Elk Heart Walking, poets Michael Conner, Peggy Dugan French, Dennis Rhodes, Caroline N Simpson and! Don Wentworth!

                                                                                              blue-velvet twilight
                                                      the evening star
                                                      nestled in thereness
poet Michael Conner


                             thumb in your back pocket
                             arm draped over my shoulder
                                                 poet Peggy Dugan French

Venice Prayer

Why do I crave the fog,
a softened silhouette?
Wrap me like a Russian nesting doll
in layers of mist that soak and sink:
immerse me in damp whispers
and blur my outline into thick emerald lagoon,
bright, crisp stars twinkling above. 
                                             poet Caroline N Simpson

                          Issa's Answer
                   The whole world sloughs off
                   it's skin - do you have a question
                   for Mr. Snake?
                                            poet don Wentworth

                                     Poor little haiku.
                                     Seventeen sweet syllables
                                     with nothing to say.
                                             poet Dennis Rhodes

see you in the next bear creek haiku, and/or, perhaps, a future bear creek post... better yet, upon a Colorado mountain, beside a river among aspen, mountain mahogany, big bluestem, pasque and columbine, listening to bull elk bugle as they slowly wade through the clear, cold glacial current...
see you in a moment
