And now there’s been a power cut -
No ‘You Tube’ film, of course…

Cracked Film

If I cannot dream in any other hue,
Then stretched upon my eyes sticks a blue film,
Therefore my cornea cracks and shatters
Because irises trick both the fake and true.


Short Film poem by Duffy Laudick| Details |

Noir

My mind is a jumble
like an old black and white film
scratched and jumping around
with bad narration and too many shadows
and a scream for help in the distance
with a gun shot echo.


Short Film poem by Sheol Moribund| Details |

The Birds

My walls reveal my mind
How it thinks

Make me feel alive...

Heart of Paris

where art is in the spiritual thread 
so that every love to be eternal

Eternal blue

and soul for the soul 
and the spirit of the infinite

Short Film poem by David Byrne| Details |

PASTE

Sorrow numbs 
The mind like
Paste in cling film
Nothing can
Penetrate
You squeeze it
With your thumb
All over shapeless
Lump
I know how a heavy 
Heart feels _ no
Pep in the step
I can’t imagine you
Anymore ! 


Short Film poem by Sophie Leggett| Details |

Water

A chill runs through my spine
As the surface breaks
The world goes quiet
I am in a silent film
Watching the faces that appear above me
Watching the world go by
Until I run out of breath
I am safe here
    In the water


Short Film poem by Samuel Durant| Details |

the greatest story ever told

think of the major events of your life 
  
imagine them as if they were

coming soon to a K-Mart bargain bin 
  
near you

Bubble Bath

Soaked in a transparent skin
Float vaulted orbs of H2O
'till a tactile object like a pin
Burst these film lined embryo
But, Oh! What fun 
Kids have at play
In a bathtub full of bubbles
Washing built up dirt away
As well as daily troubles

Short Film poem by Gert W. Knop| Details |

Night

Night, 
appearing with frosty silence
becomes engulfed
in the valley of dreams,
soundless,
images,
a continuous film
of whirling silence,
mixed
with past and future.
The  night 
has its own tunes
of hidden and restless 
desires.


Short Film poem by Robert Pettit| Details |

Four Jacks

That was something unexplained that I saw: Paul Newman was playing poker against Robert Shaw. Robert Shaw had four nines, and was happy to stand. How did Paul Newman get four jacks in his hand? From the 1973 film “The Sting”


Short Film poem by Jack Jordan| Details |

Come to Me Dusk

Come to me dusk, come shy, 
change to the silent night of 
almost light of a waning moon 
sifted through scudding dragon clouds 
soft as your body, 
the blue film of hush,
perfume’s whispered blush, 
shadow damp kisses and 
blessed sweet darkness.


Short Film poem by Nichole Vickrey| Details |

memory on a couch.

some one told me this piece of him:
that his mind fills every day with
images of his body,
ripped and destroyed,
on freeways,
in fires-
without emotion or reverie.
flying off cliffs
with no head and
bleeding genitals-
a daily silent film.


Short Film poem by Constantinos Grigoriadis| Details |

As at the cinema

The life made a film just for me 
was my producer. 
I was the actor and the creator. 
I created every day as my last one. 
The end of the film was unknown...
Precisely as at the cinema

Short Film poem by Dan Keir| Details |

Picture Perfect

Take a picture. 
Halfway between, two extremes, film exposed to light; 
Corrupt or cleansed, shaking hands, or about to fight. 

Make a picture. 
Roll film right back, start again, I am what you see.
More film to load, left alone, so many stills to be. 


Short Film poem by mike dailey| Details |

Love Note to Mona L

Oh how your smile got to me
Mona, it just has to be
As I painted your face
My heart skipped in place
“Be mine” signed “Yours, Leonard D.

Short Film poem by Leonard Taormina| Details |

Moon Tides

 
Undertows sweeping;
Currents pulling;
Pictures flash by;
Like silent film on fast forward.
Knowing not else;
I struggle to endure but;
What- nay, why;
Weeping eyes.
Warriors don’t cry;
rebellion to tyranny
obedience to God
Help me understand


Short Film poem by Greg Easley| Details |

San Roman

sad girl,
sad love;
same old
unkempt 
memories
of hers. 

her eyes
her hair;
both shine,
flat black
exactly
like film.

in this,
in that;
no more-
nor less
forgotten
is she.

stillbirth,
stilllife;
today
the real
tragedy
begins.


Short Film poem by Brian Strand| Details |

vignette- AN ACTORS' ACTOR

His name does noy ring a bell
But,good acting helped his film's sell-
Good looks were never his..
Though always worth his hire,
Winning an oscar,with Streetcar named Desire

Tribute To Karl Malden (1912-2009) One of the best  of Hollywood's supporting actors


Short Film poem by jide badmus| Details |

light a candle

light a candle. 
let it glow with hope. 
let its thin film of smoke 
disperse the dark clouds. 
let it drizzle and frizzle out your stress, 
let it wash off the stench of sweat. 
let your pregnant hope 
deliver twins and triplets; 
multiple tales of success.   


Short Film poem by Glenn McCrary| Details |

Elohim

Waterfalls precipitate upon cinnamon film

Meshing with legions of tales

Forth sways a vibe only I can feel

Waterfalls precipitate upon cinnamon film

As to the mountains I flee to heal

A sign I was unwell

Waterfalls precipitate upon cinnamon film

Meshing with legions of tales


Short Film poem by Amanda Sullivan| Details |

Oil pastels

Greasy film,
touch like silk,
glides across my sketch pad,
before it's time to have a nap,
bright, bright pastels,
etched across my nostrils,
in such fluorescent colours,
I can do no other,
oil pastels,
comes perfectly natural,
to someones naked eye,
it's time to sketch and say goodbye.


Short Film poem by Frances King| Details |

Watching George Clooney


Three people on the sofa, 
Watching a film.

Daughter (28)
“I don’t go much for him myself …”

Mum (59)
“You don’t??
What’s up with you???”

Daughter’s partner (40)
“hngh, hngh, hngh!”



15 seconds, plus typing … 
Not a serious contender, just a bit of light relief!
