I am tempted to answer
They are offering me a free dwelling
Without having to conquer

Beautiful is the 'thank you'
Wrapped with gratitude,
Offered to peace prone people
Who offer what is real-themselves

No earthquake, no thunder, no volcanic eruption
Or even there was not any of other natural calamities,
A sudden loud sound broke out all through the bush
With whizzing, shuddering, cracking, tearing, echoing,

Chinedu Dike
The Peace Warrior Of Mzansi, among heroes - a colossus!

Unruffled he declares before High Justice:

My heart exploded like a thousand thunders

To your warm womb

If you had the choice of two women to wed,

POEM OF THE DAY
Having Crossed The River
Having crossed the river,
where will you go, O friend?

There's no road to tread,
No traveler ahead,
Neither a beginning, nor an end.

There's no water, no boat, no boatman, no cord;
No earth is there, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford.

You have forgotten the Self within,
Your search in the void will be in vain;
In a moment the life will ebb
And in this body you won't remain.

Be ever conscious of this, O friend,
You've to immerse within your Self;
Kabir says, salvation you won't then need,
For what you are, you would be indeed.

POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
Your Sparkling Beauty
Your Sparkling Beauty
Your sweet eyes shower love from eyes to eyes
Your beauty shimmers in your passionate passion
How can I resist the pleasure of your lovely cries
Let me appreciate your beautiful style and fashion
Your beauty reinvigorates my spirits to appreciate
You are like a full garden of fragrant sweet flowers
Let me assoiciate in love and let me but narrate
What a wonderful stem and a wha a beautiful bowers
Let me have a close look at your sweet shining figure

POEM OF THE DAY
Sonnet 14 - If Thou Must Love Me, Let It Be For Nought
XIV

If thou must love me, let it be for nought
Except for love's sake only. Do not say
'I love her for her smile—her look—her way
Of speaking gently,—for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
A sense of pleasant ease on such a day'—
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or change for thee,—and love, so wrought,
May be unwrought so. Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry,—
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
But love me for love's sake, that evermore
Thou mayst love on, through love's eternity.
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
Midsummer, Tobago
Broad sun-stoned beaches.

White heat.
A green river.

A bridge,
scorched yellow palms

from the summer-sleeping house
drowsing through August.

POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
An Original
I may not be your first choice
As I answer with a truthful voice,
But, knowing me you will rejoice
Because I am a great choice.
I may not be rich and/ or taxable,
But, indeed I am very valuable.

I don't pretend to be someone that I am not
I don't pretend that I am someone you sought,
Knowing me you see what you got

POEM OF THE DAY
A Golden Day
I Found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.

A golden bird was singing
Its melody divine,
I found you and I loved you,
And all the world was mine.

I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May.
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
Little Purple Flower
I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

But, oh, what happened to my peers!
Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame


...
POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
Dead Man Walking
'Dead man walking! '
Announces the guard
As the condemned man
Is led to his execution
In the prison's gas chamber

In a week they'll be
Saying that about me. I'm
Scheduled to die for
A crime I did not do.

...
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Take time to love those, who are alive, Their love is there, to feel and see, For in the future, You may be shedding, many tears, Of memories for them, Like me' Tom Maxwell Copyright 5/3/2020
