Poetry of the day


Winters` Ship


The light has changed,

turned clear with turning

of winter, like far seas rounding

turn their backs on continents,

and lifetimes.

Streaming into my whole house

like the ship alone voyaging,

this yellow light without heat;

what is left after leaving all else.

A stillness of deep motion;

as if I have died

in the best way to die;

as if I am born

and no one knows of it.
