“Mirrors” by Vicky Hamilton

Vicky Hamilton

Beauty begets beauty,
Lies creates lies,
Fear breeds fear,
Faith elevates faith,
Passion initiates passion,
Pure thoughts receive pure thoughts,
Intimacy embraces Intimacy,
Hate makes hate,
Trust equals trust,
Magic evolves magic,
Music repeats music,
Love builds love,
Truth mirrors truth.

When you pick up your mirror,
To take a look,
What reflection of me,
Is looking back at you?

“Edge Of The World” by Jaymie Thorne


sitting on the edge of the world
watching winds capture curtain
i began trying clouds on for size
blowing by as borrowed distress
some looking as wild horses alit
dragging me with the stampede
to high clouds of icy desperation

on clear days forever bloomed
with hope of eternal existence
encircled by a nimbus of faith
cradled in arms of belief until
again a mustang would charge
leaving me to teeter and sway

i no longer pilfer heaven’s robe
gales blast then blow across me
no struggle has been harnessed
with repeating choice to remain
sitting on the edge of the world

“Flow In Progress” by Bliss

Meet ‘flow in progress’.

She isn’t finished but has absolutely refused to speak to me in the weeks that have passed since she first birthed herself to me. I return. I ask. She stands proudly and calmly collected in the nudity of her incompleteness. Today it was her turn for display and I started to pass her by out of some sort of embarrassment I cannot name. She winked. She laughed lovingly at me, and continued her perfect smokey percolation. I heard her. Lesson learned.
