Poems of the Week: “all i know of heaven” and “fox”


all i know of heaven

leafless winter morning
vines on cemetery wall
are covered in frost

there are no stars to be found
when one’s eyes are fixed
on the ground

and so putting our lips
level with that starry pool
we both drink our fill

each day,
the dog finds a sunny spot
in which to lay

the things we cherish
are all i know of heaven

 

fox

fox, silent, wise-whispered
and shadow-sleek
whispers in the wet night
to the warm silk, out of reach
just within your window sill
