Bill Melton



the white racing clouds
skip from puddle to puddle
never getting wet




Julie Dickson



legs thick as tree trunks on concrete
wonder how freedom might feel
gray beast sways in sorrow




Justin Orlando



Shadow's shadow
cut from the wall,
split by candle flame.




Natalie A. Drozda



Morning dove perches, silent
in unconfessed darkness
I am a stranger to myself.




Suzanne Cottrell



Winding road lined with memories
Risks involved in retrieving
Some better left behind




Michael Flanagan



childhood memory…
a red flame in the darkness
and a dog’s wet nose




James Hanlon



tonight I saw a god
not a man
in the moon




Sabina Morris



the brackish water underneath the bow
the oars clicking, your breath hot
the pelicans still, watching our death




Heather Teague



Sitting at the computer
Mocked by that ever beating ebony bar
Words confine hearts seeking liberation




Jackie Maugh Robinson



candle flames
adding weight and time
to chiffon cake




Hannah-Rose Tristram



Branches heave with wet
red fruit. Fecund cider scent
comforts orchard air.




Laurie Decker



Scarlet lips kiss a song
Fingers tickle ivory
Whiskey pours, lovers drown




M.J. Iuppa



winter’s foggy gloom—
the flower shop’s door opens:
wholly daffodils
