the loneliness of rain
falling all afternoon
long into evening
the river rises
to meet the sky

  one-star hotel
nobody to stop me
climbing on the roof
to share my loneliness
with the night sky

space Brian Robertson - Germany
spacer brush

    each window
a David Hockney collage
of our street
his hand on the door knob
images fragmented

space Thomas H. Chockley - USA

distressed wood floor,
doorknobs and fixtures
of aged bronze –
this house looks the way
I've started to feel

space Janet Lynn Davis - USA
spacer brush

  lying down
in mom’s apartment
next to the zoo –
the howls for freedom
deep in my bones

space Susan Burch - USA
spacer brush

    a half-built house
framed and forgotten
I sit
level and plumb
my bones open to spring rain

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA
spacer brush
