lost my way
taking a short cut
distant thunder

Neal Whitman

night's wail
the wind and rain tussle
back and forth

Bernard Gieske

end of the tracks
pipistrelle bats skitter
through sunset

Michele L. Harvey
USA


the grace
of snowfall on cold roads
distance sirens

Thomas H Chockley

sometime at night
my thoughts turn into
cricket songs

Dietmar Tauchner
Austria


morning mist
its power to hide me
from myself

Angela Terry

rising tide . . .
a mollusc fleetingly
touches my toe

Shloka Shankar
India


two geese
with different wingbeats—
staying together

Ruth Holzer
USA





the slant
of each breakwater rock
twilight yoga

Bill Cooper
USA


gray clouds . . .
an eagle's wingspan
measuring silence

Paresh Tiwari
India


at sunset—
a falling acorn ticks
against branches

Brad Bennett
USA


barefoot afternoon
my feet sharing the sweetgrass
with a hill of ants

Lesley Swanson
USA


the white lotus
glides on pond ripples—
a fish leaps

Valerie Jean Schafer
USA


morning spring rain
a blackbird on the nest
shelters her chicks

Nancy May

half-way across
the icy footbridge
Vespers bells

Mark Brager

wild geese
an arrow points
the way
