poet Omar Khayyám (1048-1131)...
Here with a little Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse--and Thou
Beside me Singing in the Wilderness--
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!
poet Peggy Dugan French, Cardiff, California...
so does love
candle glowing in the corner
music swirling about
the evening mood shifts
poet Joe Sebastian, Bangalore, India...
I side-step singing songs
the many moons around a bonfire
sparks in the air
I trace carvings on carvings
on my name on desk
poet Sarah Mahina Calvello,
San Francisco, California...
Feeling grateful and seen
On a busy street
poet Ram Chandran, Madurai, India...
her perfume walking stick-
enters first old man measures
depth of puddles
poet t. kilgore splake, Calumet, Michigan...
surrendering to flowing currents
learning wilderness wisdom
poet becoming free
thumb in the air
city limits sign
wondering what's next
poet John Parsons, East Sussex, United Kingdom...
