her old upright
stored in the shed
worn keys
that somehow recall
the touch of her fingers

  knit one, purl one
this old afghan handed down
over generations
yet the hand-dyed yarn
still bright with berry, bark, and root

space Elizabeth Howard - USA

    so serious
for one so young
her dark
fatherless son
born in the depth of winter

what to do
with the broken pieces ...
a severed branch
becomes my walking stick
here where the woods grow deeper

space Rebecca Drouilhet – USA

  autumn sunset
on salmon gums
reaching toward the light
will I always struggle
to cast off this darkness

space Tash Adams - Australia
spacer brush

    in the cobweb
dropped blossoms
quiver –
i walk indecision
to the end of the block

space Sondra J. Byrnes - USA
