POEM OF THE DAY
Take Away The Words Of The Devil
O God, take away the words of the devil
That mix with my prayer-
If not, then take my prayer as it is, devil and all.

POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
Neighbours
I am the type you are supposed to fear
Black and foreign
Big and dreadlocks
An uneducated grass eater.

I talk in tongues
I chant at night
I appear anywhere,
I sleep with lions
And when the moon gets me

POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
Express Ourselves As We Wish
Democracy is about freedom of speech
Anarchy is, without a doubt, the opposite
Of democracy, liberty and freedom to wish
To hope, to dream and to confront defeat.

Brothers, sisters, express ourselves as we wish
Never, never be afraid or fearless to tell the truth
If possible or reasonable, go on the summit of the roof
To tell it like it is, to exercise freedom of speech.

POEM OF THE DAY
Margaret Fuller
THOU, Sibyl rapt! whose sympathetic soul
Infused the myst’ries thy tongue failed to tell;
Though from thy lips the marvellous accents fell,
And weird wise meanings o’er the senses stole,
Through those rare cadences, with winsome spell;
Yet even in such refrainings of thy voice
There struggled up a wailing undertone,
That spoke thee victim of the Sisters’ choice,—
Charming all others, dwelling still alone.
They left thee thus disconsolate to roam,
And scorned thy dear, devoted life to spare.
Around the storm-tost vessel sinking there
The wild waves chant thy dirge and welcome home;
Survives alone thy sex’s valiant plea,
And the great heart that loved the brave and free.
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
Forest Of Europe
The last leaves fell like notes from a piano
and left their ovals echoing in the ear;
with gawky music stands, the winter forest
looks like an empty orchestra, its lines
ruled on these scattered manuscripts of snow.

The inlaid copper laurel of an oak
shines though the brown-bricked glass above your head
as bright as whisky, while the wintry breath
of lines from Mandelstam, which you recite,

The Lens Of Faith
turn on 'Protection against infection'

After the spies returned and
shared their bad report,
the Bible says
that Israel wept and wept. (Numbers 14: 1)

Clearly Israel was not practicing
'social distancing' from toxic and infectious information!

POEM OF THE DAY
I am a Bard...
I am a bard - I am a heaven bird,
I need no any richness of the world.

I love a flower and so charming lass
In aromatic springs that never pass.

I love a whisper, very gentle and long,
And, in full silence, a despondent song.
...
POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
Clarence
Clarence Lee from Tennessee
Loved the commercials he saw on TV.
He watched with wide believing eyes
And bought everything they advertised --
Cream to make his skin feel better
Spray to make his hair look wetter
Bleach to make his white things whiter
Stylish jeans that fit much tighter.
Toothpaste for his cavities,
Powder for his doggie's fleas,

...

Over The Rainbow
Some days I feel like a leprechaun at the end
On other days I feel like the one in search for the gold at the beginning.
Through restless nights and sleeping days.
Through cold lava and flaming snow.
Through the raining in droughts and clashes of waves in the sand.
Through the final exhale of the wind and to the beginning breath of fire
I realize.
I am the rainbow.
Still yet moving in a thousand shades of colors only the eye can see.
I am the one in search of gold hoping to crack a landline of treasure in hopes of comforting my love.

Or even there was not any of other natural calamities,

With whizzing, shuddering, cracking, tearing, echoing,

Was charming in every sense of the word:

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