Shiner: Moves Towards Winter
West House Anthology
 
 

Weather moves towards
winter seen through bright
glass and streaming.
At night each star tokens

a little calm, we dare
a dark spoon of hope.
Whatever – it’s a gift, this
looking forward and back

and holding loss and
distance and between us
a night time smile of here, and
now touching of fragile arms.
