va et vient

As November unleashes its cargo of gales, here , two new pieces for your eyes – fresh from the pen, they will take you across the mighty Atlantic.

Old Guards’ Line

Inside blue boreal forest,
fireweed,
hidden gem,
dreams under northern lights,
coniferous silence,
in between
bogs and fens –
lone army of
Jackpines,
so heavily mantled,
stand as giant chessmen
from Newfoundland & Labrador to
the last rocks of Alaska.

—————–

Day of The Gale

Semantics from the SW sky
ruffles feathers as
salt buds fly –
curlews,
shalders, gulls,
sanderlings, purple
sandpipers on one leg
will bite the verve, dust, sleaze & lies
from this hissing storyteller.
Taste of salt plastered
on your lips.
