Selected Poems, First Quarter, 2014

Dear Friends, Here are the Selected Poems of the First Quarter of 2014. We had many fine poems submitted this quarter, and we have selected eleven of them. We begin with the very shortest - haiku, or haiku-like in their brevity. Thank you so much to everyone who submitted!

Mindfulness of Tea

For water to boil
I must
turn on the kettle.

--Teri Sivilli

Warm midnight
A winter with no rain
Sleep as well proves elusive

--David Clark

Haiku # 30

I have watched my life
pass with interest -- not quite
believing it's real

--Wulf Losee

Haiku #41

my guest has departed
my little house is smaller
without her

--Wulf Losee
