blackbirds gather
in loud company
merry bands of migrants
fill the fields
with seeds of winter

  so neat
the ridged roofs
shielding lives
as if in boxes like seeds
our hearts can grow

    I wake
to find myself
invisible –
dust motes shimmer
in a shaft of sun

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA

this time
i won't take you back
again & again
the arrowroot pierces
my heart

space Pamela A. Babusci - USA

  juicy sweet
the cherry's pulp
so bitter
when its stone heart
is broken

space Luminita Suse - Canada
spacer brush

grows around the dead deer
by the road
my heart breaks
again, again
