IMAGE & POEM (DECEMBER 2005)


LINEAGE

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

Over the water
trees slide open
their parasol of shade.

Beneath
a nude girl stands
wet from a swim
and whitening their shadow
of dark lace.

Wind-cast
her long braid sinks slowly
into the green haze
of summer.

On its soft-bristled tip,
a moth sways
keenly aware
the past is floating
in currents of wild grass.

There, shining stalks embalm
whispers of a man and woman
who made love at twilight;

who glimpsed their daughter's face
along the cheekbone
        of   a porcelain moon.
