Riding a Unicorn
by Petrouchka Alexieva  24th June 2024


I am riding my crispy-white unicorn

With sparkling star on his horn.


Where am I going?


Silver moonlight from above

Is painting a path

Among blossoming meadows

Of my dreams and desires.


I am riding my unicorn

Through the mist;

Barefooted, with veil on my hips,

Softly wearing my morning tiara, 

Cleansing gently my soul

In the whispering creek.


Where am I going?


I am riding

Towards the morning.

Don’t wake me up, please…

Summer’s solstice celebration

By Karen Pierce Gonzales 26th June 2024

The mid-year party begins at dawn,

mushrooms up towards the heavens

where white moon doves, unseen by the naked eye,

swoop down and circle our hearts until open.


Being at home here, we learn to fly without wings

while frogs, lichen, rocks, and bark

—rugged or smooth—

form a choir of sounds that always return us safely.


Among hosts, guests, and omens,

we toast one another’s light and shadows

as lunar bird feathers dust wine glasses of dusk

until sunset becomes a moonrise merlot.
