naia

Matt Morden

barely dawn–
the cat’s slow progress
toward the kitchen

Barry George

 

dusty temple yard–
Buddha’s sandstone face
worn away

Stanford Forrester

 

fallen leaves
the first words of the letter
“I regret . . .”

J. B. Leong

 

nearly dusk
the playground astir
with dragonflies

John W. Wisdom

 

first autumn rain–
dust on the umbrella plant
interrupted

naia

 

 
 

morning cool . . .
silhouettes of the faithful
murmuring chants

Kuniharu Shimizu

 

war again . . .
     the starlings
              fly south

Doris Thurston

 

autumn leaves
a cowslip blooms
out of time

Celia Crook

 

fallen nest
turning back the clock
one hour
Elizabeth Moura

 

a barrow of windfalls–
emptying out
apple-scented rain

Matt Morden
