mountain retreat —
a layer of dust
on all the canned goods

Karen Cesar

 

green-black sheen
of a rooster’s tail feathers
my neighbor’s new car

Laura Garrison

 

closing light
the whistles of siskins
in the fringes of the wood

John Barlow

 

dead end street
bougainvillea overflows
the chain link fence

Yu Chang

 

broken screen —
the house finch
looks in

George Dorsty

 

 
 

at the entrance
to the whistle-pig’s burrow
mountain bluebells

Karen Cesar

through the kissing gate . . .

a wire fence stretches
to nowhere

Emma Dalloway

the dust of sparrows
blown by the wind
