small child
orphaned by a car crash
glass treasure
on a tilting shelf

space Jan Foster - Australia
spacer brush

along the river bank
the fragrant canes
evoking those lost
summers of childhood

space Gavin Austin - Australia
spacer brush

    cloud burst
how thunder reminds me
of father's fists
the sudden violent clap
that hurts the ears

space Tracy Davidson - UK
spacer brush

scuttling under
canvas, tin or tile
until the tempest fades
how like my star sign
I have become

space Margaret Conley - Australia
spacer brush

  getting lost
deeper and deeper
in the fog
she finds her bearings
in her husband's face

space Shrikaanth Krishnamurthy - UK
spacer brush

    gunmetal sky
and chain link stars
this love
is the grinding of bones
beneath flesh

space Jennifer Thompson - USA
spacer brush
