Important Details

August 25, 2008 at 4:58 am (Poems, Small Observations)


I’m oppressed by

the small details

I’ve forgotten

and am reminded of


But tonight I saw
a mother raccoon

lead her four small cubs
across Nestor Street


The simple purity of the

neighbours’ wild rose blooms

reminded me of Hanna’s face


The juniper berries were

tiny fog blue
replicas
of the earth


And the lavender

in our front yard —

disarmingly fragrant
