Recognize Me
by Cheryl Greear

For I am you - whether winged or furry or water bound - I live and die, just as do you.
I see you because you can look at me as well and see that my blood runs through my
body; a body given by the creator, just as yours was given to you.
You live as you choose and make your rules to suit your existence -- yet your rules do
not protect me, for I can not speak to protect my kind and our rights. Therefore, I do
not live; I merely exist, because unlike you, I have no choice.
I hear you because you can hear me; yet you choose not to hear my need for
compassion to live as my creator intended; just as do you.
Your home is my home; yet you destroy your home as well for pleasures sake.
My legs were made to roam, my wings to soar, my feet however diverse were made to

Wind
by Shannon Thompson

With unreputable awe, I take witness to a lulled abounding force,
As subtle arousing whispers sweep through the effervescent valley;
Dried leaves then flutter, in sunlight while trees bow to this
glorious resurrection;
With heaven's breath contoured, the loving consecration
Seemingly echoing the sung message from the wolf's den to God's
gate.
Independence giving this soul prominence in contorted love.
Nature yields this hallowed frame spryly awakened. Those hands adorned with a painted grace, passed on with flight
and speed.

Explanation Of An Antique Gem
by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A YOUNG fig-tree its form lifts high

Within a beauteous garden;
And see, a goat is sitting by.

As if he were its warden.

But oh, Quirites, how one errs!

The tree is guarded badly;

A Diamond In The Rough
by Wilma R. Cole

He is an old man, now -
The brown sinew of his body and hands
Is clearly evidenced in the works
He leaves to man.
A man of humble origin and birth -
He followed the Golden Rule for his fellowman.
He asks only for what is rightfully his;
With respect and dignity he earned with pride.
A man 'so called' A Diamond In The Rough.

Winston and Me
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
Waking up each morning and deciding that I’m going to accomplish something is what I strive for...

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Failing is a learning process, but not attempting at all is a total lack of courage...

“If you're going through hell, keep going.”
Even though I’ve been married twice, I’ll never give up in my search for true love...

“Everyone has his day, and some days last longer than others."

Respect
by Jonathan Tafreg

Do you believe in male domination,
And you want to treat them,
Like their Lord?

To see them working is abomination,
Who are you to women,
Of this World?

To God alone they give an adoration,
If you want the worship,

Into a desert storm
by Slava P, aka Maximus Decimus Meridius

Desert storm, all alone, troops are gone
Trying hard to stay alive, what went wrong?
With this weight on my hands once again
Feel the pain of my friend, can you tell?

Just lay down my friend and don’t say a thing
You did a lot in your life don’t you think?
We All proud of you and you know it
Stay with me, please to the end of it

Day without you
by Slava P, aka Maximus Decimus Meridius

Day without you
Looks like wasted
Feels like wasted 
If you may

Even hours without you
Feels like ages
Feels like crazy
Will you stay?

Ad Piscatorem
by Robert Louis Stevenson

FOR these are sacred fishes all
Who know that lord that is the lord of all;
Come to the brim and nose the friendly hand
That sways and can beshadow all the land.
Nor only so, but have their names, and come
When they are summoned by the Lord of Rome.
Here once his line an impious Lybian threw;
And as with tremulous reed his prey he drew,
Straight, the light failed him.
He groped, nor found the prey that he had ta'en.
