all these
family secrets
suddenly exposed ...
in the middle of the night
the owl's scream

space Anna Goluba - Poland
spacer brush

  winter rain
on and off, on and off ...
thoughts of home
by a barking dog

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada

    old fears
imprison him behind bars
of memory –
in patrolling darkness
he plots the perfect escape

space Gavin Austin - Australia

another branch
from our family tree
broken off …
how many more years
will be lost to the silence

space Mary Davila - USA
spacer brush

  the amulets
I clasp against the gloom –
a shooting star,
the passing shadow of a leaf,
the lingering of song

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA

    the next blue distance …
longing makes travellers
of us all
now in spring's first iris
I've arrived, I am home

space Claire Everett - UK
