Poem, Early Draft

I haven’t featured any new poetry for a while. This is an early draft of a work in progress, in effect just its beginning. I expect the poem to be considerably longer when completed.

Boathouse

She is painted blue and proud,
shining bright
in night fires;
igniting dawns.

Sitting by the river,
rounded aesthetics
rolling
down a verdigris valley,

herons rising
in glacial drifts
over wooden hives.

  1. I love when poetry stretches my imagination and challenges my intellect. You’ve done both here. I had to look up the word verdigris in my dictionary. Thank you for a glimpse into your process.
