QUIET SKY VIGNETTES by KRISTEN ZIMMER

a lone heron watches
as the wind allows
the trees to touch
their long lost lovers.

it’s a spring-sunny day
made for Harbord Street.
cream clouds wispy
with winter’s dying breath
against a morning-coloured sky.

the cool autumn air
under the first-quarter moon
breathed into my lungs
like untouchable water,
reminding my skin
of the autumns of before.
