A Voice in the Light

A Voice in the Light Down the heavens, thru the clouds, across the winds that churn the night, the velvet darkness pins the sky with stars of a silvern light. At a gallop in the dark, the light rays come, first the fast then behind come the slow. They both reach the eyes at slight different times a...

Re: Smoke

Ton - It's strange the different smokes we go thru in life and how they stick to us even when you can no longer see them, I liked this one Ton. Namyh

...Go on Faith

…Go on Faith Scorched sand sizzled hot with a blister. Rising heat sucked the air out the day and the motionless sun like an unblinking eye poked bones and my brains in its way. I buckled to my knees from exhaustion then my face hit the sand full flat. Without water, each breath was a dry pain hurt...

Re: The Window Washer

Macavity - From the big city streets of my youth, I could look up the skyscrapers and see men on scaffolds washing windows in winter. From the sky, some may say the precipitation was 'sleet'. On my streets, it was always just 'freezing rain'. And very much like this poem, I guess it's all about the ...

The Window Washer

The Window Washer There was a secretary working on the 34th floor at her desk in a chair by the new boss’s door. She could work and polish nails with a snobbish delight, type a letter, take dictation in the absence of light, brew the coffee, answer phones, solve the problems that bind, dab on lipst...

6 Minute Football

6 Minute Football The night was a bucket of blackness splashed on a canvas of stars, homebound in my green Chevy pickup on a backroad emptied of cars. I could see my house light in the distance thru trees like a flickering flame. I gunned the engine, raced up the road for tonight’s great Football g...

If twice the base (9131 inches) of the Great Pyramid is divided by its height (5813 inches), you will get 3.14 or pi, the main component of a circle here used as a basis for constructing this 4 sided figure known as the Pyramid from which at ground level only ...

Macavity - I wanted the reader smack dab in the middle of a nightmare where the impact is greatest. If the sizzle sells the steak and the scare sells the story, then all the reader had to do was bring their own personal monster. What better audience could a poet want to enthrall enough to deliver th...

Bjondon - Perhaps in the final analysis, a poet should best express the way it's felt in the heart and thus written, especially when it has chalk and cheese in it that might give the taste of an individual flavor. Enjoyed. Namyh
