Grateful to Rich Youmans, Editor for the guidance & publication.

Congratulations to all featured poets.


Each day we are forgotten by ourselves
through ourselves,
For we do not believe, in who we are.

~ Mimi Novic, The Silence Between the Sighs

Away from the hustle-bustle of city life and traffic, my friend and I walk on the dirt path to the village pond. A binocular and a powerful camera rest on my friend’s shoulder.

Water chestnuts grow thick and lush, coloring the pondwater forest green. I strain to see through the fog. Far off, white-breasted kingfisher perches on a boulder, perhaps waiting for sunshine. My friend picks up her camera.

I wait empty-handed, the song deep inside me.
