Inside the peach
plump and sweet
a textured pit
hard as stone –
the surprise of her

loosing the blues
petal by petal
I wait out the coldness
freezing her heart

space Carl Seguiban - Canada

    in a quiet arm
of the estuary
two strips
of blue ribbon
tied to the wild bamboo

space Owen Bullock - Australia

butterflies –
she smiles
at a wink
of blue wings

space Rodney Williams - Australia

  ink blue skies
studded with moth-eaten dreams …
a part of me
that dies a little
each time you walk away

space Shloka Shankar - India
spacer brush

    every day
a different mountain
with you
there's no knowing when
we'll reach the peak

space Maxianne Berger - Canada
