Please come and enjoy the elegant and beautiful love poem – STILL by Sabrina!

Sabrina Escorcio


I want to fold you into me
carry promises like the
words you once wrote
on ivory parchment
in black ink
with letters that curved
and bowed
into fluid vows
inscribed by heart
tuck you precisely between
the safety of my rib cage
where truth remains, still
untouched by time
to reside
to endure
within each pulse echo

Sabrina Escorcio

Shades of Gray

Come read the love poem – SHADES OF GRAY and see if perhaps you have a tinge of it still in your life too!

Confab With Me

You spilled your shades of hues
on my heart,
and escaped unannounced,
leaving me drenched
in your tinge and grays for a lifetime,
and no matter how much I try,
the dark spots of your yesteryear love refuse to go away,
and now I live an ostensible life
with the color of your past yore

Reading life

Come and enjoy – READING LIFE in all it’s many splendid beauty and ways!

Megha's World

thought-catalog-246312 (1)I’m reading life
Reading between the lines on the palm
Reading between the crow’s-feet
Reading between the corner of your smile
Reading between the laughing lines

Reading between the truth and the lie
Reading between the heartache and the makeups
Reading between the tears and the peck on the cheek
I’m reading life as hard as it can be

Reading between the dance and silence of the emotions
Reading between the pause and the flowing love
Reading between the hugs and the parting ache
I’m reading life as hard as it can be

There is so much hidden and so much is revealed
It’s all there to find and all there to conceal
Sometimes I find you sitting there and waiting for me
Something you just leave a puzzle for me.

I’m reading life as hard it can be
Trying so hard to
make a sense out of it

On Becoming A Writer: Chuck Lindholm

Please come and learn a little bit more about me from – ON BECOMING A WRITER – CHUCK LINDHOLM as posted on the Go Dog Go Cafe site!

Go Dog Go Café

An important part of every writer’s journey is the transition from seeing ourselves as “someone who writes” to seeing ourselves as writers.  We asked all the Go Dog Go Baristas to tell us a little bit about their journey as a writer.  We hope you enjoy learning more about the Baristas and are inspired by their stories.


My Moniker is “The Reluctant Poet”!  I guess that tells you a lot about my journey to becoming a poet/writer.  My given name is Charles Robert Lindholm but I answer to Chuck.  Thanks for taking time to read a little bit about me.  I’m hoping that some of what I say may be of some inspiration or encouragement to you on your journey as a writer/poet.

When you did you start writing?

Funny when I think back on the start of me writing!  It was really as simple as doing a Senior English…
