“An Instant” by Jordan Bakare

When I was young I measured moments in the space between ceiling fan blades and thought about the moving world. Marveling that no moment was ever the same that though things seemed to repeat everything always changed. I still think of that sometimes while I watch them turn. – MFNT (Jordan Bakare)

“Delirium” by Reha


i vividly remember –
building castles in air
entering doorways through a light beam
meeting strangers with familiar eyes
i remember it all too well

neither a dream
nor cognitive distortions
maybe this is the world
i’ve always belonged to

where you stamped
the castles, as failures
the doorways, as heartbreaks
the eyes, an ethereal illusion

but darling all this while
you were the moon in delirium
and i the sunlight,
hoping one day
you’d find your own light.

“The Sentry Box” by Jeni G.

The Sentry Box

Once it was the barracks
of an old and proud regiment
The parade ground rang
with the sound of soldiers marching
and shouting out of orders
the sentry kept watch
from his box by the gates.

The regiment is now disbanded
no longer the pride of the town
the parade ground rings
with the sound of tourists chatting
and children playing
the sentry box stands empty
forgotten in front of the gate

But wait! Is that an echo I hear
whispering across time
the sound of soldiers marching
and shouting out of orders
the changing of the guard
in his box by the gate.

“Acts Of Kindness” by Jeni G.

“Kindness Matters” by Jeni G.

An open mind
A generous heart
A helping hand
An act of kindness is born.

One act of kindness
Each day for a year
365 lives could be changed.

“Acts Of Kindness” by Jonathan Falk

Be kind to yourself.
The struggle continues with
Or without your help.

“Scars” by Jonathan Falk

Be kind to your loves.
The days of infection may
Take them all, not love.

“Wooden Meaning” by Jonathan Falk

Be kind to chaos.
Bring structure, be ant, know where
To put your needle.

“One Of Some” by Jonathan Falk

A warm welcome to Isugar Magazine 2018, topic “Acts Of Kindness”. May they appear. May they be ours.

“Mouse Grey” by bm3poetic

Covers pulled up tight
Winter blanketing my view
Haze hanging
On the horizon

Time to feel merry
But all I feel is blue
Brushing away icicles

Encircling my heart
Breathing fire across
My veins

Memories of childhood
Lost behind a layer
Of dust

Sadness clinging in the crevices
Footprints across my soul

“Silver Linings” by Reha

“Silver Linings” by Jonathan Falk

to the mornings
you struggled
in search of purpose
cheers, for getting a day closer
to the midnights
you ruffled through sheets
instead of sleep
cheers, for feeling the 4am vibes
to the friends
who turned their backs
at times of holding your back
cheers, for finding the real ones
to the places
that remind you
of bittersweet times
cheers, for not crying this time
to sun and rain
to love and pain
for still keeping up
through every inch
of thorn
for giving yourself
another chance
for never growing too old
to believe in silver linings.
