in lavender taffeta
she sits swinging her feet
on the too-tall chair...
a forest of black-clad legs
around her mother's bed

spaceJulie Cain - USA
spacer brush

  the empty farmhouse
in its long-dry cistern
but the dust
of imagined rain

spaceLeRoy Gorman - Canada
spacer brush

    sun sizzles
over the pavement –
in this heat
a single tear
can dry in seconds

spaceJanet Lynn Davis - USA
spacer brush

on a shelf
in her dining room…
the red truck
her father bought
hoping for a boy

spaceKenneth Slaughter - USA
spacer brush

  through the years
I connect reflections
to get a grip
on my fragmented life…
the cloud-capped moon

spaceKala Ramesh - India
