roaming coyotes



dead hens in the autumn fields –

no eggs till next year

— Kelly Cowan


a murmuration

of migrant starlings

a thousand beating hearts

— Barbara Robidoux


On election night

We built a backyard campfire;

Thought of Rome, burning.

— Darla Graff Thompson


clear blue sky above

jagged mountain inviting

a beautiful Spring

— Mark Bourdon


la Primavera

Hope blooming like the tulips

mind follows the breeze

— Rudy J. Miera


Too little are words;

swallowed in the symphony

of a banjo string

— R.A. Hahn


can we be like

river waters laughing

no matter what

— Cynthia West
