from nature’s seed
clear cut forests
from our insatiable greed
— Lawrence H. Geller
I was low this morning
Until I cooked my eggs
With tomato and fresh basil
And a little parmesan.
And I made an espresso
With just the right amount
— Barbara Hoekje
Come hither calls the moon
With its mournful lunar face
There’s no one else out tonight
No other soul to see my light
Just you and I and the deep dark sky
I’ll lead you from your inner maze
As I’ve done for those before
Who’ve sat with me at heaven’s door.
— Kirstie Jones
