tall coconut palms
reaching out to the sky
I measure
            my breath
with a cicada's song

spaceKala Ramesh - India
spacer brush

  I pause to digest
your presence
we’ve known each other
too well in the dark
to stop talking

spaceSergio Ortiz - Puerto Rico
spacer brush

    the way he didn't
even look at me
when I told him…
midsummer & still unripe
this tangle of wild blackberries

spaceKirsten Cliff - New Zealand
spacer brush

I've learned it's best
not to voice my feelings…
evening cool
alone on the porch
untangling the wind chimes

spaceClaire Everett - UK
spacer brush

on a butterfly’s
torn wing
my trust
in the universe
