1. Immersed by Ricardo via RS CIIPHER

I’m still drowning in your Aura.
The ship has sunk into “Utopia”.
– Your Eyes are enticing sirens;
(Plus) your price welcomes me.

Uninterrupted. – I’m catapulted
…by many seas, and one reason.
I’m out of season. Flowery eyed;
I’m sedated under the solidified.

So exhausted; I’ve fallen asleep.
I like [when you see] and I don’t.
So excited. I’m filled with [a sip].
But I will not swim back. I won’t.

2. “Frustrations of a Writer,” by Josephine Amoako via Joseyphina’s World


So quiet in there;

Wondering where all the loud thoughts disappeared to;

Can’t seem to find a single stray thought to hold on to;

As if they are hiding away from me;

Afraid of what I’d do to them;

The silence is deafening;

Even with music in my ears;

It feels like it’s playing into a vacuum;

Hitting the walls of the brain;

And bouncing right back to me;

3. Fantasy Haiku I by Carboniferous Fern

Honey song rising
from the river mouth, fine lips
of merfolk glisten.

Green grass is pooling
over water, which stirs when
heads rise on long necks.

Many thin-edged wings
filter the morning light, both

Crack in red ceiling:
outside the cave, warm wind sweeps —
a dragon flies past.
