Poem a Week
by Gary Michael Dault

SUMMER POEM

my dog-words
shimmer
in the hot street

a poem
gets broken
by hoses
and hydrants

lawnmowers
too hot to touch
sit quietly
near a few pages
blown into a garden

two little girls
in sprinkler bathing suits
pick up
one of my poems

reading out loud
until every word
seems funny or not
and drop the pages
into a sewer grate

a bird
on the grass
pecks at a poem
puncturing
several “O”s
with its critical
beak

Some Trees
by Malgorzata Wolak Dault

 

Number 29

In her diary for December 1, 1151, the German mystic, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), noted that an ancient tree outside her casement window suddenly "began physically to move in the quiet light of midday. It's motion," she wrote, "seemed such that I and everything I knew or could imagine was present in that tree and shared the same fluid, energetic breathing. The privileged glimpse was gone in a moment, though I have no doubt the joyous movement continues still. I crave its beauty like food...."
--Barbara Lachman, The Journal of Hildegard of Bingen (New York: Bell Tower, 1993), p.2.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

Uzbekistan (November, 2019) – It was our last evening and it felt like a pending fear of missing out loomed over us as we doubled back through the Itchan Kala. Our rather friendly carpet merchant drove us back to our hotel through an unexplored gate, the raging vehicle rumbling over cobblestone. Almost miraculously a series of rather long standing (some bits no longer standing) Sufi tombs appeared, embedded into the fortified walls surrounding the original 5th century fortress city.
