the robin song
of morning and evening dusk
that time
before I ever was
and after I'm gone

  maple leaves
tremble in the autumn wind
a pool of blood
in the long shadow
of the Peace Tower

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada

    her closet
filled with memories
his uniform
beside the wedding dress
she never wore

space Mel Goldberg - Mexico

dreaming of how
I want my life to change
in early March
I walk by the river
as a south wind blows cold

space Thelma Mariano - Canada

  thinking about
everything I lost
and gained
a song from my childhood
in a foreign tongue

space Maria Kowal-Tomczak - Poland
spacer brush

    one by one
I recall my dreams
so distant now
    the violin in her hands,
    the smooth run of her bow
