December 2016 Open Reading Review

December, saying goodbye to 2016, there was a good turnout.
Always warmth in sharing creativity, inspirations and feedback.
I am thankful for all the efforts of our members.  Each person makes special every reading.
Keep the creativity simmering.  We will need it for the months ahead.  2017 will be a challenge.

~ “Innocent” ~
There is something peculiar about the ghost in the corner.

~ “Ohio” ~
You may rise sir.

Masako Izumi ( Japan )

~ “River” ~
The dealing between love and hatred makes the current upside-down.

Entitles Us — by Contrast —
To ceaseless Poverty —

~ “The Poets light but Lamps” ~  by Emily Dickinson
The Wicks they stimulate

She has given me the after hours numbers in case I feel anxious or suicidal.

Albert Sussler ( USA )

Wanting to pay the bill, protest three times.

Know the wind’s direction.

Panic on the horizon like a fiery dawn.

Finding himself transported out of the train and into the darkness peppered with distant stars.

Kelly sent the next hour wondering if there wasn’t really something else behind that face.

Shoichi Miyamura ( Japan )

~ “A Beggar” ~  by Shiro Murano
It is his existence that moves along with a soul like an infant with no relatives to turn to.

Somebody’s terminal must have been a railway instead of a station.
