rumors of war
from the other side
of the world
a robin pins an intruder
to the ground

  torch songs
from my parents’ youth
a war overseas
and neither one
here to remember

    bagpipes skirl
from the castle wall
in the twilight
arousing the night sky
waking the banshee

flag waving
and trombone parades
the silence
of unclaimed bones
and poppy fields

space Pris Campbell - USA

  it may never
become a memory
but for today
the way her breath
turns the pinwheel

space Terri French - USA

    from wind
came music,
and to wind
music returned,
that day in March
