Indian summer –
near my house a fruit tree
blossoms again
but all around the orchard
no bee, no butterfly

  walking alone
the ridge of this mountain
were you here
you would have named
each birdcall, each wildflower

    rocky bluff –
an old boot
stuck in a crevice …
did he too
have a blistered heel?

My two sons
share too many of
my bad habits –
the dandelion reveals
a crack in the cement

space George Swede - Canada

  wild flowers
squabble with the wind
traps him
between two voices

space Mary Davila - USA

with a hatful of sky
the night
is my only cloak
and soon my shroud
