still at the edge
of its shadow --
the frog

Peggy Willis Lyles
clear water
a magpie's song drops
into the pond

Lorin Ford

a few green buds --
the turtle pokes his head
through the sky

Hortensia Anderson
lake in the mist --
hearing it reclaim
a fish

Melissa Dixon

wind song
the slight stir of my reflection

Deborah Russell
