Half light

July 26, 2020

black and grey silhouette
photographer’s
silvered gelatin image
of a ship, sails slack, motionless          
but for frills of velvet sea
that nudge, gently rock
like breath
masts black again pale sky

 

remnants of frost 
or forest fire

 

twist of torn tree 
hollow fallen
bone bleached through bark, grey 
hand-smooth 
open heart contorted
a wrench around its core 
as it fell

 

I want that spiral 
in a song

 

the pond a bowl
of light and sky
