Skylark, Vol. 5, Number 1, Summer 2017

Vestiges of Here and There


thistles among
weather-beaten bones
of the past
across this stolen land
so many spirits roam

an empty space
where the croft once stood
my toes curl
into that same soil
rooting me to home

lichen-splotched
stones emerge from tundra
we rest here
among the ancients
on the edge of extinction

of gray reindeer moss
crunch softly
underneath our boots . . .
no other sound, but breath
