how easily
fear can close
our eyes
our ears
and our
broken hearts
- Liesl
Scared of the rejection,
the chastisement,
the hurt.
But all I received was love.
- Katie
Oh that moon though
I hope you saw it
and howled 
at least once!

Her home painted red:
throbbing heart within a grove of trees,
pulsing with mystery.

I sleep through the night
On a bed of best intentions -
Kissed by God.
- Trudi
let it unfold
         from your anxious grip
release the corners
                     lean into the landing
- Tina
It’s so small
yet like a candle
a poem shines 
in a weary world.

my resolve is enough. 
my spirit rises in two small letters breathed deeply:
- Julie Ann
when people lead
leaders follow
said people 
in trees
to those on the ground
- Mara
