t. kilgore splake
calumet  michigan:

phone marketers hangups
 encouraging old poet
secret admirer still alive


                            catfish mcdaris
                            west allis  wisconsin:
                                                                                    
                                                                The Desert

Cochise’s dry hot tears                                  
skeletons of buffalo
windstorm ghosts dry death.                                    




mary jo balistreri
genesee depot  wisconsin:

    Witness

    As the storm comes
    closer
    the bent-limbed oaks
    offer shelter
    to fluttering finches,
    yellow-slick feathers
    curled into
    golden balls
    ornaments
    of hope
    in a deep-rumble sky


nancy shires
greenville  north carolina:

                             little wren
                             smaller than
                             his own song

if I don't move. . .
cat curled in the crook
of my legs


  donna snow
  lakeland  tennessee: 

  Today lilacs are in full bloom

  Their sweet smell my odd companion

  At the breakfast table;

  What a delicious tea!



a j huffman
ormond beach  florida:

Fog-filled dreams disperse.
Freeing my mind to wander
In and out of sleep.

                                      Listen to the trees.
                                      They whisper themselves silent.
                                      My nature is to follow. 



christina sng  
singapore:

                 first day of summer
                 a raven feather
                 at the door


curled up with books
endless winter nights
spent in other worlds


    jim kacian
    winchester  virginia:


top down
the midwest
unfolds


           Sunday morning
           a jazz riff
           in the mockingbird's call



    fog the sound of the foghorn



karen o'leary
west fargo  north dakota:


sepia pages
peace settles                                 central farm time    
between the wrinkles                       milking the cows before
                                               the cock crows



frosty and tama: "goodbye, everyone!  treats, belly rubs, 
                                            and peace for all!"



see you in a moment
