  1. Ha, stillness seems to have taken hold in me so fiercely, I only just now caught up with the wonderful stillness poems. Now diving into the current ones.

  2. Poem by T.S. Page:
    Low Melody

    Grown tropical, I
    live in the mango of the mind
    pink/orange sweet
    with brushy pit,
    I think, I wait, I sit.

    I once learned how to be kind
    how to compost inedible rind
    to feed the birds with it

    They sing for me too, along with my
    they sing for those who
    are earth-stained, hopeful brained,

    We nod in time once back inside
    their song materialized
    the beak that feeds the body
    is known.

    We are used,
    grown to sharpness
    quick to duck to ground.
    Good to see them, harvest worms,
    well-fed on softened fruit,
    we nod, pluck.
