         on the stove

  dusk deepens -
  the blue flame of the stove
  seen in her eyes
                                 Noor Singh Khalsa


     canning day
     from grandmother's stove
     the smell of sour cherries

          spring cleaning . . .
          another universe
          behind the stove

        whistling shrilly
        atop the rusted old stove 
        a mockingbird 
                                    Ferris


   dinner fight-
   heat from the stove
   lingers, too
                            neca


        howling wind
        on the stove
        kettle whistles
                                      Carolyne

      the smell of rising bread

            frost on the fields
            inside, Mother's welcome home
