you sit
like a rock in the river
flowing smoothly
around your silence

spaceJan Foster - Australia
spacer brush

  in memory of him
I walk the rough trails we made
along the riverbanks
where child's play shaped our lives
and summer would never end

spaceFerris Gilli - USA
spacer brush

    in spite of brave words
I walk the ledge in fear
red fingertips staining rock
my breath a whirlwind
whistling up the canyon

spaceElizabeth Howard - USA
spacer brush

paused on twigs
as if the end
comes as plain
as an empty platter

spaceAlegria Imperial - Canada
spacer brush

  bound to be poison
red-berried bushes
border a cliff edge
where lovers consider

spaceLeRoy Gorman - Canada
spacer brush
