Backtracking to yesterday- on April 01, 2021

Slow White Rain by Larry Mawby

slow white rain

a morning of slow white rain

falling from mottled

grey black skies

making slick shiny

pavements tree bark & grass this sunday

of late march

slowly washing

the old cherry lugs

we put out in the yard yesterday cleaning them

of the mice droppings

left from decades in the

barn unused now destined

for the historical society

to display a bit of

local past our fathers

slow white rain falling

upon this place


Melting Snow by Cherry K Kowitz

The snow melts from my yard like an old friend saying goodbye.

Uncovering the past, the mottled leaves and broken grass.

The bits of green garden hose chewed up and left in the yard to be forgotten over winter.

It’s hard to think about all the layers in ones life.

Every season sandwiched between the folds of our memories.

Soon the grass will grow tall and cover all the scars left behind over the years.

Still grass never grows tall enough to disguise the scars on a heart.

Like deep ravines running through an ancient valley.

You can see the pathways of a lifetime flowing over a beings face.

Time dragging lines deeper and deeper.

Until the lines on a face resemble mountains

And the breath of a being becomes the ocean tide.


Verbiage/ Distillation Poem #01 by Mimi DiFrancesca

Without Him by Silvia Smoglian Gans

There’s a crack in her heart

Where his blood used to flow

It all happened so fast

How could she possibly know?

Without his life force

Coursing through her soul

All she’s left with

Are their memories to console.
