Johanna Boal Poems

I was crumbled, like grains of sand
a boat, a canoe, a simple thing
made out of those trees, up there on that land.
I was carved lovingly, by tiny hands
...

2.

I’m in awe by you being there
Stepping out at my front door
Your iciness, coldness,
Produces white, glittery
...

As we emerge, we can see them.
Some come together, hunkering down
Many are dispersed on their own,
Dark and hazy in their remoteness,
...

There is a great attraction on our fridge
A butterfly on a journey from Kellogg’s
Never moves?
David from Florence, protects
...

Behold,
A sea bed with
Oversized edgings
Made prying,
...

A hint of families coming together;
olden ships coming through rough seas
the Atlantic - to Co Wicklow - Bray Head
...

Sometimes the sea looks navy at Bray Head
County Wicklow has strewn sewed carnations
blown in with olden times, the Esplanade
Victorian hotel: the intended
...

The Best Poem Of Johanna Boal

Imagining A Vessel In A Rock On A Beach

I was crumbled, like grains of sand
a boat, a canoe, a simple thing
made out of those trees, up there on that land.
I was carved lovingly, by tiny hands
and floated on that big blue sea.
The waves crushed me and broke me
now I am here in this inlet,
a family huddles around me.
