Old house for sale -
in the sidewalk cement,
motherís handprint

—Rosemary J. Gwaltney

About the author: Rosemary Gwaltney (mountainrecluse at yahoo.com):

I'm the mother of a large and wonderful family, now mostly grown. Most of our children are adopted, and have disabilities. Also Iím a 15 year veteran home school teacher. My husband and I, with only four children still at home, live high in the northern mountains of Idaho. I write haiku, assorted other poetry, and am working on a book.

My poetry has been published, or will soon be published, in Acorn, The Heronís Nest, Short Stuff, The Fairfield Review, and a book called The ABCís of Grief.

    eternal oak
    struck by lightning ...
    shattered lovers' initials

    Memories from
    the former landlords;
    traces of rosary

    vacant lot -
    tears of the
    weeping willow


    cherry blossoms
    this late in the year
