one white tulip
in a blaze of color –
though alone
its stem
never wavers

  the exile
in her prison cell
scratching poems
on a bar of soap …
bubbles rise to the moon

space Jenny Ward Angyal - USA

    as if to remind me
that the world can still
surprise me
my poems came back
as a song

no difference now
than when I was twenty –
put on the coffee,
sit by a quiet window
and write things down

space Roger Jones - USA

  eleven years
he never did understand
I still don't write about him
even when it rains

space Els van Leeuwen - Australia

    my bed
crowded with ghosts
one tanka
after another
making love in it
