Poem – Daily Observations from Lutsen, MN

Daily observations from Lutsen, MN


#1
Rocky shoreline, we walked
with Leroy following closely
behind, grows when the sun
sets and the superior water
becomes frozen and black.

#2
Across the blackness there
is space, inhabited,
desolate, empty – except
today when I see each
stone and each snowflake.

#3
Starlight from galaxies
is ancient, yet strong, flickers
across black ice, across
my child’s eye.

#4
Away from the city we
revel in stars and constellations
we only see in textbooks and
through other’s eyes.
