PEGGY LYLES:
 
 

the dark eyes
of a panda . . .
New Year's Day

one year
becomes another . . .
driftwood

attic sun
from grandmother's gown
a grain of rice


 

PAUL MacNEIL:
 
 

stream-split forest
the walls hold mist
and darkness

light fades
before the summer storm
a finch cracks a seed

autumn afternoon
only loonsong
crosses the forest


 

MARIA STEYN:
 
 

a butterfly flits
from branch tip to branch tip . . .
lifting mist

a bird rustles
deep inside the fig tree
raindrops

lunar eclipse
the cat watches us
watch the moon


 

CINDY TEBO:
 
 

watery eyes
dust from the new boy
clapping erasers

busy receptionist
one of her false eyelashes
comes unglued

shotgun blast
the snow deepens
between stones


 

JOANN KLONTZ:
 
 

rest home newsletter
again the puzzle page
with no answer key

first snow
he's out to the schoolbus
in one long slide

headed south
the first magnolia
slows me down


 

paul m:
 
 

everyone has gone
a forgotten mitt
catches the rain

the last spring moon
a shelved book falling
of its own accord

pine forest
half a smooth river stone
where there is no trail


 

WINONA BAKER:
 
 

hunter’s moon –
waves lap the woman
carved in the rock

snowflakes fill
the eye of the eagle
fallen totem pole

Egypt disappoints
she saw the pyramids
in Vegas


 

DEBRA WOOLARD BENDER:
 
 

secondhand store
reclaiming me
our give-away cat

i too am alone
between swift currents
old river rock

winter morning
are those two ravens
reunited lovers?


 

KATHY LIPPARD COBB:
 
 

ski lift
the kissing couple
miss their stop

sunday morning
again the organist
off key

crowded mall
the little girl asks Santa
what he wants for Christmas


 

DENIS GARRISON:
 
 

snowdrifts
by the dyer's hut
eight shades of blue
 

red pagoda
in swirling snow
the muffled gong


 

CHRISTOPHER PATCHEL:
 
 

lingering sunlight
         the last bouquet
         of queen anne's lace

 a crowded mall
 so many coins
 in the fountain

 the passing
 of a dance instructor
 my favorite moves


 

JOANNA WESTON:
 
 

wind
through the car window
a butterfly

grandchild's
small hand -
giant maple leaf


 

LARRY KIMMEL:
 
 

summer porch
painting her toe nails pink
also the dog's

               in the shade
      old men play checkers
the mockingbird's repertoire


 
running downhill into fragrance of fresh mown hay

 

NECA STOLLER:
 
 

another day of rain –
old puddles
joining together

early fog –
it reveals then hides
the pines

winter pool –
the sheen of suntan oil
on the shallow end


 

CHRISTOPHER HEROLD:
 
 

early twilight
snow enters the barn
on the backs of cows

the magnolia
releases a petal's worth
lavender shade

lost at last
even this sunrise
a complete mystery
