poet Steve Ausherman
                       Albuquerque, New Mexico

           He, the Poet Laureate of paupers
              rummages through the dumpster
                           in lyrical majesty.


   Chalk drawings upon asphalt.
      Children scribbling away 
                               fears.


                      Tumbler of scotch.
                        So many reasons
                                       why.


 poet Bijoy Kumar Dubey
                         West Bengal, India

    In search of the Greater Self,
    Where have I reached,
    Where have I gone to?
    The Greater Self, the Greater Self,
    In search of the Greater Self,
    Where have I really?

    I want to catch, catch the fireflies,
    Fireflies
    Glowing,
    Glowing and glimmering
    With the bedazzled, bespangled
    Blinking light.


                                    artist Ed Markowski


poet Judith Partin-Nielsen                                artist Paula Yup
                   Longmont, Colorado

Der Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider)

Blues, oh so blue
bluesman, Blues Brothers
Blessed Virgin blue -
blue wave, blue
dolphin riding - blue -
blue, Stevie Ray blue
quitar and blow that sax
jazz man bluesman,
blue, blue bluer than
that cold blue night
blue moon, blue Miles
blowing that blue Bitches
Brew, Kind of Blue, blue
rain, Blue Note - blue trumpet
blowing blue, blue
and so gone, gone and
blue blown blues away


    t. kilgore splake
                      Calumet, Michigan

floating on creek currents

poet's creative bloodline


            night alone in desert

       watching dark rocks come alive

           universe belongs to you


                                       
Patricia Carragon
                Brooklyn, New York

CATKU

inside an old box
the calico seeks shelter
December snowstorm                    
                                       
when the lights go out              
cries from the cat                          Frosty: "CATKU!  Happy mews!"
take over the apartment                        Tama, "But, calico..."

   the mischievous cat
   curls up on the windowsill              early morning meows
   plans her next attack                     outside the bedroom door
                                                 cat adoption blues











                         poet r. soos   Joshua Tree, California

            wide                                     full moon

            the day overhead                       cleans this desert sand
            fills each silence forever              coyote and owls silent
            for a night of stars                     cholla sings solo

    lovers                                       evening

    kettledrum desert                         the birds fly quiet
    announcing dreams and instinct        overhead toward the sunset
    eat the wind and rain                    I fall in tonight


                     poet Diane Webster   Delta, Colorado

                                                           SOCCER FIELD

               Two crows land
               on the soccer goal
               and caw! caw! caw!
               as children take
               the ball
               and go home.
                                                                       

and, noble assistant editors, we'll go home, too-
treats are waiting for us!
