'doing different these days': Ed Markowski, Brendan McBreen, Toma Rosen, Carl Mayfield, and, info


'doing different these days'
  poetic image - Ed Markowski






wishing on a black hole

before the ender of time
finds us
wishing we had more

before all dust
is returned
to its singular source

let us add
a few splashes of color
to the unfinishable canvas
of understanding

                   pacific  washington 







                            

                     a river
                            arrives

                        in a dream

                        of un-kept 
                                time                                                              
               
                        faith 
                                in order
                                in reason

                        two deer

                        clash antlers
      
                                a doe 
       
                                grazes

                        I am
                                she sings

                        tail
                                twitches

sudden summer rain
snails
scurry their small scurry
  across the walk
searching ground
  for drier meditation


thin 
  wine dark fingers
dogwood stretching
  up through snow


pale meadow hair
tangled with the first
of winter's 
   wind driven snow
                                             sapphire-blue sparks
                                             glint through
                                             gray-forest scrim

                                             morning's camp jays




assistant editor the froster states:

ok, alright, Frost -


poem by Carl Mayfield
          rio rancho  new mexico. . .


                        A sleeping cat
                        Catches 
                        No mice.
                        Unwritten words
                        Are soon lost.
