Ito En Semifinalist Poems 2018

January 2018

winter thaw
a mockingbird jumps
from branch to branch

February 2018

river thaw
a quacking memory
drifts by

March 2018

empty nest
an echo of voices
I almost hear

June 2018

country walk
the scent of manure follows
a bend in the road 

September 2018

ebb tide
when leaving was all
I could think about
