Shadow play

We are a work in progress
a cobbled collage, a dance of debris
reclaimed remnants of the past, and yet
see how the light casts our beauty.

Michelle Granville is finally ready to consider trying.

Mimesis

In
the branches

of a darkening
tree,

an evening bird
catches

the light of
its own shadow

Bequeaths

When
in your hands,

even
an autumn’s leaf

comes
to grow a sieve of

light.

Monica Flegg

Four Letter Word Beginning With P

It’s end of the year
chaos plus prom
season, so I
know I’m not
the only parent
so tired
I can’t even
make
a left
turn.

Monica Flegg walks dogs of various breeds, reads poetry of all creeds, and generally has a lot of fun.

Roy Dorman

Waiting Just a Little

The porch light is on,
and the key is still under
the potted geranium
in the corner,
but I no longer sleep
on the couch
waiting for you.

Roy Dorman would like to have one of his One Sentence Poems picked up by a Hollywood producer, perhaps Steven Spielberg, and have it made into a very short full-length motion picture.
