Lindy Ryan



Sky full of clover:
a bouquet of red roses
one lonely tulip




Genevieve Fitzgerald



there was a time I
waited anxiously for you
to stand on your own




Genevieve Fitzgerald



past the tunnel of
headlights there is only faith
the dark road goes on




Genevieve Fitzgerald



snow owl, talons low,
white wings wide, all intention
on need, never want




Frances Ayers



Birds sing lullaby
As snow falls gently on tree
Moonshadows appear




Shirley Smothers



Anger consumes me
Eats my soul like a cancer
Self inflicted hell




Kimberly Cowan



one clear dancing pool
water full of moonlight sang
between dreaming leaves




Jesse Silva-Sanborn



This city of red
Drowning in the salts of life
A forgotten home




Lydia Kim



Who is that singing
So early in the morning
That blue annoyance




Kirsten Cox



Artists and writers,
Die before their time they say,
Thus, don't let them drive.




Traci De La O



Stillness of the dawn
where the lonely cry rings out
and the sun rises




Traci De La O



shadows dance on grass
escape from sunlight harshness
summertime retreat




Traci De La O



barren limbs dangle
over frosted winter grounds
casting their shadows




Dennis Herrell



A long summer drought
old woman in a lawn chair
watering dead grass




Dennis Herrell



A bass freshly caught
lies still as death in the grass
then flops to water




Melnick Susie



Morning sleepiness
Enveloped by warm soft sheets
Resisting the day




Jonathan Patterson



truths pass her lips like
soft creases of a folded,
white paper napkin




Jonathan Patterson



petals fall from stalks,
gypsies lose their virgin souls
in cold, snow bathed streets




Jonathan Patterson



infant fingers dip,
small ripples undulate and
sink their paper boats




Christopher Moniz



A flake falls softly
Blankets purify the earth
Drifts with no return




David Edwards



touch the horizon
that which cannot be attained
must be attempted




David Edwards



chilling at sunrise
the sight of frost on sere leaves
the warmth of blankets




Mauri Orr Stone



bare wisterias
are bespeckled in bright mauve
bleak winter's ending




Mauri Orr Stone



recently tilled soil,
hunting ground for hungry fowl,
ends cold winter's dearth




Mauri Orr Stone



when least expected
winter's drought grass has revealed
tiny white flowers




Aaron Poller



front lawn tire prints
the honda sits at the curb
dreaming winter gone




Aaron Poller



daffodil delights
anticipate what new loss
the back door open




Virginie Colline



a smile of bonheur
the French word for happiness
blooms like a flower




Mandy Brown



Readied nursery
Sobbing mother rocks herself
Mourning empty crib




Elvis Fix



The days of daisies
Dionysian despots
of monotony.




Susma Sharma Gurumayum



Red, white, yellow, pink
The rose garden's in full bloom
Fragrance all around




Susma Sharma Gurumayum



Day dreaming, such fun
I?m the queen, the maid, the whore
Liable to none




Shirley Smothers



A ghostly soldier
A mother and babe alone
The Price of Freedom




Gopal Lahiri



You stand tall in ruins
Making order out of chaos
Salute you, my friend.




Maria Rivera



A cold day in March
when I though spring had arrived
snow and cold came back




Dr.Mary Annie A.V. (anna Maria)



an endless circle
of birth and death and footsteps
straying inbetween.

flutter flash of hues
poise over nectar perfect
return home humming




Chris Epting



In fading spring light
long lost friends find each other
adventure unfolds




Chris Epting



spring light kisses her
brushed mauve and golden hues
bring her peace at dawn




Chris Epting



her midnight glamour -
diamonds on indigo sky
twinkle in her eyes




Andrew Scott



Be taken away,
in the pages of new words,
feel the adventure.




Andrew Scott



Life's gotten so dull,
just want to run, breathe real air,
in the nature's breeze




James Knight



Lone gull on a sea
dons the sun and moon for wings
and soars forever




Christina Murphy



pastels of blossoms
in deserted railroad yards
images of hope




Christina Murphy



winter's dance begins
radiator castanets
fill the house with warmth

storm-streaked evening
clouds forming in a gray sky
thunder playing drums

plentiful and green
this spring the plum tree's budding
promises new growth

The winds reaps our crops
Harvesters with no mercy
Like life taking flight

the small red maple
is the perfect climbing tree
for the happy child

the bats still spread black
wings across the front window
on thanksgiving day
