Today's poem is by Rachel Vigier
It's what I have left to offer you
the ripple of a flax field in flower
the flow of a river slipping to sea
the weight of a whale flipping over.
Say it's images from a life left over
or the lust of memory
wanting its place of origin
before the blue fades, before
the heft and swiftness disappear.
