a heron
takes its long shadow inland
at sunset
the search for a drowned man

  a rose
dipped in liquid nitrogen
how fragile
the heart that suddenly fails
the wife suddenly widowed

space Maxianne Berger - Canada

beneath the roses
these questions:
are you not more than ash
am i not more than rain

space Debbie Strange - Canada

we take one last measure
on the doorjamb –
she’s lost two inches
since my father died

space Sally Biggar - USA

  an owl
asks me who I am
every night
mother repeats
the same question

space Debbie Strange - Canada

    a night like this
can only fall short
on promises
a pale-faced moon
buries itself in cloud
