Dragonflies

zipped back and forth
as if the air were ripped and they were stitches
between the stippled cattail-tips. Spangles
of sunlight caught on angles
in the tangled cobwebs dangling
from the shingles on the shed-roof,
gemmed the hemlocks and the cattail stems
like flipping coins, or silver bangles
or dipping dragonflies.

Collection available! Knocking from Inside

Life at High Latitudes

Evening swallows the whole day
and morning swallows the night
at high latitudes. Charcoal gray
clouds like pillows of white
eiderdown billow over the deep.
Drifting in timeless semi-daylight,
drifting in shallow water-like sleep,
unclocked, chimeless and half-bright:
the sun parallels the horizon
and dwells on the edge, never setting
nor ever really quite rising.
Time flows so freely here, surprising
me with its easy looseness, forgetting
time-trapping nooses of human devising.
