line against the wall
fat birds too wrung out to drive

a cold stone bears his name
grief pours onto his green plot
prostrated mom shouts "why?"

sun shines bleak, cold winds whip
death's sting floods her tender eyes
daddy is laid to rest

Pistorius charged                  
with committing murder…
no leg to stand on

United Nations Plaza

Temperature dip
urban leaves turned
Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market
in San Francisco today.

Buried Treasure

Castle in the sand

indicates the location

A buried treasure

where once we sat and sunbathed

Lost to a watery grave

your up high
in the sky
the clouds above
you are love
for you rose dust
you are one to trust
for you do we all
love you too

The Cloudiest Day

I didn't like losing you
And my tears cried the truth
With rain that came
On the cloudiest day
Like heaven was crying too

                   "Voluminous sweet
                            She bought me one and then leave
                                      On her grave I give".

You Love Me More Than You Love Yourself

Oh, my children; precious babes!
I've placed all your pictures on the shelf
And as I wander toward my grave
(I realize)
You love me more than you love yourself...

Short Grave poem by Andrew Crisci| Details | |


Life like Autumn's leaves
returns to Earth's coldest soil; 
Nature reawakens
each spring, but life never does:
Mankind's last hope lays in grave.

Short Grave poem by Katie Telling| Details | |

House Fire

Ashes drift
to the ground
like black snow,
and smoke curls
upward from
the rubble like
ghostly figures
emerging from the
A skeleton now looms
in the clearing,
surrounded by heaps
of its charred flesh.

Buried, not Cremated

Here lies the arsonist, Ash James -
Although, he would have chosen flames.

It amazed us, once, to see the grave of a notorious pyromaniac in a local grave 
yard - I know that she would have certainly preferred cremation!

Short Grave poem by Darren Dimabuyu| Details | |

Behoves The Dust

Upon the buried dust we wert,
Delving through the immutable land,
Of somber dirt.
Hereby I lodge,
Resentments hallowed beneath frailty,
As above and under,
Impetuous the world turns,
And back to the dust we return.

Short Grave poem by Dr. Upma A. Sharma| Details | |


                  Indomitable ,
            Intrusions into nature,

          Mushroom clouds high up!

Short Grave poem by Morgan Mise| Details | |


Near a silent riverbank
where lilies scent the air
under a blackened willow tree
sweet Josephine rests there
kept in eternal slumber
her rotting bones left bare
I'm left longing to hold her close
my heart in disrepair

Arzoo-oan ka madfan--Graveyard of Desires

Jeenay ko bhi dil nahi karta . 
marna bhi asaan nahi
Kehne ko hum zinda hain
 per jism me rooh o jaa'n nahi

Dafn karoo'n armaanoan ki
 in zinda laashoa'n ko mein kahaa'n
Hasrat kee maari rahoa'N mein
 Koi Qabr nahi Shamshaan nahi

Short Grave poem by RUDOLPH RINALDI| Details | |

the goldfish

the goldfish 
looks out 
at the distorted world 
through a glass bowl
and tries to male sense of it 

he watches the room about him 
and those that feed him
with self satisfaction  
unknowingly waiting for death
and a burial at sea

Short Grave poem by Laura Breidenthal| Details | |

Her Eyes

The ghostly eye returns
My stomach forevermore churns
I could feel its sick visions swelter the atmosphere
I could feel me giving into my fears
Feeling the shift slowly rise
Tonight was the night I would look into her eyes
To find only. . .tears
