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?
