Autumn 2014 haiku chain by Patricia K.

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

While I’ll take life in any season, the transition from summer to fall is bumpy for me. This year, the melancholy I often feel during these pre-winter months has been accented by various family crises. Still, as the song goes, How can I keep from singing?

The Trees in River Country by Sarah Dunster

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

The trees in river country know the wind, and how to bend  in winter blasts. They hold snow and take the water. They change color— as the leaves of maples turn, so too a sister to her brother. There are deep roots in a certain field, grown up on our name past—fed by ashes of […]

Field Notes #13 : Spider in the hand of a goodly snow

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Polar fleece. One of the best.  Inventions. Ever. My admiration for this virtuous fabric prompted me to do a bit of research on it. On Wikipedia, I came across this: “Aaron Feuerstein [inventor] intentionally declined to patent polar fleece, allowing the material to be produced cheaply and widely by many vendors, leading to the material’s […]

Goat Paths by Patricia Karamesines

Monday, July 15th, 2013

We are the Day Society: See how we skirt surefooted as goats the Crevasse of Desire. God is in the well-placed step that bears us above Death, while Beauty weeps for us beyond the goat paths.   By day, the way is clear, so complete, the ground floor and ceiling blue. We see where we […]

One Leg Up by A. J. Huffman

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Flamingos frolic in the surfless still of the sea side morning’s pastoral.  Limbs and feathers paint a fantastical fan, this stretching before the sun. The water dopples, dolloped with pink reflections.  A mirror ed magic, reflexive of another dimension.  Alien in pastel tones of aggressive softness, they adamantly defend their rights to this dance. _____________________________________________________________________ […]

Memoirs Written in Rain by A. J. Huffman

Monday, June 10th, 2013

The lavender sky turns.  Soundless. Its silvered breath falls, sliding slowly over veined silk. The tiny bud ruptures.  Bending backwards (in time) it beads the ground with miniscule reflections, iridescent images bursting the same ideal: a perfect mirror of every dawn’s bloom. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ A.J. Huffman is a poet and freelance writer in Daytona Beach, Florida.  […]
