insect’s deep sleep

inside the amber

Caroline Skanne

stone steps
down hops a fly
with only one wing

going home
an old oak
with its crows

 

 

John Hawkhead

wishing for dolphins
we purchase
plastic inflatables

 

sky change
the cold edge of grey
in his last coin

 

 

Margherita Petriccione

organ notes –
picking up from the ground
a fallen flower

 

Jack Galmitz

a boy
plays ball
steps ahead of nightfall

 

Elaine Wilburt

last drops
of homemade wine –
recycling Pap’s bottle
