my poems in minerva rising!

light off branchesThe December issue of Minerva Rising is out! Within its winter-themed pages lie three poems of mine: ‘Agendas of Winter,’ ‘February View,’ and ‘March Snow.’ For those unfamiliar with Vermont winters – or at least, how they used to be – these present a range of experiences and connections. Quoted below, part III of March Snow:

III.
Late sun slanting into copper
casts an embered net about
treetops glistening through cloud,

each bare branch and twig adorned
in a surge of glint and glimmer;
sparks of spirited radiance

blaze, flicker and flare
magic spelled hope, divine
opening from the dark

portent of gentler light
rising ahead.
