What's Happening In Our Poet's World

Lois J. Funk
I just won the $100 cash prize for the Naani Poem Contest on FanStory! 
 The naani poem consists of four lines of 20-25 syllables.
 My winning poem:

Tender are the tears
of a man who cries,
not for lost love or the absence of love,
but because he loves
.

Let's senryu

a rubber band
stretches only so far
until it collapses

Susan Campion-



tears slip through
white eyelashes-
life is short


Melissa Russell- 

adrift-
I'm lost in poetic
punctuation


Melissa Russell-


weathervane
atop the steeple's cross
man's doubting spirit


Lois Funk-

 
ample supply
of bibs, diapers, and monitors
Alzheimer's wing


Lois Funk-

at the casino
the bus people frighten me
I see bus people... 


Alvin Thomas Ethington-


kids so excited
to christen new trampoline
they all jump for joy 


Phillipa Ross-
