»A must... but without you, Is just dust.«

by Mphela Audrey, Apr 28, 2021

As soon as everything was approved / We packed our things and moved / We have not gone far / This note is to let you know where we are / We would be honored to have the pleasure / Of your company at our new treasure / / This treasure gets suddenly cold without a warning / Is that not a call for a…  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 »

»Merry Questmas«

by Edward Iacona, Jan 3, 2011

Once upon a Christmas time / That was now many years ago / I was thinking about my Christmases past / With a warm and nostalgic glow. / / I wanted to share my childhood / And all the things I did. / It would give some depth to stories / That start, "Well, when I was a kid..." / / A vivid memory of my youth…  sign in to read more »

by Maureen Direro, Jul 29, 2010

I am used to the Joburg sun / That would have a taste of too many gases and fumes / I would wake up before it would rise up / It showed my most strong elements it had ubuntu / And when I had shifted from Joburg, and went to Mafikeng / It was like taking a step to freshness and stress-free, clean air / It'…  sign in to read more »

»The Cottage«

by Andrew Eaton, Mar 4, 2010

Home away froma household / Escape to, is leaving everything behind / Weekends offer serenity from it all / Freshness prevails over surroundings polluted / An urgency replaced with calm / Dullness fills a world of chaos / Minimal upkeep gives reason to visit / Rustic preferred than perfection / A place of…  sign in to read more »

I see the shining castles. / I see the beautiful ocean. / I see the beautiful crystal waterfalls. / I feel a nice breeze. / I hear the splashing water. / I hear singing birds. / I hear laughing kids. / I feel amazed. / I smell beautiful flowers. / I smell fresh bread from a bakery. / I smell delicious food.…  sign in to read more »

»Emerald Isle«

by Shirley Joan Von Weichardt, Apr 16, 2009

I'll never forget the bluebells / and shamrocks of dear Killarney, / The Ring of Kerry, or the drive / to the old castle of Blarney. / All my life, my one wish and dream / …  sign in to read more »
