Suzanne Murray ‏
Wind touches my face
a lover’s gentle caress
trees feel the same hand.

Julia Doria
Nobody said anything.
That’s how things go down.
Ignorance.
Fear.

Pierre Mhanna
Eight to five job…
the bird at my window
teasing with his smile

Mike Rehling ‏
outside the zoo
a family of refugees
feed the pigeons

Therese Sellers
While you were away,
the magnolias bloomed, froze, died.
How was Italy?

I can’t wait to read everyone’s micropoems!
