The Refuge - Powerful, emotion-filled piece that speaks clearly to what so many women have to face. ~Lisa

The Polish Social Worker - A fascinating piece! I assume that the story is set in present-day USA. Yet it has an old world feeling, as if set in Poland--perhaps in the 1930s. It also seems to have significant symbolism. I would love to know more about the background of this story. ~Virginia

A Beautiful Try - I absolutely love this poem. The sensory details are so rich, I felt like I was along on this journey into the South with the author. Such beautiful language. Thank you. ~Carol

Water Nymph - This is simply beautiful, the scene is right there before the reader and all one wants is to turn left a thousand feet from here and gaze at "morning hair", listen to Hafiz and hope to read more from Martha Landman. ~Noel
