AUGUST 1996

 



stars fill the hatchway
swaying
to the smell of melon


George Marsh




pedalling wildly
i struggle into the wind
with summer's first swifts


Martin Lucas




mosquito
with swollen belly -
blood kin, he and I


Nasira Alma




still chirping
as a long, hot day ends -
churchyard sparrows


Jim Norton




at low tide
listening to the lovely mud
puckering


George Marsh




just to feel warm earth
i pull potatoes
long after dark


LeRoy Gorman




Mountain wind
through my ribcage
already


Ken Jones




sunset -
the wild swan crying again
to his dead mate


Nasira Alma




Elder-flowers
by my grandparents' grave
with empty hands


Jim Norton




left up after cleaning eaves
the ladder
the stars


LeRoy Gorman




blind man
smiling
at his wife


Nasira Alma
