the Moon


 speaks to the soul


     ~Keith A. Simmons

  the rose in the sunlight


         its shadow


                                                she’s just a termite 


                                                     she’s the queen


 daddylonglegs in winter

       cling to the wall

              this close


-Cliff Bleidner

Text Box: time in my pocket
            now lost

Monty ~ a rescued Greyhound,

addicted to food and affection.

Stately and of gentle soul, he is missed.

build a home
that no one can take
the pure heart


  -- Mankh (Walter E. Harris III)

   neither the rosebush
   nor blue sky cheer me today,
   but the bird's song...


first cold night--
the furnace comes on,
and on, and on


-- Mankh (Walter E. Harris III)
