of Creative
Women
 

The sweet song of Spring brings a harmony between heaven and earth, stirring our need to share life being created anew. A we shed the doldrums of Winter, the glory of rebirth appears: nestlings chirping ; flower petals unfolding to reveal their colorful glory; the playful young appearing for their first season in the sun. Come visit with our authors and artists who were inspired by the siren song of Spring. They earned our Best of Theme.



 
 

Fiction


 

Freefall

by Darla Jasmine

Still plunging timelessly through the sky, Sarah prepared to pull the rip cord, convinced the back-up parachute would not support her either, and that her body would soon be smashed against the earth or impaled upon a tree.



 
 

Poetry


 

Psyche: A Prose Poem

by Aimee Mardin



 
 

Non-Fiction


 

Molokai 2

by Alex Shih

I took off for the west side to see the Halava valley for the afternoon. For one stretch of the road there was no one else but me, as if it existed just for me. I realized this was the perfect place I had been looking for to do my screaming. I was on a beautiful but deserted road, in a rental car with the windows rolled up.



 
 

Song & Story


 

Mahalia's Children

by Christine L. Reed

The children had been lost since the dawn of the new moon. Mahalia was frantic. She had only left them for a moment to tie together two souls that were in danger of ripping away from each other.

Zen and the Art of Cuticle Maintenance

by Roberta Morgan

We do not need to hammer home this point of enjoying both pain and pleasure, to get into monthly menstrual cycles and of course, the multifaceted, mystical union of agony and ecstasy called childbirth. Would men be contemplative during menstrual and labor pains, thankful for their fruitfulness? Sure. They'd also be breaking furniture and doctors' arms.
