East Coast Retort
tho' the sun rises
over the ocean (hear?)
focuses the eye-squinting whiteness.
above the waves
the night takes leave
light and colour emerge.
the wind not yet unfurled her flag
across the stubborn plain
stillness heavy-weight on the river
forestalling that which was the night
afore the mountains
Absolutely beautiful! I'm reading your anthology tonight. Hooray!
