The low lands call
I am tempted to answer
They are offering me a free dwelling
Without having to conquer

yoonoos peerbocus
Beautiful is the 'thank you'
Wrapped with gratitude,
Offered to peace prone people
Who offer what is real-themselves
...
3.
Muzahidul Reza
Indoors by technology, outdoors by speedy transport
I travel the world
Today in Japan, tomorrow in Rome,
Next day by an ancient civilization or in Hawaii or Coast Ivory,

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

Unruffled he declares before High Justice:

Dr. Antony Theodore
If you die before me
I would jump down into your grave
and hug you so innocently
that angels will become jealous.
...
6.
Muzahidul Reza
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,

Ernestine Northover
Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.

Pounds of pain punctured my progress
Tons of trouble terminated my tranquility
Swarms of stress subtracted my substance
My heart exploded like a thousand thunders

Richard Lovelace
"Come, pretty birds, present your lays,
And learn to chaunt a goddess praise;

If you had the choice of two women to wed,
(Though of course the idea is quite absurd)
And the first from her heels to her dainty head
Was charming in every sense of the word:

A little while, a little while,
The weary task is put away,

Alike, while I have holiday.

Long ago the Gladiators,
When the call to combat came,
Marching past the massed spectators,
Hailed the Emp'ror with acclaim!

   Two thrown together
Who are not wont to wear
   Life's flushest feather -

POEM OF THE DAY
This Is Just To Say
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
I Am Offering This Poem
I am offering this poem to you,
since I have nothing else to give.
Keep it like a warm coat,
when winter comes to cover you,
or like a pair of thick socks
the cold cannot bite through,

I love you,

I have nothing else to give you,

2021,

My, my you have just descended,
It was quite a year last year,
The world heralded in the New decade with much expectation, celebration and amazement,
Perhaps casting their eye Into the new decade eager,
For Optimism,
Change,
Innovation,
Prosperity,

...

POEM OF THE DAY
A Moment Of Happiness
A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden's beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
45 Mercy Street
In my dream,
drilling into the marrow
of my entire bone,
my real dream,
I'm walking up and down Beacon Hill
searching for a street sign -
namely MERCY STREET.
Not there.

I try the Back Bay.

...
POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
What Would You Do?
What would you do if you knew that all the elements bring me to you?

I gaze at a flame, dancing across a burning log,
and watch it slowly disintegrate into sleepy embers as I think of you.

So, this is how it is.

I see you in the tangerine and golden hues escaping from the torrid wooden limbs,
and I feel you in the splintered dry birch prickling my skin.
I see you in the crimson ash,

...
QUOTE OF THE DAY
This world can paint you as the devil. Just don't let it be true.

POEM OF THE DAY
"It Might Have Been"
We will be what we could be. Do not say,
"It might have been, had not this, or that, or this."
No fate can keep us from the chosen way;
He only might who is.

We will do what we could do. Do not dream
Chance leaves a hero, all uncrowned to grieve.
I hold, all men are greatly what they seem;
He does, who could achieve.

We will climb where we could climb. Tell me not
Of adverse storms that kept thee from the height.
What eagle ever missed the peak he sought?
He always climbs who might.

I do not like the phrase "It might have been!"
It lacks force, and life's best truths perverts:
For I believe we have, and reach, and win,
Whatever our deserts.
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
I Am Very Bothered
I am very bothered when I think
of the bad things I have done in my life.
Not least that time in the chemistry lab
when I held a pair of scissors by the blades
and played the handles
in the naked lilac flame of the Bunsen burner;
then called your name, and handed them over.

O the unrivalled stench of branded skin
as you slipped your thumb and middle finger in,

...
POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
I Am Busy Creating Moments. and That Settles
Few times
More moments
what life will have for me.

I don't know.
I am too busy going living.
...
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Love is given first, not reward later
