Kudzai Mahwite… Calamity Do Fly Away


Calamity Do Fly Away

All do lament with backs bent,
Some justify as fate sent,
All do dissipate as had been rent,

Like true gormandize in lent.

All are complacent in Genesis,
Feign to truly envisage the nemesis,
Wit be fled from true analysis,

Trouble hath entered their premises.

Later full-blown fever does afflict,
Strange now why not predict,v

Soul and body left derelict,

Trouble hath entered their premises.

Come forth Angel with good tidings,
Real relief come to break all their bindings,
With aid comes capital for future prospects,
Trouble hath gone and come profits.

Pijush Kanti Deb… Bearing A Grudge


Bearing A Grudge

Bearing a grudge-
a poor intention of a heart,
maybe, rich in good wishes
but ought not to be run down,
in putting two and two together
one can see eye to eye
with the mortals and the immortals,
“Bearing a grudge is sin-less.”
The morning –air-
free of dust and dirt
but not of grudges.
Temple, church and mosque-
the devotional catapults,
start throwing grudges
of all professionals and their counterparts,
wrapped with contradictory prayers,
filling the air and the sky with
the sound of the silent grudges,
“More please—No more please.”
Ought not to be surprised at all,
even the prayer-loving God
forgets to make a figure
and stands in the crowd for a prayer-
full of grudges expressing His longings,
“More sorrows— More prayers.”

Bozena Helena Mazur-Nowak… Sunrise at the Seaside


Sunrise at the Seaside

wrapped by the night
swathed in a shawl of memories
filled with love
I froze on an empty beach

with feet mired in the soft sand

staring into the abyss of the sea I can see how
a soft golden-orange sphere
emerges slowly, and majestically rises
spreads its arms above the horizon

cold night slowly dissolved in deep blue depths

golden rays bring warmth and hope
surfing on the backs of the waves
tenderly stroking the coastal rocks
tearing through pine branches
pouring on the dunes
tickling crumbs of amber and shells

scattering on the beach

enriched by the another dawn
ready for sparring with a new day
I prepare my heart for another lonely night

Louis Marvin… On A Quiet Sunday Morning


On A Quiet Sunday Morning

Oh slight wind blow

good morning birds-sing song of life

The organ and the choral groups
fly from the speaker
on the public radio

church music show

I heard the morning sounds of the military chapel
piano player practicing
the chaplain and I

making twin urine streams in the head

There is a tock, tock tennis ball sound
at a Pearl Harbor tennis event
for kids


Louis Marvin-tour guide-poet-gigolo born Burbank, raised hell phoenix, lives/loves the Chinese girls in the pacific island read a poem where the Gin Blossoms played in Tempe, AZ (no one threw a bottle or up)
