Alliterating Twisters

by Aditi Vishwanath

The lovely little lily has less lethargy, feels less lonely and, is filled with loads and loads of laughter.

Also, the nervous new Nick is neither nerd nor normal,
instead is a nonchalant nuisance.

On the other hand, the gang of genius girls is grinning with a giggle on their grumpy, girly faces.

But, the astounding aquarium accelerates the amplifying aspiration of an anguished yet active anonymous.

Floral Carpet

by Aditi Vishwanath

A small bud,
growing from a plant in mud
blooms into a pretty flower
by the water’s shower.

With colourful petals
a green sepal
and a happy face,
full of peace.

Butterflies fly and swing happily by
and sing merrily,
seeing the flowers blooming cheerfully,
gracefully and prettily.

Colourful flowers blooming everywhere,
the people who hate them are very rare,
but when floral carpets bloom,
everyone’s cheerful. Gone is the gloom.

The Great Flood II

by Pragun Pudukoli

The dams were filled with water
like a bucket. The water pushed
the walls of the dam with as much
force as any wrestler.

The dams gave up, they opened.
The village down below
became a lake. And since then,
Nothing really has changed.


by Lauren Rogers

Your face was my embrace,
I loved you with all my heart and grace,
your soul lives on but I will never move on!

Thank you for all you did for me
and being my best friend in need!
I loved you with all my heart
and you will never grow old until the day we depart.

I loved you with all my heart
and now you have gone you have ripped me apart.
The day you left me, I went on my knees
and said ‘GOD’ help me please,
but he didn’t reply,
he just gave a ‘SIGH’,
that’s  the reason why
I know you’re safe up there
within the clouds above!

And now you are no longer in despair,
you will always be my Grandma,
the precious one to me
and I will always be your loved one
that you always had love for me.

I know you are  looking down!
And I hope you are now.
I loved your hugs and I always will!
But I knew one day
I had to let you free!
Like a little BEE!!
I know you’re safe up in the sky above.
Just tell me you are being loved??

did you have to leave?

The Day She Touched My Heart

by David P Carroll

You made me feel true love
Never knowing true love
The day you touched me
I fell in love
I couldn’t believe

I’m truly in love
The pleasures of romance
Drives me crazy but full of love
Oh sweetheart let’s dance

As you touch me with
Your tender touch, oh sweetheart
As your whisper softly
No other women could
Ever truly take your place
As I’ve found love

Only you could touch my heart
I don’t know what to say
I’d be still searching for love
Lovely today, but the day you
Came into my life was the Day

You touched my heart…..

Save Fuel

by Aditi Vishwanath

Imagine a life without fuel, where man would slowly yet perish, for the present, it is a nightmare, but soon would be our future.

With the exhausting sources of fuel, we are near to our own end, and one day would lie a barren earth, in place of the lush green cover.

But still lies an untouched chance, the key to reshape the future, the opportunity to restore energy, through a simple step of saving fuel.

A small step of taking car pools, and using the least possible electricity, a step of using the maximum of sun, would pave a path for a bright future.

To see vehicles moving on roads, being moved by petrol or diesel, we must be careful to not exhaust the treasured sources of fuel.

To see a future bounty of successes, we must take a step ahead of all, to prevent that dreadful future, where renewal of fuel’s most awaited.

A Magician

by Pragun Pudukoli

A clown wearing a black suit
made arrangements for his show
with the venue as the pavement.
He waited for the spectators to come
and began his show. He removed
strips of coloured paper from his mouth,
a rabbit from his hat and a gold coin
from everyone’s hair. He ended the
show by bowing, asking for money
for he was as poor as a beggar.
Then, he made that disappear too.

Marvel of Life

by Aditi Vishwanath

The marvel of nature’s balance,
between the pitter-patter of rain
and the beaming rays of sun,
teach us important lessons of life.

The grave error a man makes
is a slight imbalance in his life,
which makes his views erroneous
about this beautiful boon, life.

The balance must be smooth,
between life’s important factors,
work, hardships and relationship
and a control on care, rage and strife.

A tinge of balance in one’s life
can ignite the impulse hidden in,
to achieve worth a thousand goals
with just a little effort and interest.

A Place to Go

by Hidayah

Sometimes when you feel alone
and need a place to go
you think of your home
But where is your home?
Where’s the place you need to go sometimes?
I think about the people who have no home or place to go
so I feel hurt and alone

International Forever

by Yigit

I just want to plant the tree today,
Crying, laughing, amazing, shouting,
Not like the others,
I am not a nationalist!

On the other planets,
There would be no hearing,
My voice struggled at the galaxy,
But no one heard me.

Very long shoes,
With a short hoe,
Digging the world to bring peace,
Sadly, no one listened to me again.

What else could I do for this world?
To stop over nationalism,
I am not done yet.
We won’t let it happen again.
