Planted: Real Poetry To Live By
I play with shadows
under guise of light and dark
ripened under a half-met sun
ripp'd where tainted thoughts dare run

looking down,
afleet
barren to thrust
flowers slain and seeds lay rough
all the while
the weeds won't grow


til

her toil
unearthed
in muddy soil
patted pasties put, dripp'd in soot
dirtied mouths...Read More

A GLIMPSE OF HERITAGE

To Visit the past, is to understand your future.

The storm was moving away, the noise no longer pounding,
Sky turned blue from dark, thunder abating, hail disappearing,
I took refuge under a bridge during this fierce storm’s ranting,

Stars Are Out Tonight
Stars are out tonight--
more accurately
I am out tonight
to greet them, the
cozier side of me,
my evening thoughts
far more at ease
in dimmer light--

the pavement of my
steps less rowdy

for the clutter abating

with heels of high
and soles of tap
relaxing to slippers;

abating hope
diminishing 
like warmth
of this sun
hidden 
in the somberness
of december skies
and downcast eyes

i watch this snow
descending around me
flakes falling like lives
one after another

the chill of wind
wrapping me
in the same 
frigid grasp
as death

i feel 
as lost
as footsteps
fading
in the depths
of white
sweeping
across the...Read More

Premium Member A CHRISTMAS AWAKENING
A CHRISTMAS AWAKENING

Sudden storm brewing,
Santa’s cookies baking,
Family, presents wrapping,
Christmas evening,
Awaiting morn’s dawning!
Children gleaming
Christmas tree glistening,
But storm heightening!
Lightening frightening,
Boldly striking,
Terror tightening,
Thunder thundering,
Loudly reverberating
Drizzle starting,
Rain begins pouring,
Children begin crying!
Family praying,
Storm abating
Lights suddenly spiking
All around whitening,
Vision enlightening
Angel appearing,
Fear subsiding,
Storm brought awakening
Us reminding,
Of Christ’s...Read More

She is one of many, dear Eleanor secluded 
in her secular sepulcher,
One of the lonely plenty, a regular within the

Dreamed of rice, at her wedding 
with her sorrows spreading,
She paid the price, with tears...Read More

Premium Member Black Sheep Mentality
Miscalculations and moments of self-assertion
These mistakes, I wish I learned the first time
Abating in my conceit with obvious wounds to show
A battered and bitter human but less off a being
Inward and beyond, a lack of will rest in the void

The ants and the beetles were all celebrating
As I wed the spider that I had been dating
And soon sixteen legs would be consolidating
I could say eighteen but that’s exaggerating

But all of a sudden the ground was vibrating

BANG CRASH CRACKLES
Oh no, that time of year again
when I hear noises in my head
My owner tries to comfort me
snuggling, huddling, nurturing
but I just want the noise to stop
such loudness is so torturing
She plays her music loudly
hoping this will stop my trembling

Round 1 New York won

Round 1: New York won!
By Brett Somers
Written 10-13-2018

Like a ghost in the shadows
New York
People and places and vaporware faces
New York
Experience of magnitude
To have everything in the world
Yet what at all?
Transient position
Always moving 
New York
Cool spots, cool spaces
Beautiful faces 
New York
Astounding...Read More
