Not Afraid

I am not afraid, Not enough to hold me back, I will pay what must be paid And manage any lack That may be the result. I will live and laugh And not find fault If I should find the aftermath Is worse than I expect and I must struggle a while; I will go on and not forget To savour what makes me smile Sign in to see full entry.

Half Lines

I'm writing half lines and scraps of verse, Nothing much and nothing good, Each attempt seems to get worse Nothing working as it should; Ideas appear but never stay Long enough for me to do Anything but simply say "My darling, I love you" Sign in to see full entry.

No Problem

Quiet, still and unintrusive, Sometimes easy to forget, Often unseen or elusive He was her safety net; No need for fame or attention, Just there to catch if she should fall; A role too natural to mention And "no problem" after all. Sign in to see full entry.

Aliens

A little green man from outer space Left his small but happy alien home And came down to visit the human race To tell them that they are not alone. He contacted leaders: presidents and kings To bring them his happy news But they wanted to make him tell them things Other than what he'd choose: They... Sign in to see full entry.

The Paper

They sell hatred wrapped in the pages Of self justified and imagined news, In their diatribes and careful rages, Their carefully constructed views Of how we should fear the world might be. They sell judgement in their sordid tales Of the evils of the willing poor And how a welfare system fails To... Sign in to see full entry.

Weaving rain and sunshine, Making a scarf to show the world The love and beauty that surrounds Every moment of the day. Making that moment, one time When wonder was hurled To float high above the ground And brightly stain the morning's grey, Delight's symphony for weary eyes: A rainbow straddles...

A Sinking Ship

He stood on the deck of a sinking ship Watching the string quartet play And waiting until the bow starts to tip Before he wanders away. The rats and the rich were all long gone By life boat or jumping overboard But the cost of listening to one final song Is one that he could still afford. He stood... Sign in to see full entry.

Just A Book

Never merely a book: Say instead a portal or a door Into another land, another skin, Where things are that never were, Say a grapple or a hook That drags me back inside for more Adventures in lands I've never been Where life is as I would prefer. Say a world, a life, not just a book For here is... Sign in to see full entry.

Shy Boy

Fumble tongued and word shy, Not sure how to start Or even if he should try To say what's in his heart.

Bird Song

Merry mouthed warblers composed in the bushes, The crescendos of their song rose over the alarm To dance through his final dreams As he slowly opened his ears. The tempo of their serenade lures, but never pushes, Tempting him to consciousness with happiness and charm Tickling him until it seems... Sign in to see full entry.
