e b bortz Pittsburgh, PA

earth note 52

big pine key, florida

a morning winter star 6am
rising fast
red black southeast shadows
coral water lips sealed in secrecy
pelicans     gulls     turkey buzzards
footbridge squatters
next to highway one
the traffic snarls
an ocean mimics a mirror
meets the sun


(drawing by Bree)

e b bortz will have a collection of earth notes and other poems by Least Bittern Books in coming months. He beautifully snapshots nature in the form of ‘earth note’ poems which appear in a smattering of small magazines and online journals. Bortz lives in Pittsburgh, PA but have poetry, will travel.
