Sparks of divinity
by sookdeo manansingh

Like a hunter's weapon
target to find it.s prey
the knowledge clear in my mind
will trace a way
the clouds travel with the wind
to shield the earth
I see no difference between the hunter
and the clouds
for they carry the same vision bother moment to capture th

I Feel Words
by Saleh Ben Saleh

I praise the wise and respect the wisdom of every old and young, for when they speak they pave the way to every poem or song.

There is a charm in all their words and phrases short or long. In what they say you should believe until you prove them wrong.

When wisdom speaks I always listen to thoughts of brilliant minds, just like a gem or precious stone or gold in haunted mines.

I feel the words and see them spark in corners everywhere, sometimes I even smell their scent floating in the air.

A set of words in form of art could take your breath away, for classy words will make you feel in heaven you want to stay.

Address Spoken By Miss Fontenelle
by Robert Burns

STILL anxious to secure your partial favour,
And not less anxious, sure, this night, than ever,
A Prologue, Epilogue, or some such matter,
'Twould vamp my bill, said I, if nothing better;
So sought a poet, roosted near the skies,
Told him I came to feast my curious eyes;
Said, nothing like his works was ever printed;
And last, my prologue-business slily hinted.
"Ma'am, let me tell you," quoth my man of rhymes,
"I know your bent—these are no laughing times:

DEAR HUMAN: ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
by alexis karpouzos

Dear human,,
You shine, you fly and rise
and fall and die.
Remember and cry,
you hurt and endured
and you heal and forget.
You live through the beauty of messing up
and the grace of stumbling.
You're flawed and fabulous.

From Lucretius
by Richard Crawley

Tis sweet to stand on the firm shore and see
A swimmer striving with the billows' breath;
'Tis sweet afar to sit when battles be,
And see men threading the grim dance of death.
Not that to gaze on others' toil and pain
Gives any peace or pleasure to the breast,
But that the thunders of the foe and main
Wake up new beauties on the face of rest.
Sweeter to stand on Wisdom's height serene,
And through the mists that hold the nether air

Wisdom from the Mouths of Monsters
by Alex Rose

If monsters have mouths
Then what do they spout?
Is it truth that rebounds
Through their teeth?

If monsters have lungs
That means that they've sung
All the songs that one hears
In the deep.

Together, alone
by Simon Deeley

No shadows in the field, save these two
We stand together, alone,
Our arms entwined
Our shadows merged around our feet
Casting an unused shelter.

We look to the horizon,
Through hedgerows,
Beyond the church
Its spire hosting a choir of blackbirds

Aftermath
by Lea Noir

The books say that with the years, there comes knowledge,
somehow I know now less than when I was a child.
I only know that the stars didn’t shine anymore the way they used to.
I know there isn’t only the good, the bad, and the ugly but the in-between.
