blood test
on a wet autumn morning
the nurse tells me
she has seventeen roses
all of them white

space Andre Surridge – New Zealand
spacer brush

  when all I needed
was to dance
on the cool green grass
my partner always the same –
the summer moon

space Angela Leuck – Canada
spacer brush

    on a heritage walk
my daughter and I
stand witness
to Mumbai's rush hour traffic ...
gargoyles against blue sky

space Kala Ramesh – India
spacer brush

in grainy sepia
our expectant young faces ...
soon it will be a year
since the boy leaning on me
committed suicide

space Sonam Chhoki – Bhutan
spacer brush

  she asks me
what is the color
of loneliness ...
in the woman before me
I see a girl veiled in black

space Chen-ou Liu – Canada
