my son finds a sour sugar pod—
one less berry moth

greens turn orange, yellow, brown, red;

waterfalls of wonderment

Lost
Kate Swinson

Wide eyes glassy blue.
Searching aisles, missing mama.
Should have held a hand.

Kate Swinson loves writing and hates spiders. She works mostly from her home office, which is just code for her bed. Kate will read anything she can get her hands on, and she can often be found rowing when she's not working the jobs that pay her bills. She has to write or her brain goes into overload, so she really appreciates people taking time to read her work.




Nirvana

Autumn leaves cascade
pungent pathways less traveled
hiking in the woods.

Etta

Singing from the heart
uninhibited passion
perfection, At Last.

Strong Coffee, No Tea

drug of robust aroma
nourishing mornings.

Monarch

The touch of a wing
flutterings felt in the breeze

beneath starry skies.

Rotating slower
lost milliseconds each year
time is running down.
