under the plum tree

wild onions start to confess

white blossoms don’t cry

— Jan Gross


over new grass

a sphere with lungs

— Christopher Watson

calm as morticians

vultures in the morning sky

job security

— Jeff Hollander

Rio for once Grande

what can I sacrifice for

your return next spring

— Sabine Schulze-Steele

grass holds blue fragments

Robin hatched from its safe shell

fractures bringing life

— JD Eames

The screen is blank

Will the photo load today?

There she is, my child

— Marc Wortsman

a skip of fresh snow

sits on last year’s chamisa

mocking the old, old gold

— Johnnie Prather
