Dance Past It

Very pleased that my poetry–“Dance Past It”–appeared in the January issue of Front Porch Review.

And, further pleased that my poem “Maples” will appear in the April, 2017 issue of Front Porch Review!

Front Porch Review (http://frontporchrvw.com) is a nicely done and thoughtful online journal of skillful, smart, and striking short fiction, poetry, and essay.

Do take a look!

Dance Past It

The voice ‒ from breakfast ‒ eludes me now.
I toyed with it,
ignored its clamor
ran away.

That voice ‒ so loud ‒ is silent now.
It doesn’t pursue,
it does not wait.
It’s vanished ‒ like frost peeling from my roof in morning sun.

Moment by moment,
rain drips off the holly’s black branch,
slides into the cold earth,
and I, silly in the winter light ‒ dance past it.
