Gravity

By Nina Rhoades


She was jealous

of how simple

it’d be to feel in brevity.

They only seemed to love in moods,

while she composed intensity.

Every drop containing Distance,

Fever,

Passion,

Gravity.





Leaves

By Kimberlee Reynolds


Leaves

Perched upon the ground

Multicolored birds who have lost their feathers

Harbingers not of spring

but winter

Beautiful in their death
