La Odisea by Erika .
that the ship of dreams you sail on conquers the storms of the gods and the tempests of the sea: battle mighty Orion and reach the Northern Star; and all through the night I shall witness the golden victories you leave in your wake.
I’ve heard of dark legends coating the deepest of seas and myths of winged lions guarding perils of every kind. Blood-thirsty fiends and goddesses shall coat our eyes in magic spells and stand in between our destinies, but all in vain, for we know our heart’s truth is embedded into one another.
The wars and lands we’ll cross shall be many and great, and I will record my days and weave in my sadness into the loom of poetry. We’ll worship the lands of the moon and the glow of the midnight stars before they can grant us our prayers…but meanwhile, tears stain a violet hue upon my cheeks for all the love-moments stolen by Time.
And across the roaming earth, galleons of clouds swallow the dark vault of night at the summon of the goddess of dreams, and once more our souls traverse reality to ascend the lofty heights of the heavens: for it is here, our lover’s tryst, in these dreams tucked under our starlit wings where our god-cursed journey ends and our time begins despite the miles of storms in between –
we are invincible to the wrath of the gods, my Odysseus
for we know our love stands stronger than the mightiest world.
Mind your self by dab –
On the difference between
Soldier and Warrior
Both in battle, full of ardor
One’s thinking for himself
Other’s following orders
A human being
Shirking his own Mind
Will wilt and decay
As a tree, or algae
Shirking their ability
To transform light
Lemming by lovelyrita
I am not the moon
to her planet
or the tattoo on her arm
but you squeezed me through the needlepoint,
where I became a design of orbit
she fashioned with her time (and mine)
circling her arm,
her right hand man,
waiting to be told
when and where and
what to spin.
Royal Wedding Haiku 2: The Future Queen and I by Tuliptree
I have more freedom
than the most envied woman
in the UK does.
E Man Tribute (pt. 1) by wordthrift
here in Angeles
I’m just the same,
a needle in the hay
lost to miss misery
with no name.
My speed trial
in search of Amity, Amity, Amity, Amity, Amity,
she was someone I used to know,
dancing a number 2 waltz.
She would not say yes,
life lived between the bars
is not happiness.
Forgiveness by MaryMac
This short is a memory with my two brothers and me. My mom is driving and our heads are bopping. This is dedicated to my momma.
Someone wrote cruel words about her and my entire family last night. Someone who doesn’t know her, me, or my family. He also wrote cruel words about my BEST friend.
This short is to wash that away.
The person who wrote those words. I love you, I do.
I don’t know you but I can’t help my spirit is drawn to you.
Peace and happiness I’ve always tried to convey.
I see the good in you…not the hate.
Peace, love, and happiness to ALL in the World.
The radio blares, “…joy to the fishes and the deep blue sea joy to youandme.”
Lakehurst Mall…Three Wimpey Hamburger joints
Escalator take you atop…view open space, two cars one truck.
Biggest pair of Levi-Stratus Blue Jeans I ever did see
Blue Smiley face with stick-body charm… adhered to a chain around my neck
Pistachio ice-cream in a bowl please, with two maraschino cherries ontop.
The radio blares, “…ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship, be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip…”
