Atlas Poetica, Number 36, February 2019

wintertide

glissading down
steep mountainsides . . .
we are horses
with our snowy tails
streaming in the wind

every year
winter casts its spell . . .
like children,
we are bewitched anew
by the signature of snow


the length of night

yet again,
sleep eludes me . . .
an owl and I
ponder the eternal
question of identity

insomnia . . .
mice at play
inside
the thin walls
of my dreams


girlhood

we brew tea
from the dark leaves
of cat's whiskers
but first, you tickle me
with their stamens

we chase
each other across
cloud shadows,
nothing under our feet
but this prairie sky

we once played
in this tangled garden,
enchanted
by the quiet fireworks
of bergamot and butterflies
