cracked moonlight
across the patio floor ...
an empty wheelchair
where once you sat
locked in silence

  always
an adage for life’s
complications
my mother’s tight twist
locks the lid on a jar

space Jan Dobb - Australia
spacer brush

 
    her perfect coiffure
and designer suit
softened by the touch
of an eyelash
perched upon her cheek

space Wendy Bourke - Canada
spacer brush

behind branches
winter’s bright moon
the fullness
of all the things
that hurt

space Elena Calvo - Canada
spacer brush

   
  like plainsong
or Shaker furniture
no-nonsense –
if I were a font
I’d be sans serif

space Autumn Noelle Hall - USA
spacer brush

 
    no matter
what Father just said ...
his right hand
keeps erasing the words
on the blackboard of his mind

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada
