The North Is Winter - Poem by Leslie Philibert

Ringing cold. Nameless stars.

A coastal trawler
With a ballast of dead souls
Shaken into the waves.

The night tugs at my sleeve
As a child would do.
Nameless cold. Ringing stars.

    a well penned short poem, Leslie, that speaks of wintertime through a terse but highly symbolic language.. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
