cold rain
darkness trickles
off the tiles

                             by Rachel Sutcliffe

on a metallic sea—
scent of plumeria  

                              by Jann Wright

                                            by Lavana Kray

frail moon
we float in the violet
sash of twilight

atop a black-eyed susan
a dark-eyed butterfly

stony creek
make things look easy

                                           by Jann Wright

hovering drone 
a toddler cries,


            only grey lines
            in his coloring book

                                           by R.D. Bailey

the small box 
at the child’s funeral
the angles of loss

stilled air 
a nightjar’s song
draws in the dusk 

                                  by John Hawkhead

blue lit
tang of woodsmoke
smudges twilight

falling petals
a one-footed black bird
stabs the earth

a snail
the size of a dewdrop...
morning silvers

taken by the sea

morning glories with one day to be blue

                                by Jann Wright 

and all is mended
a passing cloud opens
the moonflowers

                              by Julie Warther

                                      by Lavana Kray

morning prayer--
sharing their grief
with the statue 

                                 by   Pravat Kumar Padhy
