Gone Fishin'
by Delmar Pepper

I've finished life's chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I've been invited to the fishin' hole.

Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don't worry, or feel sad for me,
I'm fishin' with the Master of the sea.

He sat in a wheeled chair, waiting for dark,
And shivered in his ghastly suit of grey,
Legless, sewn short at elbow. Through the park
Voices of boys rang saddening like a hymn,
Voices of play and pleasure after day,
Till gathering sleep had mothered them from him.

About this time Town used to swing so gay
When glow-lamps budded in the light blue trees,
And girls glanced lovelier as the air grew dim,-

A Red Palm
by Gary Soto

You're in this dream of cotton plants.
You raise a hoe, swing, and the first weeds
Fall with a sigh. You take another step,
Chop, and the sigh comes again,
Until you yourself are breathing that way
With each step, a sigh that will follow you into town.

That's hours later. The sun is a red blister
Coming up in your palm. Your back is strong,
Young, not yet the broken chair

Barbie Doll
by Marge Piercy

This girlchild was born as usual
and presented dolls that did pee-pee
and miniature GE stoves and irons
and wee lipsticks the color of cherry candy.
Then in the magic of puberty, a classmate said:
You have a great big nose and fat legs.

She was healthy, tested intelligent,
possessed strong arms and back,
abundant sexual drive and manual dexterity.

Today I opened wide my eyes,
And stared with wonder and surprise,
To see beneath November skies
An apple blossom peer;
Upon a branch as bleak as night
It gleamed exultant on my sight,
A fairy beacon burning bright
Of hope and cheer.

'Alas! ' said I, 'poor foolish thing,

A Beautiful Little Fool
by Christen Kuikoua

In her smile, my heart takes flight, making me a beautiful little fool.
Since she stepped into my life, everything's rewritten, everything's cool.

Her presence, a gift that transforms mundane into a sweet surprise,
Turning ordinary days into moments that money can't buy.

With every curve of her lips, my world's painted in hues so bright,
I find myself dancing through days and dreaming through the night.

Her laughter, a melody that plays in the background of my days,

The Fading Blues
by Hudhaifah siyad

The fun of say blues,
Lights lit in pathways and walls,
That which makes pain go away,
Somewhere dreamt,
Ask me about it.

Through days of submission,
To souls darkened, naturally put,
Dulled and deemed dirty,
Somehow put,

Smiles I Remember
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was an experienced family therapist, helping families maintain functionality,
As wandering, starlit seasons maintain all nature, being rooted in practicality.

I loved preserving healthy relationships, that foundation of healthy societies;
And kept up a fruitful dialogue between the families, which relieved anxieties.

I, myself, had come from a happy home, never causing huge worries or fears,
For dear ones that I loved, never seemed to be leaving, as silvery cloud tears.

Friends dropped by like colorful fall, never failing to fetch the fondest smiles,

You looked at me with a smile upon your face.
by erato mymuse

Delightfully adorned as you walked down the stairs with grace
and I looked on in wonder as your beauty filled the place.
I found you so attractive and my heart began to race
when you looked at me with a lovely smile upon your face.
During that brief moment time itself stood so still in space
and I'll forever hold that fond vision in my memory's embrace.

Shadow of a Smile
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

shadow of a smile
a selfie in plum shadows
mysterious girl

dusky deep fragrance
living on the edge of June
thrills under the moon

nebulous image
a perfect moment captured
