Winter Joy Geese headed south ice on the pond corn’s all been picked wood fills the shed snow on the bridge frost in the ground whispers of winter flowing around season of silence season of cold season of stories still to be told celebrate Solstice longer days too winter-bright stars sparkle ‘round you cross over the bridge make your own path through the forest and trees find animal tracks

and outside to my final destination. The house sits red against the snow on the vast expanse of cold, gray ice. Inside, I know the calm of the minnowed line dropped into the depths; it skims the bottom, searches for today’s catch. Silence… the only sound the cracking of ice, like gunshots in the distance. I wait for the thrill of the tug, the one-on-one dance of bringing forth the prize, of discovering what lives below the surface, forced up into the bright light of day. Barbara Jacobson has an MFA from Hamline University. She lives with her husband and her dog, Emmy, in the beautiful town of Hastings, near the confluence of the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers. Barbara has worked as a paralegal for the Dakota County Attorney’s Office in Hastings for 18 years. In her spare time she enjoys writing poetry and short stories, and is currently working on a novel. The inspiration for Ice Fishing comes from the many avid ice fishermen in her family.

Tempest: my mid-western position Bora: a mass of howling frustration swung a northerly direction: when my seasons are the bitter part of what comes after or before the storm. Cat’s Paw: the mid-upwind, up and down of me, trading winds for freezing rain, impermanence in long exhales, heavy sighs. Killing Frost: that inherited northerly air mass: there is no livability inside these dog days framed in my window’s frost laden glass. Westerlies: my warm and cold weather fronts rotate to the constancy of classical mechanics, immeasurably chaotic. Sea Puss: in stormy sunless waiting hours my seasonal undertows wake my Algonquin sisters tucked underneath snow. Breakdown: my intemperance: some damp blue weighted indifference that resists explanations, latitudes of me, at any given moment. Victoria Price is the founder and director of Writers Rising Up to Defend Place, Natural Habitat, Wetlands (since 2001). The 501 (c) (3) literary nonprofit is based in Eden Prairie.

Phylis Campbell Dryden Lebanon, Pennsylvannia

April Sunset Molten, unrelenting-eye-stabbing, perfectly Vesuvian -smoldering like lava, hot as melted lead, two stars erupt, two suns-one echoing the other--, a shadow sun, a scorch. Blazing through twigged branches hard with frost, volcanic rings of fire explode the sky. Persistently, they tease. Searing icy edges of heavy winter clouds, they taunt, hint scaldingly of spring. Born in Vermont, Phylis Dryden emigrated to upstate New York when in her twenties, then moved on to south-central Pennsylvania a quarter of a century later, where she was an English professor at Lebanon Valley College for fifteen years. Now retired, she devotes part of her time to nature photography and to storm water management efforts through membership in a clean water alliance association.

Joseph Stanton Honolulu, Hawaii

Ducks The mallard ducks that attend our college study us at the pond behind Krauss Hall and waddle at Varney Circle’s edge and through the pseudo farm beside the walls of thick rock that contain our School of Art. A pair of old ducks and one almost grown waddle here and there, and their long necks dart for bugs and seeds—their quacks a song of inquiry not quite academic. They want to know why we are in their way and, seeing us coming, they quack quack quack a soft complaint, as if to say

my soul, propped next to me chin upon hands, eyes cast to nothing it seems, save the shadows upon the roof next door, bereft and alone. The neighbor lives more controlled we’ve noticed of late, fixed in her garden held together by its growth. What do her eyes give, we wonder. Honey, or sage, leaves that are smoldered. Space, perhaps an upstairs and a downstairsrooms with cozy chairs. Her eyes give God’s twinkle, we believe. Why else would her flowers be so proud?

Brendan O’Hara is currently doing his writing work at Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He is a High School English teacher by trade, but is taking some time off from teaching to pursue writing more rigorously.

