Poem: A Moment In Her Beauty

Here's a poem for my talented and wonderful wife, Shanna. It was originally published in Wilderness House Literary Review.


A Moment In Her Beauty

she weaves clay,
sculpts fleece,
joining them
with her magic.

like meshed pentacles
hypnotize earth,
swim across looms,

each thread a strand
in the fur of a spirit;
each touch a leap
through gardens
of fabric—

she a sail
over loon-blessed waters,
guided by crystals
in her gaze—

blue eyes
like steppingstones
on which heartbeats
and tigers
