Pulse  by Jason Sturner       

The morning is cool, quiet,
set perfectly in place
and her eyes are filled with it.
She kneels down,
watches bees
bend the silky petals
of her favorite flower.

Purely Platonic   by Paul Curtis    

I loved Sally a lot though just platonic
You might even say we were symbiotic
Friendship stemming from times historic
Always together like something comic
Our thoughts and desires were esoteric
Finding partners was the normal topic

Queen Of The Forest  by Theresa Newbill  

When she was my baby in curls,
a single stroke of her hand examined
my face, with smiles, spit ups and
ugh-ugh sounds, almost in the same
breath.
My ear has retreated into the murmurs
of childhood where painting a pattern of
birds and mythical bunnies becomes an
adventure. None of the colors match the
brush of skin against cheek.

Red Ribbons  by Alison Pearce    

Red ribbons in your hair
Edged with gold lace trim
Trailed behind you on the summer breeze
As I watched you dance across the fields
Amongst the wildflowers, your feet flowed
In rhythm with the music of the wind
The vision of your red dress twirling
A picture of loveliness, on my mind imprinted

Solitary Sonnet  by Margaret Dakin

Thank You Skinhead Girl  by Sharon Woodward  Read Reviews 

Dandy Livingstone on my MP3 player, sing out to me "a message to you"
Once a bus journey obsessing of a Crombie coat, now concerned of a presentation 
DM boots replaced with a set of heels, a businesswoman in a business suit 
Thank you Skinhead Girl, you were such a pearl amongst a row of many
Looking after me in my dark teen years, supporting me through my many fears

The Key to a Woman's Heart is Within the Man  by Jason Sturner       

Soundless, he crashed along her walls.
Fell like a bruised rock, died shivering in the clover.
She stirred, asleep: an oblivious, silent orchestra.
Autumn leaves and music entered his death ó
inner seasons began to change.
The stars shined like a million candles held by darkness.
His cadaver eyes were illuminated, lit by the crescent moon.
His body twitched: the soul threw the Reaper in chains.
By morning he was breathing, somehow stronger ó
built less of stone, more of dream.

The Rays of a Single Joy  by J. J. Deur   

As in a confession Ė the whole day on my knees
not talking to the priest, but cutting the lumber for
the basement ceiling Ė
making a wooden bed/frame for the sheets of the sheetrock
which will hang in the air as an outstretched white
blanket in the pool of the fluorescent flickering lights,
becoming the long and wide, perfectly flat, basement ceiling;
and staying there, looking down  from this moment on to, maybe,

one hundred years away?

The Room  by Margaret Dakin   Speaker broadcasting Showcased Talent

Unpredictable  by Theresa Newbill   

The water taxi docks on the pier in New York.
We look around into the tourist faces, grateful
at not needing a cultural passport. One thing
learned from being native, is that the pursuit of
happiness occurs in variety, in distinction, that
makes our hearts flutter with vibrant colors.

Valentine's Day  by Erik Estabrook    

On Valentines Day of all days, it was a day most dreaded by her.
She was fit, cute, smart but love, for her, never seemed to start.
She had friends, best friends, acquaintances, and occasional stalkers.
She had love pressed close to her heart; this love was a zest for life,
not the hugging, kissing, wooing dance that we know as romance.

Woman!  by Ray Malus    Speaker broadcasting Showcased Talent  

Oh Woman! Why, for even just one hour,
Would you pursue the vanities of man?
Forsaking, in that foolish quest, your power,
Forgetting you were formed a fertile flower,
The bud of loveliness, since time began.
For men can only conquer and dismember,
Erect tall towers empty, dark, and chilled.
And write small verses no one will remember,

And I've been wounded too

Of loves which made us blue
