January Topic: Love lost, love found

Dear Poets

we were inspired by the series The Young Pope where the pope writes a letter about love (see below).

Love lost, love found….. we can’t wait to read your ideas and poems on this topic.

Marie, Jarek, Adam

What is more beautiful, my love? Love lost or love found? Don’t laugh at me, my love. I know it, I’m awkward and naive when it comes to love, and I ask questions straight out of a pop song. This doubt overwhelms me and undermines me, my love. To find… . or to lose? All around me, people don’t stop yearning. Did they lose or did they find? I can’t say. An orphan has no way of knowing. An orphan lacks a first love. The love for his mama and papa. That’s the source of his awkwardness, his naiveté. You said to me, on that deserted beach in California, “you can touch my legs.” But I didn’t do it. There, my love, is love lost. That’s why I’ve never stopped wondering, since that day: where have you been? Where you are now?
And you, the shining gleam of my misspent youth, did you lose or did you find? I don’t know. And I will never know. I can’t even remember your name, my love. And I don’t have the answer. But this is how I like to imagine it, the answer. In the end, my love, we have no choice. We have to find.

Breaking Point

When a dayBREAK


BREAKing its silence

BREAKing the ice


there’s even BREAK

you’ll BREAK my heart

to BREAK me free

just like a prison BREAK

even if


BREAKS the rules






I flew

to thee






November-December Topic – Advent

Dear Poets

Advent is knocking on the door so let’s share some poems about this enchanting time of the year.

Advent: the time to listen for footsteps – you can’t hear footsteps when you’re running yourself.” Bill McKibben

Marie, Jarek and Adam


May + June Topic: Spring – The Time of Love

Dear Poets,

we apologize for a little break and look forward to reading your poems about Spring – The  Time of Love.


Marie, Jarek and Adam


In mother’s eyes


Which never dies


Tied to platonic apron string


About which Plato did not write anything


Untamed time of hunt


One wants to stunt


Melody of marriage life


Sung by a silent fife


The one which is wanted


Romantic but always haunted


Hidden in poems, hidden in music


Never and always elusive

April Topic – Spring

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke


Dear poets,

do you like spring as much as we do? Write about it, express it, share it – we can’t wait!

Marie, Jarek, Adam

Promising Morning (Breakfast)

Ham and eggs

Reading rags


A Glass of juice

Willis Bruce

In the paper

Near skyscraper


A piece of cake

Sweet milkshake

Tea with honey

honey is runny


Breakfast, brunch

No time for lunch!
