She was my age now
so I can believe she walked
two miles
through knee-deep snow
but slowly slowly slowly

by arthritis speaking
from the hip …
this boulder-strewn path
we all walk together

space Ken Slaughter - USA
spacer brush

    in a bare field
a ‘stones for sale’ notice
boulders of all sizes
piled in cairns and dotted
about the green pasture

no fences
left on the farm
the cattle are long gone
& memories
are close behind

space LeRoy Gorman - Canada
spacer brush

  dairy farmer
recently retired
to the city
dreams of the open sky
& his soft-eyed girls

space André Surridge - New Zealand
spacer brush

    in the park
she gazes into his eyes
as he does hers
should he rush to her side
barking or wagging his tail
