NOVEMBER 1996

 


Strong wind through the park
in the calmest of places
leaves shudder ~ fall


Philip Keogh




gone green
the copper nameplate
on a leafless tree


LeRoy Gorman




an autumn walk
from the smell of toast
to where crows bark


George Marsh




blue heron
on a fence post ~
flood water rising


Nasira Alma




In damp smelly clothes
Swearing blind at passing cars
Somebody's father


Sean O'Connor




Wasp in my beer ~ now
that you are dead I return
you to the garden




Cricket in my bedroom ~
is that my heart ticking away
in the night?




Evening sunset ~
dandelion seeds tumbling
over fresh cut fields


Bill Wyatt




birds sing
just birds,
singing


George Marsh




The thief
having fingered my Buddha
settled for cold cash


Jim Norton
