how slight
the distance of our chairs
how wide
the chasm of our hearts
how we've unlearned to love

  a library book
of mathematical proofs
for one equals one –
how silly to think
I could survive this alone

space Julie B.Cain - USA

    alone in bed
reading My Home, No Home ...
the moans
of the midnight beast
grow louder and louder

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada

no longer
do I lament lost youth
but leaves
coloring on the maple tree
seem too much to bear

space Michele L. Harvey - USA

  knowing that haiku
are all around me
but these dark days
I'm just too lost
to find them
