within and without,
I walk
my shadow to the sea
and ride the waves

space Kala Ramesh - India
spacer brush

  Tilting her head
astigmatism gives her
double images
merging and separating
she falls in and out of love

space J. Zimmerman - USA

    could you be
the island around which
I want to sail
          the tide pulling me in
          tugging me out again

space Bernard Gieske - USA
spacer brush

in tongues of tides
the call and answer
of moon and sea
our words becoming sand

space Debbie Strange - Canada
spacer brush

  year after year
the tide rises
I’m so far asea I wonder
how do I go back home
and who will know my name

space Elizabeth Howard - USA
spacer brush

    when the coast clears
and there's no one left
who knows my name
I lam it, with a hobo moon
and the wind at my back

space S.M. Abeles - USA
spacer brush
