CLOSE WINDOW

 

 

 from Shores

Up stains hem of sky
Almost a sunrise
Whole lot of water
Heavy with churning
Hope the rain stops soon

Hope the rain stops soon
Just near the sunrise
At this point the birth
Canal curves toward sky
Light seen as a fall

Light seen as a fall
A thread of sunrise
Fetal head from earth
From folds of the plow
Never did find her
