MARCH 1999

 

 
 

look, cat,
your new neighbours moving in:
they have a dog!

 

Gilles Fabre

 

 

 

Broken man
all day long
splitting oak

 

 

Desolation -
grateful
for my wife's boot prints

 

Ken Jones

 

 

 

Leafless tree
in the fold of a hill
leans into sunset

 

 

From a bare cupboard
a few noodles, the north wind
a little warmer

 

Jim Norton

 

 

 

show me,
skinny bird in the nippy wind,
how to face winter

 

Gilles Fabre

 

 

 

Winter fog
over the river
moving with it

 

Maeve O'Sullivan

 

 

 

Through the bus window
I opened to hail a friend
this year's first snow

 

Gilles Fabre

 

 

 

Dismasted pines
their riven branches
point in all directions

 

Ken Jones

 

 

 

gulls on a beached trawler
all but one
turned to the sea

 

 

this street cat
I sometimes feed:
in his mouth a baby bird

 

Gilles Fabre
