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

    patchwork snow
    holding shadows of the past
    until spring

    chiaroscuro –
    the walk back home
    fills with snow

  4. amangr Says:

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

    Through fresh morning snow
    the tracks
    of a beast.

    New Year’s snow —

    we write our name

    wood smoke —

    now my footsteps

    follow me

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

    Love this one – the idea that woodsmoke is the first guest to arrive for a festive party is very clever!

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

  11. yfm Says:


    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

    Nicely put!

  14. Deborah Leonard Says:

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

  15. Isabelle Loverro Says:

    beneath the snow
    bulbs lay sleeping
    waiting for Spring

  16. 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

  18. Karen Harvey Says:

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