crossing the bog
on a wooden path
as long as the sky
sheds light on the planks

  like spines
of a sycamore caterpillar
this long goodbye
suffused with a prickle
of abandonment

space Cynthia Rowe - Australia

    the red sun
succumbs to the ocean
a sailboat
dragging her shadow
through the light

space David He - China

battered teddy bear
his stuffing knocked out
I know how he feels
all love and warmth removed
we're left as empty shells

space Tracy Davidson - UK
spacer brush

  I complete
your chosen bucket list
without you ...
the dolphin's soothing clicks
calm my tears

    will I be an old woman
with a lap full of tears
or one
who walks into the light
casting the shadows behind me
