Prairie Fire - A Canadian Magazine of New Writing, Vol. 39, No. 2, Summer 2018

Celebrating 40 Years


Taking the Pulse of Winter

(solo rengay)


a large day . . .
the prairie fills
with sky

          curled in the toe of my boot
          a barn kitten

hoar frost . . .
a barbed wire fence
snags the sun

snowdrifts . . .
the cattle flank-deep
in stars

          the silver flash of our blades
          frozen slough

northern lights . . .
an old windmill stirs
up the night
