footprints in the sand
ebb in the ocean

broken branches
a cascade of blossom
fall in the breeze

harvest moon
seaweed on the shore
cliffs fall in the sea

Going In | A Poem by Marlena Nicole Guzman

That little room in the corner,
That little room where they hold your hand but move so quickly,
every time I enter a flush of fear runs into what I know is coming,
Swift,
It’s fast,
I cannot complain about their brevity,
they’re good and practiced but now it is my turn again,
again and again,
in and then done!
I always wake with the dizzy confusion but standing comfort that for
today…it is done,
what had brought me to this?
Electric shock for my mind but devastating trauma to my soul,
Until tomorrow then

Extra Effort | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Unending flow of information –
Hyper-stimulation.
Neurons firing chaotically,
Entertainment blather,
The superficial supersedes.

Like the easy stuff,
Eschew deeper meaning
Requiring extra effort –
Critical thinking,
Reflection.

The odd child,
It languishes alone,
Brushed aside, unstudied,
Ignored, but no less
Important, valuable.

Wave of Perfume | A Poem by G.S. Katz

My dog is sniffing pee from a male dog
Left on the side of a tree on my street
Patiently I wait for for the activity to conclude
When she walks by leaving behind a trail of perfume

It doesn’t matter who she is
Though urban history tells me
The lovelier the scent, the prettier the wearer
Though some might challenge that theory in part

Wordy as this has been in my first two stanzas
Nothing pleases a man more than a wave of perfume
In the early morning of a crisp autumn day
Scented air gives this dog all the promise and wonder
of the journey ahead

I Wonder… | A Poem by Anuradha Fonseka

When it rains with thunder
I wonder if he ever remembers
The little girl hidden in his warmth
If he ever remembers that she was afraid of thunder
If he ever remembers she used to feel safe with him
May be he does not, for now she is replaced with another
A prettier one from a prettier mother
Yet he does not know in the girl’s life
He is not replaced (And will never be)
When it rains with thunder
She has nowhere to hide
She’ll be brave and sigh
