My Hand

~ By Leslie McKay and Ingrid Bruck


smelling breakfast

egg pretzel

warm sugared donuts


falling for a bracelet

made of summer filigree


work horses for sale

crazy quilts burst color

busy hands plough and sew


alpaca blankets

swathed in luxury

my hand


a crowd in black denim

our feet slip in mud


glowing pearl necklaces

a red beret in the distance

at one with everything



In Motion

~by Dee Aubert, Ingrid Bruck, 

S.E. Ingraham, Susanne Margono, 

Leslie McKay and Julie Naslund


tiger leaps through flames

alighting on silken paws

fledgling safe in jaws            


green crowds into roadways

high-water rush of springtime        


winds whip willow leaves

fling finished catkins to earth

scent of grass fresh mown        


soggy bits of straw

cling to wet bottom trousers

steady strings of rain            


on fantasy island

jumping gates to take the sun        


celestial flare

solar arc across the blue

season to season
