At that Moment by Suzanne Kamata

At that Moment by Suzanne Kamata

I was in the schoolyard singing the Student Brigade song when a B-29 flew overhead. A verse appeared in my mind: Madness reigned on the the bloody battleground of Saipan. After the flash silence the city, destroyed transformed into ruins. Next thing I knew I was sitting in a field barefoot gazing at clouds of […]

Global Warming by Mali Warshofsky

Global Warming by Mali Warshofsky

Crocuses soak in sudden sun Daffodils peek as if spring has come. Fall leaves, curled like parched lips Complaining they dropped too soon. Northern hemisphere turned south, Sunny chaos in December. Christmas on the beach Night stars glow festive Moon-lit dunes sing carols. Warm waters race ashore Waves swirl aimless sand-grains, Flatten sand, fill trenches […]

Wild Deer and Rivers by Jan B. Parker

Wild Deer and Rivers by Jan B. Parker

I go to the hills of North Carolina to get away from city life and experience a lesser spinning of the world. I leave the fast-paced blur of town and enter a hodge-podge collage of different looking people and clean smelling air with a fraction of the suburb’s noise. At the cabin on the river, […]

Always remember to use the good china my friend told me right after she lost everything in the fire. But to me saving certain memories is like drowning, like being pulled down into a dark ocean, unable to grab the murky shapes I barely recognize. My mother’s patterned plates. Her silver serving spoons, her flowered […]

New Way to the River by Sylvia Freeman

New Way to the River by Sylvia Freeman

Almost there, storm-toppled trees, jumble of branches, brambles, web of leaves and vines stand between me and river’s roar. So many years since my children climbed these trees, found dragonflies in the water, built stone villages, skimmed rocks all the way to the other bank. I can see them still under the colors of fall, […]

What the Water Knows by Isabel Taylor

What the Water Knows by Isabel Taylor

I’m heading down a road I’ve never known before Nothing looks familiar, and I’m following the signs I’m trusting them to take me where I’m meant to be It’s getting late and I’ve seen so many miles I’m listening to the rhythm on a bridge that’s long and wide A river flows beneath me stretching […]
