Nerisha Kemraj

Dusky sun glowing,

Mountains await chilly night

Fire burning bright

***

Michael Cottle

I await for you
In the early pouring rain
Sunshine never came

***

Wes Choc
Eyes cannot fathom

What a broken heart finds missed

Unless there are tears.

***

Maureen Larter

Sitting and waiting

Air clear, fire warm, clouds forming

Moon lighting my way

***

M. Henderson

cold night–warm hands wait
where the borderline divides
the elements’ edge.

        ***

Mamie Willoughby Pound

drowsing daffodils
grass-green lizard pink with love
dandelion suns
