I have met a living dodo bird

there’s no longer a need for your old bones

Among life’s Josephines, there is the Josephine who Napoleon divorced out of a desperate need to produce blood offspring. Then, she turned to gardening & botany while Napoleon died saying Josephine with his last breath.

–elisabeth sowecke

This poem is dedicated to those who honor their true desire and harm none.

swoon in waves shake

the air blend in

with lilacs, the blooming

dogwood tree

there is so much love

in this


–ariella ruth


Lots of love from the Harry Smith Print Shop!

sat in lotus   on mat

& realized i’m not so


by purples


in time the refrain

shrouds luna (hello, moon)

open orange azalea   this

green earth

makes me cry   she’s



–meghan schardt


thanks very kindly for reading; peace & light to all you good people!

this poem is about (if poems can be about something) the relationship between living cities: cities that are thriving, innovative, supported, appreciated, and eco-beautiful, such as Portland, Seattle, Boulder, or Anne Arbor, & those dead cities that are depressed, over loaded, run-down,  abandoned & divided, such as Cleveland, New Orleans, Jacksonville, or LA.  


Meanwhile I am still

hating Emily Dickinson like the feeling I will one day house a tape
