Reflections by an old man help him to move from loneliness and regret, to acceptance and closure. A fellow member of our community, @ange.nkuru commented “This is a very beautiful and melancholic piece. And the flow is so soothing.”

 

If you read this letter some day,
written with a lot of love and affection
try to remember, Your beautiful years of children.

2nd Spot Memoirs of a Tree by @breezin

These beautifully composed stanzas present in memorable fashion, the tree as a metaphor for intergenerational experiences.

His abacus; the stars above
By which he counts the ways
That the lock and key held to his heart
Remains nestled in his days.

1st Spot Love and War  by @blockurator

Can one assume that we all ascribe the same meaning to love, war, peace, and betrayal? This poem successfully weaves these concepts into an emotionally evocative piece of poetry that is also thought-provoking.

 

 

 

The greatest battlefield is the human heart, Moist and fallow and dry
Depending on the season.

 

And now, here are more poems written by our community supporters and promoted in our discord promotion channel ….
