old roses
losing petals
in the breeze –
we dance
while we still can

  hayfield full
with leaping grasshoppers
it was such a day
one of us
bounced on the moon

    he writes
of entropy
and my cells
all sigh, and say
yes, we know

it’s a little thing
this gift of sympathy
to a friend –
but insistent as I add
my own breath and words

space Patricia Prime - New Zealand
spacer brush

  pegging out
the towel that dried me –
we draw a line
between the ways
we serve each other

space Hazel Hall - Australia

    all his life
he loved wearing
different hats –
at the nursing home
none seem to fit
