    flooded riverbank
    small rocks from this sandy ledge
    lost for the moment

    Living
    in my village–
    everything so pleasant–
    who cares it's by Potemkin, still
    it's mine!

  3. kiwiskan Says:

    patchwork snow
    holding shadows of the past
    until spring

    chiaroscuro –
    the walk back home
    fills with snow

  5. amangr Says:

    Running,
    no prize in sight,
    bug knows this table well
    and still it can not stop itself
    seeking.

    Through fresh morning snow
    the tracks
    of a beast.

    New Year’s snow —

    we write our name

    quickly

  8. Amos White Says:

    wood smoke —

    now my footsteps

    follow me

    on my way
    to meet you, I sink
    now and then

    twenty years
    after the divorce . . .
    the wait for spring

  11. yfm Says:

    mourning

    morning and my heart yearns to find you lying next to me as I awake
    my arms find it not so

  12. amangr Says:

    Be still
    the Lisbon plane
    you dreamt that you were on
    was just a cardboard cut-out–dreams
    deceive.

  13. Deborah Leonard Says:

    Tracks in the snow
    memories melting away
    Like tears in my heart

  14. Isabelle Loverro Says:

    beneath the snow
    bulbs lay sleeping
    waiting for Spring

  15. Isabelle Loverro Says:

    morning mist
    crow's caw
    breaking the silence

    This article seems to be overlooking the fact that information is a saleable commodity and altruism comes a poor second to commerce

  17. Karen Harvey Says:

    I carried you
    for so long – but now
    we have parted
