Sea of Poppies

by meaghanmerrifield

poppies II

seductive syrupy sea

embraces heavily

crimson encircles the body slowly

how sweet

to dream

The Body

by fyarlgiles


onyx fingers curl

and stretch

through stone and steal

through blood and death

heaven glows in all of her

the sky below

the sea above

coming slowly

like the daylight

orange, red, and yellow flow

all is brilliant

like the morning

worn but strong in clouds of silk

“The Body” by Angie Hoover-Hillhouse

I do not smile nor do I smoke

Ink stained hands ruin well-manicured plans

Jealous Sea

by meaghanmerrifield


the sherbet sky burns over the bruised mountains below

while the jealous sea thrashes about frantically

with watchful swollen eyes

and tired blood that no longer has strength to flood

legs stand

flacid arms fall

faint memories of when we

we were once able

to embrace it all

“In England people actually try to be brilliant at breakfast.

That is so dreadful of them!

Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.” -Oscar Wilde
