Those Evenings I Remember by Carolyn Oulton



Those Evenings I Remember


Cobweb rain, moon fading

like a dusty footprint.


Hawthorn bursting pimples

on the shadow’s edge.


Making a lighthouse of my fingers,

left foot weighed at anchor by the fence.


Asking far too many questions

in my head.
