      Well, the'Max' poem is gone. Is that PH or the author?It's a shame there's such weak individuals out there with no sense of humor, and egos like stained glass. I liked that poem. It wasn't great, but ... more

    When you see your friends smile,
    Can you not help but smile along?
    And when they are feeling down,
    Can you not help but feel down too?
    For friendship is the common ground on which we gel,
    This we know only too well.

    Who writes the wackiest posts on the forum?Pranab or Sean North?Sean gets the nod for creativity, but Pranab, with his Beckettian ability to confound, should get his fair share of votes. Merry Christmas to both of them, and their clitoris'! !

    Quiet brilliant the codes to apply but so hazy, really undone to get its access.

    Into the Wild

    The sitting sun, wrestling
    with the clouds, and
    kindles the sky
    with pale reds; and snaps
    her glory, loitering in the wild.

    But i see winters in
    her smiles, often synced in tears.
    O, this world is like a belly
    of beast, spouting acid
    into love and peace.

    The time crept by
    slowly, still her innocence
    trances my dreams. And I
    can hear her whisperings endlessly
    walk on the barren moors.

    Today I read the poem Tree of Joyce Kilmer. Unfortunately I was not so much heard about this great poet who has gone for ever in world war in such an younger age of 31. His biography states. I found his poems so realistic and beautiful in all respects. A great poetic mind.

    do not be bound by anything. the secret to writing a good poem is that there is no secret

    Look upon this world
    With the eyes of a child
    And see everything as it was meant to be

    Halfway through the pane of glass,
    still making gaslight eyes at Maud
    a leer crawled across your face.
    William Butler Yeats looked like he
    was going to cream your skinny
    and you were glad Einstein was right
    about the Time-Space continuum
    because now you can bust a beer
    over Bill’s noggin. The pub became pell-mell,
    time slowing down like sap inside a frosty
    It was 1916 like it’s always been 1916
    with shattering glass twinkled against
    street lamps, Maude’s jacket slightly
    I guess most times you’ll land over there
    with the dandelions stuck in cracked
    sidewalks trying to tickle your bloody
