Dream Brood, by Karen L. George

A man and woman cross a field
roost beneath knitted trees
squinting into fuchsia sun
they swim on the sound
of falling water

His hand on her thigh
pools like a bell
unfolds a moment
a window into
fine silence
bone blue

~ Found poem composed/modified from words in Lucia Perillo’s poem, “At St. Placid’s”
