Moondance; Celebrating Creative Women
Reflections Amid the Stardust

Freefall

by Darla Jasmine

Elegy For a Small City

by Michelle Rick

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.

A boy named Jack delivered my mail. He was the only person who came up to my nest at the top of my tree on a regular basis. I looked forward to his visits, however brief they might be. He was easy and plain spoken, his face so polished it looked rubbed raw.

My Garden Which Never Grows

by Eric Prochaska

Fable of the Cherry Tree

by Julia Simpson

The wind barrels down the mountain like an avalanche. It raids these houses and roads like a bandit, rummaging through our yards, scattering the order we have raked our lives into. It summons us to our doors and windows to see if someone is tapping on the glass -- but it is only a swirling void waving the arms of trees against the houses. If you step outside, it washes about you, tangling your hair, breathing on your skin, and somehow reaching inside you -- like Nostalgia -- and holding your breath won't stop it.

Perhaps this young man from the harsh desert was happiest of all when he took refuge under a certain cherry tree, spreading his cloak in her shade, there reposing to read books of science and philosophy until his eyelids closed gently over the tired orbs and he could snooze away an hour under the caressing branches.
