LISA M CRONKHITE
How a Young Woman Makes Love to God 
She arouses Him in the middle of night, caressing her body as He cradles her thoughts. Hold me, let me know You'™re there, her shallow breath whispers. He carries her into a dream of sand, laying her near midnight tides. It is here she rests beneath Him'"under a swelling sky of blue'" layers of ocean rhythmically rise over, rocking her softly adrift in waves. She spreads herself ope'"aloft a blanket of sea, letting the current take her away, and feels the rush of Him inside. Lisa M. Cronkhite has published work in Bible Advocate, Clark Street Review, The Penwood Review, The Shepherd, and Fighting Chance Magazine.
Lisa, who resides in the U.S. with her husband and 2 children, suffers from Bipolar disorder and writes as a coping skill
for better understanding.

CAROL BORZYSKOWSKI
Dichotomy
I walk down Huff street, Anne Sexton on my headphones. Her words bypass my eyes ears uncover new meanings slippery as the idea of no heaven, hell, or supreme power, yet I harbor a persistent belief in ghosts. Anne, you and Sylvia haunt me. Any minute now I expect all hell to break loose from your visitations. Sylvia made me coffee this morning bumped the stove with her rump gave me a wicked wink. I don't believe in hell. I do believe in electric stoves. Listen Anne, can we talk? Put Sylvia on the extension, we need a three way connection. I want to talk to you about vodka bottle you left on my car seat, and about the bricks propped against the gas pedal. I don't believe in heaven. I do believe in drunk drivers. Before my walk, a man who heard me on the radio brought in his lovely sentimental poems for me to read. I cried, Anne, I really did. I thanked God that people still believe in poetry. I don't believe in God. I do believe in hauntings. I'm not that eager to make a mistake.

KARIANNA JOHNSON
Oceans
I feel the raging emotions Like the roaring water of the oceans Rushing to the shore Feeling it all from my core I feel overpowered by it all I just let myself fall Fall and let go of all hope So easy it is to tell to cope The wind rushes over the water The air is no longer hotter That coolness chills me I am snapped back to reality Until again there's high tide When underwater I hide Trying to control those waves Not one of those he saves Have to help myself on my own And look for a strong bone.
