Poetry Buffet

Not all poems fall into one of our existing sections, and some refuse to be categorized at all. So we invented a category that's not a category, a place where we can put just about anything we want.

So, grab a clean plate and get in line with all the other hungry visitors. We have a smorgasbord of delights we're sure you're going to appreciate.

And, by all means, feel free to return to the buffet for seconds! There's always room for poetry...

  • by Indronil B
    Words, gentle and soft, are not always as they seem. Read the poem first, then the author's description, to see of which I speak.
  • by Arugula Grub
    Fantasy is the fabric of the mind. And, perhaps, of life.

    The arts are surely intertwined, and this poetic artist combines verbal skill with the visual talents of a painter.

    We all search for meaning. And, often, for much more as well.

    The days of large-scale nuclear testing are past. But the fears are remembered.

  • by Shane Downing
    Some things are more than they may seem.
  • by Meghan Mcguinness

  • by Dustin Raymond
    Memories and fantasies can lead us into very strange, unexpected regions of our minds.
