  1. Through the window, the pine branches swing in the breeze. The sun melts the snow lingering on the needles. Not so long ago I covered that pine in yellow ribbons, to welcome a son home from Afghanistan. Now the branches are empty but for the chickadees who shelter beneath its wings. They will stay empty, because he is never coming home.

  2. Here is my entry for the contest.
    By the way, I really enjoyed the interview with Allen Grey, many thanks for publishing it.

    The glass of the window is streaked like a watercolour left to run in the rain,
    beaten across with greens and blues lashing one on top of the other,
    Prussian blue skies mixed up on a palette of ever-changing, Van Gogh trees,
    and everything strikes down, down, down on the cold translucent pane,
    the view obscured but the colours vibrant in the falling rain.
