love today!
We however are not worthy,
And we are never going to be.
For your goodness is unmatched!
Even so we dared to dream,
The most impossible dream-
Of loving the way that You do.
But we were destined to stumble,

Have I continued to oversupply
your pockets with hope
for the pain you to cope.

Author's Prayer
by Ilya Kaminsky

If I speak for the dead, I must leave
this animal of my body,

I must write the same poem over and over,
for an empty page is the white flag of their surrender.

If I speak for them, I must walk on the edge
of myself, I must live as a blind man

who runs through rooms without

Hues of Thanksgiving
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

colored leaves fall down
inside food warmth and laughter
a pause for prayer
it's time squirrels cached walnuts
it's autumn's pretty party

Prayers Answered
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

a rainbow appeared
marking the long drought's ending
song from the treetops

awakening blooms
in heart arresting colors
summer's turning gold

greenest gratitude
rising again from our knees

SONNET XI – The Prayer
by Khayelihle Bongiswa Gamedze

I've seen losers win the race,
I've seen weak ones keep the pace.
I've seen longer shots from way behind,
I've sought a voluble and a voluble was nowhere found.

I made promises, broke them all.
I made golden towers, and I watched them fall.
I made Caesar mine, I made tons of gold.
I sought my book and found my story was never told.

A Time To Be Normal
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Sometimes my head is in the clouds...
Other times my head is in the sand...
Sometimes my thoughts are so jumbled up...
I feel I’m sinking in some far off hinterland...

It’s hard to control my thinking...
A challenge I face every day...
It’s as if my wires are completely crossed...
The mind games that steal me away...

by Amit Shankar

Akin to a prayer
Your name perched on my lips
Like a true, devout mortal
A million chant without a slip

Tempered in my heart
Sailing lucid and light
Surely it will find
The Goddess caught between Black and white
