The Harmony of Wounded Skies

A sestina poem about the many faces of nature amidst climate change

Did you hear her cry out
amongst the battering of wounded clouds?
those elongated days buried like tepid hearts
reaching across oceans with souls vast
to wonder if a crab’s shadow on coral reefs
inscribed poetry from coral polyps in mourning




Stories that matter. Emotion first and foremost.
