These days

throwing my gaze
at the same lane
at the same sun
on the same kids and women
at the same time
each day
while you sip down golden yellow cider
from your goblet
and your almost bare legs
with pink shorts spread
on the green chair in front of you
and you acknowledge
as well as I
how good life is
these days.

Hello. I am Tomic Riter, a writer. I write poems almost every day. I am writing since four years. I am currently living a meaningless life, and while I am living it, I am also working on a poetry book. It is semi- autobiographical in nature. I love music. I am hooked to it all the time. I read mad writers. That’s pretty much about me.

Ultimate destiny

The scenery we drew,
Had a boat with a sailor,
As we grew,
The boat became our life..
We the sailors…
….with the help of the propellors…
sailing through the river..
To a place that existed ever….

The place that existed…
The ultimate destination..
DEATH
The final docking station..

Of Mortals and Men

If tree tops whispered
Secrets and tales
Of fairies and whales
And endless days
I would find a way
To live there every day
And forever will I stay

If clouds of rain
Can defuse the pain
And unshackle the chains
May it rain forever
May it rain on my face
As I run this race
Forever being chased

In the woods, I belong
Where nothing is wrong
And I can sing out my song
Where magic is real
And I finally can feel
My soul begins to heal
Where I made the deal

Fog creeps in from above
And I see you standing there
With your golden hair
As magical as you are fair

I found the leak
That the order seeks
It’s where you came to be
The creature I now see

My Reflection In A Casserole Dish

“It’s an emergency!” She said, running into the room
“One of the fish just jumped out of the Casserole Dish!”
Naked, but with no time to spare,
I’m up and I’m off down the stair.
“Where did it land?”
I open the door but it’s not on the floor,
“Where did it land?”

“In the rubbish,” She called
and then I see it.
A still slither of fading gold
on a pale polyethene shroud
like the last of the sunrise
dissolving into cold daylight.

Gently I reach down,
cup it in my hand
and catch the eye of its partner,
alone.
Sad eyes staring out of the still, cold water.
My reflection.

Something wriggles in my hand
and is quickly dropped into the water
now a torrent of splashes and currents
As partners re-unite.

Five minutes later
they’re back in the tank
eating fish food beside UK Gold

and I’m telling my wife it was nothing.

I have been writing poetry now since 1995 and my work has featured in anthologies, newspapers and radio and was also filmed for television. I have just recently left a long standing job in the Telecomms Industry to pursue writing full time and have been writing full time since January this year. I have a WordPress Blog called Adventures Among The White Horses which features poetry, songs and travel writing.

Latticed Lives

every intersection
builds a link
to interwoven existences
minuscule to complex

timelines cross
stories intertwine
where one begins
another ends

these storylines
build the strength
of humankind
a world connected

WordPress and Me. A Marriage Made in Heaven

I love our union, WordPress
(Must not forget cap P)
I find it so exciting
wordpress and poet me
Shit…forgot the P

Learning code? I’m past it
(Remember, Don, cap P)
I would be more than hopeless
Word Press come marry me
Shit!.. there’s no space

Take me with your hidden code
Make all my dreams come true
Help me grow in Blogger Land
And fertilize me too

At the water’s edge

at the waters edge, where ever-so
slight slips lead to complete immersion , and
tranquility was not a place or sound
or feeling, but a brief flickering, a fast passing of a moment.
illuminating Alice’s finger just for a brief instance, then
poof!
gone was that beautiful butterfly, and with it
the peace of mind that once could be found so close
to the water’s edge.

My names is Jason Venter and i am 28 year writer from a small village in South Africa called Napier. I work as a waiter here at a place called Pascal’s of Napier and this pays the bills, but I’ve always been writing and hoping to one day  not have to wipe tables and instead write poetry full time.
