Featuring one guest author per month
  • deep in the hills the sharp peak of a steeple
  • cool night the runner’s out-breath as she passes me
  • nowhere I need to be a cabbage moth flits among the daylilies
  • kettle pond the cold spots our feet pass through
  • noontime heat fingerlings swim in and out of a light shaft
  • late-summer quiet cattails starting to shred
  • late-summer dusk the fiddler ends with a waltz
  • soft night breeze . . . other people’s porch lights then ours
  • teaching my daughter Mom’s recipe the slow pour of molasses
  • country graveyard the oldest stones under tall pines
