Laura Gail Grohe


Snow thickens night air;
siren screams the only sound
as I walk the dog.


Parade routes in spring
now empty of all but snow.
And one old woman.


Air smells surprising,
clean, no exhaust or dog shit.
February’s gift.

Laura Gail Grohe spent her formative years living in downtown Boston, playing in the fountain at Christian Science Center. She currently makes her home and writes her poetry in Greenfield Massachusetts.

The Finale
Rose Kowaliw

The blood red sunset
draws nocturnal birds of prey—
Night rides on black wings.

Rose Kowaliw

The wind licked my face
a thousand names on his tongue…
I reached up for one.

Rose Kowaliw enjoys creating art and Haiku and lives in New Hampshire with her family. She spends summers at the ocean walking the beach at dawn searching for sea glass. "I love the sparse beauty of a Haiku like the tides that are drawn to the moon."

La Luna
Joseph Hesch

The searchlight full moon
wore a veil of windblown cloud—
a December bride

Joseph Hesch

Chains of starlings stretch,
shivering, from pole to pole—
roadside rosaries

North of Schroon
Joseph Hesch

Highway gallery—
snowy landscapes framed by our
rusted truck's windshield

Two Haiku
Bill Cullen

we ski at sunrise
parting the frozen waters
hush of new powder

a shrinking snowman
holds a sign bigger than him:
"Fight global warming!"

His senryu and haiku have appeared in many journals over the years including Asahi/International Herald Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, Frogpond, and Mainichi Daily News.

drink a Corona
listen to My Sharona
days of youth are flown
