assistant editor Kitty Kali: "Mister Editor, we need a new poetry post! Right now! With treats for everyone!"...
Thank you, Kali! Let's begin with poet Dennis Rhodes, Naples, Florida...
There is no reason
to stop and smell the roses--
I've brought them to you!poet Art Elser, Denver, Colorado...
a tiny ant searches crows cavort
the bathroom floor in a cold west wind
while I shiver
poet Linda Amos, York, Pennsylvania...
a ghost of a moon
sailed by on a slip of silver
a flimsy raft for moonbeams
searching for ghosts
coyotes and mountain lions
prowl these sacred hills
poet Julie A. Dickson, Exeter, New Hampshire...
Even behind closed eyes
I can still see the full moon,
etched on my retinas, beneath
my eyelids like indelible
marker on a whiteboard.
poet t. kilgore splake, Calumet, Michigan...
