The Little Things [a poem]

By Leon Stevens | Featured Contributor


Stop. Feel that? 
The warmth of the sun 
The breeze on your face 
Rain. It has its own unique smell 
Feels like tiny punches when it lands 
Wherever you are 
There is beauty and wonder about 
Even if seemingly insignificant 
A smell, a color, a sight, a feel 
There is always something to appreciate 
Like cool grass under bare feet

Poetic Odyssey by robert rittel

Poetic Odyssey [a poem]

By Robert Rittel | Featured Contributor


The spiritual quest to explore,
the theory of mind and its score.
Parallels of circumstance,
testing the intellect to advance.
Narratives on individual psychology,
complexity of thought throughout history.
Considerations beyond the bound of tale,
the struggle to survive as soul cannot fail.
Emotional depth of sea that inspire,
trusting matters of the experiences dire.
Epic psychology and its dilemma,
Cyclopes and Hydras forever.
The story of love that waits,
mutual recognition and opening,
the golden gates.

Directed, strengthened, creations sure dye,
reaching and spreading to mature in the sky.

Like thoughtful mankind, you search for pure light,
bound to the earth, your leaves take to flight.
Majestic, serene… though ever unseeing,
over all man and beast, yet having no being.

Are You Taking the Road Less Traveled?

By Markie Doczi | Featured Contributor


The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost has always resonated with me. As a writer, I can appreciate a good simile, and I always want to live my life like he describes in this poem. I think this logic applies to daily life, both the big and the little things. For example, I have always believed in daring to be different, and I take it as a compliment when people call me weird. The only time I go with the flow is when I’m floating down a lazy river!

This is not to say that I live some eccentric lifestyle: I’m married, we have a mortgage, and I’m scratching my head about how to keep the critters out of my garden. And as much as I would love to travel overseas one day, you don’t have to backpack across Europe to take the road less traveled!
