Field Notes

This entry is part 26 of 73 in the series Morning Porch Poems: Winter 2011-12


What veils? What clouds?

Wing upon wing feathers the view.

The door swings between rooms.

Blast of air, cold rain. Not

ruin. I’ve only longed to find

what you said you lost in a dream:

mountains dissolved in lake water,

sunflowers turning like weather vanes.

Amulets among the cracked stones,

cross-hairs in the branches.


In response to an entry from the Morning Porch.

  1. This poem feels so spacious. Or it’s like a well-tuned, small stringed instrument. Anyway, it came to me today like a longed-for vacation. Your pick, I guess. But thanks.
