Noble assistant editor's Kitty Kali and Frosty, their love of poetry, mewwwing, "Let's do it!"

poet Peggy Dugan French, Cardiff, California...
         For You. . .

         The written word

         a poem
         a list
         a letter
         a thank you
         an invitation
         an offer
         an apology
         a wish
         a sorrow
         a hope
         a dream

     Through the years
         the thread that binds us
         our love song

poem from Julie A. Dickson's two kitties, Cam and Jojo!...
             mouse shivers
             pops through crack to warm up
             until cat awakes

      poet Cathy Porter, Omaha, Nebraska...

               Pink sunset
               A hard act to follow
               Even for the stars

   poet Michael Riedell, Ukiah, California...
       our two
       pieces of pie--           
       and the whole moon

                         kindly the girl
                         explains what the old
                         woman can't read  

    poet Sarah Mahina Calvello, San Francisco, California...

     Cheese with crackers
     Peaches and nostalgia
     Letting days go by

                          That dress
                          Worn in December
                          Magic moment
           The dress pattern is sunflowers
           Welcoming spring

poet Dennis Rhodes, Naples, Florida...

             My dog licks my face.
             His breath is terrible but
             no one loves me more.

     poet Pawel Markiewicz, Bielsk Podlaski, Poland...

  starlit starry night
 the sunny philosophy   
of some moony crows  
                           moony winter-end
                      crows seeing alluring moon
                          - bewitchment begun

         crows on pretty cables
     prettier - dearer - enchantment
          the prettiest spring fog

     poet Judith Partin-Nielsen, Longmont, Colorado...

things unfold
as they do             coulda, woulda, shoulda
and even in that        ringa, dinga, clinga   
there is                          la madre
a special beauty


 see you in a moment...
