It's a poetry jam.

Let the words flow
like water

let the words flow
like rain

let the words flow
ever downward

eclipsing all pain.

[yikes, this is a rough start]

but it's a start!

and hey, for those who like flow

words pour from the heart.

How does this work, Sierra? Do writers start a new thread for each contribution
Please forgive my ignorance.

06-03-2005, 01:43 PM
carnivorous tongues
lapping up the flow
the juice
the blood of thought and sigh

between the world and my mind
lies truth


06-03-2005, 02:07 PM
Staccato raindrops form
streaming thoughts
coursing towards inception;
seeking its own level
of awareness.

06-03-2005, 02:11 PM
oh hey everyone,
we have started in fun!
[forgive my long break
food I had to take]


06-03-2005, 02:14 PM
raindrops form the seeds
of words flowing from the poet's hand.
nannabug, you've got the right rhythm,
piph-friend, your words speak of heaven.
hey judih! is it night time where you are?
about 7:12 pm here, and out peek the stars.

[somewhere there is a hallmark card waiting for my verse]

06-03-2005, 02:22 PM
words can rat-a-tat like the metal tipped stud
on a flamenco dancer's shoe.

06-03-2005, 02:23 PM
hot nights recovering from warm daze.
i drizzle words like syrup over an arcanum pancake.

06-03-2005, 02:24 PM
fear factor grinds away in the back ground
as the kids gobble chinese

i shulda bin in siam

On a quiet morning
Somewhere in time
Lie two friends
With a passion for glory.

What words ignite
Worlds between them
Defying principles
Denying time.

A moment reflects
The gnawing ache
For communion
Within themselves.

06-03-2005, 02:29 PM
Lovely, atomicangel.

words float across cyberspace
creating a place for two friends
to dine together.


06-03-2005, 02:29 PM
a common circumplete circle
holds reflections glaze
finger stokes strokes
scatterlings of minds
drip scales
fished in hook eyes

06-03-2005, 02:31 PM
meating minds raw
sandpaper boats
scraped conscious

06-03-2005, 02:34 PM
fortune cookie crumbles open
to reveal a new fortune
'you'll learn the beauty of love'.

hottentot numbers to play the lotto
and then i'll think-grow into
some kind of bait, but wait.
there's more . . .

06-03-2005, 02:35 PM
copper claws crab
forward deflected
like ricocheted

06-03-2005, 02:36 PM
on a round white plate, i place some sweet n sour
next to a prawn empanada.

06-03-2005, 02:37 PM
hot sees
life rafts
buoys surf sublime

06-03-2005, 02:37 PM
sea speaks to moon
tides are the croon.

[yep, definitely am in Hallmark mode]

somebody break out some beat poetry.

06-03-2005, 02:43 PM
On the shore of a foreign sea
my love did speak to me.
he sang the song of a sangoma
[spiritual healer]
beating a drum
in rhythm with my heart.


06-03-2005, 02:44 PM
blast the beat
range of dissonant joy
the room floats together
in radiant now


06-03-2005, 02:45 PM
waves waft whistles
lipped on trombone marrow
my mouth organ

06-03-2005, 02:46 PM
eyes lashed
main sail

06-03-2005, 02:47 PM
paint a rainbow of words
after the rain, let the sun glow
on an arcanum heaven.

06-03-2005, 02:49 PM
a low swell of sound and out peals
the outpourings, a flood of thoughts
and words, rhythms and hymns.
[or am i just repeating myself?]

06-03-2005, 02:55 PM
@ echo beach treading waters razor time
heaven cut into the earth
and the sky bled
horizons steely

06-03-2005, 02:55 PM

06-03-2005, 02:57 PM
3 x 7:55 israel time
3 times
words overlap

06-03-2005, 02:57 PM
laughing out of my chair
there is so much here
[or do i mean there?]

the words not only flow
they explode.


06-03-2005, 02:58 PM
bubble & squeak babbles
spilling spindled smiles symbols

now come gently
going with a whisper of whisked wind
trailing over avenues shelled
anklets and husked sheaths
to inserted moments

spat from seven elevens
snake thighs

06-03-2005, 02:59 PM
2265 or is the real answer 42?

I have dos'd and can repeat

06-03-2005, 03:01 PM

the moon, the stars, the tide of oceans.
morning there, night here. judih, desert
lady, sizing up the thrice. wylde one,
holding the sun in a sizzling palm.

I salute you.

sticky trigger fingers plough
an earth wombed in bones
necklaced like a shoulder
eared in smoulder

06-03-2005, 03:08 PM
energized by idiots
winds of blabber
do i sneak beneath my pages
(or) do i boldly expand over methusaleh miles

so much DNA
so little time

06-03-2005, 03:08 PM
time's mirror
a fading petal
or a lost shoe
a young face
on an old body.
or maybe it is just
that someone forgot
to feed the cat

06-03-2005, 03:09 PM
a weasel discovers his cage
a mink requires a manicure
the human slave does all

idiotic energy is the best kind!
if we could bottle it, we'd give all the politicians a real job to do!
plus cut down on the noise pollution of all those speeches.

06-03-2005, 03:10 PM
genome strands thistle pricked
in oozing woo
of fonts slipped shiverless
in shunt hunts impaled
by blunts

travelling overland by bus
backpacking underworlds by the scent of zorba
a small mind in an endless narrative

jam makes sweetest steps

a greek holiday?

isles of capris? (oops, no that's italy).

we have some birthdays today
lovely rougestrega and beateous renee.

[i knew there was a reason for this hallmark stuff].

dna holds the secrets of the universe
in a tiny coiled strand, finally unwinding
to reveal all that might be revealed [read poetic license].

where will all the missing molecules go
when their structures are predetermined?

i dunno, but i guess i'd better feed the cat
before she miaows.

She can’t even whisper anymore, her throat
has gone so dry. The only noise she makes
sounds like the rattle of old paper left on a dusty shelf
which holds a piece of abandoned bric a brac
not pretty enough to sell at a jumble sale.

She likes to draw pretty letters and fleur de lis,
with heavy punctuation, anything to try to hide
the lack of words, of verbiage, of becoming.

She stopped becoming a long time ago— it
just took a while for the tape to rewind,
long enough for her to forget she had. Stopped
like an old fashioned wristwatch someone forgot to wind.

Sunset aligns itself with suspense
the anticipation of a new party, a fresh start.
The moon shines down highlighting the
crystalline depths of a tall martini, chilled frost
around the rim, the dark centre of an olive
peeking through the twist of a lemon rind.

06-03-2005, 03:29 PM
take a deep breath
this is the time, the moment
the space between sound
inject fire and ice
the rim shot
is the clink of success

a willya, wontcha schizo chick
hovers over both shoulders
divisive siamese twins
decisively she operates
straight up
no down
between the 3rd eye and the 18th hole
the rolling thunder
smacks a sound of satisfaction

06-03-2005, 03:30 PM
ladder rungs spangle

clipped in chipped trips traipsing spins

a heart holded grind of groins
spun splintering folded to flooded hammers
nailed in grooves rutted in guts
gummed mouthless lipless tongueless

sacrifices sufficed orifices oracled

on tricycle fish

pedal meatwheels spoked

unspeaking speachless

on speak hazy hazes eases

greased in grimless guamless grrips ripped
rashered risks
flaunted by undaunted spoor
freshend over

under groped sheetles mazes
entwined in wingless

flight plunged by amazing

06-03-2005, 03:32 PM
those are clouds of clarity
dangerously close
holding my breath
i've had one too many
