by Bo Lanier, Feb 12, 2016

Every night by candlelight I go to you on the wings of / a Firebird and you are there waiting for me in your / red cape where fire burns outside the snow... / you reach out for me without saying a word, I reach out / to touch your face and I whisper in your ear, "I love / you more than life it's self…  sign in to read more »

»Yes ... Just like that«

by Edward Iacona, Jun 18, 2012

One can love you with the intensity of / The BIG BANG when it ignited. / One can love you until our Sun fades / And our planet Earth is blighted. / One can love you with the simple joys / That can make a child delighted. / One can love you and defend you / And offer comfort when you're slighted. / One can…  sign in to read more »

»Park Place Monopoly«

by Edward Iacona, May 16, 2012

When the weather is pleasant / To escape things that's vitriolic. / My dog and I will go to the park / And bask in a place that's more bucolic. / / Jack is the name of my dog / A concept that would find him "fumin'" / As I am convinced that he truly / Believes I really am his human. / / He must be kept on…  sign in to read more »

»Afridi Is king«

by Rabi Ul Islam, Mar 8, 2012

He holds his bat with all his might, / The bowlers bowl with full of fright. / He is the man, he is the king, / He smashes every ball out of the ring. / / Once he entered the pitch by chance, / And changed the game in a single glance. / He is the man depended on hard times, / For he is the king of all the…  sign in to read more »

by Edward Iacona, Oct 28, 2011

"I just love coming home to my Phil," / She said, "He waits for me at the door / "He wraps his arms around my neck / How could I ever be loved more?" / / "He nuzzles me all over my face / He kisses and then nibbles my chin. / His affection will lift my spirit / No matter the poor mood I'm in." / / Is this…  sign in to read more »


by Andrew Totten, Aug 17, 2011

I wish that I had realized the day that I got bitten / that from then on my life would be condemned / I know now that my future as the beast is truly written / and will be all I know until the end / / The hunger that I feel inside now starts at gibbous moon / and keeps me hunting for the next three days…  sign in to read more »

»The Singing Beetle«

by Paul Gerard Day, Jul 18, 2011

Once upon a window sill / A little beetle lands / So soft and sweet and soothing / His little song he sang / / Each night at sunset we gathered / To hear his happy tune / Which was the very loudest / Upon each bright full Moon / / Such a plain and ugly little bug / With its black and shiny skin / So clumsy…  sign in to read more »

»I like cats«

by Bruce Gorton, Jun 15, 2011

It creeps through the mud / Low slinking stalking beast / Coiling hind legs power flood / With teeth it claims life leased / / The green eyed predator / Silky moves like its fur / The garden's terror / Sleeps with a purr / / Claws dig in skin as it dreams / Of its day of quiet hunting / A mouse chittering…  sign in to read more »


by Vladimir Nicolas, May 31, 2011

The most mysterious animal, this is the cat. / From human hands, the cat likes lots of caress, / But like humans, the cats have their personalities. / / Some cats enjoy loneliness, hunting and sleeping outside, / But they never forget their master and the way to back home. / / Then, other cats take…  sign in to read more »


by Shuaib Yunus Soni, Dec 4, 2010

The cutest baby you've ever seen, / Her hazel-brown eyes stand out, / Her enthusiastic smile so heavenly touched, / Such friendliness and warmth throughout. / / Always alive, always spunky, / Never down or pale, / Every day to the next, she's still the same, / Oscillating her well-trained tail. / / Not the…  sign in to read more »

Hissing peacefully, / Urging yourself on, / Slithering, curling and uncurling, / As your solitary journey continues, / Neither evil nor harm intended. / / Armed and lethal, / Your jerky tongue jutting, / Scorched underbelly, / Cold-blooded, / Your journey you pursue. / / Scaled and dappled, / Contracting and…  sign in to read more »


by Esther Odendaal, Sep 22, 2009

Beginning as a worm / We creep and crawl around / Fighting for our food / And to the ground we're bound / We find our favourite plant / And cling on for dear life / Munching as we go / Our teeth cut as a knife. / We all look much the same / We like to blend right in / All we do is eat / Be faithful to our kin…  sign in to read more »

by Raine Lariza, Mar 21, 2009

Earth is my greatest home / Where every living thing roams / Land that is full of colorful things / That the mankind must unite in nature preserving / / Water for rivers, seas, lakes and oceans / A symbol of life that should not be ignore even for once / It's for everyone's duty and call / Because the…  sign in to read more »

»Lion Roars Again«

by Jayram Daya, Mar 4, 2009

The lion never roars without a cause / Dawn breaks with the pride on the paws / In the wild go the hungry jaws / Courage and speed leaves no flaws / Stalk and ambush prey like great outlaws / / With the lions roar my guts goes sore / From a snore a sound not to ignore / Power self possessed silence cries…  sign in to read more »

»The Red Queen«

by Susan Cooper, Jan 1, 1970

She stands in the sun / Copper coat gleaming. / Suddenly, / Tail up and running to put her racing ancestor to shame / She teases and bullies her herd mates because she is / The Queen and it is her right. / She / Stops hard / Tosses her head up high / Ears forward / And / Snorts loud enough to wake dragons…  sign in to read more »
