A sampling of 15 poets published in the 2010 San Gabriel Valley Poetry Calendar

Erika Wilk


Through my window rain gives
a splattered view of wind chimes
suspended from a dreary sky
they sway, kissed by icy breath
offering a chorus of sounds

deep, rich, warm tones cause me
to think of woolen blankets
a hidden monastery
deep meditation
whereas lighter notes, clear and bright

bring to mind cleaning a chandelier
a flurry of snowflakes
settles on the chimes
they shiver and hope
not to lose their voices
