worlds apart
I feel
her touch
the words
I should have said

  family home
quietly closing down
to darkness room by room –
mother’s search for words

in that sepia image
steals my sleep ...
is it the light behind you
I cannot find again?

dementia patient
today he holds the hand
of a new woman
together they examine
the ring on her finger

space Elaine Riddell - New Zealand

  a rain cloud
passing from one window
to another ...
yet lying on my table
these dried flowers

space Archana Kapoor Nagpal - India

    nothing blooming
in the winter garden
another bed
with freshly tucked corners
waiting in palliative care
