poets!... Mona Bedi, Rochelle S. Cohen, Linda Amos, Cathy Porter, Nancy L. Dahl, James B. Peters, t. kilgore splake, John McDonald, and Joseph Campbell!...

        poet Mona Bedi, Delhi, India...

      on a restaurant napkin first love letter

   supper time

   we fuss over the          local fair 

   new guest              squeals of laughter

                           from the ferris wheel

  poet Rochelle S. Cohen, Marlton, New Jersey...

   Cat logistician

   Plots in Situation Room

   Feline agendas             


                   It's in your mind's Brigadoon

                   Where dreams awaken

         Ipanema beach

         Girl sways to ocean's rhythm

         Promise of a song

     poet Linda Amos, York Pennsylvania...

       Fog burned off early

    Making this the beginning

        Of a beautiful day

                      On a clear warm day

                    I harken back to my youth     

                     And I go out and play

    poet Cathy Porter, Omaha, Nebraska...

   Coffe brewing
   One cup                  Getting older
   Missing the other        Every song
                              Becomes your song

           skies for every moment
           cloud or sun
           walk slow
           take time to scratch the surface
           inhale the scent
           taste salt
           from every ocean

     poet Nancy L. Dahl, Ypsilanti, Michigan...

     white paper and pen
     just waiting             poetry words
     for a song               dancing
                                on paper
                choose peace
                best outcome 
                for everything

 poet James B. Peters, Cottontown, Tennessee...

     Haiku poem
     Seen in print         Nature dresses
     Enough reward      All her creatures
                            To the environment
              The beauty
              Of a snowflake
              To the intricateness
              Of the mind

   poet t. kilgore splake, Calumet Michigan...

   poems rising in air
  turning and spinning 
words landing everywhere
                            han shan's ghost
                     drifting down mountain path
                         joining poet in dream

              below zero morning
              eagle lazily soaring
              taste of snow in air

 poet John McDonald, Edinburgh, Scotland...
from John's latest poetry book

nicht veesitors -       night visitors-
  the seller jeegsaw     the silver jigsaw
o snail steids          of snail tracks

burdsang -      birdsong -
nivver       never
a wrang note       a wrong note

suddentlie    suddenly
the AH! mament -     the AH! moment -
gean flourish      cherry blossom
