fallen apples
the constellation of
the gardener

laughter
passing the harbour bar
just for today

Your story happens
the way water writes itself
into its natural space.

rain of lead
leaves silent as the dead
American fall

dryads
cut their hair
leaf-fall

In a week
of airstrikes
and shootings
people complain
about the price of carrier bags.

trying to impress
reciting basho for her
a frog in my throat

@lordfanny1723

was it you?
or just the
sheer curtain
breathing…
a taste of salt
a fleeting shadow
where none
should be

@Solasea19

autumn sun
a gull passes on my left
its shadow on my right

death poem …
my
pen
drifts
off
the
margin

@DreamsOfTaos

two autumn leaves
brushing against each other
her folded hands

@poemblaze

autumn days
the weight of my life’s
unpicked apples

Why do I write?
Because poetry is a rebuke
to the silence of the grave.

she takes
a deep breath
of sunrise

she calls me;
the sea taunting
my lost dreams

memories
the moonrises and moonsets
of my life

a quiet moment
trying to get the me out of me
falling leaves

@nightslostsoul

I thought it was forever

women with baskets
in the morning village

the old always old
and I a laughing child
perpetually

@plantingtheoar

leaf by leaf
the neighbors
reveal themselves

@heyjude714

Lingering
mid-air —
a solitary
leaf —
I try to
catch my
breath.

@TylerPedersen83

The mute child
took her by the hand
and led her
through the crystal mountains
strewn with dead men’s bones

@KrisLindbeck

*

suddenly,
pierced underfoot,
the last of three children
became
an angel

@ArtandThoughts

Backs to the low sun, a crow on every fence post
