Samira Kacemi

My Chariot in the Cobalt Blue Sky

Her hazy, cobalt blue eyes stared into the distant landscape.
Black short jacket, as short as her hair.
A small blue purse with flowers rests on her lap. And those hazel eyes
haunting her inner chambers as an echo without end…

Many people perceive autumn as a period of decay. Decreasing temperature, rain, and reducing sunshine can feel gloomy. Samira Kacemi, however, demonstrates a bright side of autumn.

Shauna Willetts

ArtAscent Artist of the Autumn call for artists

Autumn is like a book you’ve read before but have since forgotten. Every page reminds you of something you vaguely remember; it’s a journey to the place you’ve been. The sense of deja-vu is the base of the featured pieces by Shauna Willets.

Autumn on the Lower East Side

There are many street trees on the Lower East Side of Manhattan today, but when I was growing up there in the 1960s, the only ones we had were the Norway Maples in our church’s graveyard. I passed them every day going to and from school. They were how I gauged seasons…

Anne Bower

Potato Harvest, Pennsylvania, 1973

We never heard French Creek called a crik before–
it’s wide here and any fool’d know it’s a river,
curving slowly between locusts and willows,
bringing moisture to acres of potatoes,
lending just the right pastoral air…

Always a fabulous fall morning
when we take the boat out of the lake,
we have trusted the weatherman’s warning
succumbed to fear of a snowflake…

has softened only slightly
from the recent rain that
has dampened my spirit…

land in my lap, fall from my knee & unravel.
Carefree, I follow, down the passage, out the door,
along the path where mauve trunks of gum trees peel…
