Our Grandmothers
by Maya Angelou

She lay, skin down in the moist dirt,
the canebrake rustling
with the whispers of leaves, and
loud longing of hounds and
the ransack of hunters crackling the near
branches.

She muttered, lifting her head a nod toward
freedom,
I shall not, I shall not be moved.

Holding Onto Grandpa’s Hand
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

What’s it like to have a grandpa…
To know from where you came…
He’ll teach you about your history…
Give you his family name…

He’ll teach you to seek cover…
When there’s a storm in the air…
He’ll help you understand…
That justice isn’t always fair…

Elegy: Walking the Line
by Edgar Bowers

Every month or so, Sundays, we walked the line,
The limit and the boundary. Past the sweet gum
Superb above the cabin, along the wall—
Stones gathered from the level field nearby
When first we cleared it. (Angry bumblebees
Stung the two mules. They kicked. Thirteen, I ran.)
And then the field: thread-leaf maple, deciduous
Magnolia, hybrid broom, and, further down,
In light shade, one Franklinia Alatamaha
In solstice bloom, all white, most graciously.

New Reality
by Nicholas Kolaric

I am tired,
A life has expired
A person who I deeply admired.
The future that was selected
Came when I least expected.
I don't know what tonight will be,
Little did I know that she would be free.

The sound of a rattling diesel engine
did catch my attention - I knew that machine wasn't beeping.

I am an Angel
by Maeverik Foxwood

My Grandmother said so.

She Also said that I wouldn't achieve my true form until
The Apocalypse,

at which point in time,

I, an Angel, would help usher in the era of
The Extinction of Man.

unrequited love
by jody kathleen

Unrequited Love
Prophetic-some may say
Like mother like daughter
They both stray
From the earth to present homes
Where are you now?
Some may know
The seagulls call aong the
Lost coast while I long
To be guided home

It’s Time To Smile
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

I’m a Covid child...
Recognize my smile...
You’ve never seen my face...
It’s been covered for a while...

My eyes dart left...
And then to the right...
My eyes are wide open...
And full of fright...

My Grandma
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Grandma finally left
the house today...
We were all very concerned
needless to say...

She had stayed in her room
for many years...
Ever since Elvis died
she had shed many tears...
