Gypsy by Kim Werfel

— While visiting my frame shop on Halloween, I snapped a photo of one of the costumed employees and painted her pastel portrait.

Two Poems by Genevieve Guedra

Two Poems by Genevieve Guedra

Concord matter-made, transient and finite, artificially arboring a postural smile ; yet sketching the profile of a limitless, fragmented self by tracing  outlines in the saturated tones of a red-moon-fullness scarlet nutshell, soon delivering fresh wholeness, strongly empowering the ever denied humdrum of universal existence; beneath the rubble, onsetting a process no longer threatened by ticking time ; combined, at […]

Breaking by Betty Stanton

Breaking by Betty Stanton

It happens early in the morning when you leave hours before I have expected you to, when you remember you are late for work or for a meeting or to call your wife, and I find myself downtown keeping pace with ghosts of old lovers, coming at me dressed in fraternity tee-shirts and running shoes. […]

Another Growing Season Done by Diane Z. DeBella

Another Growing Season Done by Diane Z. DeBella

(written for Matthew Shepard) A weathered fence stands in a meadow of yellowing grasses– a silhouette in the orange glow of autumn’s setting sun. Another growing season done. A pastoral scene stained red with the blood of another whose growing season is too soon done. The coming snow will cover the desecrated spot in a […]

Our Spirit Stands by Glenis Redmond

Our Spirit Stands by Glenis Redmond

Tears of disillusion have always fallen from our black eyes.
 Our Ancestors have carried burdens like boulders,
 raised children in the strange light 
of crosses burning in their yards. Our tired trek has not always been written in books,
but we sing, dance and write poems
on how we have proceeded one heavy step after another.
 Now, […]