Sir Hopper of Coleus Usually, the grasshopper, (dressed in his crunchy, crusty, army- camo-green), is a thief and vagrant. He eats anything he can find, feasting on weeds in empty lots or on fields of corn or wheat. He taunts stray alley cats who stalk him. He spits tobacco juice on the hands of small-town boys who manage to catch him. He cares not whose property he destroys. But, somehow, when he is perched in the midst of the reds and purples of the coleus plant, holding on with his prickly legs to the velvety, green-trimmed leaves, he is transformed into a knight. He is a conqueror of all he surveys, feeling quite regal and privileged. In his suit of armor with gold and black trim, he basks in the sunlight, arrogant and haughty.

Connie Biltz is a freelance writer and poet. Other poems she has written can be read at her blog, “More Where That Came From” at the following link: http://www. conniebiltz.com.

Martin Willitts Jr Syracuse, New York

Calendula

(Calendula arvensis) A flower representing October On the Day of the Dead, the sun is bleeding, and I have this incredible cure in these clock-shaped yellow flower petals. I could save so many things by the time you wake, but the foretelling of winter is not one of them. The spirits can rise and they can fall in the Fall rush of deadness of leaves. We can only digest so much but the news is not one of them. Even now, someone is denying science or ancient herbs. I have seen where marigolds protect tomatoes, yet people look incredulously at me. They say, global warming is not the sign of the End of Times, while praying for doomsday, counting the days like these petals. Tomorrow, this day of the dead will be over, the calendula will wither, the sun will tilt, and we will not digest the coming of age, our hearts ticking slow as a snow shower. They will say, nothing is happening; it is all temporary. Already, the trees are tossing bouquets of yellow leaves, already forming buds for the next revival. Martin Willitts Jr is a Quaker, organic gardener, and retired Librarian living in Syracuse, New York. He was nominated for 6 Pushcart and 6 Best of the Net awards. He provided his hands-on workshop “How to Make Origami Haiku Jumping Frogs” at the 2012 Massachusetts Poetry Festival. He won the William K. Hathaway Award for Poem of the Year 2012. He has 5 full-length and 20 chapbooks including national contest winning “Searching for What Is Not There” (Hiraeth Press, 2013). Martin Willitts Jr.’s forthcoming poetry books include “Waiting For The Day To Open Its Wings” (UNBOUND Content), “City Of Tents” (Crisis Chronicles Press), “Swimming In the Ladle of Stars” (Kattywompus Press), “A Is For Aorta” (Kind of Hurricane Press), “Martin Willitts Jr, Greatest Hits” (Kattywompus Press), “The Way Things Used To Be” (Writing Knights Press), “Irises, the Lightning Conductor For Van Gogh’s Illness” (Aldrich Press).

Sunday Milkweed Ghosts Along mountain path milkweed a borderline between frost-limp fields and trodden dirt once an Indian trail … milkweed pods split, silk spilling forth white as coming snows, starred with seeds … from gray cocoon burst into dance so transient, so delicate, people burst into tears. Here monarch caterpillars used to feed on leaves, weaving their own cocoons. Here a shudder of stalks in wind. Butterflies. Indians. Talk of how they flew free. Of why they don’t come back. Susan Deer Cloud is a Catskill Mountain Indian. An alumna of Binghamton University and Goddard College, she has received a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship, New York State Foundation for the Arts Poetry Fellowships, and an Elizabeth George Foundation Grant. Her most recent book is Hunger Moon (Shabda Press 2014). She loves milkweed and monarch butterflies. http://sites.google.com/site/ susandeercloud/

Moored Moored. The solid weight Of pilings, wood like an anchor, And the flood of sunlight following a path Across the sky. The elements conspire Here in silence. Winter sounds forming A promise that lasts for months And that holds in its being - change, Regular as a heart beat. “Wait here,” it seems to say, And feel the season change. Listen to the tune the winter wind Sings. It contains the notes Of spring.
