Two poems by Ann Howells article

 

 Canoeing                                                                                         

 

 

The fragile bones

of a fish

are etched in black rock—

shale stacked

like a deck of playing cards.

 

A white goat

leaps outcrop to boulder

and the ridge protrudes

knobbed like the backbone

of a terrible lizard.

 

From our yellow canoe

we gaze up and up and up—

cannot imagine

those keen-bladed peaks

as sea bottom

 

or the whirl of stars

we see at night—

so many dead

but still we see

their light.

 

 

 




Perseid Showers                                                                              

 

Lightpoints through

an upturned sieve

 

cold white starlight

illuminates nothing

 

star-dusted pansies

petals edged in ghost light

 

blazing meteorites

enflame the sky

 

alien alphabets inscribe

thin air

 

time’s margin

burns to cinder
