Susan Constable

 Dark Clouds

after a week
of unsettling dreams
she watches him
with a thousand eyes,
keeps her back to the wall

hands, we’re told,
are more memorable
than a face:
     her delicate fingers,
     the size of his fist

petals curl
during a drought …
losing her
I inhale the scent
of white gardenias

a dark cloud
hangs over their house
month after month
they dress in the grief
that consumes them

Susan Constable lives on the west coast of Canada, where she’s been writing mainly haiku and tanka for the past nine years.  She is currently the tanka editor for the online journal, A Hundred Gourds.

a crack in winter
just wide enough
to let spring in


clang of a bell
newborn calf

Vibeke Laier

winter packed
in four boxes
last year’s clouds

Vibeke Laier lives in Randers, Denmark, she has been writing and studying poetry since 2012, but her interest in the art of haiku stretches back to when she was a schoolgirl.



Ed Bremson


she was a poet
in love with a man
from the land of song

on her dressing table
a diary with cover
coral pink

on its pages
her beautiful thoughts written
in violet ink

she wore blue for luck
ate poetic things –
tulips, roses

and stared out the window
as rain fell in
the rusty bucket

Ed Bremson, MFA, Raleigh, NC

You make butterflies
open inside
my ribcage;
an uncertain
yet comforting
