first rain of spring . . .
all the windows open
he plays Chopin

Sarah Alexander


butchering done—
     fresh straw
          forked into the corner

Michael Mcclintock


The old crayon box—
the points still blunt
from rainbow drawings

Gayle Guillory


about to snow . . .
a white hawk
circles a dark sky

Robert Mainone


funeral lunch
a faint taste of dirt
still on the radish

Del Doughty


snow drifts
even with his cane
her grave is too far

Kristin Boryca


winter evening
     our kids interrupt
          our vasectomy talk
