Puget Sound

Evening calms to a wren-song.
All day, clouds build, quick rain—
thunder beyond dark Oregon
hills—last drops still rattling down
through old cottonwoods. A thin
fog covers the warm, damp ground.

To the southeast, a half-moon
in clearing sky. Redwings rise, fan
out, settle. The heart asks: when
time yields such brief perfections—
light, dark, moments in balance—
can love last to its full season?

 

Published in Cider Press Review, Volume 15, Issue 2.

David Filer lives in Portland, Oregon and Puget Island, Washington (an island in the lower Columbia River).  His most recent books are Housekeeping, a chapbook of sonnets from Finishing Line Press, and The Fear of Love, a full-length collection from Plain View Press (both February 2012).
