Sarah St Vincent Welch #336 the knot in the net (for Kristen)




to find a detail a shadow a seed
a metal twist
plastic clip
petal
slip
stitch, a knot
make a net cast it
drag to the surf's edge
past breakers
the makers
haul back the morning
to an oar stroke
breath
the market on the sand
city lane light
pasture night
wild place
pattern of stories
jewels
bend to examine the pod the nut
the flowering of a heart
the gift given
no answering
feather ruffle
bird song
fish flap

fur stroke matt
wonder
