As clouds cannot one moment hold their form,
So life moves on through weariness and mirth,
And death is more significant than birth.

The Big Black Storm

by Renwick Berchild

Windstorms have battered my life for days, treble the rain,
tintinnabulation on the streets, a highway roaring like a sea of heaves
of grimness, mornings glamsy, murdered pink some dawns, strewn
with hoods and caps and umbrellas, and the grey swallows up
the goldfinches’ wings, the stellar jay sky, it’s hidden somewhere above.

Storms have no vows to speak,
refineries of ejecta and longing,
streaked with insurmountable ugliness and beauty –

The voyeur in love with chastity, the bones unhollow
and growing on skin as hair,
light as a panther walking on the promenade.
It’s all to me, quite riveting.

ominously warning
the wise to flee
to find shelter
from the coming storm

This mother’s heart has been pierced.
“A soft answer turns away wrath.”
The rebuke sits heavily on my ears.

We Shattered Our Faith in the Lightning

by Renwick Berchild

From this angle, you say, the Holy Ghost
looks like an ibex, sauntering its way down the slope,
folding paper, in its coal hooves,
slitting the white fish belly
of the mist.

storms upon the scene

An Unnatural Storm

by Nick Anthony

A flash of lightning catches my eye.
From steel beams brightness springs
Bringing vibrant, ephemeral life
To the skeleton being constructed
Across the station parking lot.

Awaken Me

by Seafarrwide


She walked outside the air sacristy quiet

The sky as black as a devils soul

Bulging heavy and foreboding

Sooty clouds churned and rolled

Buckling with aqueous weight

She hugged herself tight

I look out over the valley
To the mountains
And row
Upon row
Upon row
Upon row
Of prickly needled pines

Hiding the evil light,
Angelic tears
Stream down,
Washing the filth

I often think of that time between May and June,

that time between me and you.

When you made me my very best

and I made myself my very worst.
