In A London Drawingroom
by George Eliot

The sky is cloudy, yellowed by the smoke.
For view there are the houses opposite
Cutting the sky with one long line of wall
Like solid fog: far as the eye can stretch
Monotony of surface & of form
Without a break to hang a guess upon.
No bird can make a shadow as it flies,
For all is shadow, as in ways o'erhung
By thickest canvass, where the golden rays
Are clothed in hemp. No figure lingering

Visions And Interpretations
by Li-Young Lee

Because this graveyard is a hill,
I must climb up to see my dead,
stopping once midway to rest
beside this tree.

It was here, between the anticipation
of exhaustion, and exhaustion,
between vale and peak,
my father came down to me

Christmas Is Really For The Children
by Steve Turner

Christmas is really
for the children.
Especially for children
who like animals, stables,
stars and babies wrapped
in swaddling clothes.
Then there are wise men,
kings in fine robes,
humble shepherds and a
hint of rich perfume.

The Power Of Ideas
by Anthony Shurland Philland

The power of ideas are immeasurable
They are the hidden treasures which lies
Deep within each and everyone of us
When we take the time to mind them we will find
That they are more precious than diamonds

Ideas which may seem insignificant
Has tremendous power within them
They are the genesis the initiation the foundation
Of all invention and everything which

War Is Never Over
by Cecil L. Harrison

War is never over
Thought the treaties may be signed
The memories of the battles
Are forever in our minds

War is never over
So when you welcome heroes home
Remember in their minds they hold
Memories known to them alone

World Of Care
by Pijush Biswas

What's life in the world of care
If world doesn't know what you are,
One conjested room gathered
May give all and be any sword
To live life unfearful to others,
But to remain, shown thousand doors,
And in limit none remember
Or you afterall ne'er appear
To see again what's good or bad,
All whom you left, or had all love

At the Rainbow
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

at the glossed rainbow
sky and grass held varied hues
bright days were foreseen

vast mood umbrella
nature's smile turned upside down
in green ecstasy

from the stained rainbow
I saw teal world was changing

But Why
by Mahtab Bangalee

But Why
I am the person, a human being
I belong to a certain tribe by faith
This is the field where I walk
This is the home where I live
In this pond, I bathe
In this river I catch fish
In this green forest, I wander listening to the song of birds
Wherever I go in this world is mine, human

One Bullet
by Mahtab Bangalee

I thought I’d go too far away with you
Where our dream will be true
But one bullet shatters the flower
Which spreads the scent of love in the air

I thought I’d win one day the throne of God
Where our prayers are compiled a lot
But one bullet stabs the hands of the praying
Which embraces you as a true human being

Human Nation
by Mahtab Bangalee

Kingdom of War makes history
Child to old spends time misery
Wounded hungry suffers to death
Dead Warriors has no champ math
World’s nation out of harmony
