at Grandma's,
willow pattern plates
were our favourites
crossing a bridge
to our imaginations

  these old dishes
crazed with spidery veins –
the "good china"
saved for special occasions
few and far between

flickering on faces
lost in shadow
a crack
in the hearthstone

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA
spacer brush

carving a slice
of darkness into my soul
that split second
down the stairs

space Susan Burch - USA

comes wrapped in cellophane
with roses –
not one of the neighbours
believes she slipped on pavers

    another petal drops …
just like the crimson roses
perhaps it’s time
we set our own lives
on the table
