by Emme Richards

So many to choose, far too
many to see.
Walking briskly down an aisle;
searching for the perfect one.
the Man in the Moon will
appear tonight. With
the help of this gadget,
hiding in its cold,
uninviting store
where lights blink;
electric wires sing.

I am called, my name whispered,
by a bronze apparatus.
Twinkling lens like stars it will find,
a sturdy,
determined tripod,
beckons me to take it home.
Impulsive hands grab. Before you can say,
"Sky Searcher!" we walk into black night.


by Jaeda Moyer

Failure knows success.
Every person has something
that seeps deep into their skin
with the word: failure.
Building a home, just
for it to burn with nothing left but
a thick layer of ash,
feels like ultimate failure.
Rebuilding a foundation
over the rubble
is the first sign of success.

Failure unveils the power to withstand a blow;
becoming building blocks to success.
Structures built over scarred ground
contain stories and memories.
Walking into a house
that had once fallen; knowing
you were able to stand back up,
is the ultimate form of success.

by James Everett, 1998

Truth knows lies
in a courtroom of lawyers
suppressed under a mask of honesty.

A lie knows truth
in children making excuses;
and tries in vain to be what it is not.
