A Dry-Stone Wall Near Coleraine (For Seamus Heaney) - Poem by Leslie Philibert

As if the pale stones
share the warmth
between two sides;
sea and field cut,
early light and full morning;
the path weathered and slow.

    I like the 'breath' of your lines.. such a short poem has a deep intensity and a great imagery..

    Thanks for sharing, Leslie.
