chinese piano (a fragment)
by Jim Bellamy

Lawless Garden
by azzow2
Dancing daisy draped over dreadful deadly dandelions dwindling diligently with delight. Lavish lavender lazing lushly on long loach like lines. Posh pansies poised poignantly over a pagoda paint pinkish. Lilacs loudly lounging on lumpy loaf of lawless land. Raunchy roses wound round and round rusty rotundas reluctantly radically. Incognito irises inch independently indifferent to instant incineration. Many marigolds moods move motionless…

Trek of Tenderness
by azzow2
Purge the serge tip it until it tumbles up on over. Ponder the way far over yonder. Fold the fodder fumble you forks, till those tines chime with rhyme. Gather your thoughts grab the goose egg, capature that glance that puts you in a trance. Excute deliberateness, in your baseless excuses of momentary madness.   Gather all your heys of…

Slow and steady are you ready?
by azzow2
Six and ten slow and sleek around that bend. Seven and nine spill a tid bit of sugar through the funnel of hope and time. Visions of elephants all a white haunt you through the darkest nights. Tales of grim toss you into a fright. Whispering elms omens of tales yet of which have not been…

Our greatest weakness
by Chloe Delys Martin
Winds of time changing,Our priorities rearranging.The people so blindBut claim to have their own mind,We ruin this world with corruption and hate,Fewer aspire for the pearly gate. Winds of time changing,Our safe climate is fading.We ruin the air with poison and smokeYet we ignore those who mercilessly choke.We cause disasters for others far and wideBut when…

             We are gathered here together            In this fair place            Where the stars shine down on each of us            And the moonlight beams for Eternity.            On se trouve, chacun de nous,            Dans cet endroit charmant ou la chaleur des e’toilles            Touche tout-le-monde            Et clair-de-lune brilles, infiniment.            SO WE GET TOGETHER HANGIN-N-CHILLIN            IN THIS WICKED SPACE…

hearseward (after Dylan Thomas Altarwise by Owl-Light)
by Jim Bellamy
 iHearseward and after, in the naveward blaze,The Nineveh of fables flapped its drunken eye;Eden, wrapped in stammers, scored away its garden,And, from down the hills, the linnet swam the highFour ways of the mare, sat in its golden meadow,With the metronomes appealing and the clifftops bare,Flaring and rainy, where the appled widow,Who is the honey…

Appreciation amidst Irma
by Andreas Simic
Appreciation amidst Irma©After watching Irma terrorize Florida and the CaribbeanThis is what appreciation looks like I appreciate that: I have hydro with which to make my morning coffeeThat the roof is still on my homeThe car I drive is on four wheels and not on its side There is a place to jog this morning free of debrisThe…
