had the gods said
your life for your unborn child's
I would have given
but they never asked me
nor answered my silent prayers

space Sonam Chhoki - Bhutan


wasted breath
thinking of things
beyond control
            I recollect
father's constant whistling

space Kala Ramesh - India


how little
we matter in life
how small our voices
compared to the west wind
the crash of sea waves

space Joy McCall - UK

at my mother's house
her stiff-legged dog follows me
from room to room:
empty chair, silent cane,
broken routines

space Pat Tompkins - USA


dad's number
still in my mobile contacts
i can't bring myself
to delete it
so much i'd like to say

space Simon Hanson - Australia
