Sunflowers by Jenny George
"Having died / all the way back to the root, I grow again / into a version of the thing I love"
The Hand by Mary Ruefle
"You know the answer, you suspect / you are the only one"
The Light Continues by Linda Gregg
"When the sun / is gone, the light continues / high up in the sky for a while. / When I return, the moon is there. / Like a changing of the guard."
Instructions for the Journey by Pat Schneider
"It’s easy to lose this tenderly / unfolding moment. Look for it / as if it were the first green blade / after a long winter."
The Letter by Linda Gregg
"Perhaps my happiness proves a weakness in my life. / Even my failures in poetry please me."
