ways of leaving:
the yolk of the mind
the shell of the body –
all the king’s horses

  frazil ice
on a mountain lake
at breakup
the tinkling chimes
signal your departure

space Debbie Strange - Canada

    pressing play
on the answering machine
again and again
to hear your voice
… over and over

closed door ...
even so, the moonflower
finds a way in
all I ever wanted
was for you to stay

space Laura Williams - USA
spacer brush

of advent calendars
my mother sent,
each marked with its year …
so many doors left open

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA

    in my hands
the quartered orange
falls open
like a paper fortune teller
on the last day of winter
