a world of life
beneath the flaking bark
of this dead tree –
the shelter I find
in hidden hollows

space Janet Lynn Davis - USA

  an inch worm
dangling twenty feet
from the maple
         with trepidation
         I start a new journey

space Adelaide B. Shaw - USA

    the hen bird
plain of colour and song
yet a woman
handwrote the code that set
Man's feet upon the moon

space Claire Everett - UK
spacer brush

rising tide
you ask me
who made moon and stars
... on our tongues
the salt of the universe

space Ramona Linke - Germany
spacer brush

on each other’s conversation
in unknown tongues
the birds in the tree,
we on the porch

space Mary Frederick Ahearn - USA
spacer brush

balancing on a wire
but today
the strange temptation
to see if I might fly

space Stephen Toft - UK
