Striped plastic bag
tumbles down the cold wet street:
good morning Monday!


Philip Keogh




late night girl
at the cold morning bus stop
in her only blouse and skirt


Helen Robinson




First winter Redwing
in the garden ~ the shortest day
somehow seems so long


Bill Wyatt




"Over mountains
mountains" ~
first snow


Joe McFadden




winter jay
wearing the spotted feather
my dead child gave me


Helen Robinson




the firefly's tickle
as I open my fist
the glow




joining the river
each stream
its own song


Nasira Alma




Hours till dawn:
in the hospital grounds
for whom does that blackbird
sing so sweetly?


Jim Norton
