The Daily Dose #109

The best verse and prose poetry submitted to our public
and subscribers’ promo channels from

This dose is the result of the combined efforts of three curators for poetsunited who read the poems and made their selections independently, after which they came to their final choices by consensus.

 

Now, enjoy these beautiful verses, then take a step by showing your appreciation with a comment below and on the writers’ blog post. I guarantee you will make a friend whenever you reach out in that way.

The A-B-C of Life by @oculussensori

3rd Spot

 

This poem expresses the nature of the heart and mind, integrity and forgiveness. A beautiful poem about learning to appreciate the wisdom that comes from experiences, to help build but not let ourselves become stepping stones and most importantly, to remember to live!!

And live your day, as if the last one would be,
And love so much, that you feel you would fly..

Karel Loves by @seifiro

2nd Spot

 

 

An homage to a beautiful girl once met, a girl who’s gaze leaves one starstruck and who’s path meets no defiance. So much so that nature itself, always ensures her gracious steps

The world breaks
in a little tear of yours
in the serene repose of the cold.

Dreamy Night by @vegaron

1st Spot

 

Dreamy Night conveys a tension against the injunction to conform. It is a tale of a tortured soul, who’s reality is as much a nightmare as his dreams are.

Somehow he is breathing really tight
He cannot shake the feeling that they
Are pulling him inside a world of black and white
