earth note 59

provincetown, massachusetts

white underside of a humpback’s tail
a series of creamy sand dunes

position themselves
between purple sundown ocean spray
and a nest of juniper pines
their rough green branches
needling our impatience
of living
between morning and evening stars
a cricket song from the hollow
is a million voices

e b bortz beautifully snapshots nature in the form of ‘earth note’ poems which appear in a smattering of small magazines and online journals. He lives in Pittsburgh, PA but have poetry, will travel.
